"This box contains all you need to continue the Adventure:
- Endless hours of adventures.
- The D&D Expert Set for character levels 4-14, including more combat rules, magic spells, treasures, monsters and added rules for Wilderness adventures.
- Module X1, Isle of Dread. A combined wilderness and dungeon adventure on a remote island filled with savages and prehistoric monsters!
- All the dice you need - six different kinds included, with marker crayon."
Over the last couple of days I've allowed myself to get drawn way to deeply into several controversies that are literally swirling over the OSR & table top hobby. Well that's gonna stop & I want to get back into Mentzer Expert Dungeons & Dragons
See its the wilderness adventures that mean everything here or the great frontier. In Gamma World its the wasteland but in the Menzter blue box its the 'wilderness' of the adventures that allows the PC's to really get ready for next jump in the box sets! Expert is where your slugging through wilderness & dungeons to become the next royals. The Mentzer box set more then any other in the Mentzer boxes is the cross point into whole cloth of Dungeons & Dragons Set three Companion rules.
This gives the player's PC's the perfect opportunity to jump levels & layers of PC baggage whist getting them on the road of royal play.
