There is a great article by by Lenard Lakofka in the free publication by &Magazine Issue: #9 – "Spells and Spell Casters" located at: http://www.and-mag.com/2014/05/9-spells-spell-casters/ where Mr. Lakofka covers the Write spell in depth. However, his article expands on the spell, so you need to have the original PHB1 text which Mr. Lokofka does not ...

Perhaps you're thinking of Carl Smith's epic 1984 module for Advanced Dungeons and Dragons The Forest Oracle (N2) The module contains a section titled The Ruins of Castle Karn in which the party investigates... well... the ruins of Castle Karn.

Hmmm.. Perhaps The Merchant House of Amketch? The Merchant House of Amketch features Beetle parasites which are Magically altered to deliver a disease with their bite that disables psionic powers.

You have to get used to some give-and-take, and you start developing a protocol. Instead of "OK, I see the little plastic rocks, they cover half my character so I get 1/2 cover" the conversation goes more like this: GM: "The Bad Guys are doing their ritual in the clearing just past the crumbled old stone wall. Their sentry shouts a warning as he sees you ...

Interesting. My DM for AD&D has only ever done it a home brewed way. Basically if you are a class that uses magic you get one chosen first level spell, then the rest are rolled randomly. It's worked out really well and has come into some funny situations where a Mage has blinded a ogre by casting light on its nose so everyone could get away. It's ...
