Into your hands has been thrust a great responsibility: the management of a growing domain. It has been a hard winter. Now, with the coming of spring, the populace looks to you for leadership. It will take a careful and generous hand to restore your subjects' confidence.

But even as you hold your first courts of the new season, an ominous shadow falls across the land. Earthshaker - wonder of the world - has arrived! Will its arrival be a curse or a blessing? With bold action and skillful diplomacy, you may yet divert disaster. But if you fail, the consequences will certainly be the subject of many a minstrel's tragic songs for years to come!

Plot Summary[edit]

Earthshaker! is a humorous scenario regarding a giant mechanical war machine and the factions trying to control it, from the inside.[1] The adventure also covers the player characters attempting to run a dukedom.

The player characters are charged with the responsibility of stewardship over the barony of Vyolstagrad while the baron must attend the king's court. The matters are already difficult with internal and external problems, but then a strange carnival appears with a hugely tremendous exhibition: A colossal humanoid machine of iron, called the Earthshaker. While the machine itself poses no threat, a band of unscrupulous villains seek to attain control over this iron titan, and only the player characters stand in their way.

Publication History[edit]

Earthshaker! was written by David "Zeb" Cook, with a cover by Clyde Caldwell, and was published by TSR in 1985 as a 24-page booklet with an outer folder.
