Today, Wizards of the Coast and our friends at Drive Thru RPG announced the launch of DnDClassics.com, an online store that will sell PDF versions of materials from every edition of Dungeons & Dragons.
This is fantastic news, as so many of the materials from earlier editions have been out of print for years now. I've spent hundreds of dollars filling in my collection from eBay auctions, and there's still plenty of supplements that I don't have on my shelf. Being able to get a nice clean copy of Keep on the Borderlands to play with my kids is awesome.
If you've never played D&D, or you've been out of it for years, you definitely should head over and check out DnDClassics.com. as there is a good amount of free products including quickstart rules and intro adventures, that can introduce you, your friends and your kids to the game of D&D.
Here is the official press release from Wizards of the Coast, and you can read the FAQ about the new site here.
