Adapting old D&D Advert Comic to Mystaraby Håvard
I just came across a blog article collecting old adverts for Classic D&D in the form of a comic book story. The art for at least some of the later panels was drawn by Bill Willingham, more known for the award winning Fables graphic novels these days.
The early panels have references to the old Holmes D&D editon, with a reference to Zenopus, but the later ads refer to the Basic and Expert Rules D&D (Moldvay/Cook or Mentzer).
I was thinking of ways to adapt this story to a Mystara location.
Grimslade the Magic-User
Indel the Elf
Valerius The Fighter
Saren the Cleric
Grindal: Grimslades Mentor
Oakthorne: Shapeshifter. (Druid?)
Dungeons of Zenopus Castle
Black Swamp of Lobella
The Dark Forest
The Mountains of Ash
Heart of Mekron (Medallion)
The Great Sword Naril
Scroll of Dimension Door
Of course, the original Castle Zenopus could be a reference to the Tower of Zenopus from the Holmes Rulebook. Possibly, the Wizard Zenopus had a Castle in addtion to the Tower?
