All That Glitters... is an adventure module published in 1984 by TSR for the first edition of the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons fantasy roleplaying game. It is set in the World of Greyhawk campaign setting and is intended for 5-8 player characters of levels 5-7.[1]

Plot summary[edit]

In this scenario, a map to a treasure of gold leads the player characters through a jungle and wilderness inhabited by fierce tribesmen.[1][2] The module includes a description of the "Wind Walkers' Passages", which are strange tunnels that pass right through a mountain range[2] called the Hadarna Mountains.[1]

The player characters acquire pieces of a map showing a journey through forest, mountains and desert leading to a temple and treasure.

Publication history[edit]

UK6 All That Glitters was written by Jim Bambra, with interior art by Tim Sell and cover art by Brian Williams, and was published by TSR in 1984 as a 32-page booklet with an outer folder.[2][3] This module is part of the UK series of modules and was written and developed by TSR UK division, but was printed in the US.[3] Graeme Morris and Tom Kirby contributed to the storyline, Phil Gallagher was in charge of production. Cartography was by Paul Ruiz.[3]

Reception[edit]

Chris Hunter reviewed the module for Imagine magazine, giving it a favorable review.[1] Hunter noted that, compared to UK5, this module is a more conventional "follow-the-treasure-map-adventure".[1] Although he thought this a "hackneyed idea", Hunter considered it well executed.[1] He described the main part of the module as "well thought out".[1] Overall he called this "a worthwhile and interesting excursion".[1]
