Stephen Colbert on Dungeons and Dragons

Mike (over at Swords and Dorkery) mentioned this morning that the Wikipedia article of the day was about "Expedition to the Barrier Peaks".  So I headed on over to give it a read. 

After reading, I started clicking around and went over to the Stephen Colbert page at Wikipedia.  From there I clicked on a reference about D&D and went to this GameSpy interview where he talks about his years playing D&D and the "Thieves Fortress of Badabaskor".

I've heard of this adventure, but I've never played it.  The old Judge's Guild stuff really interests me now from a historical (and wild ideas) perspective.  Back in the day, I didn't buy much of it because I didn't have a lot of disposable income.  That's not so true today.  :)

I haven't read through the adventure yet, but it does have a cool cutaway map.  Here it is for your viewing pleasure.
Enjoy the articles.  I may post about TFoB in the future, if I get a chance to run it.
