Okay, I need another copy of White Plume Mountain like I need another hole in my head.*
But Wizards is coming out with a hardback that combines a number of adventures I don't own (Dead in Thay, Sunless Citadel, Forge of Fury) plus White Plume Mountain, converted to D&D5.
Okay, I'm in.
I've read mostly "meh" reactions and strongly negative ones . . . but hey, there is stuff I loved for 1st edition in there. I'm curious how it will read for 5th edition. I'd like to see the re-done maps and art. So yeah, sign me up for the Yawning Portal:
The price is a bit steep, but hey, White Plume Mountain.
I'm still not sure what I'll do with WPM. I'd like to run it for my group straight-up with S&W, or AD&D 1st edition, or something of that sort, just because I'd like to share the experience. It's a funhouse, with the emphasis on fun. But if a 5th edition version comes out and it's good, maybe I can run it with that. That would be new for all of us, and 5th runs pretty smoothly. I could convert it to GURPS, but part of the enjoyment for me is the nostalgia of the original unfiltered by my conversions.
