A to Z of Adventure! J is for Jeff Dee Adventures

J is for Jeff Dee Adventures.

These adventures are not classics. In fact they are only a few years old. But they do have a solid pedigree.  They were both designed and illustrated by legendary TSR artist, and co-creator of the Villians and Vigilantes game, +Jeff Dee.

JD1 Cess-Pit of the Bog-Mother
This is a fun little adventure for characters level 1-3 for your favorite Old-School game.
At just under 10 pages it is perfect for a quick afternoon game. It would work great while traveling to another adventure or in-between towns. The map is repeated in b&w (blue and white) and full-color versions.

JD2 Darkland Moors
Another mini-adventure, this time for a little bit higher lever adventurers. The basic idea here is to investigate the moor and defeat a cyclops causing trouble.  There are three black and white maps.  Given this is about a cyclops I could work it into the Giants series pretty easily.

Both adventures are under $2.50 and you get an adventure you can run in an afternoon.  Perfect for slotting in between other adventures or even to break up the campaign a little.

So there are short games - I did wonder :) When everyone talks about role playing games it always seems so epic :)

They can fit into an epic plot. Or be something like a "Monster of the Week" sort of game. Sometimes you don't want to do epic, sometimes you want to fight the monster. ;)

I'll echo Natasha's comment really. I never got into RP, although I do remember playing one on my Spectrum :O And I miss Rogue...
I think I don't really want to fight the monsters - just find the key :)

Jemima, I loved Rogue. It was based off of a game called "Moria" which in turn was based on the classic version of D&D!

I played it on my old Color Computer 3, but it was very much like the Spectrum version.
