OSR Christmas - Day Two - WG5: Mordenkainen's Fantastic Adventure (1e)

Its Day Two of OSR Christmas. Before we get to today's festivities, let's find out who is the recipient of yesterday's awesome gift.

I would do a drum roll but that doesn't work so well on a blog post. Oh well.

+Wayne Humfleet - congrats. Email me at tenkarsDOTtavern and we'll get you hooked up.

Now for today's gift. WG5: Mordenkainen's Fantastic Adventure (1e), written by Gary Gygax and Rob Kuntz, its part of OBS recent TSR Era POD offerings.
Four great and powerful heroes travel in search of adventure. Led by Mordenkainen, wizard without peer, they have come to mysterious Maure Castle, a forlorn and foreboding place, source of wonderment and awesome adventure, following a strange and terrible story. 
For, somewhere deep beneath Maure Castle, from whence no person has returned alive, there stand two massive iron doors -- doors without latch, lock, or handle -- the Unopenable Doors. 
And if the doors are opened, what then? Such potent evil, such terror lies beyond, that even the bravest adventurers may quail before the ultimate test! 
Mordenkainen's Fantastic Adventureis a challenging adventure for high-level play. Four original characters from Gary Gygax's famous Greyhawk campaign are included for your use. 
Can you meet the challenge? Can you survive what lies beyond ... the Unopenable Doors? 
An adventure for characters level 9-12.

    Grrrrawr! This nonsense of "adventurers" thinking they can defeat me must come to an end! The middle must be mine, that I may destroy their chances!! After all, that useless Tomorast is a complete failure...

  29. It is said Mordenkainen's stocking is a portal to a hobby shop in the 90s by the role playing nook. Some of the nerds then would often find beloved treasures there whIle their moms bought knick-knacks.

  30. I'm in. Great adventure. I wonder if the PDF fixed the upside-down map?

    ReplyDelete
  31. I always read that as "mauve" castle, for some reason.

  38. I remember I owned this back in the day, but aside from the "Gary's Campaign PCs" stat blocks, I don't think I ever read it. Might just have to do that at some point...

  45. A most excellent module. High level Greyhawk for the win!

  46. I need to get my Players back to Greyhawk.

    They've always wanted to be buried, along those pleasant hills.
    This appears to be exactly how I can accomplish this.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Odlschool Greyhawk meets POD? yes!

    ReplyDelete
  48. One of the main reasons this module is a nice one to have is the fact it applies a very Vanceian approach to the wizard in questions mindset. Besides who can deny wanting to play an adventure that from the intro gave the great gamemaster himself difficulty.

  49. Raises hand (and stalks around nervously eyeing the other people commenting)

  50. Love me some Greyhawk! Never read this module. :)
