The Gauntlet is an adventure module for the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy roleplaying game, set in the game's World of Greyhawk campaign setting. The 32-page book bears the code UK3 and was published by TSR in 1984 for the first edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons rules. The adventure was written by Graeme Morris, and is for character levels 3-6. The adventure is the second of two modules in the "Adlerweg" series, the sequel to UK2 - The Sentinel.
Indomitable it stood for centuries, a symbol of order in a world of chaos. Bastion of the pass through the Kamph Mountains, the very stones of the Keep of Adlerweg were the stuff of legends. What evil power had strength enough to take it? How were its defenses swept aside?
Fell creatures now attend the battlements that overlook the only pass between Berghof and the sea.
This is not a petty problem to be solved by the militia of the local villages. These and more may be needed to withstand the mayhem stirred up by the fall of the Keep. Indeed, if the Keep is not retaken, and retaken soon, the Hold of the Sea Princes itself may not be secure.
