It's hard to read the title here, but this is the First Edition of Wraith the Oblivion. That used book store in St. Catharines is a real gold mine.

Brock Professor's should adopt this idea...it will absolutely revolutionize post-secondary education.

What I've noticed with 1e AD&D is that the DM's guide contains nearly all of the game's rules, while the other core books contain only the scant basics.
I just read and article on the WotC website which kind of criticized the idea of keeping the bulk of the rules from the player.
Well, to be honest, keeping the rules in the DM's hands and away from the player's is actually a brilliant idea. By divorcing the players from the crunchier rules, it keeps them more focused on the story at hand, as well as getting them invested in their characters- as opposed to giving them over to arguing over character mechanics or worse...rules lawyering.
I don't think I'm wrong in saying that this dynamic is part of what gives Old School RPGs their charm.

....Oh, and let's not forget this.

Can you believe that these were, altogether, $30?!
