Summary
While Castle Amber isn't necessarily the first classic D&D module I would turn to (mainly due to its funhouse nature) this is still an excellent homage and 5th Edition conversion. Michael Curtis has fleshed out much of the adventure and included some interesting new encounters and set pieces as well. I especially love the fact we get images for all of the new monsters and major NPCs. This is the best of the OAR lineup through the first five volumes.
