AD&D Back in Print!

This probably isn’t new to any of you who read this blog. But here it is: Wizards of the Coast is reprinting the AD&D Core Books (that’s the Player’s Handbook, Dungeon Master’s Guide, and Monster Manual) with commemorative covers. These books will only be available through hobby channels, so you should be able to find them at your Friendly Local Gaming Store (but not at Amazon.com). The interior will be exactly the same as the original books from the late 70s. A portion of the sales of these books will be donated to the Gygax Memorial Fund, established to immortalize the “Father of Roleplaying Games” with a memorial statue in his & TSR’s hometown of Lake Geneva, WI.

I’ve made no secret of my distrust and sometimes contempt for Wizards of the Coast in the past, so I will also make no secret of the fact that this is the most exciting thing (to me) they’ve announced in the last 4+ years. Bravo!

You can be darn sure I’m going down to my FLGS ASAP to make sure I’ll be able to get my copies there.

  1. This is cool, no doubt, but am not sure about the new cover illos.

    • That is the only thing that concerns me. I hope they don’t get Wayne Reynolds to do a Dungeon Punk cover. A nicely designed commemorative cover would be just fine (like the Limited Edition PHBs from 3.x).
