... There, in the long forgotten alcove, you see a battered oil lamp, dried up ages ago, and an alabaster pedestal upon which rests a worm-eaten leatherbound tome. Your heart races as you examine the musty volume and realize that it is the fabled library of Kong-Ratz. Within it's pages lie powerful spells that enable the bearer to summon any of the arcane lore of the great wizard's long-hidden library simply by expending a few Zorkmids (the physical component of the spell)

Games - AD&D Dungeons and Dragons - TSR / Wizards of the Coast

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons® is the original and still by far the most popular fantasy role playing game from TSR®. Players simulate encounters between a party of one or more adventurers and various monsters and non-player characters (NPC's) in a variety of fantastic "worlds". The basic idea is simple enough that a beginner can enjoy the game with only a brief orientation, but the details have grown to produce a rich and complex gaming system that remains fascinating and new to players who are veterans of many years of campaigning. If you are unfamiliar with the AD&D® system, download the Fast-Start Game.

The following is a partial listing of the AD&D materials available from Amazon.com. Although most are currently out of print (dusty & arcane) you may still order these online from third-pary vendors, just read more about them, or write an online review and share your thoughts about them with others. You will NOT have much luck locating these with the Amazon "search" function.

The Core Rules CD-ROM contains searchable online versions of nine complete AD&D manuals, plus utilities for creating custom characters, spells, races, items, treasures, NPC's, and encounters to include in your campaigns. Also included are two mapping utilities : Map Maker for quick, easy maps and the powerful and versatile Campaign Mapper tool from the makers of Campaign Cartographer 2.

Downloads

Sadly, most of these downloads have been removed, but we're leaving the reviews up for a while "just in case."

(These four Dungeons & Dragons® games require Adobe Acrobat Reader 3.0 or later.)

Crypt of the Smoke Dragon (Jeff Grubb, level 1) A simple dungeon, suitable for inclusion in a larger campaign. The scenario assumes no prior knowledge of AD&D® and includes a lot of step-by-step instructions to the DM. Excellent as an introduction. OK as a module. (SD_Fast_Play.pdf 2.08Mb)

Palace of the Silver Princess (Jean Wells Levels 1-3)(SilverPrincess.pdf 2.26Mb )

(zip files must be expanded using a file compression utility such as freezip.)

DungeonLand (Gary Gygax) - An entertaining scenario based (strangely enough) on Lewis Carrol's Alice in Wonderland. But watch out - this white rabbit has teeth! (dungeonland.zip 1.3Mb zip)

The Land Beyond the Magic Mirror (Gary Gygax levels 9-12) Loosely based on Through the Looking-Glass, this module features art by Larry Elmore and Jim Holloway.   (magicmirror.zip 2.3 Mb zip)
