Castle Amber: Help Needed


Believe it or not, I'm writing a research paper on Castle Amber and the influence of Clark Ashton Smith on D&D. I'll present the paper at a special session devoted to authors from Weird Tales at the Southwest/Texas Popular Culture Assoication Conference in New Mexico (Feb. 2010). How cool is that?

I was looking through Dungeon Magazine 116 - the issue with the greatest adventures of all time.

Castle Amber by Tom Moldvay is ranked number 15.

However, the author noted that the adventure has inspired TWO sequals. I am aware of Mark of Amber published in 1995 but I have no clue about the second.

Can anyone help me out?

Cheers!

  1. It's possible they're referring to the gazetteer volume, Principalities of Glantri, since it takes a lot of ideas presented in X2 and develops them further. Beyond that, I have no idea.

  2. Hmm, ok. I'll look into that.

    Thanks for posting James.
