Long Bear Valley is a Cascadian Fantasy Hex-Crawl for 3rd level adventurers. Begin in hex 1. Giant sword ferns, fallen cedars, and the ever-pounding rain limit travel to one hex per day; every step must be earned with a machete. The valley is encircled by cliff-faced mountains, except hex 1 which exits homeward to the south. The adventurers must return to hex 1 within three weeks to catch a convoy back home.

This was the first hex crawl I've done, despite wanting to get into the format for quite some time, and I had an absolute blast. This quick-to-run adventure strikes the right balance between having enough going on in each hex, but also having some down time to let adventures rest and recovers from their wilderness trek. There's a good mix of social and combat, and all encounters are slightly off the wall and could be played straight or played as a complete farce.  Great work!
