I cut my RPG teeth on AD&D 1e. As +Dyson Logos
says on his blog post
(where I "borrowed" this pic from) there is just something special about the 1e rules.
Me? I remember reading the Dungeon Master's Guide
and Player's Handbook
from front to back and back to front. I had to wait a bit for the Monster Manual
but when I finally had a copy I wore it out. I'm pretty sure my MM
would open to the same page if dropped on a table. The same page it would open for just about every teenage boy that played AD&D
in the early 80s.
I loved the art in the Monster Manual
. It fit the vision I had of Dungeons & Dragons
at the time, or maybe it formed that vision. Damned if I know.
I never thought that it could be improved upon.
Damn you Dyson! I'll never be able to look at my Monster Manual
the same again. What you're doing is making the Monster Manual
magical again. It's beyond amazing. It's jaw dropping.
I hope you keep us constantly updated as this project progresses.
I'll need to save my pennies for the future when you auction the complete illuminated copy off...
