Description Edit | History

First issue editor's comment:

Hello, and welcome to OD&DITIES, a fanzine dedicated purely to Original Dungeons and Dragons, the first role-playing game of TSR, continued until the 1990's even though more attention was being given to its successor, Advanced Dungeons and Dragons. Whilst it was still supported by TSR for fifteen years after the release of AD&D, OD&D was gradually phased out until finally no new supplements were released, nothing new was presented in Dragon or Dungeon magazines, and in the minds of TSR the game died.

However, in the minds of its many loyal fans, the game never died. Like many of you, OD&D was the first RPG I ever played, and although I now use many of the AD&D supplements or source matter (conversion between the two systems is incredibly simple), I have nevertheless stayed with OD&D (although I admit a brief flirtation with Alternity when it was released). The reason: its simplicity. Whilst AD&D DMs have to work with dozens of tables and charts, an AD&D DM is free to concentrate on the storyline. The rules can be picked up in ten minutes, but are sufficient to cover most contingencies.
