Adventurer's Guild Modules (1998-2000)

Postby Havard » Thu Mar 02, 2017 12:10 pm

Big Mac mentioned The Adventurer's Guild in a thread in the Council of Wyrm's forum. Since I had not heard of that before, I did some quick research and came up with the following:

These were a series of modules released to retailers between Jan 1998 and Apr 2000. Over eighty(!) modules were eventually printed. Most of the adventures supported AD&D 2nd Edition, but there were both the SAGA and Alternity systems were also supported. These new adventures were only available to retailers. Some of them did appear in later products such as TSR Jam 1999.

Overview at The Acaeum.

Has anyone played any of the Adventurer's Guild modules?

I could be wrong but IIRC the Adventurer's Guild Modules, were the RPGA Raven's Bluff the Living City line.

And I guess the decided to do a bit of plane hoping with them.

From my impression when reading through the index linked above it seems that Raven's Bluff/Living City were part of the Adventurer's Guild series, but it included material for other settings and game lines both before and after the Living City ones...

It actually lists them all, on the AG Index page:
  • Series 1: 6 adventures: (Birthright, Forgotten Realms, Planescape, generic?, Jakandor, Dragonlance),
  • Series 2: 6 adventures: (Forgotten Realms, Greyhawk, Planescape, generic?, Dragonlance, Alternity),
  • Series 3: 6 adventures + 6 Living City Tournaments: (Forgotten Realms, Greyhawk, Ravenloft, Ravenloft/Greyhawk, Marvel Super Heroes, Alternity: Star Drive),
  • Series 4: 6 adventures + 6 Living City Adventures: (Forgotten Realms, Greyhawk, Ravenloft, Dragonlance, Marvel Super Heroes, Alternity Star Drive),
  • Series 5: 6 adventures + 6 Living City at War adventures: (Dragonlance, Forgotten Realms, Greyhawk, Ravenloft, Marvel Super Heroes, Alternity),
  • Series 6: 6 adventures + 3 Living City: Troubador's Reprise parts and 3 Living City: Just Lookin' parts: (Dragonlance, Forgotten Realms, Greyhawk, Ravenloft, generic?, Alternity),
  • Series 7: 6 adventures: (Forgotten Realms, Greyhawk, Ravenloft, Council of Wyrms, Marvel Super Heroes, Alternity Star Drive),
  • Series 8: 5 adventures: (Forgotten Realms, Greyhawk, Ravenloft, generic?, Alternity Dark Matter) and
  • Series 9: 1 adventure: (Alternity Star Drive)
  • Series 10: 1 adventure: (Dragonlance)
  • Series 11: 1 adventure: (Diablo II)
  • Series 12: 1 adventure: (Greyhawk)

Looking at the product line overall, we have:
  • 24 Living City adventures,
  • 8 1/2 Greyhawk adventures*,
  • 8 Forgotten Realms adventures,
  • 8 Alternity adventures (including Star Drive and Dark Matter),
  • 6 1/2 Ravenloft adventures*,
  • 6 Dragonlance adventures,
  • 4 Marvel Super Heroes adventures,
  • 4 generic adventures (and I'm not convinced they are all generic, as the Council of Wyrms and Jakandor adventures were listed as generic),
  • 2 Planescape adventures,
  • 1 Birthright adventure,
  • 1 Council of Wyrms adventure,
  • 1 Jakandor adventure and
  • 1 Diablo II adventure.

* = This includes one Greyhawk/Ravenloft crossover adventure.

Interestingly, the first two Living City Tournament products seem to have their titles in Comic Sans! So we could potentially have a Forgotten Realms subforum with a Comic Sans logo, at The Piazza at some point in the future! :twisted:
