Ye Olde (Dungeons & Dragons) School Modules/Adventures (Free) (posted with perm)

The following is a list of free old school and some not so old school modules or adventures which are free to anyone to download and use for their own campaign. While I am perfectly okay with anyone who is producing new materials and selling them, I do want to give an appreciative shout out to everyone producing fan materials and distributing them for free. Please download only a few things at a time and don't abuse anyone's bandwidth. Some materials may be posted on smaller sites and  I would not want to discourage anyone from providing their items because of bandwidth costs. I will also echo Landifarne and if you have anything to add please let us know.  

The primary link is Links to 300+ Free Modules/Adventures (DF and Others)

Landifarne said:
Here is a list of links to free modules/adventures posted online (Dragonsfoot and other sites). Much of the list comes from Gnarly Bones' sticky, and I have gleaned what I can from the threads herein. It is by no means complete, and is meant to help members of DF find adventure resources. If certain gaming platforms are off limits, then I will remove their links as soon as I receive notification.
Please post new links and/or suggestions so that I may update this thread. -Landifarne
Thanks again to Landifarne for letting me use his post and he gave me permission to use his updates which is greatly appreciated and of course he has my permission to use any updates that I add.

Please note that there are some 3E,3.5E, d20 and other toward the bottom - many, if not most, old school referees should be able to convert pretty much on the fly and use these if desired.

  1. Hey, the links you posted for the Basic Fantasy Project adventures go directly to the downloads themselves; since they may change, you'd be advised to use links leading to the Downloads page instead.

    For instance, the Saga of the Giants modules have been merged, so all of those links are broken. I recommend replacing them with a link to that part of the Downloads page:

    BF1, BF2, JN1, and JN2 links are all like this:

    just change the product code at the end. I think DC1 is that way as well.

  2. Thank you for the information and I will make a note to myself and update them as soon as I have some time, hopefully within the next few days. I appreciate you taking the time to let me know.

  3. I later let Chris know that he should contact the source of my information. Since I update this with a since copy and paste. It does not appear to have been updated yet as he recommends, so I may have to fix my list yet.
