This is your kind of quest! Will the heartstone be the key to peace in the kingdom? By Her Majesty's request... it's up to you to find out!

Publication History[edit]

XL1: "Quest for the Heartstone" (1984), by Michael L. Gray, was the first and only adventure in the "XL" series for Expert D&D. It was published in 1984.

A New X Series. Following the Mentzer-led revisions of the Basic D&D game (1983), TSR experimented with a variety of Basic D&D lines other than the traditional B- and X-series adventures.
