Swords of the Undercity is the first AD&D module for use with their Lankhmar – City of Adventure supplement, designed for 4-5 characters of levels 8-12, and is a 32-page adventure with a Gamemaster's screen-style card stock cover. The module Swords of the Undercity contains three connected Lankhmar scenarios. "The Secret of Urgaan of Angarngi" describes the living tower of a mad sorcerer (and is based on a story by Fritz Leiber; "The Web of Mog" involves the player characters with minions of Lankhmar's Spider God; and "Claws of the Shree-kah" pits the characters against ancient horrors in the city's sewers.
Stephen H. Dorneman reviewed the adventure in Space Gamer/Fantasy Gamer No. 80. He commented that the adventure has "excellent production values throughout, and a plethora of useful data and errata for any Gamesmaster using the Lankhmar setting in their campaign. But more importantly, Swords of the Undercity is an adventure supplement that can help a gamemaster provide exciting, original AD&D adventure to his or her players without sacrificing the mysterious, magical feel of Fritz Leiber's creation."
