I1: Dwellers of the Forbidden City
|This article or section is about something oldschool - and awesome.|
Make sure your rose-tinted glasses are on nice and tight, and prepare for a lovely walk down nostalgia lane.
Dwellers of the Forbidden City was David Cook's 1980 adventure mooted at the Origins World Fair tournament. It was published the following year as "S4" no wait "I1". Why they didn't carry on the S line with it... who knows, especially since Gygax retconned Caverns as WG3 anyway.
It's what got Cook permanently hired. Despite that the critics yawned at it, at the time.
It's your Robert E. Howard romp through an exotic (read: Oriental) temple of snake men and eldritch anathema.
The next edition later, Sean Reynolds would name this city: "Xuxulieto".
