Prepare to get your roleplay on like it’s 1974. As was previously revealed in the Dungeons & Dragons 2012 product schedule, Wizards of the Coast will be publishing premium reprints of the original Dungeons & Dragons books (Monster Manual, Player’s Handbook, and Dungeon Master’s Guide).
The new printings will be faithful reproductions of the originals based on high-quality scans of those texts, but with all-new cover artwork to commemorate the re-release. Now, that cover artwork has been revealed.
All three books will be limited-edition hobby store exclusives, available starting on April 17th, with a portion of the proceeds donated to the Gygax Memorial Fund. Established to honor Gary Gygax, the late co-creator of Dungeons & Dragons, the fund is aiming to raise a statue in his hometown of Lake Geneva, Wisconsin.
