A Hero’s Tale: 9 2e Adventures In One

D&D A Hero's Tale

I’m a big fan of game modules — especially ones with great story hooks that you can use on the fly. A Hero’s Tale is one such module. Written by none other than Monte Cook, this module is actually a collection of nine short adventures — just the thing for a harried DM short on time, but needing something engaging for his players.

A Hero’s Tale Contents

A Hero’s Tale was released in 1996 at a full 64 pages. Each story can be played independently, or used in a sequence.

A Hero’s Tale Artwork

Like most Dungeons & Dragons modules from this time period, the artwork is amazing. Jeff Easley painted the front cover in a muted, fairy tale style reminiscent of a Brothers Grimm story while the interior art is nothing short of spectacular. The interior illustrations were provided by John Snyder, Arnie Swekel, and Stephen A. Daniele.
