Isle of Dread front cover

Isle of Dread is up on DnD classics with a great read on the history of the module. Always suspected that the Isle had a bit of a Lost World feel (look, that’s a dinosaur on the cover, not a dragon) and it’s neat to hear that confirmed by Cook. This was the first module I picked up that wasn’t a dungeon proper, (the great outdoors being prominent) and I remember feeling some disorientation at this introduction to hex mapping (instead of the typical dungeon square graph paper style maps).

Also this week Jeff Dee is continuing his quest of recreating his original Dungeons & Dragons artwork that was destroyed (I wrote about this last year) including  the original Isle of Dread module cover. Rewards include a full poster sized print of it (now that would look snazzy in the home office) along with a few other color pieces.
