The Investigation of Hydell (R-2), softback adventure for AD&D 1st edition, by Frank Mentzer
“Slinks are clean, well cared for, happy, obedient semi-humans. Why are they content to be slaves? They are protected by law, owned by many a wealthy merchant, and even have church approval. So why is high cleric MacKurian suspicious Can you sneak into the old ruin and find out what slinks really are, and where they’re coming from?
This is the second of the RPGA series of AD&D modules. Each RPGA module has been used at an official Gen Con tournament, and has been designed to provide maximum entertainment. The Investigation of Hydell is usable in campaign or tournament play, and may be scored by points or using the RPGA tournament system. This adventure is designed for a balanced party of 5-8 characters of levels 5-7, and 5 tournament characters are provided, along with general and detail maps, scenario and character background information, and detailed encounter descriptions for the DM.”
Ultra-rare module from 1982 produced exclusively for members of the Role-Playing Game Association. Based on an adventure run at GenCon. According to Frank Mentzer, 2,500 copies were printed, but only about 250 to 500 of each R-series module were sold – and this one was the worst seller – the rest being pulped.
The cover of the SPECIAL condition copy has been covered in clear plastic. The booklet inside is in VERY GOOD condition.
The GOOD condition has some pencil annotation and staple rust, and pages 13 to 20 have detached from the staples.
