Word of Wizards - D&D Alumni: Open Grave
D&D Alumni: Open Grave
This article traces the origins of the most powerful undeads in the D&D universe; Vecna and Acerak. It was very interesting to read about what had inspired the Eye and Hand of Vecna and how the Hand had worked in the 1st edition.
The only ways to damage Acerak in the original Tomb of Horrors were quite new and interesting as well as I didn't play through the original module. Check out the 4E epic level trap that they remade for the demilich trap in that module.
