Description Edit | History

From the front cover:

AN ADVENTURE FOR CHARACTER LEVELS 10–14

In the far reaches of the world, under a lost and lonely hill, lies the sinister TOMB OF HORRORS. This labyrinthine crypt is
filled with terrible traps, strange and ferocious monsters, rich and magical treasures, and somewhere within rests the evil
Demi-Lich.

This module was originally used for the Official ADVANCED DUNGEONS & DRAGONS® tournament at Origins 1. The
author wishes to thank Mr. Alan Lucien who was kind enough to submit some of the ideas for this dungeon.

Included herein are background information, the Legend of the Tomb, and possible locations for the tomb on the WORLD
OF GREYHAWK™ map. Also included are DM notes, characters specially designed for the module, and numerous
illustrations to be shown to the players.

More Information Edit | History

User notes:

First adventure in the S (Special) series.

Originally written by Gary Gygax for the 1975 Origins 1 convention. In 1978, TSR published the module with a red monochrome cover for Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, First Edition.

The "killer dungeon" module tells the story of the evil wizard Acererak who became a lich and later a demi-lich which has transcended the need for a physical body other than its skull. Characters must survive deadly tomb traps and undead creatures in every corner.

A replica of this module was reprinted as part of the 1998 Return to the Tomb of Horrors box set.

Revised by Bruce Cordell it includes much of the original text, art, and maps with updated stats. Note that the map of the dungeon proper is updated and comes in two versions, keyed and unkeyed.

Tomb of Horrors was ranked the 3rd greatest Dungeons & Dragons adventure of all time by Dungeon magazine in 2004.

Anthologized in 1987 as part of S1-4: Realms of Horror (re-edited for campaign play), and again in 2013 as part of the S1-S4: Dungeons of Dread anthology.
