By the Wayside is an adventure for 1st and 2nd Edition AD&D for 4-6 characters of levels 6th-10th. It was published in Dungeon Magazine #19. This module asks for the Wilderness Survival Guide to be run fully. This module also includes optional 2nd Edition AD&D content, suggesting material from the AD&D 2e Player's Handbook.


""By the Wayside" is an AD&D® game adventure for 4-6 characters of 6th- 10th level (about 40 total levels). It is set in the WORLD OF GREYHAWK® adventure setting (near hex B5-127) but is generic enough to be adapted to other game worlds with little difficulty. A party strong in fighter types is essential to success as the adventurers' main foes are physically powerful and highly resistant to magic. A druid character would also be of great value, since the entire scenario takes place out of doors."
