Interesting point about the cut-out stand-up figures in this 1984 adventure. I'll point out that simultaneously the TSR's 1984 Marvel Super Heroes game was a ruleset that explicitly expected play with counters on a city map that came with the game (distances given in "areas" and so forth), and their supplements came with an extravagant number of cut-out figures for every Marvel hero and villain you can think of, as well as buildings, tools, weapons, traps, etc. (especially products MHAC3 Adventure Fold-Up Figures and MHAC4 Pit of the Viper). So apparently there was impetus for that in-house; I'm not sure if it started on the Marvel side and bled into D&D or vice-versa.

Thanks for the excellent review and comments on Veiled Society module. I have read it years ago but never run it. I though it was horrible rail roaded.

This was so helpful. I'm running this tonight, and am not very experienced as a DM, so this gives me more confidence. I'm enjoying the special crossover episode now.
