I purchased an original version of keep on the borderlands to run some games for my family. A couple pages in and the nostalgia factor caved a bit. I realize that Gary left it somewhat unfinished to encourage new players to make it their own, however, there is only so much work that I want to invest in Restwell Keep. I'm having to create 'read aloud' descriptions of every zone, organize the keeps forces into detachments and stat them as groups, give NPCs descriptions and backstories and hooks, and come up with city events.

I realize that the style of play evolves over time and part of my work is to get this module sandbox ready.

At the end of the day I'm making a whole new module. And probably somebody else already has.

Can anyone here recommend a good sandbox ready keep? I don't care what system it's in. I looked at Morgansfort and ironically it takes the same format as Restwell Keep. It's the same amount of work.

Thanks in advance

It's the sort of thing I would handle on the fly. A few notes or just a sense of what I want to see, and I'd improvise it (and once something's established, I'd try to remember to make a note of it for future reference). But I know that doesn't work for everyone.

Sorry I can't be more help. But having 1000 details to keep track of just never works for me, and then I can't find stuff and I have to make it up anyway...

Yep ditto
Respectfully you’re making it a tad too hard on yourself. You wanna make it a great experience for your players but at the same time it needs to be fun for you. Let some thugs slide and rely on your on the spot imagination.
