It all began with Tallion. The mage had heard rumors, little more than children’s stories really, of a terrible place called by all the Tomb of Horrors, the last resting place of some great mage or priest of days gone by. In the cold early months of 575 Common Year, he learned that it was rumored that the terrible Tomb was somewhere in the Vast Swamp south of the land of Sunndi. All that remained was for him to assemble a fellowship of his old comrades and find the place. It was mid-Reaping of that same year by the time Tallion had assembled three allies and their henchmen to raid the tomb: The priest of Rao, Hastik Wasney; Hundar the Barbarian; and Generi, the thief.
These four heroes and their henchmen entered the Tomb of Horrors. Not all of them returned.
On August 31, 2009, I started running the original Tomb of Horrors, using Advanced Dungeons and Dragons, for a group of players in Kernersville, N.C. Jeff, R.J., Tim, and Bethany all played. This is the first of three sessions that it took them to get through the tomb.
