Impressum Imprint. Very much like its sister Ghost Tower of Inverness this was played at a convention this one at Origins and sold in limited quantities of numbered copies at the convention. TSR would make a tourney dungeon to highlight the company at the tournament and playtest it prior to mass production. Keep in mind TSR was merely a guest at Origins so it was in their best interest to make a good impression to meet expectations.

Copies are incredibly rare. The cover art is by David C. The module was renamed upon wide release in , with front and back covers by Erol Otus. The Aztec art looks damn convincing, and the shadow of the wings on the walls is the kind of detail that separates Otus from other artists. Otus did the front cover of the edition as well. Despite the gorgeous coloring and the thicker, more abstract figures that would become his trademark style, I think I prefer the earlier, more three-dimensional work.
The back cover is by Jeff Dee. Images via Tome of Treasures and eBay. After all these years, his effectiveness has not diminished.
His stuff really does belong in a museum. I feel like Indy when I say that. On the other hand, I think he may have been responsible for the cover of Forgotten Temple of Tharizdun…. Nope, Tharizdun was not Otus. That was Karen Nelson. Otus did The Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth cover. I think the modules are related story-wise. Yes, Tharizdun was sort of an epilogue to it.

How Running Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan Reversed My Opinion of It
The original module was run in the Origins '79 tournament and had strict time keeping rules- the party only had between hours HSL:preface to 2 hours HST1 p. This time limit was explained within the game as the length of time the PCs would have before succumbing to the poisonous air in the shrine HSL:p. Later editions reflect this time limit by disallowing long rests and giving damage on short rests HST4, p. This module refers to many real life cultures and languages, including the Olmec , Aztec, Incan and Mayan culture.
The Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan
But when I passed that judgement, I had never run the adventure. I half expected a slog through a flooded museum filled with gotcha traps. In this post, I revisit my old review and explain what playing the Shrine revealed. In the years to follow, Wizards of the Coast released versions of the shine for 4th and 5th editions—more evidence that the adventure ranked as a classic.
