I remember the original AD&D box set
any rpg is only as strong as the storyteller/dungeonmaster etc
also kill all power gamers nice and early.... a twisted Games Master knows how to use plot to make all of those dice players start enjoying the story
You remember that guy... probably 20 years ago, went to gen-con and similar events and
routinely wiped out massively powerful parties of adventurers with a den of kobolds? He didn't
"cheat" or anything, he just played the little bastards "realistically"... Like, why would they dig
their tunnels high enough for a 6' human warrior to stand upright when they're only about 4' high?
Anyway, when I was in about 5th grade, I had the basic boxed set (the 8.5 x 11), the ORIGINAL
boxed set, and the Chainmail boxed set. I bet those'd be worth money now...
