The Apocalypse Stone is an adventure module for the 2nd edition of the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game.

Plot summary[edit]

The Apocalypse Stone is an adventure designed for 4-6 characters of level 15 and above.[1] It is intended to be the final adventure of a long-running campaign, which is likely to bring about the end of a campaign world.[1]

Publication history[edit]

The Apocalypse Stone was published by Wizards of the Coast, and was written by Jason Carl and Chris Pramas.[1]

Reception[edit]

The Apocalypse Stone was reviewed by the online version of Pyramid on January 21, 2000.[1] The reviewer noted that the adventure is designed for powerful characters: "Adapting this adventure for lower levels is theoretically possible but would not be easy. More importantly, reduced power wouldn't fit with the epic scope of the story line. Adapting it to higher levels probably won't be necessary."[1] The reviewer added: "This adventure could probably work as a stand-alone adventure, provided the players were given suitably powerful characters, but would work best as part of a seriously long-running (years at least) campaign. In fact, as written, The Apocalypse Stone is intended to be the final adventure of such a campaign -— and the game world is not likely to survive the experience!"[1] The reviewer remained intentionally vague about "the details of the bigger picture of this adventure as the potential enjoyment of this adventure depends heavily upon the DM keeping his/her players in the dark as to what's really going on. If you run this one correctly your players won't be disappointed. They may very well end up seriously ticked off, but not disappointed."[1]
