Wizards of the Coast Releases 1st Edition AD&D Players Handbook In PDF

July 8, 2015 by stvitusdancern

Oh the memories I have of sitting around my friend’s kitchen table on Saturday or Sunday afternoon playing Dungeons & Dragons for hours on end. My collection of books has long since passed, much to my dismay.

Players Handbook

Well, WotC (Wizards of the Coast) must have heard of my sorrow and have published the 1st edition AD&D Players Handbook into PDF form and it is now available on DriveThruRPG.com. This is the true classic Gary Gygax masterpiece and to me is still the heart and soul of the AD&D universe.

This is when TSR was just a few hours drive from my home and it felt like we always got the new stuff before the rest of the world.

Characters

It was amazing how much AD&D had developed from the orgional D&D and became this even more intricate world that we all envisioned in our minds and molded with the help of our amazing DM (yes, it was I). I cherish those memories and now I can have that book I spent many hours lost in its pages.

I have always preferred the real thing in my hand, but to have the library at my disposal is a good thing too, grab your copy today.

Do you have fond memories too?
