D&D General Your Favorite Adventure - Pre-Poll Query

Stormonu

Legend
As spurred by the "Storm King's Thunder" thread, I'd like to get a running list of the modules people feel that, by edition are classics. After a couple days entries, we should have enough candidates for a poll or two, probably by edition.

I'll start things out with my list of "classics"

---B/X, BECMI---
B2 - Keep on the Borderlands
B3 - Palace of the Silver Princess
B4 - The Lost City
B10 - Night's Dark Terror
X1 - Isle of Dread
X2 - Castle Amber

---1E---
A1-A4 - Against the Slavelords
I3 - Pharaoh
I6 - Ravenloft
L1-L3 Lendore Isle series
N1 - Cult of the Reptile God
S1 - Tomb of Horrors
S2 - White Plume Mountain
S4 - Expedition to the Barrier Peaks
T1-T4 Temple of Elemental Evil
U1-U3 - Saltmarsh series
DL1-DL14 Dragonlance

---2E---
Labyrinth of Madness
Ruins of Undermountain
The Mud Sorcerer's Tomb

---3E---
The Sunless Citadel
Forge of Fury
Shackled City
Age of Wyrms
Red Hand of Doom

In 3.5, there were a few Eberron adventures, though the only ones I was trying to run (but never had a chance to finish) was the Victor St. Demain trilogy from Dungeon magazine, where the villain was something of a Moriarty analogue.

I played 4e for six years but man if I can't remember the names of the official WotC adventures.

There are of course a ton of Pathfinder adventure paths (and adventure paths by other companies, including two I wrote), but that list could get very long.

Initial list isn't bad (though there's a few on there I consider to be a bit less than classic). I'd add:

A1 Slave Pits
A2 Slavers' Stockade (but not A3 or A4)
B7 Rahasia
C2 Ghost Tower of Inverness
G1-G3 Against the Giants series (all of 'em)
I2 Tomb of the Lizard King
L1 Secret of Bone Hill
S4 Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth
WG4 Forgotten Temple of Tharizdun
Dark Tower (Judges Guild)
Maltese Clue (Judges Guild)

Keep on the Shadowfell, Marauders of the Dune Sea, and Madness at Gardmore Abbey are three I own. The fisrt two aren't that great as written but with a bit of massaging can be made quite decent. I've never run Gardmore Abbey so can't speak to that one.

Have you considered listing some adventures for more than one edition? What if I didn't like 3.0 "Forge of Fury" but I do like 5e Forge of Fury" (or vice versa)?

Keep in mind this thread was 7 months old - so interest in it has waned. That said, it's the second thread re: adventures to be necro'd just now so maybe it'll garner some interest.

I did not notice, I guess that I should have checked the date when it came us as a "Similar Thread" to a new thread. Never mind.

I6 Ravenloft
N2 ... HA! Just kidding. N1, Cult.
S1-S4 All of them.
T1 on it own. Or all of Elemental Evil.
U1 on its own. Or all of U1-3.
X1, 2, 4, 5. Expert series had a great run.

and ...
WG4- Classic Tharizdun!

For 3e…
Age of Worms is continually recognized as excellent. The Savage Tide and Shackled City are both excellent too.
Also for 3e Shadowdale is a great adventure book.
City of the Spider Queen was well regarded.

Pathfinder is 3e to all intents and purposes in which case you have to include Rise of the Runelords, Curse of the Crimson Throne and Kingmaker.

My favorite module for 2e was Doom of Daggerdale a beautiful starting adventure. Very well written.

The Night Below is amazing as a 2e campaign.
