"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

X4 - Master of the Desert Nomads

From the back:

To arms! To arms! The battle lines are drawn as desert men and inhuman tribes wait poised to strike on the fertile and rich lands of the east. The call has gone out through the civilized lands. The armies have been raised to match the invading foes from the west. Nobles and peasants have joined swords to greet the foes.

But Fate or Chance has decreed another role for the small few. No glorious banners will wave on their march. No squadrons of knights will charge at their word. Instead, they will fight the war with stealth, secrecy, and cunning. The risks they will take are great, but the fates of both armies lie with them.

It begins one night for your party far from the fighting. Suddenly you are entrusted with the most dangerous mission of the war.

Can you cross the Sind Desert, occupied now by enemy armies, to find the Great Pass?

Can you find the one known only as The Master?

What will you do if you do find him?

So beings your adventure in The Master of the Desert Nomads, the first module of a two-part adventure that can be concluded in the exciting Temple of Death or played entirely on its own. Can your party do what must be done?

N4 - Treasure Hunt

 From the back cover:

The island of Viledel, the mighty Sea King, was sacked by a pirate army sixty years ago. Its destruction was so complete that even the location of the island was lost and forgotten. Despite the rumors of immense treasures still hidden in the ruined stronghold, no one ever found the Sea King's island again.

Until now. Through the cruel twist of fate, a small band of unwilling adventures is washed ashore on a small, barren island, and discovers what remains of the Viledel's settlement. But they aren't alone; marauding orcs and goblins have found the island, too, and are frantically searching for the lost hoard. In this desperate treasure hunt, the real payoff may be survival.

Treasure Hunt is different from other AD&D game adventures. The player characters begin the game at zero level, without choosing a class, and must work their way up to the first level. It is perfect for a group of beginning players or experienced players looking for a new and different challenge.
