Old Eye-Lazers
Has anyone translated the second part of the old Giants/Drow series to 3rd ed? I already have G1 (Steading of the Hill Giant Chief), G2 (Glacial Rift of the Frost Giant Jarl) and G3 (Hall of the Fire Giant King). Has anyone done D1 (Descent into the Depths of the Earth), D2 (Shrine of the Kuo-Toa), D3 (Vault of the Drow) and Q1 (Queen of the Demonweb Pits)?

How much does it say about me that I was able to recite all of those from memory?

Not much... I can do it too.

*sigh* Those bring back memories...

www.enworld.org has a forum dedicated to module translation. I don't know for certain if the Giants series has been done, though.

I know for certain that the Giants series (G1-2-3) has been done, because I've got them. Not sure where I got them from, but it was probably Enworld a couple of years ago. What I'm particularly interested in is D1-2-3 and Q1.

I picked up the whole series on eBay some time ago, and I'd like to be able to run them properly without having to relearn 1ed AD&D. :)

I read a kickin' novelization of Descent into the Depths of the Earth by Paul Kidd. Semi-off-topic, I know.

Hey man, I COLLECT 'em! One thing I noticed when translating them into 3.5 was that the monsters seemed a lot weaker. I didn't do the D series, I did the Desert of Desolation series instead (I3-5), and it seemed like every encounter was a wash. I've also noticed how different the style is in newer published adventures compared to 1st ed. days.

I would wager a guess that they scaled down the monsters slightly when converting to d20 because people are going to want to add a few PC levels to make the monsters more interesting (why throw a bugbear at the party when you can use a 2nd level barbarian Bugbear?).
