Not long ago the valley was green and animals ran free through golden fields of grain. The Princess Argenta ruled over this peaceful land and the people were secure and happy. Then one day a warrior riding a white dragon appeared in the skies over the castle and almost overnight the tiny kingdom felt into ruin. Now only ruins and rumors remain, and what legends there are tell of a fabulous treasure still buried somewhere within the Palace of the Silver Princess.
The orange edition was released and recalled in a single day and very few, almost certainly less than one hundred, authentic originals exist of this version. The orange version is widely known because it was released in 2000 as a free PDF download on the Wizards of the Coast website.
The green covered versions was substantially edited and modified by Tom Moldvay and released several months after the original orange version was recalled and destroyed.
