OSR Christmas - OSR Christmas - Day Five - A0-A4 Against the Slave Lords (PDF Only - AD&D 1e)


Its Day Five 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.

Dak Ultimak - congrats. Email me at tenkarsDOTtavern and we'll get you hooked up.

Now for today's gift. We are giving away the A0-A5 Against the Slave Lords (PDF Only)
Against the Slave Lords is a collection of four classic Advanced Dungeons & Dragons adventure modules that form a series -- A1: Slave Pits of the Undercity, A2: Secret of the Slavers Stockade, A3: Assault on the Aerie of the Slave Lords, and A4: In the Dungeons of the Slave Lords -- complete with original black-and-white interior art. 
Added to the collection is an all-new fifth adventure -- A0: Danger at Darkshelf Quarry -- that you can use to kick off an AD&D campaign that pits a group of adventurers against the evil Slave Lords! Module A0, designed for levels 1-3, sets the stage for events that unfold throughout the remainder of the "A" series. 
A1: Slave Pits of the Undercity: It is time to put a stop to the marauders! For years the coastal towns have been burned and looted by the forces of evil. You and your fellow adventurers have been recruited to root out and destroy the source of these raids—as hundreds of good men and women have been taken by the slavers and have never been seen or heard from again!
A2: Secret of the Slavers Stockade: The battle against the slavers continues! You and your fellow adventurers have defeated the slavers of Highport, but you have learned of the existence of another slaver stronghold, and you have decided to continue the attack. But beware! Only the most fearless of adventurers could challenge the slavers on their own ground, and live to tell of it!
A3: Assault on the Aerie of the Slave Lords: Into the Drachengrab Mountains! Hot on the trail of the marauding slavers, you and your fellow adventurers plunge deep into hostile Hills. Spurred on by your past success, you now seek the heart of the slaver conspiracy. But hurry! You must move quickly before the slavers recover from your previous forays and attack! 
A4: In the Dungeons of the Slave Lords: Trapped in the dungeons of the Slave Lords! The hardy adventurers must find a way out, with only their wits and courage to help them. But can they do it before everything is destroyed by the dreaded Earth Dragon?"

  15. Gimme gimme gimme (adventure after midnight)!

    One of my favorite moments playing ever was that the boggarts stole my necromancer's spell component pouch while playing one of these adventures (I dunno which one). The DM, my friend Chris, was running this under 3.0e, which was still fairly new (this was 2001 or 2002), and didn't realize that "spell component pouch" was singular. So my necromancer was fucked for most spellcasting. After trying various ways of getting his pouch back and losing more items in the process, Basayant (my necromancer) stood in front of the tunnel with the boggarts wearing only his underrobes and holding only his quarterstaff, and went on a rant telling the boggarts that he would come back and kill them all and raise them as skeletons (he didn't like zombies because they smelled bad).

    They threw a couple of components (and rotten garbage) at him, had the whole gaming store rolling in laughter, and I got roleplaying XP.
