The Official RPGA Handbook is an adventure module for the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, set in that game's World of Greyhawk campaign setting. TSR, Inc. published the module in 1987 for the 1st edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons rules. It is part of the "C" series of modules, a set of unrelated adventures originally designed for competition play ("C" representing the first letter in the word "competition").
The Official RPGA Tournament Handbook is a supplement containing official rules for running Role-Playing Game Association AD&D tournaments. The book also includes two sample tournament scenarios, "Honor Guard" and "The Long Way Home".
- Honor Guard: The player characters escort an important religious figure travelling from the city of Jesten to the city of Alm, with a brief stop in the town of Slapdash, as he transports the crytal of light. Little do they know that a wizard intends to steal the holy relic.
- The Long Way Home: In a remote part of the Desert of Ages, the player characters are forced to stop at a small, isolated, deserted town among rocky bluffs. There they encounter the restless spirit of dwarf Ottis, who demands that in exchange for water the party find a magic relic, the hammer Rocksplitter, and use it to drive out duegar invaders and free his people.
The module contains two short adventures either for one-evening sessions or incorporation into an on-going campaign, instructions and score sheets to run a role-playing tournament, and directions on how to design one's own tournament.
