Digging Out My First Two Gaming Books - 1e PH & DMG

Sure, they're beat to all hell, but that's because they were read or used every day for 6 or 7 years (before foolishly moving on to 2e, but that's a whole 'nother story).

Now I just need to find my original set of dice. I put them somewhere safe years ago and no longer know where they are...


  1. Wish my 3E books were so resilient. After 14 years, they've (especially the Player's Handbook, but with the exception of the Monster Manual) started falling apart. To make things worse, these are the first printings, so any replacements would include the errata I hate so much!

    I know everyone's said it before, but that 1E PH has the best freakin' cover! Really conveys what the game's all about

  2. Nothing wrong with moving to 2e. You would never have any perspective on what you like and why if you didn't try other stuff out.

  3. I quite liked 2nd edition D&D...I'm no fan of D&D, but it seemed to improve upon many things in 1st ed. Never seen later editions so can't compare.

  4. The dice! I played with a guy last weekend who immediately showed everyone his d20 he has used for 35 years. There was a hushed awe.

    1. your comment made me look for them, and lo and behold - they've been found!
