Player's Option - Skills & Power (2e)
by James B.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 02/26/2015 22:25:46
Player's Option - Skills & Power (2e) This was one of my first purchases after I got the AD&D 2nd Edition core rules, and it was a big influence on me! Before my eyes, every class and race was broken down into a point system, and many other options presented besides! The results may not always be balanced, but this toolkit gives you a lot of fun options for the game. Highly recommended. One warning - the scan could be better, many pages are a little crooked, and a little yellowed. (Hence the 4/5 instead of a 5/5.) But it's perfectly readable....

Ravenloft Domains of Dread (2e)
by James B.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 02/26/2015 22:08:14
Ravenloft Domains of Dread (2e) Excellent book, the final TSR version of the Ravenloft setting, and the first to seriously try and make it a world of its own (as opposed to a "weekend in hell" setting). It's also the most comprehensive overview of the setting you'll get in 2nd Edition, covering the then-latest versions of most of the domains and darklords invented at the time, as well as all the rules you'd need. Definitely recommended on that note. Unfortunately, the scan is subpar - a fair number of pages are slightly crooked, and there's yellowing at the edges. Not as bad as some scans I've seen on dndclassics.com, since it's readable and it appears to be complete... but still disappointing, and enough to knock off a star....

Greyhawk: The Adventure Begins (2e)

Publisher: Wizards of the Coast

Greyhawk: The Adventure Begins (2e) Great product, poor quality scans - the text is fuzzy (though legible) and the text/art from the back side of the page bleeds through. Some pages (e.g. 1&2) are missing a strip off the edge.

D&D Rules Cyclopedia (Basic)
by Petterson C.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 02/18/2015 15:47:45
D&D Rules Cyclopedia (Basic) The scan of the book isn't really nice, but readable. It can use a lot of improvement for digital consumption. Test prints to Epson L210 at 70g. result in good copy print with a bit fading on the edges of the text, highlights on the tabes, and some images. Brother HL1110 is good too, except that darker colored images tends to merge together. Perhaps if this is a grey scale version, this can be perfect, Text fading seems less evident. Overall, if you just read it on paper prints and 100% zoom on pdf reader, it's already satisfactory. However, if you are meticulous or expect a retina display on digital tablets, its a bit frustrating when zoomig to more than 400%. Just price it at $4.95 until it gets better... A deal I am satisfied....

DMR2 Creature Catalog (Basic)
by Petterson C.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 02/16/2015 22:19:46
DMR2 Creature Catalog (Basic) This is a great book if you love retro D&D, together with the Rules Cyclopedia, you have E. Gary Gygax complete legendary work that brought the entire industry to what it is today. To rate the content, everything is perfectly done. Easy to track and good for reference. The pdf scanning is good. However magnifying it to 500% with your pdf reader reveal pixelated images and text unlike the original electronic format. The texts are OCRd and some scanned images are not as clear, say for example the next page after the cover page. I test print it with Epson L210 series (colored) on a 70 g. paper result to good and readable copy, except some text which shows minor fade on the upper tip or the lower tip. Brother HL 1110 series (black and white) is quite better, however the images with darkened color take some time to determine the details. If you bought a physical copy of Vampire the Masquerade 20th Anniversary B&W edition, you can have an idea of what I am talking about. The te...

Dragon #368 (4e)

Dragon #368 (4e) This was very useful with two Eberron settings that were helpful in our current campaign setting. We already have the books but the extra detail was welcome and the playtest classes are handy in electronic format to save on the damage to the books.

Dungeon #164 (4e) These are great. I came to 4e pretty late when my kids wanted something creative to do and these magazines are worth every penny. You can run entire adventures or steal NPC's and monsters for your current campaign.

D&D Rules Cyclopedia (Basic)

D&D Rules Cyclopedia (Basic) The scan quality is disappointing. No matter how I resize the file for easier viewing, the text is just too fuzzy; I get a headache trying to read it for more than 5 minutes. For such a significant product, which likely brings in a massive cash flow for both the publisher and this website, I'm astonished a higher quality scan wasn't done. The copy of the book they scanned seems in great shape, but the DPI settings they used for the scan were pretty low. This is definitely nowhere near 300 DPI! As far as the content goes: This version of the D&D rules is one of the best out there, and this particular product is an excellent, complete, crisp compilation of its rules, if a bit dated. It's just a shame the quality of this file is so low that I'm basically unable to use it......

D&D Rules Cyclopedia (Basic) As far as game books go the D&D Rules Cyclopedia offers what may be the best value for your money. It certainly has sentimental value for us old school gamers who remember when elf, dwarf, and halfling were classes and playing D&D didn't require pouring through sourcebooks to decide what kind of fighter to play. It harkens back to an earlier age when RPG rules were simple, uncluttered, and the game was more about imagination than balancing skills and character options. Beyond the nostalgia value there is still a lot to love about this product. In addition to character generation it covers rules for making characters immortal, game world information for Mystara, a little bit of the Hollow World setting, monsters, treasure, converting characters to and from OD&D to AD&D, and large scale combat. Seriously, it has everything but the kitchen sink! I highly recommend this product for any D&D fan-young or old, new or experienced....

D&D Rules Cyclopedia (Basic) Huzzah! This rocks my world. My favorite edition, now digital! No matter how many other games I play, I always come back to the good ol' Rules Cyclopedia again and again. Warning: this file is HUGE. It works very well in each reader app I've tried (both on win8 and iOS), and it has bookmarks too.

D&D Rules Cyclopedia (Basic)

D&D Rules Cyclopedia (Basic) Excellent book, and a good scan too. The text is a little fuzzy, but the full-size preview will give you an idea of the quality that you get. I would prefer a scan more like what's used for the B/X rulebooks, but it's still a great PDF. The rules themselves are a great adaptation of the BECM rules, along with a tiny, tiny helping of references to the immortals from the -I portion of BECMI. B/X is simpler, BECMI works better as new player introduction, but the Rules Cyclopedia is hard to argue against as the tome of all the things you could ever need to run a game in classic D&D....

Ravenloft Domains of Dread (2e)
by Jason W.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 02/09/2015 10:06:31
Ravenloft Domains of Dread (2e) Great setting, very well organized book. Centers on interesting NPCs that provide a number of different uses in-game. However, this PDF has one glaring issue: at random, some pages won't let you highlight a single word on them for no apparent reason. I know this may seem like a minor complaint, but this is actually pretty important because its one of the best ways DMs have to quickly reference any critical bit of information that they need while running a game. This really needs to be fixed.

DL4 Dragons of Desolation (1e)
by David L.
Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 02/08/2015 03:26:09
DL4 Dragons of Desolation (1e) More of an adventure outline than an actual adventure. And a fairly terrible one at that. The Bad: The adventure combines some of the worst aspects of 1st and 2nd edition adventures. There are events that usually consist of the players sitting on the sidelines and/or being led by the nose. There are dungeon crawls filled with rooms that are nothing more than listings of the number of derro in each room. Anytime the adventurers slighly deviate from the script the module calls for unending streams of enemies to attack until the players get the message. The worst part is that the adventure does not go in enough details at times. There is not enough information to run most encounters unless the DM puts in many hours of work to make it playable (not good just playable). You also definitely need to own copies of all the previous adventures. The Good: The metaplot of the adventure is interesting. If one kept the metaplot and dropped everything else and then rewrote the adven...

RR4: Islands of Terror (2e)

Publisher: Wizards of the Coast
Date Added: 02/08/2015 02:59:07
RR4: Islands of Terror (2e) A product for Ravenloft completionists only. Of the 9 islands detailed in this product 5 of them are detailed again in Domains of Dread which is the same price and a superior product. Domains: Nidala: The land of the self-righteous (ex)paladin Elena Faithhold. This is probably the best domain of the bunch. This domain is fairly unique in detailing a darklord and domain focusing on the Awful Good intolerant archtype. This Domain is covered again in cursory detail in the 3rd edition white wolf product line. (good luck on tracking down copies of the product line) The Wildlands: Another good domain. Almost an Aesop's fable/fairy tale/rudyard kipling version of a domain with talking animals. Think the Disney version of the Jungle Book as a Ravenloft domain. The domain has great flavor, but it is also the kind of place that one would use once and then never again. This domain is also covered in cursory detail in the white wolf product line. Scaena: An average domain cons...
