Module I3, Pharaoh, was a minor revelation to me in 1982, when it was released. I don’t know that it was in fact the first module TSR published after it had changed AD&D’s logo and trade dress — I suspect it wasn’t — but it’s the one “new look” module whose appearance is forever seared in my memory. I’m generally very ambivalent about Jim Holloway’s art. He definitely has a flair of the “extraordinary ordinary,” but he also has a tendency to veer too wildly into Three Stooges territory, with illustrations lacking either in the whimsy of Tom Wham or the quirkiness of Will McLean. But the cover of Pharaoh is moody, evocative piece of work and it really won me over at the time. Of course, it helps that I’m a big fan of ancient Egypt, but that shouldn’t minimize the power of Holloway’s artwork or how it signaled to me that the times they were a-changin’ for D&D.
