I *thought* I had a cool original-ish idea. Well...not so much.
It was pointed out to me (thanks Sciamantis!) that this was already done in a series of 2nd Ed adventures.
I must have had some knowledge of these, at least in a broad sense. I don't own them and they date from my D&D hiatus of the late 90s. They are written by +Bruce R Cordell, so that gives me confidence but otherwise I know very little about them. Anyone have any experience or knowledge of these? I'd like to know more about them before I start cruising Half-Price Books and eBay for them. They are not up on DnDClassics.com yet.
That also brings up a larger issue. I am using modules in my game here to give my kids a shared experience with other gamers. B2 is a rite of passage, the GDQ series is equally iconic. These are things they can talk about with others. Hell I don't even need to describe them, I can just say B2 or GDQ.
But these other adventures are not the same are they? They might be great, they might even be perfect for me, but if I didn't even recall them then how much of a shared experience can they get?
