Official synopsis[]

Trapped in the dungeons of the Slave Lords!

The hardy adventurers must find a way out, with only their wits and courage to help them. But can they do it before everything is destroyed by the dreaded Earth Dragon?

This module was originally used for the final round of the official Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Tournament at Gen Con XIII and is the culmination of four related tournament modules.

This module contains a challenging scenario, the tournament scoring system, plus nine pre-rolled, playtested tournament characters. Also included are large scale referee's maps, notes, and background information.

A4 is a complete adventure in itself, but it is also a companion to A1 (Slave Pits of the Undercity), A2 (Secret of the Slavers' Stockade), and A3 (Assault on the Aerie of the Slave Lords). An adventure for character levels 4-7.
