Speaking as a game master, there is no beating G1, G2 and G3 for action, power, peril and downright interesting things to do.  The number of funny stories from this series of modules is huge.  I never get tired of them.

WG4 is great for the weirdness of the temple and the classic Gygax dungeon dressing.

D3 is probably the best D&D module of all time. There's so much to do, so much room for DMs to improvise, and so many ways the story can go. I think it wraps up everything that makes D&D great.

S2 is probably the best dungeon crawl. Lots of cool rooms, interesting encounters, and traps.

With all that said, I think Temple of Elemental Evil is my personal fave.

Can someone tell me more about For Duty and Deity?

My all-time favorite adventure as a player and a DM is hands down the original Ravenloft.  I never get tired of vampires.

I have a lot of fond memories of U1, I1, N2, B2, and the GDQ series as well.  One of these days maybe I can get Badmike to run his version of I1 to see how good it is.  :wink:

I never get tired of these topics!  :)

Mine would have to be, from 1E:

C1 Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan
S4 Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth
T1-4 Temple of Elemental Evil


From 2E, my favorites would be:

Ruins of Undermountain (of course!  :wink: )
Labyrinth of Madness
City of Skulls


Overall, Ruins of Undermountain is my favorite, regardless of edition.

I really enjoyed N1.....mind you it was the first mod I ever played so that probably has something to do with it....

I also am a KOTB zealot......but next faves would definitely be I2 and S4....they are just such good battle heavy adventures...with some thinking, especially if you want to finish the adventure in less than several pieces...

I don't like playing S1....but Man is it a hoot to DM..... :twisted:  :P  :twisted:

Ah, I forgot about N1. I remember we killed most everyone at the Inn who was possessed, and we ended up buying it from the town for a pittance after we killed the naga. Became very profitable after we started a massage parlor there. I remember our main goal was to get our cleric experienced enough to cast Cure Disease so we could keep the girls clean.

This is still my goal! :twisted:  Damn 3rd level Cleric keeps running off with a 1st level Cleric (Oh, I am sooo EVIL).  :twisted:

UK2+UK3 Sentinel and Gauntlet are a tremendously overlooked pair, featuring unique magic items and unique situations/enemies.

I12 Egg is a fantastic epic adventure with many locales and 'chapters' to the story that holds up well.

A lot of E.G.G classics that are getting mention, I felt were rather overrated (T2-4, G1-2-3).   <duck and cover>

B2 is probably my favorite. I'm actually running a group through it right now and having a blast (you can read about that HERE). My other favorites include D3, T1, S4, WG4, and X1.

U1 is great.

I2 is my favorite in the I series.

My all-time favorites are X4 & X5 followed all-too closely by A-series.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

B2.  G1, G2, G3.  S4 and WG4.  A1, A2 and A3 (I'm not a huge fan of A4 in the context of being part of the "A" series - it's a fine module but seems to not fit the others well.)

The list just goes on and on for me.
