    Let's Read: Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Monster Manual II (1e)

    This is a follow-up to my recently completed Let’s Read of the 1st edition DMG. I was thinking of following up with a let’s read of the Monster Manual for a sense of completion (one of the appendices is a chart that largely recapitulates the MM) but people said there are no Let’s Reads of the...

    [Let's Read] The AD&D Dungeon Masters Guide (1e)

    This is a let’’s read of the first edition DMG. I wanted to look at something old school. I was tempted to do the 1e Monster Manual, which is interesting in some ways such as the fact that Drow are described as possibly mythical, but there’s a ton of other bestiary Let’s Reads out there...

    Mike Mearls recent comments on 1E

    I thought it might be interesting to cross post this to see the reactions here. Someone else posted this on Enworld, copy pasted from MM's twitter; I think it's nice to see someone in MM's position having an open enough mind to still find something intriguing conceptually in a game that...

    Why I Think Everybody Should Play AD&D or Basic

    For a 1 off game;) Playing 5E has been a breath of fresh air. I have found myself going back to some of the tricks I used in AD&D and the big change I have found is the lack of buying or being able to easily get the magic item you want to be great. PLaying D&D and B/x games and their clones...

    [Let's Read] AD&D 1E Core Books

    "Core" primarily meaning the Monster Manual, Player's Handbook and Dungeon Master's Guide, in that order, but I can put some more in along the way if necessary. I haven't actually read any AD&D book in its entirety before, so feel free to make suggestions! I'm going to try to make this a bit...
