Mount Gundabad is a supplement (in the Campaign-series) for Middle-earth Role Playing, 1st Edition.

In light of later published writings by J.R.R. Tolkien, Thomas Morwinsky published an article in Other Hands ("The History of Mount Gundabad", issue 28 January 2000) on suggestions for revisions for the Mount Gundabad module.

For use with this supplement, Mithril Miniatures released a set of metal miniatures (M93 - M102 Mount Gundabad).
