I figure someone would appreciate this.
As long as you have dice (which they sell sets at any hobby store), something to read pdfs, paper, and a place to sit you got a game.

MODERATOR EDIT (5/30/2018): for those too lazy to go through this whole thread, most of the stuff in these links can be found at https://rpg.rem.uz/ it's probably the largest collection of these materials on the internet.

click on scenarii TSR for modules. Every TSR manual is there

their are some fan made ones here, their not too bad.

another unearthed arcana book

There is also Deities & Demigods and Fiend Folio but i can't find pdfs for them.
Honestly all you need is the players handbook, the first monster manual and the DMs guide and modules. Dm's guide and the second moster manual are the two attachments.
Enjoy

Thanks so much for these! My boys have asked to try out D&D, and the first edition should be a good place to have them test it out.

Freaking Awesome, thank you so much! I have been following this D&D group on facebook for a month or so, and they started posting about their all time favorite module. I haven't played since 1983 mine is Keep on the borderlands! its the one that I recall playing the most with new characters.

2 days of searching the net for pdfs of these books and I finally found them
Thanks so much! I'm going to be putting together a game soon on IRC and of course there's an open invite for everyone here. (Especially the op for posting the books !)

Now all I need to find now is
1) Player's Guide to the Dragonlance Campaign
2) Ssome dice or a program that will generate the die rolls.

TY.... I just spent hours trying to find the DMG... I have a huge library of game books but my lappy crashed with no backup and some files were lost from the recovery process. This pretty much does me... and yes, it opens fine on my system.

It's cool the old dice games are being preserved online. I used to have the original boxed set for R Talsorian's "Cyberpunk 2013" with the "Friday Night Firefight" combat system, I wish I'd kept it.

I also notice it's 2017 and I think we're still a bit further out on the chrome limbs...

Yo thats awesome really really appreciate this, i needed deities and demigods. Thanks ::woot::
What's your stuff? You create modules?
Howdy:
I'm mostly a GURPS-person, but I'll mix/match GURPS Fantasy with all (almost) editions of AD&D. I just select best of each; that's what GURPS was originally designed for.
As for Adventures (Modules), sadly no. If I can't get to a game, or no one wants to play, I usually write a fiction series. I haven't published yet.

Are you ready for a resource giving you ALL The old Dragon Magazines? ::woot::

Oooh! My friend you are in for a treat! GURPS is some of the best worldbooks written, and the coolest system for Character Generation that lets you have nearly EVERYTHING you could want! Only so long as you stay within point-limits. I'll explain that later!
It's Combat system can be good, or a pain depending on what you're doing. I find it works really good. If there's one downside to GURPS it's that the artwork covers/interiours usually suck!
They've made some progress in recent years with the 4th edition, but still undermarketed, and thus they suffer.
Gimmie some time to locate some uploads for you all.

Holy shit, sure as fuck after 6+ hours of straight bike polo.
I am now on the road!! I spent money on the luxury of a nice ticket to Old Town San Diego, from there I will visit my godmother in East County and then hitchhike up the coast to the East Bay to visit friends and family. It’ll be in time for my 19th birthday!
The feeling of finally doing this is fucking amazing!

OK, so, my pack is a military duffle bag that is somewhat old, and I'm not sure it will hold up to traveling across the entire continent; so I'm open to suggestions on the best (?) replacement to buy....Thoughts?
