Item Details

This listing is for a vintage copy of TSR Fantasy Adventure Module I5 the Lost Tomb of Martek. The Lost Tomb of Martek is the third and final module in the Desert of Desolation trilogy. It is designed for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons First Edition. It can be used with the second edition as well. Heck, I also ran it in 3e. No reason it can't be adapted for 4th or 5th as well with some work.

Published in 1983 Lost Tomb of Martek is a 32-page adventure that will challenge characters of levels 7-9. Authored by Tracy Raye Hickman, the creator of the DragonLance Saga and also a New York Times best-selling author.


From the back of the module:

Your sleek cloudskate skims across the Skysea. It is midnight. All day long the glass sea-soaked up the scorching desert sunlight. Now, that heat lifts your ship a few inches off the glass and fills its sails. The only sound you hear is the soft swish of the diamond-edged rudder as it cuts a path across the Skysea. One thousand years ago, the wizard Martek knew that you would come to find his sphere of power. Now, one of his glowing Star Gems shows you the way. The starlight, reflected in the glass beneath you, flickers peacefully. Suddenly, the Skysea before you bursts up into a thousand shards of splintered glass, showering into the moonlight! A horrible creature is silhouetted against the moon. You strain against the rudder to keep your ship upright. Too late! Your cloudskate tips onto one runner, and then tumbles over, skidding to a stop on the glass. As your companions struggle to right the ship, you turn to face the monster. You must hold the creature back to give them time. Without the ship, none of you can get off the glass before the sun rises in the morning. Martek's prophecy spoke of heroes, tests, and dangers. Are you the heroes? What are the tests? What dangers and riches lie ahead?


This classic adventure is in Good to Very Good condition. The exterior covers are both in Good to almost very good condition. The outer cover has a 1' separation along the bottom that has been taped. There is heavy corner rounding/edgewear, moderate creasing along the fold, and a large crease along the back. The second cover shows some wear along the fold and heavy corner rounding. It is almost in Very Good condition. The adventure book is in Very Good condition and looks like it was never used. There is a little corner rounding and edge wear. The pages are white and clean. I do not think it was ever used. This copy is in great condition for a playing copy and will entertain and challenge your players.
