Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Review
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Cover art and visual representation in the mind is great
Pro Gary Gygax's personal touch
Later editions were, to varying degrees, designed for market appeal; but the original AD&D is little more than one man sharing notes on his personal vision. It's tailored to his thematic tastes, and very often as much care is put into explaining the reasoning behind a rule as into defining the rule itself.
