The Hidden Ziggurat, a home-made module

This is a short module I made for Red Box Vancouver. I ran three sessions of it, and short summaries can be found on the RBV forums, starting here.

I used Dave’s Mapper to generate a random dungeon map, and made a few slight modifications in Photoshop. I then stocked the dungeon using the rules in Moldvay’s Basic D&D, then added my own ideas so that the dungeon made sense in the end, including some nice colour text culled from a previous phase of black ziggurat enthusiasm. And with the addition of a few short wandering monster tables, I was done.

So here it is for you, if you want it. The last two pages are just the map on page 2 but bigger. If you don’t need them, don’t print them out. There are no monster stats here, because you can get those from the Moldvay Basic book.

  1. That’s a nice little adventure.

  2. Hi,

    Apologies for the off-topic comment, but I couldn’t find a contact email for you.

    I’ve recently put out an ebook of my writing, called ‘The New Death and others’. It’s mostly short stories, with some obvious gamer-interest material. For example I have a story inspired by OD&D elves, as well as poems which retell Robert E Howard’s King Kull story ‘The Mirrors of Tuzun Thune’ and HP Lovecraft’s ‘Under the Pyramids’.

    I was wondering if you’d be interested in doing a review on your blog.

    If so, please let me know your email, and what file format is easiest for you, and I’ll send you a free copy. You can email me (news@apolitical.info) or reply to this thread.

    You can download a sample from the ebook’s page on Smashwords:

    I’ll also link to your review from my blog.

    Yours,
    James.

  3. Hi James,
    That sounds pretty interesting, but to be quite honest, I’m neck deep in working on a degree right now and I don’t have all that much time to spare until December probably. On the other hand, I read Princess of Mars again recently and have some thoughts I’d like to post about it, so I’d be very interested in reading your poem on that when it’s done.
    Cheers,
    Johnstone.

  4. Update: cr0m informs me he has accepted the challenge and will be providing a review of The New Death and Others.
