Get a free D&D adventure based on a classic dungeon crawl on DND Beyond

Wizards of the Coast’s upcoming D&D book Quests from the Infinite Staircase will remix six old school adventures from the days of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 1st Edition, including Expedition to the Barrier Peaks and The Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth. The latter is also being made available in an abbreviated form called Descent into the Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth, and you can currently claim it for free on DND Beyond.

First published in 1982, The Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth began life as a tournament module run by D&D co-creator Gary Gygax six years prior. A competitive one-shot explicitly designed to kill the characters players brought with them to convention games, it remained unforgiving even in its modified, published form. A lovely document of this is Jason Thompson’s comic-style walkthrough map of the module, which has one of the party members crushed to death by rocks before even making it to the dungeon—a common occurrence back in the day.
