  1. Great summary of what ifs! I think I concur with all of your assessments. Including that RttToEE is an abomination. 🙂

  2. Another great video Mr. Bloch, especially the outtake at the end.

    Your comment about the Slavers module makes me wonder something-why did the volcano in A4 explode in the first place? Did the PCs even have anything to do with it? This almost makes anything they do in the previous three modules irrelevant, even if they manage to defeat many of the Slave Lords in A3. There’s no opportunity to rescue most of the slaves or otherwise dismantle the majority of the organization.

    I may be opening a can of worms here, but why do you hate the ToEE module? It’s a Gygax and Mentzer original, and it’s in the proud Gygax tradition of having a lot more potential story and depth than there appears at first glance.

    1. There’s a throwaway line in A4 that one of the slave lords *thinks* the volcano is erupting because of the PCs, but that’s all. It just seems to… happen.

      That should be “Return to the Temple of Elemental Evil”. That’s the module I was holding up.
