Dark Journey is a classic dungeon. Playable at any table and designed with little background allowing for easy insertion as a chance encounter or part of a more intricate campaign plot. Its yours to choose.

The goblin trail leads into the wilds, easy enough to follow; it offers little but a small reward. But as with many trails, it's not where it begins, nor where it leads one to, but where it ends that matters. And this one ends at the gates of an underground fastness, a hold of stone and iron; a dungeon-home to the goblins and their black hearted masters. But this is no simple goblin hole, nor a lair of some larger beast. Here, beneath the earth, lies a sprawling dungeon, built long ago by a wizard, for his own machinations.

Dark Journey is a dungeon adventure cast in the classic mold. Here the CK is able to present the players a network of inter-connecting halls, rooms, chambers, cellars and more. A wizard's old hold, it offers libraries guarded by strange monsters, laboratories, cellars, trapped chambers and more; here lies the wizard's forgotten wealth, his magic, his money, his artifacts. But the adventurer must be wary for wizard's do not idly set treasures down but that they are trapped or protected by guards and wards and monsters summoned from dark places.

Beneath the earth lies adventure, wealth, glory and more than the small reward for goblin raiders. Take the Dark Journey and began an adventure in a dungeon world.

Thanks, Ross. This was really fun to write. I felt like a 16 year old kid sitting at the desk in my room in 1983. All I needed was some parachute pants and some Huey Lewis. :)

Downloaded this tonight. A lot of nice "classic" elements. Magic pools, cryptic messages, riddles, and lots more. A really nice classic feeling low level dungeon!

I was wearing parachute pants when I picked up my soon "to be wife" on our first date back then.

Thanks for the kind word, guys. It was a labor of love to be sure. Is it any surprise that my favorite old AD&D mods were "White Plume Mountain" and "The Ghost Tower of Inverness"? ;)

Never got to play White Plume, but Inverness was wicked! :)

Just picked it up today and have been sort of skimming it. I think this should have been the module we played before Rising Knight; it's a good survivability test and way to get some cool stuff.

So am I right in thinking that the strange icons in the corridors on levels 1 and 2 are teleporters?

Yes and no.

Level 1 those "K" symbols, so that thread solves that mystery.

However, Level 2 has a lot of "T/T" symbols in various corridors. Are those just standard pit traps then?

Yeah, those "T/T" on L2 are just 10' pit traps scattered about. I thought they were mentioned at the preface to L2, but it isn't. or insert whatever you wish. I like pit traps. :)
