This index presents all FORGOTTEN REALMS(R) campaign
information of every sort that could be found in two TSR publications:
DUNGEON(R) Adventures (September/October 1986 to January/February
1996) and POLYHEDRON(R) Newszine (Summer 1981 to December 1995).
Heartfelt thanks go out to Duane Maxwell of the RPGA(R) Network (RPGA

This index is intended to aid Dungeon Masters in supplementing
their campaigns. Short notes of explanation, adventure placement,
and points of special interest are given for many references here.
DMs who download this file should adjust the layout and add spacing,
boldfacing, etc. as necessary to improve legibility. Any additions,
corrections, suggested format revisions, or supplemental notes are
welcome; please e-mail them to TSRRoger@aol.com to ensure they are
read and incorporated into future updates; credit will be given to
those who help out. Enjoy!

#19 (September/October 1989) onward.
*** Faerun ***
14/4: "Masqueraider" (Randy Maxwell): Set in Cormyr; main foe is an
interesting and nasty creature from the old FIEND FOLIO(R) tome, with
its powers clarified for easier game-play.
14/14: "A Question of Balance" (Nigel D. Findley): Set in a village
on the border of Cormyr and Sembia. PCs meet the bad-tempered
Havenmere sheep, an insurance salesman from Lake Geneva, Wisconsin,
and an extremely nasty extraplanar creature previously undescribed
(and not described since).
15/31: "The Glass House" (Wolfgang Baur): Set in region north of
Waterdeep and south of Leilon. Introduces the <Codicil of While> (a
spellbook) and a new spell, <frost fingers>.
16/38: "Necropolis" (Nigel D. Findley): Set in village in Impiltur;
adventure is NOT related to Gary Gygax's DANGEROUS JOURNEYS(TM)
adventure of the same name. Consider using RAVENLOFT(R) campaign
guidelines for DMs running horror scenarios.
18/4: "Irongard" (Ed Greenwood): Set in the Stonelands north of
Cormyr; one PC is <cursed> at the adventure's start. Adventure
includes a new spell (<curse of forgetfulness>) and a new magical
item (<flying dagger>). (See DUNGEON issue #21, page 2, "Letters,"
for an important correction.)
19/17: "The Serpent's Tooth" (Nigel D. Findley): Set in the city of
Scornubel, between Baldur's Gate and Cormyr.
19/38: "House of Cards" (Randy Maxwell): Set in the city of Westgate,
south of Cormyr on the Dragon Coast; uses both AD&D 1st Edition and
2nd Edition rules, as well as a black-and-white version of the <deck
of many things> (simultaneously printed in color in DRAGON(R) issue
#148). Involves war between the Night Masks and Shore Patrol thieves
guilds; might conflict with later material (e.g., the Harpers novel
<Masquerades>, by Kate Novak and Jeff Grubb).
20/6: "The Ship of Night" (Wolfgang Baur): Set in the Savage North,
involving exploration of the lost dwarven city of Hammerkeep (Arzhoun
clan). Very detailed information on derro and their combat and
magical abilities, with maps and encounter tables for the underdark
in this region. New magical item (<phase potion>) and a remarkable
mechanical planetarium, built by dwarves.
21/2: "Letters": Important correction to "Irongard" in issue #18.
21/29: "Jammin'" (James M. Ward): Introductory SPELLJAMMER(R)
adventure that begins in Ravens Bluff. New magical item (<coffin of
creation>) and a new type of undead: colored skeletons, rolled into
balls, that perform different tasks. Details on wheel-lock pistol,
light catapult, medium ballista. Amusing Side Note: "Ren of the
Cloak" is part of a running (inside) joke at TSR; nearly all of Jim
Ward's RPG characters are named Ren, and the name is especially common
in GAMMA WORLD(R) game products and articles. (See "Ren o' the Star"
in <GREYHAWK(R) Adventures>, page 40, for example.)
26/6: "The Inheritance" (Paul F. Culotta): Adventure begins in
Waterdeep, then moves to Red Larch and to a castle south of the
Kryptgarden Forest. One PC inherits a castle but must defend it.
Includes details on the Lostafinga hobgoblin tribe.
28/8: "The Pipes of Doom" (Kristofer Wade): Set in the Savage North
near Loudwater and in the South Woods; involves a battle between a
fiend's army from Hellgate Keep and Loudwater/Waterdeep/Secomber
forces, ending at a korred circle. AD&D 2nd Edition BATTLESYSTEM(R)
rules are used, with unit rosters included. A minor artifact (<pipes
of doom>) is introduced, and major NPCs from Loudwater,
Menzoberranzan, Secomber, Semphar, Llorkh, and the Cult of the Dragon
are described (possible conflicts with other material, though this
was reviewed by Games division before publication).
28/50: "Visitors from Above" (Shonn Everett): SPELLJAMMER adventure
that begins in Neverwinter in the Savage North, then moves to Mount
Hotenow. Dwarves from the Tears of Selune are involved, and their
wildspace citadel is described (location of the Tears is unclear).
Also described is the demigoddess called the Lady of the Woods, and
the spelljamming <furnace helm>. A new unique magical item is
introduced (<ring of Burbul>). Warning: Use of the nautiloid
spelljammer will eventually result in the PCs being attacked by those
who mistake them for mind flayers.
29/8: "Nymph's Reward" (Jeffery L. Fairbourn): Set on the road
between Cormyr and the Dales (specifically, Tilverton and
Mistledale). Study information on hags (all types) carefully.
29/28: "Ex Libris" (Randy Maxwell): Adventure starts in Silverymoon
and leads to ruins (Bard Keep) northeast of there in the mountains.
A thinking-player's dungeon, actually a library built like a
sliding-tile puzzle; cut-out puzzle pieces are included for the DM.
Many valuable informational and magical books are described (among
them one entitled <Tactical Studies Rules>).
29/50: "'Til Death Do Us Part" (J. Mark Bicking): Set in the Dalelands
in the forest of Cormanthor; PCs begin by searching for ruins of Myth
Drannor, which they do not find. Nasty trap and villains.
30/8: "...And a Dozen Eggs" (Randy Maxwell): Set in sewers of
Waterdeep, where dinosaurs have gotten loose. Sewer-encounters table
and dinosaur-age table provided.
30/16: "Elminster's Back Door" (Ed Greenwood): Set in Shadowdale,
at Elminster's tower. Statistics for a watchghost are provided, from
<The Ruins of Undermountain> boxed set.
32/26: "Changeling" (R. Nathaniel Waldbauer): "Side Treks" adventure
set in the Troll Hills, about 250 miles north of Baldur's Gate. Very
short but startling encounter with a dragon.
34/8: "Euphoria Horrors" (Alan Grimes): Set in the Dalelands, just
northwest of Highmoon in Deepingdale. Interesting antidrug module.
34/center: AD&D(TM) Trading Cards for 1992, including two FORGOTTEN
REALMS characters: Hm-Boye (pun on "home boy") of Procampur, and
Reptilia Half-elven of the Dragonspine Mountains. Designed by TSR
Games division staff.
34/54: "On Wings of Darkness" (Craig H. Barrett): Set in Calimshan,
in the Marching Mountains near the headwaters of the River of Ice.
Political intrigue and the <create darkenbeast> spell.
35/7: "Letters": The reply to the letter "Geography Lesson" contains
some corrections to two FORGOTTEN REALMS products: FR9 <The
Bloodstone Lands> and FR6 <Dreams of the Red Wizards>.
36/40: "The Sea of Sorrow" (Steve Kurtz): This SPELLJAMMER adventure
includes some material about Realmspace and its position with
relation to several other crystal spheres, including Refuge (which
was created by Ed Greenwood). A map is even included showing
Realmspace and other spheres in their relative positions (page 44);
possibly no other map ever published by TSR has covered such an
37/20: "A Wizard's Fate" (Christopher Perkins): Set in a ruined tower
between Secomber and the High Forest.
38/4: "A Blight on the Land" (Richard Green): Set in Tethyr just one
month after the Time of Troubles; involves the Knights of the Shield
and political manipulations. A new magical device, the <Thayvian
beacon> (a monster attractor), is featured.
39/6: "Below Vulture Point" (Jeff Fairbourn): Set in the High Dale;
allows for zero-level characters.
40/18: "Khamsa's Folly" (J. Mark Bicking): Set in the desert of
Raurin, southeast of Mulhorand; uses spells from FR10 <Old Empires>,
reprinted with module. Introduces two new magical items: <flail of
the desert kings> and <circlet of the adder>. Strong Egyptian flavor.
43/52: "Into the Silver Realm" (Steve Kurtz): Starts in Mirabar just
south of the Spine of the World, moves to the Lurkwood, then into
the Astral Plane (githyanki/githzerai conflict). Introduces a
magical book, <Peregrin's Treatise on Fixed Portals>, connected to
an Astral Plane article in DRAGON issue #159.
45/32: "All Things Nice" (John Baichtal): "Side Treks" adventure set
on any road along the Sword Coast.
48/16: "The Oracle at Sumbar" (Paul Culotta): Starts in city of Yhaunn
in Sembia, then moves to an island in the Sea of Fallen Stars. Contains
background information and ship statistics for pirates of the Inner

in the Far Hills west of Cormyr.

Kryptgarden forest between Waterdeep and Triboar.
53/54: "Steelheart" (Paul F. Culotta): Set in Thar and Vaasa, north
of the Moonsea. Involves steel dragons, the Zhentarim, and the Cult
of the Dragon, and presents a detailed encounter table for Vaasa.
54/20: "The Fiends of Tethyr" (David Howery): Set in the seaport of
Velen, in Tethyr. Introduces the savage utahraptor from Chult.
Though "Monsterquest" (Vince Garcia, DUNGEON issue #10, page 23)
used some material from the RPGA(R) Network's <Gateway to Ravens
Bluff, the Living City> product, it is not specifically set in that
region. (Fort Bravery, in the module, is a pun based on Fort Courage
of an old TV series, "F Troop.")
Several modules are generic in nature but were suggested for use
with the FORGOTTEN REALMS setting. These are:
33/6: "That Island Charm" (M. S. Rooney, Patrick Carpenter, Greg
Gliedman): Suggested for port and island on the Sea of Fallen Stars.
A serious and challenging module, but look for "Gilligan's Island"
39/24: "Last of the Iron House" (Jasper Jones): Suggested for
placement near the city of Murann in Amn.
40/52: "The Draven Deeps' Menace" (Jeff Fairbourn): DRAGONLANCE(R)
module with alternate setting in Candlekeep in the FORGOTTEN REALMS
43/8: "Jacob's Well" (Randy Maxwell): Suggested for the Lurkwood east
of Mirabar, the Moonwood north of Silverymoon, or the Coldwood north
of Sundabar. Consider using RAVENLOFT campaign guidelines for DMs
running horror scenarios, and think of <Alien>.
46/50: "The Iron Orb of the Duergar" (Peter Aberg): Suggested for
Icewind Dale or Damara. Features a duergar artifact and the skiing
54/8: "Unhallowed Ground" (Dan De Fazio): Suggested for use with
followers of Ilmater; no physical setting given.
*** Kara-Tur ***
Note: OA = AD&D 1st Edition <Oriental Adventures> rules. Because this
volume introduced the lands of Kara-Tur, adventures using these rules
are assumed to take place somewhere within Kara-Tur unless they state
5/28: "The Kappa of Pachee Bridge" (Jay Batista): Short OA module,
not specifically placed in Kara-Tur but fits perfectly there.
7/37: "Samurai Steel" (Dan Salas): OA module set on island of Hinomoto
in Kozakura, compatible with set-up in module OA1 <Swords of the
Daimyo>; much political intrigue.

beginning in Shou Lung; introduces the OA land of Tabot (=Tibet),
with rules for mountain/glacier climbing and weather.
9/35: "The Golden Bowl of Ashu H'San" (Rick Swan): OA module set in
Kara-Tur but in no specific place. PCs must end a drought.

specifically placed in Kara-Tur but fits perfectly there.

southern jungles of Shou Lung. PCs get a letter from a fish and meet
a dragon in the Celestial Bureaucracy.
17/31: "The Waiting Room of Yen-Wang-Yeh" (Greg Kramer): OA module
set in Hira province in Kozakura, compatible with set-up in module
OA1 <Swords of the Daimyo>. Mission completion is challenging.
18/32: "Crocodile Tears" (Marcus Rowland): OA module set in any
coastal region of Kara-Tur (Kozakura or Wa would be best). Module
introduces a new demigod of children (Bosatsu Jizo), the wani
(gargantuan crocodile), and the tako (intelligent octopus).
27/40: "Bride for a Fox" (Craig Barrett): Set in the T'u Lung province
of Ausa, in and around the city of Chunming. A remarkably convoluted
adventure filled with deception and double-crosses.
33/54: "Mad Gyoji" (Colin Sullivan): OA module set in Miyama province
in Kozakura, compatible with set-up in module OA1 <Swords of the
Daimyo> and some AD&D 2nd Edition materials on Kara-Tur. Includes
glossary of "Kozakuran" (Japanese) terms, new monster (kitsune
kasumi, "mist fox"), a new item (<ema of wishes>), and a very valuable
book: the <Lexicon of Spirits>.

25/5: "Notes from HQ: News for August" (Penny Petticord, mid-1985):
Penny Petticord suggests that the RPGA Network membership
collaborate on a fantasy city project for publication (inspired by
Sanctuary, the Thieves World fantasy setting of Robert Asprin). The
city is to be placed in the WORLD OF GREYHAWK(R) setting. This "shared
