Back in '83, as a fledgling DM, I decided to kick off my first campaign.
If you own (and 66 people do! Thanks so much!) my "Wilderness Alphabet" then you'll have read a few of my references to this campaign and this campaign world. It's still my dream to write it up and put out a book a'la the Arduin Grimoires...
I started off by drawing outdoor maps on that 11x17 hexpaper TSR used to sell (I hope to find and scan those someday...) and eventually I started writing adventures.
"The Evil Temple of Fraz-Urb'luu" was my very first.
Its obvious that I was influenced (early on) by the concept of "module". It's got maps and very complete descriptions for each room. I'm ABSOLUTELY POSITIVE that the thing was COMPLETELY WRITTEN UP before play began. I did improvise some during play and it's these bits that I remember best. It was in a ring binder originally, but now it's in a red paper three-hole folder. I probably moved it into the folder soon after play concluded (for safe keeping!)
For the next few weeks, I'm going to go through this module in a series of posts. Little by little, I'll document my rememberings and thoughts about the adventure. I'll put up some scans of the maps and the room descriptions. Eventually, I'll post the whole thing so you can see it in one piece.
Maybe you'll even want to use it in your campaign somewhere! :)
