For those looking for old DnD modules. Here is an official site of classic DnD adventures, etc.

dndclassics.com

I saw a note on facebook that their servers are being crushed.

Looks like they're a part of DriveThruRPG.com. It would be fantastic if they made the classics available for download again. There were many that I wanted, but did not get, before WotC pulled them. Thanks for sharing! Cheers!

I got in this morning and browsed through about 4 pages of products before it crashed. Really awesome stuff! The interesting background info on each module is as fun as the module itself.

Although I actually have almost all my 1st Edition modules, rule books, etc. So this site is just gravy.

Here is a blog from Wired about the new site.

Server meltdown. Nice.

The company also plans on releasing "conversion notes" so the older gaming products available on dndclassics.com can be played with newer editions of D&D…
That right there is worth buying them! I'd love to see those old ones in 3.5…

I wish GW would follow.

"Do I hear a dollar for this old rope?"

But seriously, that's good news for hermit hoarders like me. PDF's mean I can now have all the titles I ever wanted without having to have all the shelf space I don't need. As soon as it's back up I'll certainly be looking at some of the old TSR UK modules that I cut my D&D teeth on.

Explains where they expect to get an income stream while they finish developing 5E/D&D Next.

So whitebox is not there but the article says that the site will contain everything from the past eventually. Lets hope they are right.

Wow, I'm shocked that WotC has decided to allow these back on the market again. It looks like it will essentially be in the same format. I guess they got over the fact that people where pirating them. I guess they also plan to slowly add to the site as right now there are hundreds of missing books and modules.

Anyone know if the old D&D Gazetteers will be available?

Ahh – the Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh. Still one of my favourites. That and the Slaver series.

The Slaver series was epic. I lost an entire summer playing through that. I just shared the link with my group…thanks.

This is very cool they are doing this. Frankly them not doing it, is leaving money on the table. They weren't going to do another print run so why not sell some PDF's. Win/win for everyone. Especially us old farts who played these "back in the day".

Of course ebay might take a hit…..

Personal logo Sgt Slag Supporting Member of TMP02 Feb 2013 11:49 a.m. PST

The thing about e-Bay, is that those are hard copy originals. I own many PDF's from when they first offered these products, and they are not as good as having the real thing in hand. Not only that, but there are only so many hard copy originals in existence, so now everyone can have a PDF copy of what they want. You are correct, it is a Win/Win for everyone. Cheers!
