Stupid Oldschool Want List

My parasite piece is long winded and only 30 entries but word count what i would normaly do for 100 things....

Stupid oldschool wishlist

Went to old list modules i want and once had and smaller than i expected
I had all of these and a mountain of dragons and sold them to buy more comics as a teen

If anyone has at nice price of finds cheap grab for me becaus i have only seen 4th ed stuff second hand here in SA

B4 C1 I1 N1 X2 are my fave by far and want the most
If extra big fancy versions of these came out would be nice
Slightly tempted by B1B2 revision book

A1-4  slavelords
separate or book with lot ** (most cases prefer separate)

I probably liked first two best - last ones were kind of meaner
My first real look at high level adnd classes in use and tactics
B1 In Search of the Unknown - generic dungeon i can slap anywhere **
B2 The Keep on the Borderlands - cornball classic **
B4 The Lost City - one of the best ever *****
C1 The Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan - crazy aztec shit ****
C2 The Ghost Tower of Inverness - only hazy memories **
D1 Shrine of the Kuo-Toa ***
D2 Descent into the Depths of the Earth ***
D3 Vault of the Drow *** those dirty dirty druggy sexy drow
I1 Dwellers of the Forbidden City - one of the best *****
I2 Tomb of the Lizard King - i enjoyed at the time ****
I3-5 Desert of Desolation Trilogy enjoyed as a kid  but low priority ***
L1 The Secret of Bone Hill *** remember only scant detail
N1 Against the Cult of the Reptile God - a fave i have run and ripped off lots *****
S1 Tomb of Horrors*** bonus star for the art book
S2 White Plume Mountain *** I had orange version
S3 Expedition to the Barrier Peaks - great with ASE1-3 ****
U1 The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh - best of this trilogy ****
U2 Danger at Dunwater **
U3 The Final Enemy ** think this one pretty tedious
UK1 Beyond the Crystal Cave - don't really know well
Uk2 The Sentinel *** ok series with interesting low rank relics
UK3 The Gauntlet *** great castle battle
UK4 When a Star Falls **** lots of running around and good gnomes
UK5 Eye of the Serpent **** best railroad for kids
UK6 All That Glitters... ** remember cover thats it
UK7 Dark Clouds Gather ** all i remember is flying monkeys
X1 The Isle of Dread ** probably idea of this has been done better nowadays
X2 Castle Amber ***** wow lots of stuff to do and Clark Ashton Smith style
a few other X series desrt nomads one i liked running as a kid and had good monster art

Ive played the giants series lots - i think they are tedious an weak
Hill giant big fight took a whole session and lots of dice then nothing after that seems to be a threat, original monoprint covers had best art compared to green combination vol

Still want deities and demigods with cthulhu and unearthed arcana
Temple of elemental evil book
First 2 Gammaworld modules want lots

Main new things I want now are the New Metamorphosis Alpha Epsilon City Box Set
A few GURPS things too...

Possibly will cave and get some reprints of my 
faves but paper looks glossy


  1. That does make me wonder if there is a better offering for The Isle of Dread. Gygax's Isle of the Ape didn't quite make the bar (I generally throw the area in as a valley on the Isle of Dread).

    1. Isle of dread has some good basics and has room to expand - i will probably put next to hotsprings - i liked the caves underneat but reminded me of Volturus for star frontiers a bit - steamy crystal caves, lost elder race - seems tp have room to move and add to. Got a osr underwater module id like to add further sth or north plus candy iles....

  2. actually id like to revise and do detailed add ons to lots of these

    Lost Caverns of Tsothjanth are *****
    i have two copies


I love and welcome feedback but not spambots
Good feedback and suggestions inspire me to write more
