WotC Releases A0-A4: Against the Slave Lords (1e) in PDF

Remember when WotC was reprinting the AD&D 1e core books to generate some income between the the downfall of 4e and the rise of 5e? A0-A4: Against the Slave Lords (1e) was released around the same time.

The addition of A0: Danger at Darkshelf Quarry allows one to treat the A series as a mini campaign and was a nice addition. A1 was the first module I ever owned and it holds a special part in my gamer's heart.

I'm happy to finally have a PDF version of this, as now I can use the maps in Roll20 or another VTT, and that makes my DMing job pretty damn easy ;)

It's 10 bucks for 4 classic modules and a bonus module, which is a pretty good deal. Now, why they couldn't have found an unwrapped copy for the pic used at RPGNow - no idea ;)


  1. The scans have always been a mystery to me.

    I love the A Series it was the first railroad that our group went off the rails with ;)

    1. A friend of mine ran them in Pathfinder a couple years ago, way too much railroad, not enough adventure.

  2. I'd like to see a cheaper PDF (3 or 4 bucks maybe) with just the A0 material. I already have the A1-4 stuff.

    1. Perhaps B1-Castle Zenopus is more your financial speed. It's free and over on vaults of pandius.

  3. There's also an A0.5 in Dungeon #221 and an A5 in Dungeon #215.

  4. I was so close to buying hard copies of these modules from the local used bookstore this last weekend. I think the total for all of them would've amounted to about $30, and they weren't even in very good condition. I would've been reaaaaally torqued to see this news a few days later.
