    TSR [Let's Read] Polyhedron/Dungeon

    Dungeon Issue 5: May/Jun 1987 part 5/5 Hirward's Task: After all these little adventures, it's a relief that they still include one 20 pager designed to take multiple sessions. As the cover showed, an out of control air elemental has driven a wizard out of his home. He hires the PC's in a...

    TSR [Let's Read] Polyhedron/Dungeon

    Dungeon Issue 5: May/Jun 1987 part 4/5 The Trouble with Mylvin Wimbly: The somewhat comedic trickery continues to build, with another very different take on the idea. The PC's wake up to find someone's stolen the wizard's spellbook in the night. In the process of trying to follow the...

    TSR [Let's Read] Polyhedron/Dungeon

    Dungeon Issue 5: May/Jun 1987 part 3/5 The Stolen Power: Our third adventure also has a sense of humour about itself, albeit of a very different kind. The clerics of the local god(s) of love have noticed stuff being stolen from their churches recently. Now it's escalated to nabbing a major...

    TSR [Let's Read] Polyhedron/Dungeon

    Dungeon Issue 5: May/Jun 1987 part 2/5 The Rotting Willow: Fresh from the ultra-whimsy of last issue, they still have some regular grade whimsy to give us. A small village plagued by trickster fae. But not the nice sort, the sort that don't care if their pranks are fatal or not, turning...

    TSR [Let's Read] Polyhedron/Dungeon

    Dungeon Issue 5: May/Jun 1987 part 1/5 66 pages. A wizard, his apprentices and a kobold face the wrath of an air elemental. He obviously didn't secure his books well enough. Never summon anything you can't control is one of the first rules you should have drilled into you. Let's hope the...

    TSR [Let's Read] Polyhedron/Dungeon

    Polyhedron Issue 36: May/Jun 1987 part 5/5 The Critical Hit: Errol turns his eye back to D&D, and does a review of Oriental Adventures. Like the majority of reviewers, he's pretty positive about it in general. It provides an absolute ton of new options in a well-presented package. His two...

    Polyhedron Issue 36: May/Jun 1987 part 4/5 On the road to The Living City: After dealing with two different types of trickery on their journey already, the players would be quite justified in being suspicious of the next encounter. So they take delight in subverting our expectations with a...

    Polyhedron Issue 36: May/Jun 1987 part 3/5 Arcane Academe: Jeff decides to do a pivot from DM advice to player, and do a themed series covering all the classes over several issues. First up, Clerics & Druids. The result turns out very similar to the old Spelling Bees where they gave you...

    TSR [Let's Read] Polyhedron/Dungeon

    Polyhedron Issue 36: May/Jun 1987 part 2/5 Letters: Our first letter is a rather long one complaining about how tournament-centric the RPGA is. There's so much more you could do for the gaming community. They could, but it'd involve a lot of unpaid volunteer work. Wanna step up? David...

    TSR [Let's Read] Polyhedron/Dungeon

    Polyhedron Issue 36: May/Jun 1987 part 1/5 36 pages. A surprisingly early instance of anime inspired art, as these shrine maidens have more in common with El-Hazard or Urusei Yatsura than real world Japan or Finland. I guess Oriental Adventures has been selling briskly for over a year now...

    TSR [Let's Read] Polyhedron/Dungeon

    Dungeon Issue 4: Mar/Apr 1987 part 5/5 Trouble at Grog's: As they said in the letters page, they're finishing up with an adventure that's has a plot, but is actually primarily a bit of worldbuilding to drop into your game. A Half-Ogre has moved into a small town and set up a tavern. This...

    Dungeon Issue 4: Mar/Apr 1987 part 4/5 Fluffy goes to Heck: Polyhedron may have been too distracted this year for comedy, but it looks like Dungeon won't escape the april fools shenanigans. Rick Reid, who appears to have based his whole roleplaying career on gag articles and adventures...

    TSR [Let's Read] Polyhedron/Dungeon

    Dungeon Issue 4: Mar/Apr 1987 part 3/5 Escape from the Tower of Midnight: Ah, now here's something completely different. An all-thief adventure where obviously, sneaking and social skills are paramount. The player's guild is subject to a hostile takeover, they're captured and scheduled to...

    Dungeon Issue 4: Mar/Apr 1987 part 2/5 Kingdom In The Swamp: Another vampire count? (A count by any other title still counts, and should be counted in the census. Ah ah ah!) We only had one 3 issues ago. Couldn't you save those for the october issues? They're the kind of thing that works...

    TSR [Let's Read] Polyhedron/Dungeon

    Dungeon Issue 4: Mar/Apr 1987 part 1/5 68 pages. That's a curiously doughy looking cover image. I wonder what techniques the artist used to get it simultaneously cartoony and exaggerated, but also three-dimensional looking. All in the light and shading, I guess. Let's see if this issue is...

    Polyhedron Issue 35: Mar/Apr 1987 part 5/5 The Critical Hit: Ghostbusters! There's a franchise that proved surprisingly long-lived and resilient, largely due to the strength of the spin-offs. (until Slimer became increasingly dominant and ruined everything) Along with the cartoon and toy...

    Polyhedron Issue 35: Mar/Apr 1987 part 4/5 The Undead Bole: They follow straight on with round 5, so they're filling a full 17 pages with this adventure, more than half the issue. Having long since given up on maintaining consistency of naming in their NPC's, they now decide to blatantly...

    Polyhedron Issue 35: Mar/Apr 1987 part 3/5 And All The King's Men: Our Finnish tournament modules take a turn for the increasingly railroady, expecting the players to stand by dumbfounded while political machinations and assassinations happen, and then follow the mission given to them...

    Polyhedron Issue 35: Mar/Apr 1987 part 1/5 31 pages. A static shot of a party of adventurers standing and posing for the camera? This doesn't suggest any particular exciting plotline. Oh well, at least they're not all going raar, like they will be in the early 2000's. Let's see what their...
