G2 Squared: Homemade D&D Module From 1981

Labels: , ,

A homemade D&D module from 1981 called G2 Squared: Habitition of the Stone Giant Lord is available for free download at PlaGMaDA. It's typewritten, illustrated, has hand-drawn maps on graph paper, and full of typos (like the one in the module title). It's also full of gonzo fun stuff like a kitchen full of female giants who defend themselves by throwing (giant) kitchen utensils and an introduction that includes this line: "If the adventurers return without sufficient evidence of kills they may be hanged or otherwise executed..." There's also the advice to "Trust no one!" (Years before the publication of Paranoia, but keeping your laser handy would be helpful too -- if you only had one). BTW, the designer was 14 at the time.

Go download this amateur gem now either by viewing the scanned pages at PlaGMaDA or by downloading a PDF version here.

Edit: As noted in a comment below, this PDF was created by mwschmeer at his Rended Press blog. A CBZ version is also available there.

How about a little credit for my blog, where I posted the PDF file? Could you direct folks to web page rather than directly to the file in my Dropbox?

@mwschmeer,

My apologies. However, it would be hard to credit your blog entry when I never saw it. I found the link to the PDF version in a post on a forum -- no mention of your blog entry.

@Randall: Which forum? I posted a blurbs on Dragonsfoot, the S&W forum, ODD74proboards, the Goblinoid Games forums, and Knights & Knaves that all linked to my post rather than the file.

Of course, I'm glad news is spreading!

It was one of the general RPG/D&D forums I quickly check every morning: RPGnet, theRPGsite, enworld, giantitp, or piazza. Most likely one of the first three.
