Playing with Fire
|Playing with Fire|
"Playing with Fire" is a 3rd Edition adventure appearing in Dungeon #82 (September/October, 2000). The adventure was written by Jeff Grubb, and appeared in Dungeon's first issue supporting the 3rd Edition rules. The adventure also contains suggestions for linking it to "Evil Unearthed" another adventure in the same issue.
"Playing with Fire" takes place in the Lippen Valley, a forested region named after the Lippen, a stream flowing out of some nearby mountains north of the valley. The Lippen is said to flow southward "to larger, more important, and well-known flows" (p. 32).
Though the introduction of "Playing with Fire" states that it is set in Greyhawk, no other Greyhawk references are found. Furthermore, no information is given on the exact location of the Lippen Valley within the Flanaess. It is likely that the introduction to "Playing with Fire" mentions the adventure being set in Greyhawk merely due to Greyhawk's role as the "default setting" in early 3rd Edition.
