D&D Modules Set In TSR's
Known World & Hollow World Settings

Last Updated: 28th February 2004

I have written a number of modules for use with TSR's D&D Fantasy Role Playing System. Many of the early adventures I created were written longhand and the manuscripts have vanished. Those that I have found I am in the process of typing up and these will appear on this web site. More recent ones have already been written in MS Word 7 format with maps produced using Pro Fantasy's Campaign Cartographer. Those adventures with hand drawn maps will eventually have the maps redrawn and posted here.

Most of the adventures are set in TSR's Known World or Mystara setting. Mystara is unusual in that it is a hollow sphere. Inside this sphere the Immortals have placed the remenants of ancient civilisations. The Hollow World is a place for strange adventures to take place and some of my adventures are set there.

These adventures are listed in order of total levels, linked adventures are listed together.

In the adventure text particular PCs are mentioned by name. This is the current make-up of the adventuring party:

Those adventures marked WEB EXCLUSIVE! have not been playtested and have been created as part of my Mystaran Map Archive which contains maps, NPCs and now adventures.

New Rulers Of A Troubled Land
The next series of adventures were used as 'quickies' for the PCs as they were clearing an area of NW Wendar.
They had been granted a series of small dominions as a reward for defeating the Shadow Lord (TSR Adventure X11 - Saga Of The Shadow Lord). There were a series of problems in each of the dominions and they quickly noticed that there was a common factor, a shadowy force known as the 'Chaos Alliance'.
I will be using this as an adventure hook for the next few adventures.
Wendar The Ruined Shrine 6 PCs of levels 8-11 In the Barony of Bordyn there is an old shrine sat at the foot of a steep, rocky cliff. The shrine has long been disused and all but forgotten. The people of the nearby village of Bordyn however tell tails of strange lights and sounds emanating from the shrine and keep away from it as much as they can. Adventure - Word Format (17Kb)

Victims slowed down till they nearly stopped, eventually they even stooped eating and breathing. None will go near them now in fear that whatever destroyed the people will spread to them. The source of the problem is a pair of Bargda who live in a small underground cave complex along with a handful of trolls. Adventure - Word Format (14Kb)
