Gargoyle[1] is an adventure module for the fantasy role-playing game Dungeons & Dragons, set in the game's World of Greyhawk campaign setting. The module has the code WG9 and was published by TSR, Inc. in 1989 for the second edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons rules.

Plot summary[edit]

In Gargoyle, which is set in the City of Greyhawk, the player characters are hired by a pair of gargoyles to find their stolen wings.[2]

The adventure is set in The Tors, between the Yeomanry and the Crystalmists, and was one of the first 2nd edition modules published.

Publication history[edit]

WG9 Gargoyle was written by David Collins with Skip Williams, with cover art by David Dorman, and was published by TSR in 1989 as a 32-page booklet with an outer folder.[2] The module features interior art by David Dorman and Karl Story.

Reception[edit]

The light-hearted tone and content of the adventure attracted a mixed response from fans, although reaction was less critical than it was towards the also light-hearted Castle Greyhawk released the previous year, and some have questioned its canonicity.[citation needed]
