I11 - Needle get's atrocious reveiws, though Iv'e never read or used it. It's available free on the WotC website. WG12 Puppets's gets similar reviews.

Of the mods I have actually owned:

It's difficult to say because when I was 10 I rarely was that critical--rose tinted glasses and all that. If I thought something was wrong, I just changed it. I didn't complain that is was a bad module.

Maybe X3--Curse of Xanathon. The story was a bit lame.
X9 is a rather borning module as is, but can be interesting if you apply the material well.

What was the module number of the Forest Oracle?

Hee hee!

Moderator's Notes:
Just in case there's any confusion, our understanding is that folks are allowed to quote passages from copyrighted material for review purposes. That appears to be what Quasqueton is doing in this case, so his excerpts from this module are copacetic. (Keep in mind, naturally, that if a substantial portion of the module appears here, things start to get hinky).
[/Moderator's Notes]

This is pretty hilarious!

I was about to post another encounter, but I'll leave my "review" as it is so far. The whole text is 30 pages long, so I'm nowhere near giving a sizeable part of it, but no need to push it.

Whoa! You can buy this adventure as a PDF from Rpgnow.com for $4.95! I may just skip out on beer tonight and pick it up for the sheerheckofit.

Of course, once I do, I'll probably wish I had the beer just to read through it.

I have a solution: Let's write our own encounters!

14. The Winter Wolf. As the party enters the clearing, they see a pile of apples. Read the description below:

There is a pile of 12 or 13 or 19 apples in the center of the clearing. They look as if they have been here for more that two days but less than four days. None of the apples show signs of being eaten. All of the apples are red. One apple has bites taken out of it. In the clearing you hear the singing of birds, but the birds are not running or joking loudly.

The apples have no secret compartments. As the party approaches the apples, they hear a howl. A local winter wolf (AC 5; MV 18"; HD 5+1; hp 27 each; #AT 1; Dmg 1-8 [bite]; SA Surprise on 1-4, cold breath; SD immune to cold) has been collecting all the apples in the forest in order to lure prey to the clearing. If anyone takes an apple or gets too close or avoids the apples, the wolf leaps out of the pile and attacks. Roll 1d6 to determine surprise: 1-2: the party is surprised, 3-3, nobody is surprised, 3-5 the party is surprised, 6 the apples are surprised. The wolf once drank a potion of sleep, but is awake now because it is not near a pavilion. It will attempt to use its cold breath on anyone near the apples, or anyone not near the apples. After two rounds of combat wererats (AC 6; MV 12"; HD 3+1; hp 16 each; #AT 1; Dmg 1-8 [sword]; SA Surprise on 1-4; SD Hit only by silver or +1 or better magic weapons) will leap out of the secret door. Roll 1d6 for the sleep spells target.

After the party kills the wolf, they can take the apples and the golden statue of the dragon as well.
