The Hole in the Oak

Awesome little dugeon with room for growth!

It was very easy to run at the table, my first time running it I only had about 1 hour to prepare and the players were enchanted by the atmosphere. The layout and descriptions have just enough there to evoke the senses with plenty of opportunity or the referee to expand. There are a couple spots where it is noted that you can easily expand the dungeon into a multi-level environment and I will do just that when my players think they have 'beat' the dungoen. An excellent starter/learner dungoen with plenty of danger, gold, and glory to be had.

B/X Essentials Premium Print Bundle [BUNDLE]

I've been playing 1e, 2e, PF, 5e and most recently B/X. I fell in love with the simplicity of the rules and bought the original books, but they were a bit clunky for use at the table. I jumped on these when I saw the print version was on sale and I'm so happy I did. It's great that each booklet covers an important topic and centralizes and condenses the information from both Basic and Expert rules.

The print quality is great; the illustrations are simple and really capture the old-school feel, without taking up too much space or hampering readability. Also, something that I did not expect was the size of the printed material; it's very handy and won't take up much room on your shelf or at your table. I'd think of them like a set of field manuals and I'd say the size is a plus: they aren't as cumbersome as a full sized book but the small format doesn't affect readability at all.

I wish I had these books when first introducing my group to this system, I think the booklets will help clear up ambiguity and confusion that comes with an unfamiliar system. These books will definitely be on the table when running our B/X sessions; I might buy a second set just to have at the ready.
