This was a DnD adventure I recall playing in the early 90s.

There were three adventures all closely connected: a black dragon, a green dragon (which uses illusions to make itself seem like three dragons together), and a red dragon. There was also a ruined keep filled with squabbling mook races, like goblins, orcs, etc. The dragons had to keep the peace among the tribes, and the lieutenants included a goblin leader and a harpy or siren. Her name was something similar to "Hauraura".

This would have been 1990 to 1993.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Was this a stand-alone published adventure, or, was it in the Dungeon Magazine, or Dragon Magazine, as an adventure offered from the Magazine? \$\endgroup\$ – KorvinStarmast Apr 8 '20 at 13:38
  • \$\begingroup\$ It was in the edition of DnD that coexisted with AD&D 2nd Ed. I recall that I bought the AD&D books and my friend bought the DnD books, and I think this was an adventure in the DnD edition. The adventure came with a big color map of the ruined keep. \$\endgroup\$ – enixine May 31 '20 at 20:26

The AD&D Dragonlance adventure modules series

A possible match appears in the AD&D Dragonlance adventure module series, originally published in the mid-1980s and collected into three Dragonlance Classics volumes in 1993 and 1994, each containing four of the original adventure modules.

These may match your recollection as follows:

  • In DL9 Dragons of Deceit, there is a ruined fortress called Solanthus, now garrisoned by hundreds of goblins and Bozak draconians. There is also a red dragon named Harkiel, and an elf fighter NPC named Laurana, which could be the name you remember.
  • In DL10 Dragons of Dreams, the PCs fight Cyan Bloodbane, a green dragon. He appears standing over King Lorac's throne, using illusion to make it appear that there are five dragons. There is a sirine named Kiiren, chained to the top of a pillar. Note that this is a sirine, not a siren, an aquatic fey creature.

However, I am uncertain as to which module might contain the black dragon you remember.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Thanks, it seems very familiar and I think they may have republished the Dragonlance adventures in a DnD mega-adventure pack or similar. \$\endgroup\$ – enixine May 31 '20 at 20:27
