Walkthrough Map: White Plume Mountain

The premium edition reprint of Dungeons of Dread has released! And in great celebration of the S series of adventures (not to mention today's holiday), we'd like to offer the following cartoon—considering White Plume Mountain!

As Lawrence Schick writes in his foreword: "Module S2, my own White Plume Mountain, wasn’t written to be published. I wrote it as a submission to persuade Gary that he ought to hire me as an RPG designer. Mission accomplished: Gary offered me a job..."

White Plume Mountain

        The letter T!
      oday, the once-feared name of Keraptis is little known even to learned scholars. Little-known, that is, until several weeks ago, when three highly-valued magical weapons with the cryptic names of Wave, Whelm and Blackrazor disappeared from the vaults of their owners in the midst of the city of Greyhawk.

Rewards were posted, servants hanged, even the sanctuary of the Thieves’ Guild was violated in the frantic search for the priceless arms, but not even a single clue was turned up until the weapons’ former owners (all wealthy collectors) each received a copy of the following note:

Search ye far or search ye nearYou’ll find no trace of the threeUnless you follow instructions clearFor the weapons abide with me.

Join the fighter, magic-user, cleric, other fighter, fighter/magic-user, thief, and bard—as they explore the three passages of White Plume Mountain.
