Modules, Manuals, and Campaign Volumes, 1973-2011

2399 Volumes
Scope and content:

The Modules, Manuals, and Campaign Volumes series includes books designed to accompany or enable role-playing in a variety of worlds. A volume typically includes campaign settings, character guides, game system rules, or reference tools for players. Worlds represented in this series include Dungeons and Dragons, Advanced Dungeons and Dragons, Birthright, Cyberpunk, Call of Cthulhu, Dragon Lance, Earthdawn, Forgotten Realms, Middle Earth, Ravenloft, Spell Jammer, and many more.


Most volumes are individually numbered and barcoded, unless they included extra components that required them to be housed in a box. There are 6 boxes of volumes (M1-M6) included in this series. All volumes (regardless of volume or box number) have been arranged by alphabetically by game world, then chronologically by date. General volumes that have no identifiable "world" are listed at the end in alphabetical order. A spreadsheet is available for researchers who are interested in sorting the games in a different way.
