The “Old School for the New Year” celebration rocks on as I share my thoughts on, and page through, the first volume in the Original Adventures Reincarnated series, Into the Borderlands. The hardcover provides the original Dungeons & Dragons modules B1 In Search of the Unknown and B2 The Keep on the Borderlands as well as 5th edition conversions of both. Are these two converted classics deserving of a place in you 5E D&D collection? Or has time simply not been kind to these two Basic Dungeons & Dragons adventures? You’ll find out!

Summary
Into the Borderlands is a great kickoff to the D&D Original Adventures Reincarnated lineup. I feel the conversions are well done for both of the adventures and I certainly appreciate the additional content expanding the tales. I do feel the inclusion of each printing of the adventures is total overkill though. Plus, I do wish more effort was made to make the book easier to use at the table. All in all though, a really fun homage to a couple of D&D classics.
