Dungeon Masters Adventure Log

The Dungeon Masters Adventure Log was published three-hole-punched. (and occasionally not).
There were also armor and weapon illustrations on first and last pages, sometimes moved to the center, and sometimes not present at all.

The first type is for recording information about the adventurers, their hit points, armor class, magic items and die roll adjustments. The second provides information on the marching order of the party, the monsters they encounter, treasures they recover, and any unusual events that occur. In addition this book contains many important tables in an easy reference form, including tables for experience point awards, encounter reactions, movement, surprise, listening, and a new table of collected combat modifiers."

Caution: The DM screens and books of character sheets are from varying editions, and would be easy for a Amazon Marketplace Seller to mis-list. If in doubt, email the Seller.






Dungeon Master Screen (1st Edition)

Earlier printings (with the first cover style) were published as a 2-panel screen and a 4-panel screen. Later printings went with a 3-panel/3-panel format.

I've got pics of the rare 1st printing over on our

"This second edition of the Dungeon Masters Screen has been redesigned for better clarity and quicker reference. This package consists of two durable, 11" x 25", folding cardstock screens for the DM's reference in playing ADVANCED DUNGEONS & DRAGONS games. One screen contains the Combat and Saving Throw Tables and the other contains the Psionic Combat Tables and miscellaneous information. These screens are useful for shielding maps and other game materials from the players when placed upright, and also provide instant reference to the charts and tables most commonly used during play. The player's side is printed with Experience Tables and the Weapons Table as well as being colorfully illustrated. These folders have been varnished on both sides to protect tham against common wear and tear. This (and only this) screen contains all the official AD&D statistics and tables."

Player Character Record Sheets (REF2) (1st Edition)
I like this REF2 set for 1st edition AD&D. The character sheets are pretty good; simple. Lots of space for character background (for one sheet anyway) for you serious RPers.

Where the 1986 edition of REF2 shines is the great collection of "spell planners" -- Very, very handy summary sheets of all AD&D Magic-user, Cleric, and Druid spells... and Shukenja & Wu Jen spells from Oriental Adventures... All spells, with their numbers (range, diameter, duration, etc.) boiled down into one-line stat blocks, taking the headache out of playing your spellcaster.

With The Book of Lairs, TSR Inc. proudly presents the first in a series of ground-breaking AD&D accessories. This book contains over 60 fully developed adventures that can be easily inserted into any DM's campaign. These intriguing and innovative encounters are ready to play and will challenge player characters of all levels.

Why make your players wait while you thumb through books and roll dice trying to scare up a random encounter? Here are ready-made adventures available instantly for almost any terrain and party level.
These adventures can be inserted into your campaign at any time and are adaptable to almost any situation.

Unusual beings are also spotlighted to bring variety and mystery back to your campaign. DMs are sure to find The Book of Lairs convenient, innovative, and ultimately invaluable!"

EXAMPLE OF PLAY. THERE ARE SPOILERS HERE FOR PLAYERS.
The Book of Lairs (REF3) is perfect for those times when -- as a DM -- you're having "writer's block." Here's an example of what I did with just one of the encounters from the book, "Drow." What follows is an "after-action" report I wrote for my players, so the details of the adventure wouldn't be forgotten with time.

(6/2/03) "Festan answered the summons from the Archdruid Kyelmann immediately. Ardeep Forest, close to Waterdeep, is a de facto druid embassy to the city-state. Ideally, conflicts from both sides can be resolved peacefully, and Kyelmann has negotiated most of those agreements.

Kyelmann, an old but vigorous man with snow-white hair and beard, greeted Festan formally. This was not their first meeting. The two sized each other up once again, for one day the ambitious and able younger druid would surely challenge Kyelmann for the Archdruid position. The outcome of that contest was far from certain.

The assignment: Investigate the source of recent Drow elf raids in The High Forest, south of the Star Mounts. Drow kill indiscriminately, and are as disruptive as settlers hacking down the forest. Kyelmann also had a “gift” for Festan, an elf warrior, Evana Vega, who ended up being a welcome addition to the party. Since the loss of Boutros the Half-Ogre, the party had been missing an extra sword.

The party gathered at the Yawning Portal, their favorite watering-hole in the city. The remnants of a badly savaged adventuring group emerged from Undermountain during their meeting, but they shrugged off the bad omen.

The party:
· Festan, druid
· Stalith, fighter
· Kavitt, mage
· Thoumann, bard
· Evana, fighter
· Druwēzza, fighter/thief

The party embarked by barge from Illefarn up the Unicorn Run. The trip was slow and peaceful, save for Orc bandits attacking from cliffs overlooking the river. The assault was quickly broken, the orc survivors scattering.

After proceeding up the River Shining, the party began searching the southern reaches of the High Forest for several days, before finding clues of Drow raiders. The only significant encounter was an extremely large brown bear, angry because Thoumann thought her cubs were cute.

Festan, in reptile form, investigated a set of featureless metal doors behind a bramble thicket. Despite threats and pleas from the talking doors, traps galore, and the failure of the party’s strongest warriors, the doors were finally forced open (by Thoumann the bard). Inside was a wide hallway, and dark. The party didn’t realize how high the hall reached, and was attacked by the guardian, Bilastrinix, a Drow elf fighter/magic-user. He was levitating above, casting magic, and firing crossbow bolts with a sleep poison. It was a difficult and frustrating encounter for both sides, with much magic hurled, only to be repelled by the Drow’s magic resistance. Several party members were virtually impotent, lacking an effective attack. Evana finally ended the battle, using her magic items to climb the wall, and leaping onto the levitating elf. A vicious one-on-one fight left the Drow dead, and Evana plummeting to the ground.

As the dust settled, and the party was taking count of the situation, Druwēzza’s mother Qilué Veladorn – one of the legendary Seven Sisters – arrived. Being Drow, this caused the party a few moments of consternation. But she only came to seal off the passage, to deny the Underdark Drow this access to the surface.

Kyelmann was extremely pleased, and received the whole party. The Drow threat was not only identified, but also neutralized."

The Book of Lairs II (REF4)
"This is the second in a series of ground-breaking AD&D accessories. Within these pages are nearly 70 fully developed adventures that can be inserted into any campaign. They are ready-to-play challenges for all levels of characters. DMs need not spend long hours creating diversions for their players - we've done it for you.
If you have The Book of Lairs, you already know what you'll find herein. These mini- adventures are arranged by terrain type (city, desert, hills, mountains, forest, etc.), with monsters in alphabetical order for easy access. At the back of the book is a combined monsters statistics table, showing all the neccessary figures at a glance.
These are familiar monsters (like the gnome, brownie, and ettin) and not so familiar ones (like the bakemono and tengu), from both original AD&D sources and the Oriental Adventures book. Some of these mini-adventures are mere diversions; others can turn into minor campaigns! In any case, DMs and players alike are sure to be pleased with The Book of Lairs II."

Battlesystem: Miniatures Rules
In a fit of laziness, TSR gave this book the same ISBN as the 1985 Battlesystem red box set. As a result -- since Amazon identifies books primarily by their ISBN -- this listing will be both items mixed together. Contact the seller if necessary to confirm which one they are selling.

"This book, a full-scale revision and expansion of the rules in the original BATTLESYSTEM Fantasy Combat Supplement, gives you all the information you need to set up and play battles with miniature figures. These rules can be used without the AD8J3® game books, but you can also convert characters and creatures from an AD8JD game campaign and use them in BATTLESYSTEM scenarios. Lavishly illustrated in full color, this book is an attractive addition to any gaming library."
