You mean, beyond the adventures connected with FF gamebooks or suggested in Blacksand book by Arion Games? There is also the Beggars of Blacksand amateur adventure (http://www.ffproject.com/beggars.htm http://www.ffproject.com/download/BEGGARS.PDF) that is very nice.

If you have the original Dungeoneer! The second adventure is primarily in Port Blacksand and it's sewers. The first adventure is shorter and a prelude to the second one.

Also, the original Blacksand! Has an adventure in Blacksand.

The third book, Allansia! Is not set in Blacksand.

City of Thieves could be pretty easy to turn into an adventure.

Thanks Slloyd14!

I also found an adventure from the scénariotheque set in Port Blacksand:
https://www.scenariotheque.org/Fichiers ... rbaine.pdf

As 1 of my player is a man-orc looking for his brother who has fled the orc barrack from Firetop Moutain, he is going to look for his brother Mung in Port Blacksand where he has become a butcher selling rat pies! Unfortunately the rats are running out and this is affecting Mung’s business. The party is going to investigate why Port Blacksand’s rats are missing.

I was thinking that this could take place in 1 of the poor district like the Noose district. Mung could be selling his rat pies in the Market Square.

I would like to use Port Blacksand as a sandbox type of aventure where the party can go wherever they like and use the adventure hooks as adventures that they can choose to get involved in.

In the sewers you may meet a witch harvesting rats for her potions... :mrgreen:

Ah ah!

The story goes that raters (people catching rats?) are going missing and therefore less rats are available to make pies. This is due to a wererat whose plan is to inflict Blacksand with diseases carried by the rats.

Just discovered this market square “mayem” adventure by Ian Livingstone in the Warlock 3 magazine. It looks like it could add some fun to a Blacksand adventure:
