Favourite Old School D&D module/memory 5 Years, 5 Months ago  
Hi all,

This is my first post so I'm not sure if this has been asked before. For all you old time D&D gamers out there, I'd be interested to know what your favourite First Edition module (that you played) is and why. What encounter or event do you fondly remember that makes it a 'classic' in your mind?

I'd have to say mine is playing Eye of the Serpent (UK5) with my best bud in high school. That module was part of a huge campaign with my fav characters that I started from first level. Good times, good time.....

Thanks,

-Bob

Mine was a 2nd edition module but it was one of the best ones ever in my opinion and thats Dragon mountain!! Back in those days we used no minis and very few published adventures but that one was awesome.

Journey to the mountain or journey under the mountain. Not sure exactly teh name. It was a 1st ed or ad&d module. Not sure. It was available in 1981. It was the first time I started to play. We came up against 2 orcs in a cave (first encounter) which took us 5 minutes of arguing to determine what an orc was. I took one swing, missed, and then I died. That first encounter was the best. I was hooked for life.

DMing my friends through the A1-4 (slaver) series, especially A4 where they are captured and stripped of everything and must wander around in the caverns with nothing but loin clothes. They really began to appreciate the value of just about ANYTHING they found - a rock, a piece of shell, a sharpened stick!

It's tough to pick just one, but I guess I'll say Vault of the Drow. As a DM, it was this module that taught me that monsters could do more than just sit in their rooms and wait for the PCs to show up.

If you mean strictly as a player (I was usually the DM), I'll say Against the Cult of the Reptile God. The lizard man vampire at the end really caught us off guard.

I ran a group of buddies starting in late high school through the supermodules T1-4, A1-4, G1-4, and the H1-4, with the campaign ending in the giant fight with Orcus. I'm still playing with a one of those guys today. We finished the campaign at a long weekend down at my parents lakehouse, pretty much just eating sleeping and gaming for 3 days. Awesome.

Speaking of Gaming for 3 days.... My wife goes to Tahoo 2x a year for a scrapbooking session. 4 days 3 nights. Other than this con or that con which are always crowded and quick one off games I do not know of any venue where you can go to game for a long weekend. Someone should organize that. Say a level 1-10 weekend adn then a 11-20 and finally a 21-30. Assuming 3.5 OGL of course. Could be a big hit. I would organize one but I already have to much on my plate.

For all you old time D&D gamers out there, I'd be interested to know what your favourite First Edition module (that you played) is and why.
I think I have to say B2 Keep on the Borderlands because it was the first. Even though I owned it we used to takes turns being the DM. As it was the only module int he group what we would get to DM when it was our turn depended on which of the caves the players went into.

It was a tough choice though and other favourites that came close are all modules that in the early days were somewhat different and therefore memorable:

L2 The Assassins Knot - A murder mystery in a town.

I6 Ravenloft (the original module not the campaign setting) - I think it was the amazing maps of an amazing castle, but it was a very clever adventure too.

S2 Expedition to the Barrier Peaks - How do characters from a medieval fantasy world interpret and old spaceship full of crazy robots?

I agree ...

"The Keep on the Borderlands" because it was "My First Time" and it opened up the world of RPGs to me !! Ah, the "good old days" when Elves and Dwarves were a character class !!!

Also, "Expedition to the Barrier Peaks" and "The Ghost Tower of Inverness" and "Vault of the Drow".

Oh, and a lot of Judge's Guild adventures like "The Caverns of Thracia" were almost endlessly sprawling and provided hours fun ... sometimes straight through a weekend or school vacation !!!

Great times ... especially when we had more time !!!!
