Dungeonland and the Magic Mirror


When I was running my Queston campaign in the late 80's for my high school friends and college buddies, I used parts of DUNGEONLAND to fill out the mythical continent of (this is a mouthful) Mythophantarealean (!)

I used the Smilodon Cat, the Mad Hatter and the Caterpillar atop the mushroom to great effect.

I have no experience with BEYOND THE MAGIC MIRROR, but it looks like it comes from a similar vein and could be of great use in any madhouse dungeon.

Gary Gygax must have used these (or similar) in Castle Greyhawk.  Here's part of the introduction from MAGIC MIRROR:

ENTERING THE LAND BEYOND THE MAGIC MIRROR
The entry point for The Land Beyond the Magic Mirror will be
shown on the proper level of the Greyhawk Castle Dungeon
series when it is finally done. As that is likely to be years from
now, it is probable that you will be inserting this module into
your existing campaign.
I don't know if he ever reference these modules in Castle Greyhawk (or elsewhere).

DOWNLOAD BOTH MODULES HERE BEFORE THEY ARE GONE!

I've got the hard copies, of course, but it's nice to have an official pdf. Nice catch!
