[AD&D] Ed Stark's "The Displaced" Adventure

Postby Havard » Thu Mar 02, 2017 12:25 pm

This adventure from the Adventurer's Guild Series is described as linked to Return to the Keep on the Borderlands. From what I understand many of these modules were prelude type mini adventures. Does anyone have this module?

Since Return to the Keep on the Borderlands is believed to have been originally written for AD&D Mystara and then quickly retconned into Greyhawk, does The Displaced include any specific reference to either setting?

Edit: Found a bit more at NobleKnight.com:
Evil has returned to the keep on the borderlands and it's up to the player characters to put a stop to it. This module serves as a prelude to the Return to the Keep on the Borderlands adventure.

Did this come out at the same time as that Greyhawk Adventures novel?

That had a story element, at the start of the novel, where there was an altercation on the road to the Keep on the Borderlands. I wonder if The Displaced used a similar plotline (to lead into Return to the Keep on the Borderlands).
