Dungeon #116 (2004)

This issue of Dungeon has an article on the 30 greatest D&D adventures of all time. It was judged by 16 top D&D designers (Cook, Greenwood, etc.).

With other classic adventures as companion, good old I-6 adventure (Ravenloft) made it to the #2 spot.


Dungeon # 110 – May 2004 (Dark Sun)

(companion to the May 2004 Dragonissue)

Dark Sun DM’s Handbook
Contains setting maps, areadescription, monster list. Kalidnay is mentioned on page 81, but noRavenloft mention is made (Sadly, that was to be predicted).

Level: 4-6


Dungeon # 58 (1995) - The Baron's Eyrie

Author: Jason Kuhl
Domain / location: any
Level: 5-7
: Interesting lycanthrope hunt to save an innocent. Weird but well designed new floating domain. Interesting NPCs (especially the insane ones)! 4 on 5.


Dungeon # 55 (1994) - The Sea Wolf

Author: Lisa Smedman
Domain / location: Somewhere on the Western Coast
Level: 4-6
: Written by Lisa Smedman to be included in Chilling Tales, but instead found it's way in Dungeon magazine for size consideration. A murder inquiry on a boat (the S.S. Bonniville) (and no, it's a sea adventure where the ship doesn't sink :) ). 4 on 5.


Dungeon # 52 (1994) - Laughing Man

Author: Paul Culotta
Domain / location: Valachan
Level: 5-9
: A short, 3 pages only adventure based on the Fang of the Nosferatu item. Interesting ghost side quest. 3 on 5.


Dungeon # 50 (1994) - Felkovic's Cat

Author: Paul Culotta
Domain / location: Valachan
Level: 6-9
Comment: Lengthy adventure (22 pages!). Wow, the best source of info on Valachan as I write this. In it, you get lots of info on the domain (social life, customs), and all the maps of Von Kharkov's Castle Pantara. It features the weird magical item, Cat of Felkovic, exploring the background of the item. As if wasn't enough, it also features the first appearance of Lady Aveline (funny 'veiled' drawing). It also presents a monster manual entry, the first werepanther. 5 on 5!


Dungeon # 42 (1993) - The Price of Revenge

Author: Steve Kurtz
Domain / location: Valachan
Level: 4-6
: Cool vampire hunt story, in Valachan, a domain where PCs are always walking on eggs… Interesting and well designed undead NPCs. 4 on 5.


Dungeon # 38 (1992) - Horror's Harvest

Author: Christopher Perkins
Domain / location: Falkovnia
Level: 2-4
: Heavily influenced by Invasion of the Body Snatcher movie, a good adventure set in Falkovnia. It of course features Doppelganger Plants, sinister village denizens, and even radiation effects! Cool issue cover too. 4 on 5.


Dungeon # 31 (1991) - Bane of the Shadowborn

Author: William W Connors
Domain / location: Shadowborn Manor
Level: 6-9
: Interesting dungeon crawl in a strange manor. Good expansion of the material found in the Darklords accessory. For a novelized version of the manor part, read the Ravenloft novel Shadowborn – good inspiration for any DM taking his players to Shadowborn Manor. Weird end battle with Ebonbane. 3 on a scale of 5.
