Module WGRX "Ivid the Undying" by Carl Sargent.  Never released to the public, this module was supposedly on the verge of publication when the project was yanked.  The text of the module was released by Wizards of the Coast and is freely distributable.  This particular version has been extensively edited and re-formatted by William Allman, where he has painstakingly created a well-laid-out .pdf (Adobe Acrobat) file from the original text.  The result is quite close to what the finished module may have looked like -- it even incorporates the maps into the module text, and features the planned cover art! 
Module WGRX Composite Map "Ivid the Undying" composite map, pieced together by Kent Matthewson.  Combines the maps into one master image, which is indispensable in running the adventure
