I guess they had to purposefully expose Spike to greed again before they could get the shot. :P

This is SO GOOD. I started playing RPGs with the BECMI red box set, and you've done awesome justice to it. Thank you for this beautiful nostalgia boost! :)

This is actually from Basic D&D... or, back then, just plain ol' D&D before they added the "Advanced". If you look around you can find the PDFs pretty easily.

Let's just say that, compared to modern tabletop RPGs, it's incredibly clunky... and incredibly DEADLY... but it's the seed from which it all sprang (well, the third... I mean, there were the chapbooks that came out of "Chainmail" and "Men and Magic", and the "blue box" edition which got me started BUT STILL)

Your right I did get the covers mixed up and I know of the lethality of old school DnD since I typically play that version as a magic user with my 1 spell, ac of 6 and 1d4 HP... and yet in fights I'm normally the last man up for some reason.

Advanced D&D came out before the Frank Mentzer red box that this art is based on. This is the '84 version. First there was Chainmail, then just 'Dungeons & Dragons' (the blue box), then there was Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, then there was D&D basic red box, then 2nd edition and so on.

Yep, good old D&D from the days when they were still in the "wouldn't it be a hoot if we could eek out a living selling Gary's game?" phase.

I can remember seeing softcover books like ELDRITCH WIZARDRY and BLACKMOOR on the shelves at local stores. Back when 'Dwarf' and 'Elf' were character classes and not races, and the thief was the big new class in the game.

Me too. I think I've still got some of them, like the Chainmail game, around here somewhere.

Though I picked them up a few years later, after AD&D absorbed said material (EW in particular) and not while still playing box set D&D.

This could actually be a pretty cool interactive series when you think about it. Similar to something like Woona. The artist would act as the "game master" more or less.
