Honestly, I never played most of these. I just came here to downvote Keep on the Borderlands.

WTF even is The Lost City? I've never heard of that one, and it might have the blandest, least-trademarkable, least-googlable adventure name possible.

When I started getting back into old school D&D, The Lost City was the first dungeon module I ran. I dragged my 4E loving friends kicking and screaming into this dungeon, B/X style. Now, we're playing more old school than modern.

Lost City is module code B4, written for the Basic / Expert set. Its a pretty sweet dungeon with some very cool factions and an open-ended underworld. It also features the all powerful Zargon!

Easy choice for me, for the time being: vote down the only one I'm not familiar with. :)

The Lost City - 26 - it's name is generic because it was first
Desert of Desolation - 24
Isle of Dread - 27
Castle Amber - 24
Red Hand of Doom - 19
Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth - 11

Many on this list where the first adventures of their kind. The Lost City was the first lost city adventure, Isle of Dread was the first "explore a new land" adventure, Test of the Warlords was the first "build a kingdom" adventure, Castle Amber was the first officially based on a novel series, Desert of Desolation was the first novelistic plot driven adventure.
