Alto Unlimited AD&D Modules Alto Unlimited Tale of the Ruby Dragon (VG+/NM)

A completely unauthorized foray into the Forgotten Realms which boldly proclaims on its cover "This module has not been approved by TSR - YET!". Despite the failings of its prophecy, it promises an engaging and action-packed story opportunity for 4-6 characters of levels 1-5. What it delivers is a warped and excessively murderous romp through the wilderness to an equally overblown temple full of more secret doors than any location has any right to have.

A 12th level Druid tooling around the forest in the hut of the Baba Yaga. A god's avatar that has AC -6 (in a 1st level adventure!) A location called the "Boring Beetle's Lair." A final battle with a narcissistic, two-headed, polygamous Rakshasa. And that's just the highlights of this campy and overblown pen and paper death-machine.

It is a wonderful addition to a serious collection, and a great read for anyone who wants to feel their jaw drop reading an heinously unbalanced smash-up dungeon that somehow saw
