Basic D&D

Per this tweet, today seems to be a good candidate for celebrating the release of D&D, so I'm marking the 49th anniversary of its release.

Alas, I'm not playing much lately, due to a combination of several factors, chiefly being busy with work and too exhausted to have much of a social life on weekends. But I'm planning something for next year, the last Sunday of January, where I hope to have a game going.


As a distraction from recent events, I've elected to participate in this minor challenge to create new characters—one for each day of January—released a few days at a time. For the past six days, I did these characters for Dungeons & Dragons, Basic Edition (Moldvay, 1980).

I rolled 4d6 for stats (discarding the lowest die), but 3d6 (times ten) for determining gold pieces.
