It's not really as simple as that.

Played Morloc's Tower and its near relative (different company) Temple of Apshai.  I don't recall the former offering me the company and services of the lovely Imelda quite that way.  There is a very deep sense of bathos derived from a game looking like this one did -- dig them screenshots -- that repeatedly panders to the male libido...

I had the purple and the blue D&D Box Sets.  Think I still have the Expert Rules Set, too.

I have the Basic and Expert rules lying around here somewhere, probably mixed in with my box of modules.
