An introductory 4th Edition D&D adventure for characters of levels 1-3 including 4th Edition Quick-Start Rules.
The town of Winterhaven stands watch over a ruined keep that was once a bastion of good in the realm. This keep overlooks the Shadow Rift, a dark scar in the world that was once a gateway to the Shadowfell but has been dormant for many years. Now, an evil cleric of Orcus, Demon Lord of the Undead, seeks to re-open the gate, and the only thing standing in his way is a small yet determined band of heroes.
Keep on the Shadowfell is an exciting Dungeons & Dragons adventure designed for characters of levels 1–3. It includes three double-sided poster maps suitable for use with D&D Miniatures.

Review: Although pricey, this module is very well done. The included 4th Edition Quickstart Guide covers the basics on 4th Edition and includes some pre-generated characters for running the module. Even as a crusty First Edition DM, I was very impressed and am looking forward to digging into the new core rules. The adventure itself is well thought out. It leaves room for DM creativity and I actually like the new format. About the only downside is the drift towards miniatures. You really need to use them, or some sort of tokens, to get maximum advantage out of the 4th Edition rules. This module is essentially the Keep on the Borderlands for 4th Edition. I hope they can keep all the new 4th Edition modules at this level of quality.
