For the first artwork to be displayed on this Web log (apart from the OSR logo), I have chosen the cover of the Dungeons & Dragons Basic Rulebook edited by Tom Moldvay. The art, of course, is by Erol Otus. This particular edition of D&D was my introduction to the hobby insofar as it was the first role-playing game I ever played. After all these years, it (along with the Expert Rulebook edited by Dave Cook) is my favorite edition. The PDF is once again available and it is currently the #1 item in RPGNow's list of "Hottest Items." It speaks for itself.
