    Survivor Classic Modules: THE SINISTER SECRET OF SALTMARSH WINS!

    [h/t Zaardnar]

    This thread is inspired by the prior threads on the core classes, the core races, the core alignments, and so on. Most importantly, it's inspired by a very similar thread that was lost in the GREAT ENWORLD OUTAGE (pour out a cool one for the great comments we lost). Unlike the other survivor threads, this one really really (really?) matters. Because it looks like Wizards is taking us BACK to the FUTURE with the release of Yawning Portal ... so it would behoove us to determine, once and for all, in the MOST INDUBITABLY SCIENTIFIC MANNER POSSIBLE, the greatest classic module of all time.

    So yeah, we need to know, for 5e purposes, which of these modules is really worth it.

    That's right- every single one of us has either a) played one of these modules, b) wanted to play one of these modules, or c) told some old player to SHUT UP ALREADY about how great these modules are and how they used to walk 10 miles in the snow, both ways uphill, just so they could get TPK'd in 5 minutes in Tomb of Horrors. Now, we, the community of enworld, get to choose what classic module is really the best!

    IMPORTANT NOTE- DOWNVOTES ARE WORTH 3 IN THIS THREAD.

    REPEAT- DOWNVOTES ARE THREE IN THIS THREAD- HAVE YOU SEEN HOW LONG THIS LIST IS?

    Each module starts with 20 points and you vote for one module you like which gets 1 point and a module you dislike which loses 2 points. It is intentional that a negative vote is worth more than a positive vote- first, because we don't want to be here all year. Second, because.

    Upvotes are in green, downvotes are in in red (unless you are on your phone, and are unable to, in which case please indicate your votes some other way). Copy and paste the previous posters vote and change the numbers. You may vote once per day. This is an honor system, and we are all honorable gamers; please do not abuse it. If this means you vote once at night one day, and once the next morning - that's fine, but don't vote again until the following day.

    This is purely a popularity contest and you do not have to explain an upvote or downvote, but feel free to- explanations are where the fun is! When downvotes reach 0 the module is eliminated (FATALITY! TPK!). Finally, if a module has one vote left, then you have to make the choice to use all of your downvotes to eliminate it; there is no vote splitting.

    Some important points that you must read before voting-
    1. This is a pure popularity contest, and is meant to be fun. You can cast your votes for whatever reason you want. Spite, irrational love/hate, gameplay mechanics, strategic voting, hating paladins, and so on is perfectly acceptable. Do you hate Tomb of Horrors because old gamers won't shut up about it? Do you love Barrier Peaks because D&D needs laser guns? Do you hate the Wonderland series because, c'mon, Lewis Carroll? It's all good! This vote does not affect anything in real life, and no module will be removed, added, or converted from or to 5e because of your vote. You can comment for the reasons for your vote, or not- up to you! But this is for enjoyment only.

    2. I am using the modules as presented in wikipedia. The website is here:
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Dungeons_%26_Dragons_modules


    3. Modules that are "collections" are treated as a collection (example- the Slaver series, A1-A4).

    4. Selected BECMI modules are included. Unofficial compilation, mini adventures, Dragon articles, Dungeon articles, and other small modules are not. Nor am I including specific setting modules (Conan, Dragonlance).

    5. The cutoff date is 1983. Period. Because the list is long enough.

    As always, the list is the list, please do not alter it.



    Katana Nope. You knew it was coming. But Katana is too powerful for any module.

    Everything ends badly, otherwise it wouldn't end.


    -That's either a quote from Cocktail, or my reaction after seeing that Elven Chain won the magic armor survivor poll.
