I don't imagine there are many modules focusing or directly involving dwarfs, except things like Axe of the Dwarfish Lords, and of them, most are probably non-TSR modules... so, here's an attempt to get the best of the best. I'm hankering to play something I've never done, an all-module campaign, but steadfast in theme... I'd probably have to say the R series is "dwarf focused" but I don't own all of them, and the likelihood I ever will is pretty slim (still trying!), but I don't mind if they get mentioned. I also don't mind a few spoilers, to get me interested in it.


Those who can, don't. Those who should not, do.

Didn't the Complete Dungeon Master Series start off with dwarves?

This week I've been mostly eating . . . The white ones with the little red flecks in them.

These two don't necessarily focus on dwarves but are associated with dwarves in some manner:

The Halls of Beoll-Dur - Dragon Magazine #41, I believe this was once a dwarven stronghold.
Dragon Mountain - Set in a dwarven underground citadel/city.

If I think of some more, I'll add.

Dwarves by Role Aids.

And no, it does not suck like many other RA products. I think Dwarves is the best of the RA products. You get a couple cities and three lengthy adventures which tend to be very dungeon crawlish, but they can be loads of fun.

Lots of dwarf background. Did I mention the cities. Nicely done and good maps.

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

I agree on this one.  It was the first book in the squarebound format.  They only did a few really useful books, and this is one of them.

Moria, for MERP, would seem an obvious choice, at least for maps/detail.

If I remember correctly, Mines Of Keridav takes place in a mine, and may be about rescuing dwarves.

Azadmere, for Harn, is, in typical Harn fashion, excellent.  Again, more setting than adventure though.

The Doomstones series for WFRP, based on the CDM series, is again set in dwarven locations and about dwarves, but isn't intended to be played by a dwarven party.

Dwarfs: Stone And Steel, also for WFRP, is possibly the best dwarven sourcebook I have, but it's more setting, and both hard to find and expensive.

There are other WFRP dwarf books, but they aren't as good (unless one is slipping my mind).

That's pretty much what I can think of in my collection... can't really think of much meant to be played by a dwarven group.
