Welcome to 1980s

One of the nice side effects of the lockdowns has been that I’ve had the opportunity to get back into playing Dungeons and Dragons.

Over the last year some friends and myself have been playing weekly and we’ve made our way through the introductory campaign “Dragon of Icespire Peak”.

Having successfully completed the afore mention campaign an interest in meeting the Drow and hence we moved onto playing “Out the Abyss”.

A few months later the party has escaped their captors (at least for now) and find themselves in a position to return to the surface.

Assuming they do return topside and don’t fancy returning to the Underdark, the plan was to allow them to work their way though the “Dungeon of the Mad Mage” which would give a nice change of pace.

It’s more a straight forward dungeon crawl in classic DnD sense, much like the old Red-Box Basic DnD set I got in long long ago.

Which got me thinking maybe now is a good time to revisit “The Keep on the Borderland” one of the starting modules which was released with the Basic Set.

I remember pouring over the original module all those years ago, so getting a chance to revisit it all these years later to really appealing.
