BREAKING! Wizards of the Coast have released the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 1st Edition Players Handbook Reprint digitally on DriveThruRPG [AL], RPGNow [AL], and DNDClassics [AL] for $9.99. This is a major change in their distribution policy and the first of the classic reprints to make it digital distribution, something that many in the OSR community have been wanting to happen for some time. The book includes some of the errata updates, and is fully text searchable, weighing in at just over 5mb in size. The last page of the book is the page detailing the Gygax Memorial Fund, but there’s currently no information if digital prints of these books will have any funds go towards that same fund, which has been very silent lately on progress for the memorial.
It’s possible that the other reprint books can’t be far behind, perhaps being released one every week until Gen Con to take advantage of any potential new products that will be announced there.
Updated July 8, 2015: Not all of the errata updates for the PHB were applied to the updated PHB. A full list can be found at The Acaeum.
