Item Code: #1021
Title: D&D Master Rules Set 4
Editor: Frank Mentzer
Format: box, 64 page rules book, 32 page book
Comments: This boxed set was designed to take Classical D&D character from 26th to 36th level and introduce many new options to the game system. This was the last set needed to run campaigns with normal characters. This was the fourth box in a set of 5 boxed sets designed by Frank Mentzer to take characters from 1st to 36th level and possibly beyond into the realm of the immortals with 36 additional levels. This was the standard version of Classical D&D TSR used from 1983 onward.
