Welcome!

In each free issue of this old-school magazine, we provide ideas, perspectives, and entertainment — articles and game aids for both players and dungeon masters of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons™ (AD&D). From fantasy fiction to original adventures to new spells and magic items to game theory — & Magazine delivers useful content primarily for AD&D players , although players of other TSR-era D&D games can enjoy our products!

Why do we call it &? Dungeon and Dragon magazines provided an enormous wealth for the games we know and love, but they didn’t exhaust the possibilities. We fill in the gaps by presenting additional viewpoints and materials, reflecting the very concept of the & character.

Download our free issues and enjoy! And remember: We welcome submissions, so if you have an original article you’d like our readers to see, click on the Submissions tab above for guidelines.

9 Ways to Balance Encounters

I’m following a Facebook thread in the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons group (this is a closed group, you must apply for admittance). A DM asks for advice regarding learning to produce better balanced encounters. This is an interesting thread, but like most Facebook threads, it quickly got too complicated to follow (more on that later). […]
