Wizard's Challenge II is an adventure module for the 2nd edition of the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game.

Plot summary[edit]

In Wizard's Challenge II, Baron Tigus Felmoor, regent of the frontier town of New Haven, summons a freelance mage to investigate "a ghastly creature that breathed fire ... whose hide was so tough that swords shattered when they struck it."[1]

Publication history[edit]

Wizard's Challenge II was written by Kevin Melka, and published by TSR, Inc.[1]

It was part of the One-On-One volumes, a series of single-player adventures, which also includes Fighter's Challenge by John Terra and Cleric's Challenge by L. Richard Baker III.[1]

Reception[edit]

Rick Swan reviewed Wizard's Challenge II for Dragon magazine #215 (March 1995).[1] He called Wizard's Challenge II "a breezy, undemanding AD&D game adventure for a Dungeon Master and a single PC".[1] He notes that because the adventure is playable in a single session, "it's good practice for novices and a pleasant diversion for veterans".[1] Swan felt that the One-On-One series, which also includes "the equally appealing" Fighter's Challenge and Cleric's Challenge "seems like a natural to me; I'm surprised other publishers haven't jumped on the bandwagon."[1]
