Description Edit | History

From the Back Cover:

Whether you're a player or a Dungeon Master, the DUNGEONS & DRAGONS Rules Cyclopedia is now the comprehensive sourcebook you need for the original fantasy role-playing game! For ages 12 and up, the Cyclopedia contains the complete game system and hundreds of features including:

  • All the rules from the D&D Boxed Set series, including Basic, Expert, Companion, and Masters.
  • Guidelines to develop and play characters from levels 1-36.
  • Comprehensive lists of weaponry and equipment.
  • Expansion rules including optional skills and talents.
  • An overview of the Known World and the HOLLOW WORLD game settings, the official D&D campaign world.
  • Rules to convert D&D games and characters into AD&D 2nd Edition game statistics and back again.

Fully compatible with the new DUNGEONS & DRAGONS Boxed Set, this volume allows players the full scope of fantasy role-playing from the dungeons to the Outer Planes. Now, more than ever, the DUNGEONS & DRAGONS game is ready and waiting for you!

More Information Edit | History

The Dungeons & Dragons Rules Cyclopedia version of the Basic Dungeons & Dragons rules are reimplemented by the retroclone Dark Dungeons. An outline of the differences between Dark Dungeons and the Rules Cyclopedia, written by the author of Dark Dungeons, is reposted in the forums.
