Against the Cult of the Reptile God

Wizards just made N1 Against the Cult of the Reptile God available in PDF.

I have fond memories of running this game back when it first came out. On the surface it follows a familiar formula: quaint village, nefarious goings on, and nearby adventure locals. The added twist is that there is enough going on in the village itself that several adventure sessions and deadly encounters can happen right in the character's home base.

Also I really like troglodytes and nagas, they just seem really sinister and nasty making for great villains. And I also admire Timothy Trumans evocative, dark art work that set the tone for this challenging novice adventure.


  1. Yeah, picked it up, plan to run it again...this was easily one of my top five modules from back in the day.

  2. A great module! But, my favorite part of their re-release of the products has more to do with Shannon Appelcline's historical background on all of the products. Really brings back memories in some cases or fills in gaps in others!

  3. My old players used to joke with me that I had a thing about snakes, since I used to throw yuanti, giant snakes and nagas at them in nearly every campaign. The only way I could respond to that was give them the evil GM grin and say, "Yup!"...
