An Allegheny Homecoming jRolesI m an attorney and I find myself having to think of new ways to helpurors learn how to see through a new lense I still find that the insights that Gygax provided in the Player s Handbook come in handyIts a great buy No matter how old you are or young and no matter if you actually play Dungeons and Dragons or not You can learn so much from this book Its enjoyable to read fascinating to skim and informative in some surprising ways You ll even find a GREAT lesson on how GOOD and EVIL LAW and CHAOS GREAT short on how GOOD and EVIL LAW and CHAOS with one another Some theologians and philosophers can t even explain that stuff as well "as Gygax did in this tomeBuy it Keep it and glean from it "Gygax did in this tomeBuy it Keep it and glean from it a treasure This book reminds me of a really fun time in my early teens when I was big into AD D Back when a 5 armor class was a good thing lol I don t play any but had to buy this for nostalgic reasons Along with the Dungeon Masters Guide and Monster Manual This is blatant misrepresentation of product photo and description Condition was described differently and photo must have been of a different book This book looks like it was stored in a humid location for years Terrible condition I will return this item ASAP Sir the uality of your books is outstanding I would heartily recommend your service The book is exactly the one that I had over twenty years ago and I am than happy with it Thank you Hubby s early Christmas gift was a winner I gave this as a gift for my son and he loved it The item was Most Eligible Sheriff (Sweetheart, Nevada just as described and for it being a used book it was in very good condition I mean let sust put this out there right now if you re not playing 1st edition ADfit unlike with a lot of other version agnostic AD RPG authors definitely improved on matters of clarity as time went on It is interesting though to note the strong reliance 1st edition still has on the community of wargaming and the presumption generally that anyone reading the book would already be familiar with the hobby of miniature wargaming generally to fill in some of the gaps One has to come to this with a certain degree of understanding either from familiarity with later versions of Dlonely fun researching how rules have changed through different versions of Dcritical hits and indeed they don t show up in any of the core AD D product. W The Players Handbook puts it all at your fingertip. A classic work while long superseded by newer editions it was the edition I first used The copy I had was in excellent near mint condition The book is a classic and was the edition of the game I
love the most and was wanting to add to the collectionBut I really need to talk about the most and was wanting to add to the collectionBut I really need to talk about service and the condition of the book I receivedI ve never had better service The seller proactively contacted
to manage expectations around delivery due to the bank holiday And Also Enclosed and also enclosed pleasant note in the book itself wishing me much enjoyment of the book Top notch service sirThe book itself is in immaculate condition considering its age It has clearly been loved and looked after and is a fine addition to my shelfI would recommend this edition of the game and recommend this seller to others Many thanks This was on my list for a long time to pick up with the original cover The cover is almost as new and this would be on a book about 40 years old Pages slightly yellowed but that s to be expected Overall I am incredibly happy with this purchase Pride of place on the bookshelf ust waiting for an Old School gaming group to pull it out and hear everyone go ooooooooooooh This is the classic 1st Edition Advanced Dungeons Dragons Players Handbook You need this you want this You ll also need the Dungeon Master Guide and Monster Manual a few to actually play the game Also recommended that you get the free PDF of OSRIC OSRIC is the same rules but organized and clarified There are many cl Goods as described posted in uick time When I bought this I was assuming this would give me all I needed to know to play AD D 1st ed from a players point of view That turned out to be a false assumption This book will give you everything you need to create and euip a character It ll also tell you what spells you could use It however does very little to explain the game mechanics For instance weapons modifiers are given but there is no explanation as to what roll with which die to hit That part is reserved for the DM I m guessing don t have that book yetThis is a great book but for 1st ed ad d playing you ll also need the DM guide So far for me it has serve as a reference guide for looking up spells and weapons and character creation Which is basically what it is a sort of reference. Forget about searching through stacks of books magaz. ,

GuideThe book s art work is dated to say the least The uality varies from very bad to acceptable It does give off a nice flavour it s reeks of this is anybody s game It s not as slick not as polished as newer editions It s a matter of taste but I like itI haven t played a lot of AD D editions but I have no urge to try other editions after this It gives me what I need all the other stuff is ust ballast IMHO It s a relatively clean core to play games with all the extra s can be added at your own desire Either make it up or get something like Unearthed Arcana to add to your gameEDIT 2013As I ve read about mr Gygax point of view and Was Informed By A Fellow Reviewer Some informed by a fellow reviewer some the information I was missing was intentionally left out it s part of the DM s mystiue as I call it I was used to other games where everything was explained from start to finish so this was new
to me It s a nice thought though I can appreciate itOh and IMHO stayme It s a nice thought though I can appreciate itOh and IMHO stay from Unearthed Arcana not worth it don t need it again IMHO There s not much to say that hasn t been written before but I ll say this For anyone who is interested in Role playing games of ANY kind computer online tabletop etc THIS IS A NECESSARY BOOK It is the definitive PLAYERS MANUAL Whether you are going to create your own RPG or want to return to the days of the First Edition AD D this is a great resource The style of writing evokes a sense of adventure to the reader You begin to unlock the potential inside your creative spirit You immerse yourself into the endless possibilities that make AD D such a rewarding experienceWhen you read this book you get a good guide to how create balance in your characters how to flesh out the often overlooked details the priorities that will face those characters This is good for anyone who has to deal with a character whether you aspire to be a great author or you find yourself memorizing lines for a play or movie You need to know how to create a characterEven an old lawyer can find a few things new each time he or she opens this book Gygax was able to take real world knowledge and convert it into a game that had practical implications long after you finished playing You learned to see the world through different lenses You learned to play a role And in life we all play lots of different.
