Item Details

The Advanced Dungeons and Dragons Dungeon Master's Guide is designed for use with Advanced Dungeons and Dragons First Edition. This massive 238-page tome contains much of the information needed to run a campaign.

In my humble opinion, this may be the best role-playing gamebook ever produced. There was certainly nothing else like it when it was first released way back in 1979 and it still sees a lot of use at my gaming table, no matter which game or system we're playing. I love the cover artwork and all of the black and white artwork scattered throughout the book.


From the back of the Tome:

"all the information you need to referee your ADVANCED DUNGEONS & DRAGONS game is in this book."

Whether you're running a single adventure or masterminding a complete campaign, the Dungeon Masters Guide is the absolute best source for information. There's no need to guess the rules. You'll learn spells, monsters, travel, magic lists, and combat rules.


This book is from the 8th print run. This book is in Very Good condition. It is sturdy, and the binding is tight. The cover shows moderate scuffing, and the corners and edges are moderately worn. The pages show light wear, light corner and edge wear, a stray pencil mark, and a few page corners are folded over. There are a number of small discolored spots, especially on the back cover page. There is a strong musty odor due to age. Otherwise, the pages are white and clean. A very nice playing copy.

Please Note:

Please look at the pictures and contact me if you have any questions.

Most of my packing supplies are reused, so don't be too surprised if you have a combination of paper, airbags, and whatever else I have laying around.

I would be happy to wrap your gift purchase at no charge and write a personal note on the packing slip. Just add a note to the shopping cart at check-out.
