Original super rare 1st edition books !! I just wanted to show you guys !! the making of THE RPG
The original Dungeons & Dragons boxed set was the first role-playing game, a fantasy system with a medieval European flavor.This set introduced concepts which would become standard, including abilities (such as strength, intelligence, and dexterity); character classes (fighting-man, magic-user, cleric) and levels; races (human, dwarf, elf, halfling); armor class; monsters and treasure; subterranean dungeons of halls, rooms, and doors replete with tricks and traps; and magic items, such as intelligent swords. The set also includes rules for wilderness travel by land and sea, hiring specialists and men-at-arms, building fortifications and setting up baronies.Movement rates and areas are given in inches, like that of the miniatures rules from which the system descended.

The set also included brief guidelines on using monsters as player characters.

This set features only a handful of the elements for which the game is known today: just three character classes (fighting-man, magic-user, and cleric); four races (human, dwarf, elf, hobbit); and only three alignments (lawful, neutral, and chaotic). The rules assume that players have owned and have played the miniatures wargame Chainmail and that they have used its measurement and combat systems. An optional combat system is included within the rules that later developed into the sole combat system of later versions of the game. In addition, the rules presumed ownership of Outdoor Survival, an Avalon Hill board game for outdoor exploration and adventure.

The Men & Magic booklet recommends using miniatures only “if the players have them available and so desire”, although they were not required and cardboard counters were given as an alternative.

The Monsters & Treasure booklet contains some of the first depictions of the game’s most iconic monsters, many of which were adapted from mythology and various literary works.

The set initially referred to some of the creatures in the game as “hobbits” and “ents” after J. R. R. Tolkien-universe creatures, although after legal difficulties they were changed to “halflings” and “treants”, respectively.
