I really love this one, even though my character was killed by the Chasmes, as I recall.
Cory - thanks for the link! I checked it out, some really good suggestions in the list, including all of the modules listed in these Updates so far.
It would be great to see a more recent list, too. There are so many role playing game systems now, and thousands of adventure modules to choose from nowadays.
Very hard to know which ones are the best to look at spending the money on. Seems like most are rated about the same on DriveThruRPG and RPGNow.
There was a ranking of the 30 greatest adventures in Dungeon magazine 116...I believe. It is referenced in this blog: http://grognardia.blogspot.com/2008/09/30-greatest-d-adventures-of-all-time.html…
You are dead-on about the quality of the art. Jim Holloway was such a workhorse for TSR, supporting Gangbusters, Star Frontiers, doing all of MMII, and many modules besides. I love how his back cover illo perfectly matched the adventure text.
Lloyd - sounds like you looked for it, thanks! If you do find it, please post it, I for one would love to read it.
Like you, I didn't have the funds in the early 80's to buy modules. I was lucky I had the DMG, PH, MM, a birthday subscription to Dragon magazine, some dice and a handful of pewter miniatures.
Thank goodness things are different now! ;)
yw - I really do love that module. Although I think officially it falls somewhere in the late teens / early twenties of all-time greatest modules.
there actually was a list somewhere - danged if I can find the link again
Creator - I was going to ask for a list of some of the best fantasy modules ever made, but you beat me to it. Please keep them coming!
Thanks Lloyd, great suggestion and background on this module!
