The classics are returning


I started playing D&D back when I was in highschool, probably around 1999. It was 3rd edition then. This is not to say I wasn’t role playing before that, I was, but I don’t remember what it was I was playing then. I know some of it was Judge Dredd, and then we built our own system, my small group, with a setting and custom rules. I do remember having to deal with THAC0, so I might have played some AD&D, but that could be tainted memories from playing Baldur’s Gate on the PC.

I know some people who did play a lot more of the older editions of D&D, people who might be interested in those old editions again. Wizards of the Coast has provided a way for those people to get their hands on these rules again, if only in PDF form. But it is more than just the old core books, this site, DnDClassics, has a whole slew of items. Under the editions section, there are 6 categories, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th editions, Basic/Expert and Original Edition. There is also a Settings section, and under that are Dark Sun, Ebberon, Forgotten Realms, Greyhawk, Planescape and Ravenloft. I looked under 3rd edition, and that had 61 books in it alone, so there is a lot there to choose from, and should be enough to keep most people happy.

But, if it isn’t, then more is being released all the time, below is a list of some newly released items, and after that is a list of some more to come.
