I have always thought the cover illustration of The Misty Isles is one of those timeless pieces of classic D&D artwork. It captures the essence of this book in a simple, yet complete way. There is nothing dynamic or captivating about this piece of art, yet it draws you in. Just as the wizard and the fighter are planning out there quest, you are beckoned to do the same.
That is the heart of this campaign setting. This is not some massive fantasy that can never be fully explored, much less understood. The Misty Isles are a set of nine distinct islands; and each is loaded with its own distinct set of adventure plots.
This supplement is presented exactly as the original published work. There is no conversion or re-working. This book would just be too large and it would lose the very thing that makes it an old school classic. However, I am pleased to announce that Pacesetter Games & Simulations is producing an adventure module for each of the nine islands! In the meantime, enjoy this book for what it is: a glimpse at the very early days of Dungeons & Dragons.
