Collectors arcana: The module originally came inside an envelope. The cover art is unsigned,
but Jim Holloway confirmed he created the cover and part of the interior art for this module (thanks to John Seibel, USA for sharing this information).
It was originally used as a tournament module at GenCon.
"Slinks are clean, well cared for, happy, obedient semi-humans.
Why are they content to be slaves? They are protected by law, owned by many a wealthy merchant,
and even have church approval. So why is high cleric MacKurian suspicious? Can you sneak into the old
ruin and find out what slinks really are, and where they're coming from?
This is the second of the RPGA series of AD&D modules. Each RPGA module has been used as an official
GEN CON tournament and has been designed to provide maximum entertainment.
THE INVESTIGATION OF HYDELL is usable in campaign or tournament play, and may be scored by points or
using the RPGA Tournament system. This adventure is designed for a balaced party of 5-8 characters of
levels 5-7, and 5 tournament characters are provided, along with general and detail maps, scenario and
character background information, and detailed encounter descriptions for the DM."
