A Stealthy Thief

I thought this micro-adventure was a bit too micro. The opening scene and NPC information was good and I liked some of the descriptive text about the environment, the manor, etc. Some of the NPC speeches were competently written. I liked the artwork.

However, I think there are a few problems.

(1) The plot is very, very simple. Someone is stealing the lord's cattle, there is one obvious place to look for the guilty party, sure enough he's there, confrontation, and the adventure is over. I realize it's a "micro" adventure but it really should have another beat or a twist somewhere.

(2) Of the six pages, two are taken up on NPC background material. It's nice to have them fleshed out a little, but for a quick micro adventure, everything should be relevant to the story and a lot of the material isn't. It provides hints and ideas but in this very space-constrained format, I think they should have built the main plot out a bit more.

Not bad but not great.
