The Isle of Mordol*

Tractor Feed Adventures

1982

An adventure for Basic and Expert Dungeons & Dragons

And Dungeon Masters who like screaming in the night.

What is this crap?

While we played a hodge-podge of OD&D, AD&D, and Moldvay D&D in our first games, this was written using the 1981 Moldvay Basic set and the 1981 Cook Expert set as references. Thus, monsters save as character class levels (or Normal Man) and the alignments are Lawful, Neutral, and Chaotic. In the descriptions of player character alignments, though, I seem to be assuming both Law/Chaos and Evil/Good axes. This probably came from starting with Blue Book D&D and rolling characters with the PH.

Some of the monsters are obviously custom monsters. Hopefully their name describes what’s special about them. I have no entry anywhere describing what a “Jonah Whale” actually is, for example. Presumably it’s a whale that you can live inside after you’ve been eaten.

I have no memory of how I rolled wandering monsters.

I’ve tried to discern the original whenever possible; in college I went through and bowdlerized it by reducing the treasure haul, as well as the bonuses on magical treasure. Fortunately, I only got about a third of the way in before I gave up. It’s an unbowdlerizable text.

Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, you don’t have to unroll a five-foot by five-foot map (seven sheets wide by five sheets tall) to get an overview of the island. In the original, I don’t think I ever saw the island as a whole. Each section was a strip of five sheets of 8.5x11 paper taped together vertically. If the player characters went horizontally instead of vertically, I unrolled another sheet.

The maps were drawn with color pencil. This makes it virtually impossible to use Inkscape’s tracing function to get a simple vector-based map. Maybe someday I’ll go through by hand and trace over the maps to get smaller, higher quality ones. Don’t hold your breath.

Each square is fifty feet on a side. That makes each sheet about half a mile by two-thirds of a mile, and the entire map about 3.5 miles by 3.2 miles. Tiny island. Big map.

I have added punctuation, articles, and conjunctions. I wrote the key to these maps in a word processor of my own design on a TRS-80 Model I. With only 64 characters to a line, it looked really ugly if a line had more than about 60 characters (each line was also prepended by a line number). So abbreviations were the name of the game, not that D&D didn’t itself encourage arcane abbreviations. There were also some interesting “features” of that word processor not worth reproducing. Other than that and deciphering a palimpsest of erased treasure, this is the original text. I may, later, attempt to update it for Gods & Monsters, but I doubt it.

I’ve subtitled the ancient folder I keep this in as for “Character Levels 2-5”.

Maybe. If the players are very skilled and very lucky and suck up to the DM.

Remember, as you laugh, that a real person ran this, even if I can’t remember much about him thirty years later. The characters returned to Specularum with newfound wealth and power; by this time they were all evil. One became evil during the adventure due to injudicious use of one of the magic items. One had already been evil; he’d been acting awfully good while adventuring with the other good characters, so the alignment gods sent him a test to see if he would be punished for being too good; he passed the test. So, in Specularum, they were contacted by the minions of Hell and forced* to recover the Gem of Kerouac. After that, memory fades.

Table of Contents

Something else I didn’t have access to in 1982. Such decadence!

Key

Emphasized monster names mean something. They were asterisks in the original. Asterisks applied to vampires, werewolves, and rust monsters. And vampire sharks! I’m guessing it means that special weapons are required to hit the creature, and that I was very haphazard about adding the asterisk.

The maps inside are marked as the lower case of the island section. That was my notation for “this map is on the other side of the piece of paper used for that section of the island”.

At night, each person’s armor and weapons are kept next to them. 10 bows and 400 arrows are at the north wall.

The cupboards hold wooden utensils, food (plant and meat).

The crosses in circles are torches.

The room to the northwest holds 3,000 copper pieces, 100 gold pieces, and 10 platinum pieces in a chest that weighs 4,000 coins total. There are no windows.

4. King’s room. 4 guards on the outside (see guards in room 1). The king: AC5, HD3+1, hp 18, At 1 sword+1, D3-10+paralysis to lawfuls, save F3, C. His sword is a sword+1, defeat law. There is a bag of holding among some rags, which will not be noticed unless someone examines the cloth carefully.

5. Treasure room. 1,543 copper pieces and 1,336 silver pieces.

If they are carrying much treasure and making a lot of noise, there is a 45% chance that a band of bandits will attack.

The city is Cankor*, where the party will first land. No one is allowed in the section for the army or the castle. The nearer that things are to the castle, the higher their prices, and the better their quality. The roads are stone-paved, and the rest is plains.

The people make their living fishing. Farm products (except seaweed) are very rare. The hills are 20-50 feet high. The bridges are the boundaries for fishing. The people are very superstitious, and will not travel across the river, except for funerals. Bandits sneak in at night.

The webs are about 30 feet up, and can be walked on, since they are webbed over, and roofed with leaves, bark, twigs, etc. The webbed sections resemble caves. They can be seen only if climbing the tree. If in the area of location 3, there is a 1 in 10 chance of climbing the right one*.

At the foot of many of the trees are lizard-men skulls. If climbing one of these, there is a 1 in 8 chance of hitting the right tree.

Each aranea has a 65% chance of being in its lair. The treasure chest in each web has a poison trap.

Description

In the middle of the clearing in the trees in the southeast is a rock altar. A random sacrificial animal of somebody’s god will appear. If that person offers the animal as a sacrifice, he will be interviewed by his god to see if he is worthy. If so, he will be granted anything, but what he asks for is also part of the test. If he fails (doesn’t act right, asks for something big) he will be cursed. No one else will notice this questioning, as it takes place on the spiritual planes at slowed time.

In the southeast is an Orc tower, abandoned. Anyone going by (on the path or river) will hear her yell for help, and if they can see the East window, will see her—as when she was alive. There are 8 skeletons on the bottom floor: AC7, HD1, At1, D1-6, save F1, C. The 2nd, 4th, and 6th floors are empty, along with the dungeon. There are 4 skeletons in the 3rd floor, and 5 on the 5th. In the top dungeon is the “girl”—who is now a skeleton with hair. She will act as though she didn’t know she is dead, and will act lawful, following the party out if they let her loose. Upon leaving the tower, she will become dust, and then the dust will form into a red amulet, surrounded by silver, with a gold chain. This will glow whenever the wearer is about to be endangered. It will also, upon being thrown into the rivers surrounding Grabdok’s lair, reform into Ara—the skeleton, but this time fully alive, and wanting to return to Erression*. The amulet will glow with heat when next to the river.

Orc tower in the southwest: see aa E for map. If many orc parties in the area are disappearing, or turn up dead, this will be beefed up. It is an outpost for the mercenary orcs.

image 37

In the forest between this tower and the swamp, a good person will (roll a secret 5 in 6) see a glint off to the east. About 10 feet off to the side is a sword-in-stone (+3, lawful, int 15, ego 12). This sword will not get a +3 against monsters within Grabdok’s rivers, but if the ‘to hit’ +3 is made, there is an automatic double damage. This sword does not do damage against other “goods”. It can be pulled out by a lawful good* on a 3 in 6, chaotic 2 in 6, and neutral 1 in 6. This can be tried only once every five levels.

Area A (sand)

7 staff earth elementals: AC6, HD8, hp 33, 37, 43, 36, 44, 21, At 1, D2-16, save F8, N. These elementals will attack any strong party attempting to move across the sand, and will follow them up to 10 feet from the sand (MV 20 feet/round) or scare off any party not worth attacking.

Area B (river)

7 staff water elementals: AC2, HD8, D1-8+, save F8, N. If in the water, they do an additional 1-8 points damage. The elementals will attempt to do the same as the earth elementals, but not leaving the water. Their “territory” stretches from the bridge by area B to the far west part of the river, 1-200 feet from the falls.

Area C (forest)

• 15 treants: AC2, HD8, AT2, D2-12/2-2, save F8, L.

Treants may also animate trees (2 per treant at a time) to fight as treants. The treants will not attack unless the party attempts to chop trees in area C. (There is a 1 in 20 chance that this tree will be a treant.) There is a 50% chance that the treants will attack, or that they will simply have the tree run away. If the party attempts to start a forest fire, all treants will animate two trees to fight.

Points D1 and D2 on the paths are connected by an invisible 2-way portal to each other. It will seem as though the path just acts normal, but there is a 2 in 6 chance that, if it is morning or night, each person will notice that the sun is on the other side.

Area D (swamp)

4 sea serpents will attack any non-orcs attempting to pass through the swamp.

• d4 sea serpents (lesser): AC5, HD6, hp 25, 26, 24, 34, At 1 bite, D2-12, save F3, N.

Area E (bay)

15 giant piranhas will attack anyone entering the bay.

• 3d4+3 giant piranhas: AC6, HD3+3, hp 9, 12, 20, 18, At 1 bite, D1-8, save F2, N.

Point F (buried skull)

Right at this point is a skull, half-buried in the ground. If they party digs him out, they will find a small sack with 3 gold pieces, 4 silver pieces, and a map of the island.

Area G (whirlpool)

At the fork, there must be a total strength of 90 rowing to keep from being pulled in. Anyone going down the whirlpool will take 2-8 points of damage. The boat will take 3-10. They will find themselves in the dwarven stronghold Stragenheim. See map db C.

1. Table, with 4 people—mom, dad, son, daughter—sitting, eating, and talking noiselessly. The table, food, and silverware will appear real until taken 2 feet from the table. The people will not be able to be moved. If the table is broken (it is already rotted, but the illusion hides it) they will become skeletons, and the illusion will disappear: AC7, HD1, hp 3, 7, 7, 6, At1, D1-6, save F1, C.

2. Ladder to the bedroom: just some sheets and hay.

3. Pantry: a tarantella is in here: AC5, HD4, hp 24, At 1 bite, D1-8+poison, save F2, N. Victims must save vs. poison or start a frantic dance for 2d6 turns; they have a -4 on ‘to hit’, attackers get a +4, and onlookers save vs. spells or dance as long as the poisoned victim. There are some foodstuffs here, rotted and moldy, and webs.

4. Kitchen area: gas stove, no gas, but would still work if it had gas.*

Description

image 43fb A) Bandit’s lair

1. Trap room. All except 3 feet from wall is wood, covered with dirt, which will break on 1,610 coins. It is 10 feet deep, and persons will take 2d4 points of damage. There is a 1 in 6 chance that a Dwarf will off-hand notice the difference in dirt color. Noise will bring guards from room 3 in one round.

2. Natural gas chamber. Natural gas comes in near entrance, goes out near back. It is odorless and colorless, and will not light*. Anyone in here for 2d6+1 rounds will fall asleep, dying in d4 turns.

The secret doors are crude, so there is a 2 in 6 chance to see them.

image 44fb B) Unknown gods

Nothing here except toppled pillars, fallen walls, and smashed statues of unknown gods. In the center, however, is an old stairwell, leading down about 20 feet east. The walls are marble, with weird inlaid designs. The doors all have been smashed.

1. Next to the walls in this room are 21 statues, defaced, but still standing, and similar to the ones outside. Behind the middle statue on the east is a scroll of protection from lycanthropes, which the gnolls know about. There are 8 gnolls: AC5, HD2, hp 5, 10, 7, 10, 11, 6, 8, 14, At sword, D2-9, save F2, C.

2. The door to this room is secret, and kept by the gnolls since this is their treasure room. 2,559 gold pieces, 2,336 copper pieces, 50 silver pieces. There’s also a marble altar.

3. d6-1 gnolls (same as room 1, without swords, D2-8). On the west wall is a large picture, showing an aerial fight twixt the gods of which the statues are made, and some evil-looking characters. Under the fight is a temple.

4. 5 gnolls (as room 3). Nothing here but bones, rotted food, and rags.

5. No gnolls. There is a statue of an awful evil-looking person. Anyone looking at it will have an 11% chance of being cursed each time. Anyone trying to take out his ruby eyes will take 4d6 points from lightning (1/2 if save vs. spells). This will also happen if they attempt to mar it. It can do it as many times as it “wants”.

6. 4 gnolls, as in room 3. There is an altar in here, but it has rotted food, bones, etc., on it. Inside it is a ring of spell storing. It will appear out for a chaotic evil wizard. It currently has the spells flesh to stone, animate dead (twice), curse, and wall of fire, at the level of the user.

7. 5 gnolls, 50% for each to have a sword, but as room 3. There are also pictures of the fight again, in mural form.

8. The leader and 3 gnoll guards are in here. The leader always carries a potion of delusion which he thinks is of invisibility. If the party looks too strong, he will try it and attempt to sneak out. Leader: AC2 (shield+2), HD3, hp 16, At scimitar, D2-9, save F2, C. Guards: AC5, HD2, hp 14, 14, 15, At sword, D2-9, save F2, C. In the southwest corner is a rope of climbing. On the south wall is a spiral, 5-foot diameter. If 6 points or more is done to it at one time, in the center (AC8), it will break the entire wall, freeing the demons stuck below. If a person is wearing the ring from room 6, he will be forced to open it, with a +3 ‘to hit’.

About 25 feet above ground. The walls are about 8 feet thick. The entrance is 7 feet below ground, on the north side, in the middle of the wall.*

image 46

The ruins here consist of fallen buildings, toppled statues, and pillars. In the center, however, one of the buildings is still up, albeit weatherbeaten. It is only about 6 feet by 8 feet by 8 feet. Inside is the entrance to a stairwell. The building will not let any evil people in. Lawful good characters will have a 6 in 6 chance of getting in. Neutral goods will have a 3 in 6 chance, and chaotic goods a 1 in 6 chance of being let in. Lawful neutrals will also have 1 in 6, and Neutral Neutrals have 2 in 6. A force field will top those who cannot enter. No non-intelligents will be let in.

1. In this room there are 21 statues (9x9x3). There is a 40% chance that the middle of the 3 in the east will talk once, warning that “the balance of the temples must be kept”. This chance will increase if the demons are loose. The others can then each be asked one question. They are the guardians of the temple, and will answer in riddles. The room is lit by a magical blue light. The roof looks like it shows deep into space. The doors are solid oak, and will open automatically.

2. The door is secret. Inside, magic lights flicker from a candle which never goes out, and doesn’t exist in this plane. In front of the candle, on the marble altar, is a crystal ball of dimension viewing.

3. A giant picture is on the west wall of this room, depicting a fight between some of the gods whose statues are in room 1, and some demonic-type characters.

4. In here is a cleric’s ghost. If there is a lawful good cleric in the party, it will beckon him to come forward, then push all the others out with a force field, closing the door. The ghost will then ask the cleric some test questions to see if he is deserving (Who is your god? Have you ever killed anybody? Why? How much money do you have? What do you intend to do with it? etc.) The ghost will also be able to take into consideration any actions that occurred while in this temple, and has a 55% chance of detecting lies. If the cleric ‘passes’ the test, the ghost will ask him to take off his armor (he must trust him to do this—this is the last test). He will then take off his robe and give this to the cleric, along with this staff. The robe is a robe of teleportation (once every hour, AC3, 5 pockets each holding 350 coins in a 1 foot by 1 foot by 1 foot space), and the staff is a staff of healing. The cleric will find himself out in the hallway, and the room will no longer exist. Otherwise, the force field will push the cleric out into the hallway (opening the door*), then close the door for good for them. Anyone pushed out with the force field must roll under their dexterity or be unconscious for d6 turns.

5. In the middle of this room is a statue, with blue gems for eyes. The eyes emanate a cool blue light, which lights the entire room. Anyone completely entering will regain all hit points, and the effects of newly acquired experience points. Anyone trying to take out the eyes will be teleported to the entrance, taking as damage half the hit points that they have left, and will not be allowed in again.

6. There is an altar in the middle of this room. Ordinary light is coming from nowhere. If a lawful good wizard comes to it, a ring of spell storing will appear for him from inside the altar. It has the spells stone to flesh, remove curse, wall of ice, contact higher plane, and detect evil, at the level of the user.

7. More pictures of the fight, in mural form.

8. On the south wall is a spiral, from which golden light is emanating. If it is hit for 76 or more points at once, it will disintegrate the entire wall, letting loose the gods. If the demons have been let loose, and the ring from room 6 is on someone, it will tell in empathy about the fight, and how to let the gods loose.

The second dragon has the spells charm person, sleep, detect magic, web, phantasmal force, detect invisible, dispel magic, and hold person (2). It also has a scroll of wizard eye.

While in the maze, the party will periodically hear a low moaning, a shrill whine, a faint thumping, or a faint shuffling coming from the walls.

Every 600 feet, one person may be polymorphed if he doesn’t save vs. spells. They will be completely, except for thinking, changed. All equipment that will not fit their new form will disappear, to return 2-12 turns later when the person returns to normal. Creatures:

Small lake

The small lake in the northwest has a maximum depth of 160 feet. Near the path at the edge of the water, but under leaves, is a skeleton wearing a ring of water breathing. There’s a 1 in 6 chance of finding it if looking.

At the ‘X’, 60 feet under water, is a small galley, guarded by 15 skeletons: AC7, HD1, hp 5, 2, 4, 4, 3, 5, 8, 1, 4, 2, 4, 4, 3, 6, 4, At 1, D1-6, save F1, C. In the ship, everything is rotted and under mud except for the forward hull.

Under the mud is another chest, red, with gold inlaid (1,000 gold pieces, 2,000 coins), with a lot of padding inside and a 6-potion holder. One is broken and empty. The others are: a potion of polymorph self, a potion of fire resistance, a potion of clairvoyance, a potion of growth, and a potion of invisibility.

Under that is nothing but wood and bones. Upon leaving, if they took anything, 15 skeletons will be in front, 15 behind, and 15 on each side, for a total of 60. Only two skeletons will fight against each person, each being replaced as it dies—the dead skeletons become water.

There are also herd animals that the dragons feed on: deer and antelope.

Background

Location

Mordol is a tiny island on its own, about 2,000 miles west and 200 miles south of Specularum—very close to the equator.

History of Mordol

Mordol’s Gods lived here, and were worshipped by the builders of the pyramid flanked by temples. Some remnants of their power can still be seen: the ‘haven’ for animals in the cave system was fashioned by the Goddess of animals. The illusion of a ball in that same system was made by the Sun God.

Sleestak came to the underground from their dimension.

The worshippers of Mordol’s Gods build a mission on the northeast peninsula for the natives there.

The demons come, and are worshipped by a few people of map CD, the oak temple.

The big fight. As a result of this fight, the mission was destroyed, and the two forces (Gods and Demon) were mutually imprisoned under the temples. All but the highest level of people in the area survived, and these retreated to stay in the pyramid.

A college for Magic-users is started on a southeast islet. Eventually they note that there is some great power somewhere on the island, although it cannot be told what this is.

Two factions break out, both searching. Erression—leader of one and Grabdok—leader of others, build their fortresses.

Both bring in help from anywhere possible. Erression brings in Elves, and Dwarves, and humans (Clerics, Fighters). Grabdok brings Orcs, finds some Kopru from the Isle of Dread, human clerics and fighters.

Both sides make lots of magic objects to help them. There is finally a big battle, but neither side wins a decisive victory. Both settle back in, Erression trying to keep Grabdok from finding whatever it is.

Period of Tranquility

Some Sleestak come up (now eggs in hot fog*)

Clerics from pyramid—some leave (Mages Castle)

People move from Grabdok’s thrall to by lake, soon Grabdok has some worshippers on lake.

Orcs move out and set up mercenary operations.

Elves, Dwarves move out.

The feudal rulers

King Arinion includes Mordol in his kingdom—gives it in fealty to Sam Barkon, who went to build a castle. However, Grabdok sent army of fighters, clerics, magic-users to empty it. However, he didn’t have enough power to occupy it once he defeated it, so he then left it.

The castle was built above a set of caverns from clerics from the pyramids, who, though a lot of R&D set it up nicely.

Samson Barkon (Sam’s Son) tries to take over where dad left off. He built by the ocean. However, before the town was completely finished, vampires took over.*

King Fallon takes over the area of Mordol from the line of Arinion. He gives it to Justinian, who built up the town of Cankor, with magical protection.

Reign of Darsinian, Justinian’s heir.

Reign of Jalset, Darsinion’s heir.

Darien (present king) is born.

Darien turns out to be a black sheep (Lawful Evil), but is the only son.

Darien leaves, in a huff, with some friends.

Town stuff

Base prices

These are used for the inns and taverns.

ale: 2 cp
small beer: 1 sp
wine: 2 sp
kelp tea: 5 cp
bread: 1 sp/slice
fish stew: 1 sp
fried fish: 1 gp/platter
fish/vegetable pie: 4 ep
water: 3 ep
fish filet: 1 gp/plate
roast meat: 7 gp
cheese: 8 gp/slice

From this we can deduce that fish is pretty damn cheap on this island. Bread, meat, and cheese are extremely expensive. And that ale for some reason is much cheaper than beer, and kelp tea is in the middle. Fresh water is pretty damn expensive, too.

Inns/taverns

Each inn has either two or three sets of prices. I’m assuming that the first price is for their best room, and the last price is for their common room, as this is pretty standard for D&D inns. If there’s a middle price, they probably have two classes of rooms.

Each price also has a percentage after. For the life of me, I can’t figure out what that percentage means. Judging from the notes for Cankor’s Corker, it’s the chance of something happening. Maybe it’s the chance of a wandering monster? Or the chance that someone tries to steal their stuff? The latter doesn’t fit my idea that the lowest price is for a common room; I’d expect the chance of theft much greater in the common room, and the numbers don’t differ by much.

1. The Green Guardian. Tavern prices are at 2 times base. Inn prices are at 25 gp/month or 2 gp/night (4%); or 15 gp/month or 1 gp/night (7%). They have some sea serpent (delicacy!) at 150 gp for portions or 850 gp each.

2. Genesis. This is the best, and most prestigious, of the inns. Their tavern prices are at 2.5 times base. Inn prices are 30 gp/month or 3 gp/night (2%); or 18 gp/month or 1.5 gp/night (4%).

3. Borderline Tavern. Tavern prices are at 1.8 times base. Inn prices are 25 gp/month or 2 gp/night (5%); or 13 gp/month or 1.5 gp/night (7%).

4. The Pobtob. Tavern prices are at base. Inn prices are 20 gp/month or 1 gp/night (4%); or 10 gp/month or 5 sp/night (5%).

5. Trepis Inn. No tavern. Inn prices are at 20 gp/month or 1 gp/night (7%); 10 gp/month or 7 sp/night (9%); or 5 gp/month or 2 sp/night (12%).

6. Cankor’s Corker. Tavern prices are at half of base. For prices, chances see Trepis Inn.

7. Tavern prices are 1/4 base and well worth it.* Names are clockwise from the top, except (c).

a) Red Coach, Flying Areal, Cabals, and Seetort Blue

b) Grackle Bar, Green Dragon, Blue Lizard, Slight Tira, and Iris.

c) From lowest, clockwise: Nothing! Apparently I never got around to naming these, even though I did get around to deciding what order I’d name them in.

8. Prices are 2/3 base.

a) Spider Eye Tavern

b) Red Arrow

c) Brown Town Round

9. Prices are 1/2 base.

a) Black Dog

b) Purple Rabbit

c) Rock Jaw

d) Le Côte Rocheuxd) Le Côte Rocheux†

The pyramid

Anyone inside the pyramid does not age, need food, or need drink.

At the bottom is a pool; people looking into it can see the future, past, and/or present. There is no controlling it. There is a 45% chance it will show someone an important event, not more than once a week, and -5% each successive week they try; +5% each week they don’t look, not going higher than 45%.

New things

That is, things that I can’t find in the Basic set or Expert set rulebooks. I assume I made them up. This was the hardest part about going through this adventure. Why did I keep the adventure, but throw away all of my “generic”* notes? I mean, let’s face it, this adventure sucks. But some of the things I’m finding references to are potentially cool.

Magic

Amulet of protection from turning

This amulet provides some protection against being turned by clerics. I can’t remember if it as an absolute protection or a penalty on the cleric’s roll, but since it doesn’t provide a plus number, I’m guessing it was absolute.

Astral Armor

As I recall, this armor let you go astrally, leaving your body behind, for some distance. Every time a character goes out of body, however, there was a chance of some evil spirit taking their body over. While they could still return, the evil spirit would from then on influence them to be evil.

The player who found the armor used it whenever possible, and did in fact eventually turn evil. The other PCs decided to go along with it—one was either already evil or switched his alignment after a dream test from the alignment gods; I ended up creating a couple of adventures for evil characters, but the game broke up when we went to different colleges.

Bag of meals

Mmmm… donuts.

No, I have no idea. It sounds to me like a stock item, but I can’t find it. So I’m going with, it gives you a different gourmet meal every day. One day it might be frogs’ legs in hollandaise sauce, another day oysters on the half shell, perhaps some raw fish the next.

No wonder that ogre in map CA is ambushing adventurers.

Chaotic sword

There’s a lizard-man hermit with a Chaotic Sword +- 3. As I recall, this weapon required a secret roll by the Dungeon Master before every combat to determine if the sword was acting as a +3 sword or a -3 sword. The bonus or penalty applied to both ‘to hit’ rolls and damage rolls as normal. It did a minimum of 1 point of damage.

Crystal ball of time vision, Crystal ball with clairaudience

Is this one of mine? I vaguely recall enjoying having different kinds of crystal balls that could do the different things you were supposed to be able to do with crystal balls. So some could see the future, some could see the present, some could see and hear the present, and so-on.

Madrigal, the living lantern

Basically, a talking lantern with special knowledge. Possibly ESP and monster detection. If I remember right, it was evil and manipulative.

Pandora’s box

A box of curses. Assuming I wasn’t being completely evil, opening it (or perhaps looking inside it) will let out one curse. If I was completely evil, opening it lets out all curses, like the original.

Powder of light/powder of darkness

These were powders you could throw into the air, and it would light the area up (or darken if it was powder of darkness). Pretty much a light spell or a darkness spell.

Ring of questions

The first question is, what does a ring of questions do?

Ring of true invisibility

This ring, if I recall, let people attack while invisible. It gave a bonus to AC and ‘to hit’ while in use, besides the normal surprise bonus to invisibility. Probably around 4.

Shadow weapon

As far as I can tell, there is no shadow weapon anywhere in this adventure. But the college still has textbooks on how to make them. My notes are somewhat incomplete: “+2, 1 point constitution. Exists in slight space warp. Must save vs. spells or feel compelled to use it (as cursed weapon). A normal person will lose one point (strength, wisdom, or constitution) every round it is used. If any hits zero, war will be”

Fortunately, I have never gamed with a normal person.

Sword of invisibility

Jogs something in my memory. I think this sword let the wielder choose to make themselves invisible, or make the blade invisible. The hilt is never invisible. If the wielder is invisible, they get a bonus to defense; if the blade is invisible, they get a bonus to attack.

Zombie battleaxe

A zombie battleaxe is a battleaxe that, when used by a zombie, can be thrown and will return to the zombie. I think it also gave the zombie bonuses to hit. What the guard on map DC in Rikladna is doing with one I have no idea. It’s only useful for zombies. That’s why, even though he has a magic weapon, it isn’t marked as having any bonuses to hit or damage: he’s not a zombie.

Creatures

Atavi

This creature appears on the notes for the college, but I don’t think they appear anywhere in the adventure—certainly not under that name, now that I have search. Oddly, these are also in pencil, whereas everything else on this sheet is in pen.

AC -1, HD 3+2, At sword+1, D 2-9, save F5, NG.

The Atavi has two forms: an out of phase form and a solid form. When out of phase, they cannot be hit, nor can they hit anyone. Nothing can affect them while they are out of phase. The stats here are for when they are solid.

Their swords are not magical, but gains their bonus by their special nature, and can only be used by Atavi.

They have the spells cure light wounds and cure serious wounds. They cannot be solid and cast spells at the same time.

Hell Jellies

I have no idea, but damn, it sounds cool. Demonic animated napalm?

Hydramen

When you kill a hydraman, two more hydramen take its place. However, those two attack and save as one hit die less, and have half the hit points of the original (round down). A hydraman that only has one hit point will not spawn more hydramen.

This is kind of cool. In the example in room 14 of map GC, the two hydramen will each become 32 single hit-point hydramen before they are killed permanently. That last generation pretty much pops like a balloon, but there are 32 of them all attacking as an HD 5 creature.

How about “angular soldiers from a crystalline reality” who “shatter, like holographs, into more fragile duplicates of themselves until the final generation fades out completely”?

Jonah Whales

I’m guessing they eat you, but you stay alive. They also barf you up in map AC’s underwater cavern.

Living darkness, living light

I may still have this one lying around somewhere. Literally, light or darkness that could move and attack. Light was Law, darkness was Chaos, and they could only be hit by magic weapons, which only did half damage.

Rock Dryads

Normal dryads live in trees. Rock dryads live in giant geodes. Their treasure is inside their rocks. I’m guessing from the notes here that it takes 5 dryads to charm someone. Much later, I named these petraiads, and they’re still in Gods & Monsters.

Shadowbird (Darkwing)

This creature appears on the notes for the college, but I don’t think they appear anywhere in the adventure—certainly not under that name, now that I have search.

AC 4, HD 5, At 2 claws/bite, D 1-6/1-6/2-8, save F3, NE. Treasure is nil.

Anyone seeing it must save vs. paralysis or run with fear.

Shadow slave

This creature appears on the notes for the college, but I don’t think they appear anywhere in the adventure—certainly not under that name, now that I have search.

AC 2, HD 12, At shadow weapon at +2, D 2-8 and 1 point constitution, save F12, CE. Number appearing is 1-4 (0), and treasure type is W.

Silver does half damage. Any losing all constitution become slaves of the shadow slave.

Sleestak

These are not my creation, of course, but they’re also not from the books. They’re from Sid & Marty Kroft’s Land of the Lost. In my interpretation, there are different colors of Sleestak: Green and Blue. Green Sleestak are HD 6+1, and Blue Sleestak are HD 6 to 8. The Blue Sleestak are probably the ones from Enoch’s time, and the Green Sleestak would then be their degenerate ancestors. Blue Sleestak can use magic, and for some reason save as Dwarves of one level higher. Green Sleestak save as Dwarves of 8th level.

Soul Stealer

I don’t see it in the basic or expert set, so this must be one of mine. The soul stealer can only be hit by magic weapons. Judging from the description in the map CC monster list, the souls it steals can somehow either be used or be freed. While this sounds like something from Elric, I had not read Michael Moorcock at this point (and still, to my shame, haven’t read any of the Elric books).

Vampire sharks!

Vampire sharks! must always include the exclamation point. Exclamations weren’t in the original, but I’ve decided to add them here. Lasers! optional.

What do you need to know about them? They’re sharks… and they’re vampires. Oh, they’re also “bull” sharks, which in the expert set are 8 feet long; they like to ram their prey, stunning it, and then attack the stunned prey the next round.*

People of the Island

Bandits

Bandits travel in groups of (1) level 5 fighter and (5) level 3 fighters. Two of the level 3 fighters will have a crossbow and 3d10 quarrels.

A group going to the city (sneak in, of course) will usually have one of the thieves with them also.

The thieves do not live with the bandits: they live in the forest. Their treasure is buried. See map.

Bandits and thieves all have a holy symbol.

Demons

There are 700 common demons, 100 minor demons, and 30* major demons.

Common Demons

AC 0, HD 6+10, Move 300' (100'), At: 2 claws/fire, D7-17x2/5-10, 700, save F12, ML 8 (12), CE

Common Demons can only possess with the help of a God-Demon, and the person gets a save vs. turn to stone at -3. Clerics at Level 7 may attempt a turn with an 11 needed to turn, progression as normal. Up to 5 demons may inhabit a person at a time. These demons may only materialize in the material plane as a fire person, only partly solid. A person who saves vs. a common may not be possessed by another common for 27 days, 18 hrs. Demons are immune to fire, and automatically make saves vs. magic fire.

Minor Demons

AC -3, HD 10+30, Move 420' (140'), At: 2 claws/fire, D8-29x2/5-10+1 level, 100, save F30, ML 9 (12), N(25%) or C/Evil)

Minor Demons may possess someone, and the person gets a save vs. turn to stone at -4. Clerics at Level 9 may attempt to turn one, progression as normal. These may take on the familiar goat form. Only 2 may possess a person at a time, but this is unlikely. These and above may enter freely into empty but alive bodies. (Of the trapped, these are the only who may escape in this manner.) Once a person saves vs. a minor demon, he cannot be possessed by another minor or common for 11 hours, 6 min. Damage done by magic fire is automatically half for these demons. Each Minor Demon leads 7 Common Demons.

Minor Demons may only be hit by magic weapons.

Major Demons

AC -5, HD 20+35, Move 600' (300'), AT 2 claws/fire, D11-36/7-11+2-3 levels, save F36, ML 8 (12), L(10%) or N (25%) or C/Evil. #: 30

Major Demons may possess someone, and the person gets -6 on save. Once a save vs. major demon is made, the character cannot be possessed by a major or less for 11 minutes 1 sec. 12Major Demons may possess someone, and the person gets -6 on save. Once a save vs. major demon is made, the character cannot be possessed by a major or less for 11 minutes 1 sec. 12th Level clerics§ may attempt to turn. Major Demons may take the goat form, human form, or the form of a giant raven. Damage done by magic fire is automatically cut in four for these demons.

Major Demons may only be hit by magic weapons.
