S2 White Plume Mountain TSR9027, Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 1st Edition Vintage TSR Greyhawk Adventure Module by Lawrence Schick, Fair Condition
This listing is for a vintage copy of S2 The Ghost Tower of Inverness. This excellent adventure was published by TSR in the early days of this whole tabletop gaming revolution. This adventure was authored by Lawrence Schick as a "try-out" to get a job at TSR. Rumour has it that Mr. Schick took rooms from his various dungeons and jammed them together to show off his talent. He was surprised TSR printed the module without any changes and is a bit embarrassed about the sword Blackrazor which was a blatant rip-off of Michael Moorcocks's sword Stormbringer, wielded by the anti-hero Elric, the eternal champion.
I loved playing and running this adventure. It is a classic "fun-house" dungeon. Every room presents the players with a new, different, and bizarre challenge. Lots of thinking is needed by your players to survive this adventure.
From the cover of the adventure:
This module contains background information, referee's notes, player aids, a complete map level, a cutaway view of the mountain complex, and more than 15 pieces of art for both DM and player. WHITE PLUME MOUNTAIN is from the special ("S") series; like others in the series, it is meant to stand on its own and is a complete ADVANCED DUNGEONS & DRAGONS adventure. The recommended number of players is four to ten, with levels ranging from fifth to tenth.
This adventure is in Good condition showing heavy wear. Definitely a playing copy! The cover shows heavy scuffing, corner rounding, moderate creasing, and edgewear. The upper left-hand corner is scrunched a bit. There are a few stray pen marks. The adventure book's pages are grey with age and use, the corners are rounded and there are a few small discolored spots at the edges. A few pages are folded about 1/8 of an inch. The outer pages are scuffed, but there is no writing and overall it is very clean. This adventure is complete and ready to challenge another group or two of adventurers.
If you are a Greyhawk aficionado like myself, here is a link to a great online map of the Flanaess by Anna B. Meyer. I can get lost in this map for hours!
This adventure is in Fair condition showing heavy wear. It is missing the "Legend of Keraptis" and Keraptis's riddle. These have been replaced with copies. Definitely a playing copy!
The cover shows heavy scuffing, corner rounding, moderate creasing, and heavy edgewear. There are a few stray red pen marks. There are stains on the cover that carry through to the map. They are light and not very bad. There are indentations from writing on the cover. It is very sturdy. The adventure book's pages are grey with age and use, the corners are rounded and there are a few small discolored spots at the edges. The cover is loose and the last page with the player's handouts is missing but has been replaced. There is a red pen mark on one page. The outer pages are scuffed and worn. This adventure is complete and ready to challenge another group or two of adventurers.
