Welcome to the Jungle.

Hackmaster is, in essence a remake of Classic Dungeons and Dragons rules and rebuilt for the hard core dye in the wool adventure gamer. Made famous by the Knights of the Dinner Table comic book, the game is designed to be played like fantasy role playing should be.

The game is not for the faint of heart nor those who come for power gaming...in essence, welcome to the jungle.

Players Handbook :Ad&D 2ND Edition by Tsr 2159
Players Handbook :Ad&D 2ND Edition

3rd Edition Dungeons and Dragons these days seem to forget something - something that we oldbie table top gamers remember: the element of Role Playing that made this past time a lot of fun.

In Advanced Dungeons and Dragons, everything is geared towards role play and less towards Player vesus player or power gaming. With this book, the beginning player can create a persona and play as that persona with other players with one person as the referee or Dungeon master. The rules are consise and well laid out, even if the artwork is not up to newer snuff.

Worth getting for those of you who want to either experience that "old school" style or those of you who are just curious.
