Making a terrible mistake, I started with "The Ruins of Andril," an old Dragon magazine centerfold module. It was too high-level, and pretty dull, actually. We never finished it. I eventually want to start them on a campaign, but this tournament module was a great warm-up.

Their solution to the giant rolling ball was novel. The chess room really had them stumped; because of the multi-colored tiles, they never figured out the proper moves. My brother was thinking it was some mathematical formula As they entered the upper transdimensional levels, the dangers increased.
The Fire Giant was perhaps their greatest foe. Being an intelligent monster, he targeted the magic-user, with devastating effect. In fact, though, their only death happened at the very end, in recovering the Soul Gem.
Outstanding module! Fun to play and ref. It took the players three sessions to finish, and now they want more. You swam for your life to this mysterious island, losing most of your provisions in the process, only to find it barren of all but grass. A biting wind from the north drives through your wet clothes, chilling you to the bone.
Night is falling and promises even colder temperatures; you wish this place had even a bush to burn as firewood. Your stomach has just begun to complain about the lack of dinner, when one of your companions calls, and you rush to his side, hoping he's found a way to turn grass into a sandwich. Instead, he points to the ground in front of him, "Look there. Gygax was a master of balancing out the elements of the greater scope with the campaign world of Greyhawk.
The players and DM created from whole cloth what was and in some respects is needed. Trust me for better or worse they will!

Please log in to add or reply to comments. Not exactly what I wanted but the customer service was very good and timely. I will certainly continue as a customer. Accidents happen, that's life. Same issue with me I trust they will make this right and send me the combined like I ordered or send me D2 Shrine of the Kuo-toa as well. We'll see if they make it right. The product listing is incorrect; or at least what I received was not what is listed.
What I received with the print on demand softcover option was a copy of D1 Descent into the Depths of the Earth, the monochrome edition. Not D Descent into the Depths of the Earth, the color cover edition.

Personally I don't mind this at all, but the listing should be changed to reflect the difference if that is the case. Same issue here. Looks like they've removed the PoD version so hopefully they will fix it. Heck, didn't even realize that I should have gotten D until I looked at my order. I don't really mind; I got D because D1 wasn't available.
Just to update this - they fixed the issue and sent me the correct D module in print. Looks good! It now includes the original D1 as a separate file the original release containing only Descent into the Depths of the Earth, but not Shrine of the Kuo-Toa before they were compiled together. Originally it only came with D as advertised. Scan appears to be the same as before. Jacob A. This is a great romp through the Underdark.
