You took the words right out of my mouth.

Kind of neat to see that though.

I love how this is "Dungeon Module G2-squared" and the author added his own copyright notice.

I wonder how old he was.

Hey, I remember this one, lol! By 1979 I was playing C&S, which I found to be a richer and deeper game. Chivalry and Sorcery ftw!! Still dipped back into D&D every so often, but I had all of my friends hooked on C&S by '81 =p. Long live Fantasy Games Unlimited, and the awesome red book!!

Looks like it could be made into a nice FRUA module.

It's a shame that so few people making games these days have ever seen anything like this. Or played a real RPG, for that matter.

Maybe for them it's just "childish" ? Business men are above that, cynically speaking.
Meanwhile investment bankers "play" around with stocks.

Errrr, is there a poll out there showing how many RPG devs have played AD&D at some time?

I remember there was a City of Heroes contest linked to one of the conventions where the winners got to play AD&D for a night with the lead developer as DM.

I've read that a lot of the lore for TES came out of a tabletop campaign played by the devs.
