1977 Edition[edit]

TSR 1001 - Dungeons & Dragons - Basic Rulebook (1977)[edit]

The Dungeons & Dragons Basic Set was printed in 1977, as the initial book for the basic Dungeons & Dragons game, and was based upon the original work published in 1974 and three of the supplementary booklets to the original set. Much like the first edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Monster Manual, also printed in 1977, this book collected many of the monsters from the previous D&D supplements, and included the stat lines on the same page as the monsters' descriptions. The monster descriptions are found on pages 22–33 of the book. Most descriptions do not feature illustrations.

Draeden 38-39 Draedens are massive, ancient beings that predate the multiverse. A draeden's rarely seen true appearance is a cluster of about forty tubular strands, all symmetrically attached at a central node. Each strand has a mouth at its end, and opens upon a digestive passage that leads to the central node. The node is spherical and ridged, resembling a human brain, and is the creature's equivalent of a stomach. It contains several boulders to aid digestion. A draeden's nervous system spans its entire body. The creatures's total length varies from 19 to 38 miles, tip to tip. The central node usually comprises one-tenth of the creature's total diameter. Draeden usually appear to other creatures as the most deadly thing imaginable to those creatures. The 92nd layer of the Abyss, known as Ulgurshek, is actually a draeden who lay dormant while the Abyss formed around it.[5]

B Series Modules[edit]

TSR 9044 - D&D Basic Module B3 Palace of the Silver Princess (1981)[edit]

The Palace of the Silver Princess was the only D&D module ever published by TSR to be recalled immediately after distribution, ostensibly for editorial issues and questionable artwork. Two versions of the module exist: the extremely rare orange-cover original printing (available for download as a PDF from Wizards of the Coast), and the more common green-cover revised edition.[6] The original version added 13 new creatures; two of these survived in the revised edition, but the majority were removed. The original version of the module was issued as ISBN 0-935696-31-8. (Page numbers provided below are from the Wizards of the Coast PDF download; page numbers in parentheses refer to the revised edition.) The updated green-cover version of the module contained only 3 new creatures, and was issued with the same ISBN.[7]

TSR 1071 - Rules Cyclopedia (1991)[edit]

The Dungeons & Dragons Rules Cyclopedia was published in 1991. It was intended as an encyclopedia of all the major rules for the basic Dungeons & Dragons game up to that point, including most of the information appearing in the previous boxed set. Chapter 14 of the book, pages 152-218, presents most of the monsters used in the basic D&D game once again. Several pages of that chapter describe how to use the statistics, as well as providing suggestions on how to use the monsters. The actual monster descriptions are found on pages 156-213 of the book.
