Wizards of the Coast have made almost every D&D module and book available online. And to celebrate they are offering a few select samples for free (only for the first week though! So go there now! Don’t miss out!). We really applaud this initiative, though the site itself could have been given a better treatment. This looks like amazon in the early 2000’s, guys! Tiny previews of the covers and awkward usage of space… it doesn’t do the content offered justice. Then again; maybe nobody cares. All that matters is what’s between the virtual spines.
The available, free PDF’s are found here:
