[Adventure]Green Messiah (2021)Kelvin Green (Lamentations of the Flame Princess)Lvl ??? (C’mon man. Level requirement this stuff. 2-4?) During my sojourn to the 2022 January Wallowvanganza over at Falsemachine, where people were so distraught at having only a single lawn they went so far as to lower themselves to the status of moderate intelligence (what shame! … More [Review] Green Messiah (Lotfp); Lean, Mean, and Beta-Caroteen

[Review] WG5 Mordekainen’s Fantastic Adventure (AD&D); Left-Hand Path

[Adventure]WG5 Mordekainen’s Fantastic Adventure (1984)Robert J. Kuntz & Gary Gygax (TSR)Lvl 8 – 14 Twilight approaches.

[Review] Fez 1 – Valley of Trees (AD&D 1e 3PP); Alien

[Adventure]Fez 1 – Valley of Trees (1982)Len Bland & James Robert (Mayfair Games)Lvl 1 -7 A rewarding aspect of delving into old modules that are relatively obscure is that you discover something genuinely alien to modern sensibilities.

A kind-of sequel to the inspired but somewhat uneven S4, WG4 starts off coy, unassuming, with the Gnome King that you … More [Review] WG4 The Forgotten Temple of Tharizdun (AD&D); Delayed Gratification

[Review] S3 Expedition to the Barrier Peaks (AD&D); Beyond

[Adventure]S3 Expedition to the Barrier Peaks (1980)Gary Gygax (TSR)Lvl 8 – 12 The legendary S3. If the GD(Q) series can be seen as a roadmap for ‘normal’ high level adventures as T1 can be seen as a normal low-level adventure, the S series is where Gygax gets wacky and more experimental, and few things in … More [Review] S3 Expedition to the Barrier Peaks (AD&D); Beyond
