We have been wanting to try out the original dnd rules as presented by the White box. My son asked me if we could play something where he could play a dragon. So why not, I thought to myself, and picked up this light weight combo:

And off we went to invade a Dwarf fortress full of undead monsters!

I just drew as he explored, giving his character the stats from one of the dragons in the game.

This seems to have gotten him inspired so when I finished work the other day he had prepared a dungeon crawl using (almost) the same set-up. Great way to end the day.

White Box - Fantastic Medieval Adventure Game is an OD&D clone written by Charlie Manson.

I discovered it recently via Path Peculiar’s twitter. He displays some nice previews of the book, so linking the tweet here.
