"Go to the sign of Marvel'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

DQ1 The Shattered Statue

This is a module published by TSR after they had acquired Dragonquest from SPI. It is an AD&D adventure that has rules for adapting the encounters to be compatible with Dragonquest.

From the back cover:

"A mutual friend has praised your skills highly. If you seek rich reward and the oppurtunity to delve into mysteries ancient and lost, bring this bottle forthwith to my demesne in the village of Volkumburgh. Together we may seek to bring mankind the lost wonder of the awtawmatawn."

A mysterious note, a disappearing 5-foot-long religious artifact, and the ruins of two magical schools. What do these things have in common? How deeply are your party members involved in all of this?

"The Shattered Statue" is the first dual-game-system module of its kind. Players of both the AD&D game system and DRAGONQUEST game system can use this adventure. It is suitable for use with the FORGOTTEN REALMS campaign setting.

WR1 White Robes, Black Hearts

From Introduction:

White Robes, Black Hearts: Enigma of the Arcanexus is a challenging campaign adventure for characters levels 3-5, and serves as a logical continuation from the previously released free module Dead Fire. It is recommended that the PCs consists of 4-6 characters (about party level 5), and it is almost vital to the adventure for a party to include a wizard or sorcerer, and a rogue. Certain areas of this adventure are extremely dangerous, and so you should decide whether you wish to keep extra NPCs on file for the players to adopt, or whether you want to be liberal in your interpretation of the rules for lingering at death’s door and the rules regarding the limitations of resurrection. While this adventure is designed to be difficult, it is not designed to kill parties.
