[AD&D] Review: Black Blade: The Secret of Smuggler's Cov

<t>This week, I received an email that contained a review of Black Blade Publishing's release of First Edition Dungeon Crawls: The Secret of Smuggler's Cove. The review was written by Alphonso Warden, a modern-day RPG author and self-described grognard. Alphonso has several OSRIC adventures publishe...

What Peter said. Quote: Well, Rappan Athuk has my vote.

As the usual DM for our group, I like the idea of a heavy construction spiral bound book for use at the game table. I don't have many of them at this point, one or two and they are new, but if they're made like training manuals or well made tech manuals, I think that could work.
