Jon Peterson visits with Bill Meinhardt to explore the original boxed set editions of Dungeons & Dragons sold by TSR in the mid-1970s. This video explains how Dungeons & Dragons first went to market and identifies the differences between early printings of the game.
I couldn’t stop watching once I started! Good stuff!!
Jon Peterson of Playing at the World begins a new video series by explaining how “white box D&D” began as “brown box”, and how every known copy apparently wound up in one collector’s living room. Recommended.
TheDrunkDM: I’ve been watching Adam Koebel run Keep on the Borderlands for Roll20 - and now I’m seriously jonesing to play some Basic D&D. Seeing it played is finally making some of the fundamental differences of OSR gaming click, and I’m really looking forward to giving it a go. I think it’s time to finally pull the trigger on Labyrinth Lord!
OldSchoolFRP: I watched the first 3 episodes that introduce Moldvay’s Basic D&D rules, explain how Roll20 works, and walk the players through character creation, and I’m going to stick with it for the adventure. (Obviously spoiler alert for module B2, but come on, it’s been 36 years. Play the thing already.)
