Wizards of the Coast will republished Advanced Dungeons & Dragons. The company will produce premium versions of the original AD&D rulebooks, with original art and content but with new cover designs.
The re-prints will only be available for a short time and will be printed in limited numbers. We’re talking collectibles here. Unfortunately, the reprints may only officially be available through retailers in North America.
Money raised from the sale of the new AD&D reprints will go to the Gygax Memorial Fund. It’s expected that collectible editions will become available from April 17th.
The 1st edition Premium Dungeon Master’s Guide will be a 240-page hardcover ($44.95), 1st edition Premium Player’s Handbook will be a 112-page hardcover ($34.95) and the 1st edition Premium Monster Manual will be a 128-page hardcover ($34.95).
