|Edition||1st Ed AD&D|
|Series||WG4 WG5 WG6 WG7|
Isle of the Ape, also referred to by its module code WG6, is a first edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons module written by Gary Gygax. The Isle of the Ape is also the name of the demiplane where the module takes place.
Because Isle of the Ape is part of the WG series of modules, it is an adventure intended for the World of Greyhawk campaign setting. Isle of the Ape was published by TSR in 1985 under product code TSR 9153. It is a challenging adventure intended for 18+ level characters and requires Unearthed Arcana for play.
The Crook of Rao, a significant artifact found on the Isle, is rediscovered in From the Ashes, written by Carl Sargent and published by TSR in 1992 (Atlas of the Flanaess, page 72). Prerolled characters from the module reappear in Return of the Eight, written by Roger E. Moore and published by Wizards of the Coast in 1998.
