A Quote From Master Moldvay


Tom Moldvay (fist on chin) Playtesting at TSR
"The original D&D rules are a classic. They gave the first gaming system for fantasy roleplaying and, in my opinion, are still the best set of rules on the market."

--Tom Moldvay, Dungeons & Dragons Basic Rulebook, Foreword, Page B2

Yeah he said it in 1981, but he might as well have said it yesterday. Long live the dream!

My favorite quote of Tom's is quite different.

"the D&D game has no rules, only rule suggestions. No rule is inviolate, particularly if a new or altered rule will encourage creativity and imagination. The important thing is to enjoy the adventure." —Tom Moldvay, from the foreword of Dungeons & Dragons Fantasy Adventure Game Basic Rulebook
