The Gauntlet (module)


The Gauntlet (module)

] is an adventure module for the "Dungeons & Dragons" fantasy roleplaying game, set in the game's "World of Greyhawk" campaign setting. The 32-page book bears the code UK3 and was published by TSR, Inc. in 1984 for the first edition "Advanced Dungeons & Dragons" rules. The adventure is the second of two modules in the "Adlerweg" series, the sequel to UK2 - "The Sentinel".

Receiving 8 out of 10, the module received a fairly positive review in Issue 60 of White Dwarf magazine. It was felt to be more restricted in scope and more of a standard hack-and-slash adventure than its imaginative predecessor. Some encounters were found to be quite deadly and not avoidable by good gameplay. The reviewer also found its linear play and directedness quite frustrating. [cite journal

Cover text

"Indomitable it stood for centuries, a symbol of order in a world of chaos. Bastion of the pass through the Kamph Mountains, the very stones of the Keep of Adlerweg were the stuff of legends. What evil power had strength enough to take it? How were its defenses swept aside?

"Fell creatures now attend the battlements that overlook the only pass between Berghof and the sea.

"This is not a petty problem to be solved by the militia of the local villages. These and more may be needed to withstand the mayhem stirred up by the fall of the Keep. Indeed, if the Keep is not retaken, and retaken soon, the Hold of the Sea Princess itself may not be secure.

"Now is the time for heroic action. Aided by the Sentinel, former protector of the legendary Guardians of Adlerweg, have you the courage and determination to rid the Keep of its sinister occupants?"
