I would gladly, but since I've just finished my exams I'm only starting to write it for the hungarian contest. All I have to do is gather my notes and maps and revamp them, so it'll be done by the end of July, but due to work and other everyday "issues" the end of June is impossible at the moment.
A humble fan of classic fantasy literature and old-school rpgs - both the tabletop and digital kind. You can find my ramblings, rants, reviews at the Vorpal Mace blog.

Entries have closed!
I received a total of five adventures; my thanks to the dedicated DD'ers who made time to create and submit their works.
As I didn't get the necessary ten entries it looks like my game shelf will survive this one intact. But I've decided to give each of the five entrants a free copy of the DD hardback before it becomes available for general sale.
It won't be ready for a while yet, but our five contributors will be among the first to get copies.
Congratulations guys, I'll be contacting you individually with the details.
In the meanwhile, I'll be making our five DD adventures available for everyone to download. Enjoy
Hey WOTE, I'm sorry I didn't submit an adventure. I really wanted to but I'm not used to that and couldn't figure out how to make something short and true to the overall idea I had in mind.
I can give you another adventure once I see how other people did it. Or, I could submit something that is more than 4 pages lol.
I am thankful to all the original creators of this hobby and to all the work done by it's current guardians. Every time we play, we get to visit a different world, explore it, marvel at it's beauty....and take treasure from the bad guys!

A quick update on the state of these short adventures.
I actually received four entries, not five; one person had submitted theirs twice and I got confused.
All four entrants will get a free copy of the hardback edition of DD as thanks for their efforts, and they'll also be among the "first on Earth" to get them. Depending on exactly how the shipping works out, there is every chance they'll have their copies before I have mine!
It was my intention to reformat the entries into a "standard" DD adventure format, but it turns out that's not quite as straight forward as I had hoped. I also note that most of the entries contain some "non-DD" stats and terms which I was hoping to fix up.
My working plan is finish the DDNext alpha text, and get that out into the wild first.
Then I'll make the four DD adventures available to you shortly after that.

I've done a few very minor modifications to the submitted DD adventures (adding the license if it was missing, converting "1d6" to "1-6", converting damage to 1-6, etc.) and uploaded them to a file share.
That means you can now download all four entries for free! Get them here people (a link to four folders, each folder contains the file(s) for one of the four adventures).
