    Last Man Standing: Best D&D Modules

    Hi all! I was inspired by the post on "best cover art," and was also curious what older modules people were most fond of. So I compiled a list of modules pulled from different sites ranking their favorite modules, and want you to decide which one is the best.

    I've left off some modules (Ravenloft, Temple of Elemental Evil, Against the Giants, Underdark modules) because they've been remade in some way for 5th edition. I've tried to keep the list contained only to modules that have gone untouched by the offical WotC team.

    Keep on the Borderlands




    Dragons of Despair



    The Lost City



    Desert of Desolation





    Test of the Warlords



    The Isle of Dread




    Castle Amber



    Red Hand of Doom



    Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth



    Same rules as before, you +1 one and -2 another.

    I'll go first;

    Keep on the Borderlands - 20 - 2 = 18
    Dragons of Despair - 20 + 1 = 21
    The Lost City - 20
    Desert of Desolation - 20
    Test of the Warlords - 20
    Isle of the Dead - 20
    Castle Amber - 20
    Red Hand of Doom - 20
    Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth - 20
