Continuing with my favorite 1st Edition AD&D adventure modules.

Honorable Mention: I3 Pharaoh
I3 Pharaoh
Our thief got a ring of contrariness and refused to follow the party leader’s direction through Kordan’s Master Maze. Funny and frustrating all at the same time!

5. G1-2-3 Against the Giants
G123 Against the Giants
Battle royale in the Hill Giant Chief’s Long Hall. Many dead, both giants and adventurers!

4. U1 The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh
U1 The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh
Awesome starting adventure. I wish Saltmarsh were detailed. That would have moved it up in the rankings. Paladin died without ever reaching the Haunted House, killed by a random Giant Weasel encounter!

3. L2 The Assassin’s Knot
L2 The Assassin's Knot
Best mystery adventure written for any edition.

2. T1 The Village of Hommlet
T1 The Village of Hommlet
Best introductory adventure written. Provides a great home base for adventurers and an interesting and fun story.

1. I6 Ravenloft
I6 Ravenloft
Gothic horror done right! The first run through of this adventure provided some of the most memorable, creepy moments we’ve ever had playing AD&D.
