I don't usually read the GeekLists on boardgamegeek.com but this morning I stumbled across a nice one that is basically a collection of personal reminisces:
My marathon story involves running the entirety of T1-4 Temple of Elemental Evil over the course of a Friday after school, all night Friday, all day Saturday, most of Saturday night (we all fell asleep at some point in the wee hours of Sunday morning) and then the party finally killing Zuggtmoy after lunch on Sunday. Then we all went to high school the next day.
Man, youth is wasted on the young. Nowadays I can't play any game for more than three hours or so without kinda wanting to take a little nap.
Iuz got away, btw.

You have found the entrance to the Dungeon of Umslopagaas of the Shiny Teeth, otherwise known as the Deathtrap Equalizer Dungeon! Anyone with less than 5 levels and 70 combat adds may enter this dungeon.
You are travelling through a hilly region. You have a 1 in 6 chance of a random encounter from the table at 75.
You have found the Riddling Tree. Will you undertake its challenge? If you can succeed at a level 3 Intelligence saving throw it gives you a reward:
1-2 Random jewel
3-4 Random magic item (See T&T Bonus Pack #1)
5-6 Add +1d6 to a random ability score
If you fail, determine your penalty:
1-2 Teleported into a random Deathtrap Equalizer challenge. If you survive, you return to a random overland map location.
2-3 Lose 1d6 from a random ability score
4-6 You are turned into a nasty little gremlin rogue (undo kin bonuses and apply those of a gremlin, class benefits change as well).
You may only challenge the Riddling Tree once.

I am enchanted by this idea, but I can't tell from the product write-up how many surfaces the dice careen off of on the way down, nor is it obvious where the dice come out.
