"Go to the sign of Harvel's Axe, a dubious inn on the edge of the Thieves Quarter, in the City of Greyhawk, and look to your own wrist. If you perceive a bracelet and dangling dice, watch for the next throw in the war between Law and Chaos and be prepared to follow the compelling geas." -Signal

This scenario is the complete Advanced Dungeons & Dragons tournament adventure used at the Denver Gamers Association convention, Ganghis Con held in May 1980.
Centuries ago, in a far away place, an awesome weapon was invented that threatened to destroy the world. A great battle was fought over this weapon and as a result, it was tossed into the deepest part of the ocean. The weapon was thought destroyed and the world was safe once again.
Many years passed, and rumors began circulating that religious fanatic named Cimosco was attempting to find the final resting place of this weapon of awesome power. If he managed to find and restore this weapon, its horror would once again be unleashed on the world.
Cimsco searched for years and finally found the resting place of the terrible weapon. He enlisted the aid of the sea-dwellers and raised the remains of the artifact. What emerged from beneath the sea was nothing more than a coral-encrusted lump, but repeted blows with mighty sledges released the weapon from its stone like bondage. Four centuries of coral ans salt had not harmed it in any way. Until a way is found to destroy the weapon once and for all, its hellish power threatens all living things.

"The End of the World Is at Hand
A hideous death cult has seized control of an ancient artifact-monument known as Tovag Baragu. The power behind the cult is the Old One himself, Iuz the Evil, demonic master of an empire. He's on an all-or-nothing quest for supremacy over the world - and the heavens beyond.
To stop him, heroes must face horrors never dreamed of, journeying to a shadowed city where Death rules and the living cower. Here, Iuz will achieve his mad dream by destroying imprisoned master of that alien citadel - Vecna, the mightiest lich, an immortal demigod.
Two items exist with the power to stop Iuz - the Eye amd the Hand of Vecna - but using them carries fantastic risks. Not even the gods know what will be unleashed when these items are fully activated.
Die Vecna Die! takes the heroes from the GREYHAWK campaign to the demiplane of RAVENLOFT and then to the PLANESCAPE city of Sigil. However, none of the material from those settings is required for play."

No Future - Get used to the taste of ashes.
The Countdown to the apocalypse has begun. As our darkened globe spins through the eternal night, the lasting legacy of the human race is nothing but a scream--drowned out by the roar of destiny devouring us all. This is your last chance to show the cosmos what it means to be human: the will to fight.

Brace yourself for the final world order: The Insects of Shaggai, alien parasites subverting the leadership of a nation; PISCES, the U.K.'s attempt to harness the unknown; The Army of the Third Eye, terrorists fighting a bloody battle against alien invaders; GRU SV-8, a band of desperate operatives fighting darkness in the ruins of Russia; The Skoptsi, occult fanatics with an eight-hundred-year legacy; The OUTLOOK Group, where Majestic-12 tests its elite; Phenomen-X, a syndicated TV news show that pokes its camera in all the wrong places; Tiger Transit, a former CIA airline now in the clutches of a Tcho-Tcho drug cartel; The D Stacks at the American Museum of Natural History, where Dr. Jensen Wu classifies the unclassifiable; The Keepers of the Faith, traditionalist ghouls fighting the lean and hungry Heretic ghouls beneath the streets of Manhattan; and The Hastur Mythos, a twisted skein of surreal destruction weaving its way through humanity.
Plus: New skills; new spells; new Mythos tomes; rules for psychics; a microbiologist's dossiers on paranormal lifeforms; profiles of international intelligence and law-enforcement agencies; dozens of useful NPCs; two scenarios; a short campaign; and more.

From the back of the book:
The year is 2094, but the future is not our own. The Last War ended 13 years ago when the supernatural doomsday bombs fell, killing billions and terrorforming the world into a vast Deadland, allowing the mysterious and powerful Rockoners to manifest in the flesh. These unholy beings rampaged across the Wasted West, decimating the survivors of the Apocalypse, then mysteriously vanishing across the Mississippi to parts unknown.
Since then, humanity has struggled to rebuild. The cities shudder beneath still-howling storms, leaving only the wastes to those few who remain. Deadlands: Hell on earth is completely compatible with its companion game, the award winning Deadlands: The Weird West. This is not the end of the story, but a twisted start to a tale unlike any you've ever played before! It's once again a time for heroes. Players take on the roles of radslinging Doomsayers, vengeful Law Dogs, brain-burning sykers, scavenger junkers, and righteous Templars -- or simply gun-toting survivors. Only by warring against the darkness all around them can the heroes hope to end this Hell on Earth - and they'd better hurry. Some say the Reckoners are about to return. And soon.
