D&D AC3/AC5/AC8 - The Revenge of Rusak
I am really not sure what is in this as it is still in the shrink. That is of course not rue but this is a module with a very definite identity crisis. It is listed on here as AC3 (which it isn't) and then in later printings a sticker was slapped on it labeling it AC5 (which it wasn't) and in fact it is listed on TSR roles as AC8 which it is but was never labeled as that on the product.
The module consists of 3D paper models that can be cut out and folded up for use with the adventure. I have never used one of these in that manner. There are a few modules TSR released like this and I am not sure what percentage of them remain intact but I am sure it is rare. The three WG modules come to mind as hard ones to find in general and intact complicates it more.
The module clocks in at a whopping eight pages but I am sure most people bought it for the props. It is a fairly basic idea and the picture on the cover and blurb on the back lay out most of what you would want to know. It does have some new magic items and a monster included as well.
From the back of the book:
Princess Arelina rushes from the tent as total disorder breaks out across the camp. She descends on your party as you struggle to secure your weapons...
Wonderfully descriptive, isn't it? Well, now you can see it for yourself with the 3-D DRAGON tiles. Use the DRAGON Tiles to bring your DUNGEONS & DRAGONS and ADVANCED DUNGEONS & DRAGONS adventures to life.
This package includes 3-D figures featuring tents, trees, carts, a waterfall, and characters. A sheet of 2-sided tiles include trails, streams, creatures, and other wilderness features. A wilderness mapping grid is included to help you lay out wilderness encounters quickly.
The 3-D DRAGON Tiles also comes with a special D&D adventure, "The Revenge of Rusak."
