Classic D&D / Re: Arduin Trilogy
« on: February 05, 2017, 09:50:27 PM »
I have Arduin Volumes I to VIII, and have never been able to get my hands on Volume IX. I will try to post a bit about them in the next day or two. BTW in the wikipedia post I linked to, I provided the following info a few years back as a correction.

The Arduin Grimoire (Arduin Grimoire Vol. I), 1977. There are four different editions(printings) of this volume. These editions(printings) differ via internal verbiage, cover and back cover artwork and some internal artwork (p. 79, among others). The first edition (printing) of volume one features cover art by Erol Otus and references to Dungeons & Dragons. The second edition (printing) of volume one features cover art by Erol Otus and the references to Dungeons & Dragons have been whited out and typed over. The third edition(printing) has the cover picture of multiple characters fighting and on the back cover the female character is topless and is the David Hargrave character known as Shardra the Castrator that appears topless in the drawing on page 1 of Vol III The Runes of Doom, the page following the Table of Contents. The fourth edition (printing) and later printings, which comprise the vast majority of copies of Vol 1, are identical to the third edition (printing) except that the topless women on the back cover has a halter top (editorial swimwear) added to cover her up.

I have used the Arduin Trilogy in my OD&D since it was published back in 1977 and I love Arduin. A few things to remember about the first book The Arduin Grimoire, it was originally written as an OD&D supplement. See this https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arduin it is mostly accurate. Also remember that it is a grab bag and you should read it with an open mind and then lift the parts you like and try them out. It is an off the wall collection of everything Dave Hargrave could think of uncensored. It is like a dungeon, you will find valuable gems and rubbish in the same area.

OD&D is the only game that I play and I have been playing it now for 41 years . My current campaign started in July 2009 and we play monthly with usually me plus 4-6 players as the average.
