This is a list of the classic D&D modules that I own, or at least own the ESD for. If I were to convert the lot of them into the 4th Edition rules, which ones would you be most excited about?

Now I know that this could easily be just another "what is your favorite module" poll in disguise, so I'm asking for everyone to dig deeper. Pick modules that you think are the most fun to play, but also those that you believe would put the 4E system to the test...modules that have the strangest rules, monsters, and settings.

Once the 4E rulebooks are out, the winner of this poll will be the first module that I convert to 4E. I'll post it up here for everyone to enjoy as soon as WotC and ENWorld say it is okay. ;)

Wasn't M1 "Maze of the Riddling Minotaur"?

Edit: No, that was M2; M1 was Blizard pass. At least, that's what my module says on it. Must have changed designations later.

Yup. M1: Blizzard Pass and M2: Maze of the Riddling Minotaur were the two "invisible ink" solo modules released in 1983. When the Master Set was released in 1985 TSR re-used those codes for new modules intended for use with the Master set. The Acaeum has redesignated the two invisible ink modules MSOLO1 and MSOLO2, but I don't believe that designation was ever used by TSR, and certainly never appeared on printed copies of either one.

Don't start with the campaign setting adventures, there are just too many.
I was looking for the Ghost Tower of Inverness.
I got stoned by that Medusa... twice in two different parties.

You've missed:

X10 - Red Arrow Black Shield;

which ends the Master of the Desert Nomads triology; believe me, that was really good stuff ;)

There was a lot of counters for playing a sort of wargame in the known world of Mystara... truly awesome! The first time showing the battle rules of the companion set if I remember correctly! :)

Castle Amber because I haven't seen anything done with it yet. I don't know how well a group of level 4 PC's could expect to do against so many high level NPC's, but meh :) Losing PC's is part of the thrill of that adventure. It should probably recommend a party of at least 6.

Slave Lords, because I haven't been through them but they have always been visible.

You left out a few fun series':

U1 The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh
U2 Danger at Dunwater
U3 The Final Enemy

L1 The Secret of Bone Hill
L2 The Assassins Knot
L3 Deep Dwarven Delve

C1 The Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan
C2 Ghost Tower of Inverness

You forgot about "Against the Cult of the Reptlie God." :)

I don't know what it's about, but "Dwellers of the Forbidden City" sounds really, really cool.

Given the new backstory with demons, the Abyss, and Tharizdun, "Temple of Elemental Evil" would be totally awesome.

I also voted for "Night's Dark Terror." My favorite part is the goblin attack on the village. I ran it in True20 once, making the goblin drums were an Inspire Fear effect. Hopefully 4e will be able to do something similar.

Think an overgrown Mayan city crawling with Yuan-Ti, Tasloi and Aboleths (each of which debuted with I1). Insanely cool module.

The "C" series are some of the best:
Tomoachan, Inverness, to find a king, etcetera.... those were great adventures.

then you have that stinking turd "Castle Caldwell and beyond", ugh. that was absolute dreck. That has to be one of the worst adventures ever made... on a par with the Marco Volo trilogy.

Likewise the "U" series (saltmarsh) and the L series (restenford) were really great also. I was an old-timer, but I always felt that the "U" series was far more intriguing than the GDQ series.

For brain-challenges, the "S" and "C" series were tops.

Man, it's just reruns on every channel tonight.
Has someone already started a thread about converting classic modules to the 4E system? Please point me in the right direction; I'd love to get some help/feedback on this project...the more brains the better.

In all honesty, I think the "U" series and several of the "C" adventures hold up well enough over time to exist today... (in fact, I've seen some pretty blatant homages to those adventures published by Goodman Games).

DCC3 "Mysterious Tower" = C2 ghost tower of Inverness
DCC7 "Secret of Smugglers Cove" = U1-U3 (Saltmarsh Trilogy)
DCC23 "Sunken Ziggurat" = C1 Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan


Anyone who suggests the "C" series or "U" series is not steering you wrong. Those are excellent adventures. I'd put them on a par with the Desert of Desolation trilogy for being really great adventures that I would consider still running today.

The "L" series is also pretty interesting. L1 is available as a free download on the wizards site. L2 was the first "murder mystery" adventure I'd ever seen (and it was done quite well). L3 was available in the 25th anniversary collection, and it looks like it could have used a little more polish.
