My Basic Set

A History of Dungeons & Dragons

I started playing D&D back in the mists of time with the boxed basic set in 1978. I remember my friend DMing an adventure where my first level character faced a 15th level purple worm in the second room.

I still have (most of) that set, along with the three Advanced D&D rulebooks that came shortly after. I played AD&D from 1978 through to 1987, interspersed with other rpgs.
