Another classic. B3 has had a storied history, but the module we all actually played has a special place in many gamer's hearts. For starters it is a Basic module, and lot of material in it is aimed at new DMs working on their craft. While the programmed text of rooms 1 to 6 might look quaint by today's standards, there is a lot of good things here. For starters the basic premise of the module is a fun one. An Evil artifact, an innocent princess, a dashing rogue on a white dragon. Lots of the cliches of fantasy gaming, but all are played earnestly and not a hint of irony is here.

The module itself is not without issues as mentioned. The map of the castle is enough to drive a sane mapper crazy and some of the NPCs (like the green elf "Protectors") are annoying. But all that fades when you discover the Eye of Arik and destroy it. I recently re-ran this one for my kids using the D&D 3.5 edition rules. Worked great.

If you are new to the Basic D&D game (B/X flavor) then this is a great adventure to get.
