List of Dungeons & Dragons Rulebooks - Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd Edition

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd Edition

In 1989, Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd edition was published. By the end of its first decade, Advanced Dungeons & Dragons had expanded to several rulebooks, including three Monster Manuals, and two books governing character skills in wilderness and underground settings. Initially, the second edition would consolidate the game, with three essential books to govern Dungeon Masters and players alike. Periodically, TSR published optional rulebooks for character classes and races to enhance game play.

Famous quotes containing the words edition and/or dungeons:

    Books have their destinies like men. And their fates, as made by generations of readers, are very different from the destinies foreseen for them by their authors. Gulliver’s Travels, with a minimum of expurgation, has become a children’s book; a new illustrated edition is produced every Christmas. That’s what comes of saying profound things about humanity in terms of a fairy story.
    Aldous Huxley (1894–1963)

    In dark places and dungeons the preacher’s words might perhaps strike root and grow, but not in broad daylight in any part of the world that I know.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)
