Arduin Boxed Set c. 1981

Arduin - the OTHER 3 little brown books! Heck, it even says ORIGINAL EDITION on the cover! This unusual 1981 boxed set from Grimoire Games has all three volumes of this self-contained hyper-weird OD&D mutation. It's all you need to be totally confused while having a blast. Magnifying glass recommended.

    Acaeum has some nice scans of the three individual volumes CLICK HERE.

    However, the only boxed set I've ever seen is the one I own. I'd never even heard of the boxed set until I grabbed it off eBay.

    It has the three original volumes of the trilogy and one page of errata (which you can see in the bottom of the box in the second picture).

  9. Interesting. I have two of those boxed sets, one which I purchased myself at a hobby store, and another which was purchased by one of my players around the same time. Neither box has the errata sheets. Bummer.

    PS: One box is beaten to hell and back, the other is mint. You can guess which was the DM's copy!
