In this module, the player characters plummet into a strange partial plane. They meet the Jabberwock, the Bandersnatch, and the Walrus and the Carpenter, and become involved in a giant game of chess.
This module, like its companion Dungeonland, is a close adaptation of a work of fiction by Lewis Carroll, in this case Through the Looking-Glass. The module was written by Gary Gygax and illustrated by Jim Holloway. It was published in 1983 as a 32-page booklet with an outer folder. Gygax adapted the module from his own D&D campaign.
To maintain the element of surprise, the module advises dungeon masters to keep the players in the dark about what is happening as long as possible, although well-read players will eventually recognize the literary source of the encounters.
In keeping with its sense of oddity and surprise, the cover of this module depicts a scene from its companion adventure EX1 Dungeonland (a battle with a hangman tree). Similarly, the cover image of EX1 Dungeonland shows an encounter from this module (the attack of the roc raven).
Dungeonland and The Land Beyond the Magic Mirror were designed as extensions of existing 9th-12th level dungeons.
