New pinnacles of adventure and excitement await you! You are now ready for the DUNGEONS & DRAGONS Expert Set!
The DUNGEONS & DRAGONS Expert Set is an expansion, and adds variety to the D&D game system. DUNGEONS & DRAGONS games, the original "role playing" games, can be played by anyone with imagination.
The DUNGEONS & DRAGONS Expert Set comes complete with dice, a rulebook, and a special instructional module. In short, everything needed to expand a D&D game, with a minimum amount of preparation, is contained within, including over 100 new monsters.
The rule booklet is easy to read and understand, and the rules have been organized into eight modular sections that can easily be integrated with the D&D Basic rules."
