Item Details

This is a very fun adventure for the Dungeons and Dragons Expert Set. This 32-page module was authored by David Cook and published by TSR in 1983. It is the first of a two-part adventure that concludes in X5, The Temple of Death. Although, the villain does return in X10, Red Arrow, Black Shield. Does evil ever die?


From the cover of the adventure. To arms! To arms! The battle lines are drawn as desert men and inhuman tribes wait poised to strike on the fertile and rich lands of the east. The call has gone out through the civilized lands. The armies have been raised to match the invading foes from the west. Nobles and peasants have joined swords to greet the foes. But Fate or Chance has decreed another role for a small few. No glorious banners will wave on their march. No squadrons of knights will charge at their word. Instead, they will fight the war with stealth, secrecy, and cunning. The risks they will take are great, but the fates of both armies lie with them. It begins one night for your party far from the fighting. Suddenly you are entrusted with the most dangerous mission of the war. Can you cross the Sind Desert, occupied now by enemy armies, to find the Great Pass? Can you find the one known only as The Master? What will you do if you find him? So begins your adventure in The Master of the Desert Nomads, the first module of a two-part adventure that can be concluded in the exciting Temple of Death or played entirely on its own. Can your party do what must be done?


This copy is in Very Good condition. The cover shows light corner rounding and creasing along the fold, light edge wear, and heavy scuffing. There are very light rust stains along the fold from the slightly rusty staples holding the adventure book together. The maps are nice and clean.

The adventure book is in Very Good condition showing staple rust, moderate corner rounding, and light edge wear. It is clean and free of any writing.
