Description Edit | History

From the back of the box:

"Fire and smoke surround you as you swing your sword and land a mighty blow upon the dragon's head. The great creature crashes to the ground with a thud.

The treasure lies only a short distance past the dragon's body. Your eyes gleam. Riches beyond your wildest dreams await you. You race forward to claim your prize, heart pounding in anticipation. From nowhere a huge man dressed in black armor steps out in front of you, blocking your way. The treasure is no more than an arm's reach behind him.

"None shall pass!" he warns.

This is what it is like to participate in a DUNGEONS & DRAGONS game.

DUNGEONS & DRAGONS Fantasy Adventure game is probably unlike any other game you've played before.

In D&D adventures players take the roles of elves, dwarves, halflings, or humans. They will wander through dark dungeons, meet strange wizards, and battle ferocious dragons. Playing D&D is like writing a novel with each player contributing a part.

DUNGEONS & DRAGONS fantasy game is the original "role playing" game and it is now easier than ever to play. The rules are easy to read and understand and have been specially organized for new players. Anyone can join in a D&D adventure.

The DUNGEONS & DRAGONS Basic Set has everything you need to begin playing D&D games. In this box are a rulebook, dice, and a special instructional module. In short, everything needed to start playing quickly, including descriptions of over 100 monsters.

So enter the Gateway to Adventure - step into the world of DUNGEONS & DRAGONS fantasy role playing game, a world of endless excitement and thrilling fun."
