Hello All,

Sorry to keep asking these questions, but my memory from 25+ years ago ain't  :roll: what it used to be.

I have some RPGA modules numbered 5, 6, & 7, which are very short (i.e. thin) adventures, but well done. I know they are from the Polyhedron, but I do not how many there were and what issues contained modules and which ones did not. Is there a list of issues & what modules they contained? :?

In addition, I have some of the same style modules (referenced as A-1 or A-8 ) from Dragon magazines. The same question as above applies, is there a list of issues & what modules they contained? :?

Thanks for your help,

For the Polyhedron's are they the ones listed in issues 16,17 and 18?

Hi Jason,

Thanks for the insight :D , as I did not realize  :oops: that the Publications were links themselves to the majority of the Dragon & Polyhedron issues 8O . . . so I feel like quite the dope.

I will have to copy and paste this info into Excel and create a short list for myself of magazines with adventures in them and then go through my inventory & see what I have to determine what I am missing.

Do you know, or if someone else cares to point me in the right direction, where one might find a list of the adventures that Wizards is producing as sanctioned RPGA event modules. They are named after settings like Eberron with sub-headings like Mark of Heroes and then the title of the adventure. They use the d20 or 3.5 rules, I gather, as I have scanned through a few I acquired, but the base material seems pretty good at first blush and something that can be adapted to the original rules or whatever rules one uses. I could not find a list of titles on the Wizards site, so any help in how many of these there are would be helpful.

Thanks,

Well quoting Erik Mona on old events:

There's no "legal" way to get ahold of old RPGA scenarios (often referred to as "retired" scenarios, modules, or adventures). There are literally thousands of these things. Some exist in digital form at HQ, some exist only in hard copy form, and some don't exist at all (an angry employee purged the RPGA database, including adventure files, back in the 80s).

To my knowledge, no comprehensive list of all adventures ever released exists, even at HQ. If anyone has such a list, it'd be Robert Wiese, who used to run the Network.

A few fan sites have a decent list of Living City and Living Greyhawk adventures, but tracking them all down would literally be a lifetime quest.

This site from WotC should work, but isn't atm for me.

Was a DM for RPGA and remember seeing lists of addies at the time, so not sure if its possible now if you register to be a DM through there.

There was also a comprehensive Polyhedron index (through issue 112 or so) on the WotC site, which is gone; I've posted it to my site @ http://www.greyhawkonline.com/grodog/temp/polyindx.zip if anyone wants it (I'll delete it in a week or so).
