A collection of five settlements for the 5th edition of the world's oldest roleplaying game!
Over The Next Hill is a booklet containing five small towns that can be dropped into a campaign with minimal preparation. Each settlement is 4-5 pages long, and presents several NPCs, points of interest, and loose plot hooks that can be developed during play.
- The Village of Drood. The Village of Drood is a small village bordering a dark wood, founded by a travelling wizard and ready to be plugged in to your campaign. The first in the series of settlements, this article contains NPCs and plot hooks. By Mark Craddock; illustrated by Jacob Blackmon.
- The Town of Rivereave. Rivereave is a lakeside fishing town on the fringes of civilization - an ideal base camp from which to launch expeditions into the wilderness! With NPCs, locations, and plot hooks, these settlements can be used in any campaign. By Scott Marcley; illustrated by Indi Martin.
- Village of Dreams. Halloween is here with Josh Gentry's Village of Dreams. Natulog is a sleepy hamlet, but the thick evening fogs deliver messages through the dreams of those who rest there. Part of the Over the Next Hill series, this plug-in settlement includes significant areas, notes on dream reading, and rumors and plot hooks suitable for all character levels. Illustrated/cartography by Michael Tumey.
- Springs of Hverfell. Hverfell is located in a hidden verdant valley in the midst of unforgiving tundra. Investigate the Spitz Bathhouse, the Elemental observatory, or the Aviary. Meet the conjurer Leogard Brix or Mistress Ashley Leon of the Ochre Springs Bathworks. As always, the article presents significant NPCs, locations, plus plot hooks and rumors.

- The Hamlet of Varseldorf. Pater Zacchaeus brings us the Hamlet of Varseldorf, another plug-in village for your 5E game. With the usual significant areas and plot hooks, this initially idyllic-seeming village of doppelgängers has a dark secret! Cartography by Michael McCarthy.
