Bottle City is a site of high adventure, where strange magic interweaves with nine trapped gods, demigods, and demons who vie for its control -- but all are minikins, captive in the magical city in the bottle!
In 1974 Bottle City was one of the largest design projects Rob Kuntz undertook as the co-GM of the original Lake Geneva campaign. Found on the second level of the Castle, it stupefied such adventuring stalwarts as Bombadil (Jim Ward), Terik (Terry Kuntz), Erac (Ernie Gygax), Murlynd (Don Kaye), and others -- that is until they touched the bottle itself, and were drawn into the city, where the fun really began. . . .
Bottle City is a setting that will enthrall your players as they seek to escape the deadly place they have unintentionally entered; the adventure is designed to challenge PCs for levels 8-12. First-edition compatible using the OGL.
