N1 Against the Cult of the Reptile God by Douglas Niles
N2 Forest Oracle
by Carl Smith
N3 Destiny of Kings
by Stephen Bourne
N4 Treasure Hunt
by Aaron Allston
N5 Under Illefarn
by Steve Perrin

N1 Against the Cult of the Reptile God has an error on one of the maps (present in both printings, and never corrected): there's no exit from the maze near the troglodytes!  (Thanks to Byron Odwazny for this info).

N2 Forest Oracle has a typo on page 16: on the bottom map of the Wildwood Inn, there is no room 5 and no secret door as mentioned on page 7 (rooms) and 8 (middle column line 5).  Unknown if this was ever corrected in a subsequent print.  Thanks to Tim Deschaines for this info.

N3 Destiny of Kings has a typo on the module booklet cover: it states that the adventure is for 5-10 characters levels 4-8, when in fact, the module is for 5-8 characters of levels 1-4.  Thanks to Christian Jacques for this info).
 


Printing Information

Only N1 has any distinguishable printings.
 
N1 Against the Cult of the Reptile God

  • There are two printings of this module, which differ solely on the shade of color on the cover.  As such, we've decided not to arbitrarily label one as earlier than the other, since we have no idea!  It does appear, however, that the lighter-shaded version is somewhat less common than the darker-shaded one.  (Thanks to Jan Thordsen and Domenic Giordano for this info, and to Domenic Giordano for the scans).
