Naturally it’s still a connected trilogy and the flow of events still require a few specific things to happen to flow as intended, but we did try to reduce the “railroading” which had been one of the main complaints of the original.
There is a short loosely linked mainly because it takes place in Corvis adventure where the PCs get hired by a gang to do some work to hinder a rival gang. The hardcover is also more durable, so you can keep your originals safe on the shelf and not worry as much about tearing either the originals or the hardcover up too much.

Wayne marked it as to-read Apr 03, Seacat Editoin are right– Alexia was on the cover of all three original modules as well, and it is a nice piece of MW art.
When we game, I’ve been using my laptop and the official PDF version instead of the book. This is a great world. And a great adventure for a new or seasoned DM to send her adventurers on.
