Classic Modules Today: C2 The Ghost Tower of Inverness (5e)


In 1980, TSR published the module named “The Ghost Tower of Inverness” with the module code “C2”. It was written by Allen Hammack and illustrated by Jeff Dee, David S. "Diesel" LaForce, Jim Roslof, Erol Otus, David C. Sutherland III, and Bill Willingham.

The original 20-page module included many maps of the different levels and player handouts. It had a good mix of combat and puzzles.

In 2004, for the 30th anniversary of the Dungeons & Dragons game, Dungeon magazine ranked this module the 30th greatest adventure of all time. This conversion guide allows DMs to run the original module with 5th Edition rules and provides a reference sheet for encounters.

To use this conversion guide you will need a copy of "C2 The Ghost Tower of Inverness", originally available in hard-copy and now for sale in Digital format at

"Classic Modules Today: B4 The Lost City" contains the OpenOffice/LibreOffice source files used to create the PDF. Visit for instructions on creating your own classic module conversions and selling them on the DMs Guild.

Version 3.3 seems broken somehow:
- the paragraphs/pages are duplicated (once formatted with colors, once in b/w)
- I did not compare the other paragraphs but the Monster list is different on those duplicate pages (!) - 79 vs. 80 monsters ?!

Can you please confirm and guide which versions of the pages are the correct ones?

The final sheet, double-sided is supposed to be a 1-page reference sheet for the previous content. The idea was that you'd read through the main content, and just need the reference sheet as you go through the module.
But you're right, there were a couple of entries in the monster lists that got dropped somehow when copy/pasting. I corrected it in version 3.4
Also v3.4 updates the jewel room with a couple of minor things. Force-shield vulnerable to force damage, and tweaked the "Dispel Magic" damage.
Thanks for the feedback!

Ugh, I just want to PLAY this with my adventurers. I want it complete for 5e. I even HAVE the old module. Annoying.

As advertised, it is a conversion guide, not the complete module. All of the "Classic Modules Today" line is this way. The person who created the "Classic Modules Today" worked with WotC on what we were allowed and not allowed to put in this. No maps, no artwork, etc, just how to convert the traps, monsters, skill checks, saves, etc from 1e/2e Dungeons and Dragons to 5e mechanics and monsters. After these came out, WotC started selling PDF versions of the older modules.

Sorry you were disappointed, but that was the limit of what I could put in it.

As KofaSing K said, no maps. I don't think any of the "Classic Modules Today" items would include maps. Those are copyrighted, and I believe that would be in violation without permission.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
