The Star Cairns[1] is an adventure module for the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy roleplaying game, set in the game's World of Greyhawk campaign setting.

Plot summary[edit]

The adventure concerns the Star Cairns, a series of stone warrens located near the Free City of Greyhawk that were used in antiquity by Suloise mages as magical research centers.

Publication history[edit]

The module was published by Wizards of the Coast in 1998 under its recently acquired TSR imprint for the second edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons rules. It is the first of three adventures in the "Lost Tombs" series for the Greyhawk setting and was followed in the same year by Crypt of Lyzandred the Mad and The Doomgrinder.
