It's funny because it's true.

Re: List adventures that would fit the Hyperborea setting

It's not yet released to the public, but the final pdf draft of Operation Unfathomable just went out to backers this morning, and I think I found the perfect entry to Underborea.  It is full of strange new monsters, weird, alien, and ancient.  A nice mix of psychic sorcery and technology.  And the map is appropriately chaotic, with a dozen or so exits to other parts of the underworld, so you can just keep adding stuff onto it with ease.

Speaking of Underborea: 

Journey to the Center of Aereth: Has a cool Journey to the Center of the Earth feel. Though it makes some assumptions as to the nature of the inner world. The race found ruling the inner Aearth has a very H.P. Lovecraft vibe. Theadventure begins in a snow covered waste so it might fit well on the plain of Leng near the mountains, or better yet, The Ythaqqa Plateau!

For Swords and Sorcery dimension spanning epics with flying boats: 

The Rogue Mistress: This is truly epic adventure from Chaosium. Written for Elric/Stormbringer it would require a lot of work to convert. A better strategy would be to enjoy the read and just use it as an outline for adventures in and beyond Hyperborea. The story is has lots of good ideas that would fit well with the Hyperborean setting, many parts of the adventure take place in other dimensions.

Re: List adventures that would fit the Hyperborea setting

While not adventures the Arduin Grimoire's Volumes 1, 2, and 3 offer some good inspiration for Swords and Sorcery adventures. In my opinion the adventures produced by Dave Hargrave were not very good. The Arduin books were also not that great if you were going to use them as written. With that said, Hargave sprinkled everything he wrote with great swords and sorcery ideas, the books are like  mountain of ideas to be mined!

I have run the original, shorter version several times using AS&SH and changing the location to the Zakath Desert and making Eyraen a crazed former lover of the Witch-Queen of Yithorium. Works great. Run that at three cons and in home games.

With the expanded version, the main work for Hyperborea would be to make the dwarves less human and regulated and figure out a way to make them monsters -- or you could just remove them entirely and probably not lose much.
