    yay!! old skoolers UNITE!

    yeah, i've had a laugh too.

    caves of B1, might do that one eventually. B2 is the first module i ever owned though. i didn't own B1 until about 10 years ago when i found it in a garage sale for a nickel along with a 1st ed DMG, PH, and MM all for 1 dollar each. you can only imagine how long it took me to get my wallet out.

    Actually, yes. Bree-Yark was my standard greeting for a few years as a teenager. For some inexplicable reason, I never had a girlfriend... Also, I just loved Goblins: loathsome, rubbery things that regenerate after you chop them up. Oh yeah, did I mention I never had a girlfriend in high school?

    Strangely enough, after a spate of Caves of Chaos references at the end of last year, I went for a hunt through my tiny garage. So I've read my 3rd edition copy of the D&D Basic Set and Dungeon Module B2 very recently.

    Actually, I got it out for the blue rule book. At the back is a Sample Cross Section of the Great Stone Skull, The Pit, and the Domed City, and a map of the tunnels under Zenopus' Tower. I'm lovin' that style.

    Yep, I like the direction your map is taking.
    Last weekend, me and my pals we were talking about old times scenarios and about the first one we’ve play: that came to either this one (B2: The Keep on the Borderlands), the B3: Palace of the Silver Princess or in my case, B7: Rahasia.

    The only thing missing IMHO, is my petrify elven hero in the middle of the grass area with birds nesting on top of him... old memories are always fun.

    Continue your good work,
    Alu.

    "Sho-Rembo" (David Cohen, of Futurama notoriety, apparently had a PC with the moniker) was named in B1 rather than B2… and I don't recall an illustration.

    She must have been an exceptionally comely… and devious!… halfling.

    You really cant beat those old mods for some great H&S fun. Good referance material too. I keep copies of B1, X1, X5, U1, U3, B4, C2, B8, B9, collected temple series, collected Slavers series and the collected Demonweb series all right next to my computer just for Ideas/Insperation. Use to have more but they are either in boxes i havent found yet or lost in the sands of time.

    (Now, without digging around online who can put names with those Module codes?)

    Very nice Neon!

    X5: Temple of Death (Loved Castle Amber but saddly all I have left of my copy is the front cover.)
    B4: The Lost City
    B9: Castle Caldwell and Beyond
    B8: Journey to The Rock
    And yes its the collected versions of Temple/Slavers/Demonweb. (Really want to run these all in order someday.)
    U2 is M.I.A. from my collection.

    I did maps of Castle Amber's interior a while ago - they aren't the greatest but they are here somewhere.

    I've often thought of remapping the Keep on the Borderlands, but it would just seem like sacrilege.
