White Plume Mountain is an adventure module for the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, written by Lawrence Schick and published by TSR in 1979. The 16-page adventure bears the code "S2" ("S" for "special") The adventure is a dungeon crawl where the players' characters are hired to retrieve three "notorious" magical weapons: a trident, a war hammer and a sword, each possessing its own intelligence.The adventure contains art by Erol Otus, and a cover by Jeff Dee.
White Plume Mountain was well received by critics. It was ranked the 9th greatest Dungeons & Dragons adventure of all time by Dungeon magazine in 2004. One judge, commenting on the ingenuity required to complete the adventure, described it as "the puzzle dungeon to end all puzzle dungeons." A review for British magazine White Dwarf gave it an overall rating of 8/10, noting that the adventure focuses on problem solving. It is also the favorite adventure of Wired magazine's Ken Denmead, who described it as the "amusement park of dungeons". Other adventures in the S series include Tomb of Horrors, Expedition to the Barrier Peaks, and Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth.

| Jan 18, 2015 10:18 AM || - Rob R:|| Thanks everyone. That was one of my best experience dming for a group in RPG connect. Everyone hung in there and rolled with the punches - even when @#$-up stuff happened to the PC. Getting ambushed by an invisible stalker when separated by the party, going down in the first round, being dominated for a whole boss combat, etc.|

| Jan 10, 2015 9:21 PM || - kentmagus:|| Apologies for missing the game. Went to the doctor, said I feel bad, don't have a fever. He said, yes you do, and paraphrasing, told me get back in bed. Charger died for laptop, so that's why this is late. Hopefully, will have recovered by next week. |
| Jan 10, 2015 8:51 PM || - Kirsten:|| Hey Kent- I missed you tonight. |
| Jan 10, 2015 12:56 AM || - ANGE:|| I want to hear the story of your character Kent Paladin/Warlock make oxymoron sentences |
| Jan 9, 2015 7:34 PM || - Kirsten:|| Better bring a back up character Kent... ;)|
| Jan 9, 2015 7:33 PM || - Rob R:|| Kent- don't be suprised if the first three attacks rolls against you are crits. To speed things up I rolled the attacks at home already.|
| Jan 9, 2015 4:32 PM || - kentmagus:|| Playing a fey knight 7/fey warlock 1 in service to the Queen of Ice and Snow(Archfey). Also, Rob has us confused with the Pathfinder table. That's to be expected from people getting on in years...|
| Jan 9, 2015 11:58 AM || - Rob R:|| Go down the stairs and enter the building - walk towards the center down another short set of stairs into the atrium. Look for the geeks and nerds. Not me of course - I'll be the one who looks out of place at the table ...|
| Jan 9, 2015 11:53 AM || - Rob R:|| Under the where? above is the location - CitiCenter. Located at 601 Lexington Avenue (NE corner of Lex and 53rd - there are stairs going down).|
| Jan 9, 2015 11:37 AM || - Collin:|| Where are we meeting to play?|
| Jan 9, 2015 10:18 AM || - Rob R:|| Sure|
| Jan 9, 2015 8:47 AM || - Kirsten:|| Rob I will try and create a character tonight, but if I can't will you help me tomorrow?|
| Jan 8, 2015 8:53 PM || - Rob R:|| Knew I forgot something - you can halve any non-magical items you can carry. Everyone also will have two potions of healing. I will distribute some magical items at the start of the session.|
| Jan 8, 2015 8:48 PM || - jBernz:|| How about starting gear? Can we have breastplate/platemail?|
| Jan 8, 2015 8:12 PM || - Rob R:|| For anyone unfamiliar with the FREE basic rules given by WoTC see - http://dnd.wizards.com/articles/features/basicrules|
| Jan 8, 2015 8:06 PM || - Rob R:|| Also for hps take max at 1st level and half rounded up for the rest of your levels.|
| Jan 8, 2015 8:04 PM || - Rob R:|| Use the point buy system for your ability scores. For those that do not have a phb you can find the rules on Pgs 7 & 8 of the Basic Rules.|
| Jan 8, 2015 8:03 PM || - Rob R:|| Also - please note we will NOT be "rolling" the |
| Jan 8, 2015 7:59 PM || - Rob R:|| correct - 8th level|
| Jan 8, 2015 5:19 PM || - Collin:|| I made mine for 8 based on the description|
| Jan 8, 2015 4:48 PM || - jBernz:|| What level should we roll our characters?|
| Jan 8, 2015 11:20 AM || - Rob R:|| Collin, as Ange pointed out the minis / dice won't be an issue. I you do not have a PHB yet that's fine to just make sure you have whatever relevent info you need to play your pc. Especially the spells you plan on using.|
| Jan 8, 2015 11:17 AM || - Rob R:|| Sorry Michael, I limit this games to 5 since there will be a few people who haven't played together. That leads to more time spent discussing things as opposed to consistent groups. The 5 player table helps in keeping things going a little quicker as opposed to 6.|
| Jan 8, 2015 10:49 AM || - ANGE:|| I can spare some dice.. and i think there will be some spare minis..|
| Jan 8, 2015 12:35 AM || - Collin:|| I'll have to let our DM speak to that, but I did want to make sure- is it okay if I don't have my own materials for this session? |
I'm really excited to play and I have some experience, but I have to admit I looked up games on a whim... and was halfway into rolling a character before I remembered I don't even have miniatures or dice. I used to play with a group and I always used theirs...
If it's as fun as I remember I'm sure I'll get my own stuff asap, I just didn't leave myself time
| Jan 8, 2015 12:00 AM || - Michael D:|| Is there room for one more?|
| Jan 5, 2015 5:53 PM || - Rob R:|| Disregard Next in the title. Going to be run under 5th edition rules.|
| Jan 5, 2015 5:51 PM || - Rob R:|| Depending on interest I can run this for the next 2 Saturdays.|
