Publisher's Summary

A remorseless ranger. A sentient hell hound pelt with a penchant for pyromania. An irksome pixie who sells intrigue and information.
Three companions who find themselves trapped in a city filled with warring priestly factions, devious machinations, and an angry fiend. To save the city, they must find three weapons of power, which lie in the most trap-laden, monster-infested place this side of Acererak's tomb: White Plume Mountain.

A trip down memory lane...with monsters.

This was the first module that I ever bought, and I did so right when it came out. TSR was just starting to put them out there and I still remember reading through this dungeon and thinking, "We are doing it all wrong. This is AMAZING!"

When I saw a book based on that adventure, I was almost scared to give it a go. I quit playing years ago and one of my fond memories from childhood were the campaigns using SI & S2 (but not in that order since S1 was for VERY high level parties), as well as the G and D series (How long did we wait for "Queen of the Demonweb Pits"?)

This story was fantastic. I was a little bummed at some of the stuff that did not get mentioned. Chasing a demon through the dungeon sort of ruined a few of the encounters. But I still felt like I was witnessing the game being played. It brought back my own recollections, and there were even a few moments where I slapped my forehead and thought, "Why didn't we think of that?"

As for the two main characters, they gave me enough to care about, but the "hirelings" seemed like cardboard cut outs of stereotypical bad guys (yeah...even a Paladin is a "bad" guy here) and I found that to be just a little lame. I get that the desire was for the Ranger and the Faerie to dominate the scene, but to make everybody else an antagonist got tiring. I will venture forth at least one more time. I am somewhat perplexed by the order of the books in this series as well as disappointed that the D Series mods get the treatment but the G series (my personal favorite) seems to have been left out.

Plays on classic D&D tropes well

What did you like best about this story?

I enjoyed most how it made fun of some of the classic 2E tropes. 10 foot poles. Analyzing each and every door. Spiking doors after they been opened. If any of these things seem familiar to you, you'll enjoy the books take IMO.
