Tale of the Comet http://home.flash.net/~brenfrow/od/comet.htm
There were several others. Wrath of the Immortals ended in the spaceship that destroyed Blackmoor

When the Outlook preview (“May We Die In The Forest”) was published, there was an accompanying podcast which was basically a recording of the creative process behind it all. It basically explains it all. Not that much extrapolation needed after that.

the spotlight is OVER 9000!!!!!

A housemate with the boxset (and the desire to run it o.O) claims the name is Tales of the Comet. People are perhaps mashing it in their memory with Night Below. On the other hand, ‘Tale of the Comet’ as a D&D novel seems to exist on the internet, but not the boxset.

And scooped. Shows I should read more thoroughly.

A big thanks to both Michael and Huw! I’m going on a search for this module. I must have it to go along with Earthshaker.

It wasn’t just a module…it was a box set? They made an entire BOX SET out of this madness?

Dan, there was a period where TSR was putting out 10+ products a month. For a fairly broad definition of “everything” they put out a boxed set of everything.

Great Show guys… Loved the fun about guessing what Jedi are…. good laughs all around!

I have Tale of the Comet and would love to run it sometime. I had a mega-campaign designed around it, where a fantasy side and a sci-fi side would meet head-on. But alas, I overdid it and it never worked out.

Dan, move to KC for a month so we can game. :-)

Oh man, Chad likes star trek but doesn’t like “politics” in entertainment? I’m rolling on the floor laughing

Yeah, it’s obvious “politics” just means “things I don’t like” to these idiots.
