Post Save For Half # 10: Basic Dungeons & Dragons - Holmes
Save For Half Podcast # 10: Basic Dungeons & Dragons - Holmes

Its the grandaddy of Basic D&D, the blue book edited by Dr. J. Eric Holmes! This little gem from the late 1970s brings us the question of trying to sell RPGs in mass market stores. It also begs other questions, such as how many ogres you need to mug to level up, why unicorns blow, and what vampires are doing in a game that limits players characters to levels 1-3? All this and more will be answered on this episode of Save for Half!

No ogres were harmed in the making of this episode, not even the ones with 500 gold pieces in their bags.
