Author: Mike Carr
Format: 32 page book
Description: This package (a cover folder with maps and descriptive booklet within) forms a complete module for use with DUNGEONS & DRAGONS Basic Set. It is especially designed as an instructional aid for beginning Dungeon Masters and players, specifically created to enable new Dungeon Masters to initiate play with a minimum of preparation.
In addition to descriptive and situational material, this module also includes special informational sections giving: background history and legends, listings of possible monsters and treasures and how to place them, a list of adventuring characters, tips on various aspects of play for the Dungeon Master, and helpful advice for starting players.
Comments: This adventure was designed as a teaching tool for both players and dungeonmasters. Many rooms in the dungeon were intentionally left empty for the DM to fill in. There also was a lot of how to run an adventure advice as included. This adventure is a good first adventure (and a great tool for learning to be a dungeonmaster, but B2 was probably a better “first adventure” experience.
