Brigands of Mirkwood is an adventure module released for ICEs Middle Earth Role Playing Game (MERP).
Containing three adventures that could be played singly or as a campaign in succession, this was typical of many MERP adventure modules in that it provided a great deal of detail.
Brigands of Mirkwood includes full color maps on the inside of the covers. It includes three adventures, but also has a section on suggested adventures, which includes a host of adventure ideas.
Brigands of Mirkwood has a very detailed description of its key setting: Strayhold, including places, personalities and atmosphere.
The three adventures of this module were designed to be played by different levels of characters, a pattern ICE followed with a majority of their adventure Modules for the MERP system. The first adventure was for low level characters, while the third was for higher level characters.
The adventures were:
Excursion to the City of Strays.
Raid on the Clanhall of Rogues.
& The Castle of Leardinoth.
