The OD&D Handbook Project - Part the ???th (Visiting Blackmoor)

Another PC class added to the mix right off the bat was the Monk, from Supplement 2: Blackmoor. This supplement contained a lot of material that didn't make it to the later editions of the game, but the two character classes of Monk and Assassin have (in)famously weathered the years in dubious honor. Of all the original classes, these two seem to receive the least amount of love from gamers. The Assassin class will appear in the next installment of this series.

I know there were arguably better Monks in (The) Dragon Magazine.This project is an exercise in compiling and editing the original material, free of personal bias or later variants.

The Book of Impudent Japes - Even another page

The OD&D Handbook Project - Part the Eighth (Dungeons & Departures)

The project has officially strayed from the confines of the official booklets and dipped into the resource that is The Strategic Review. The first such departure will be the Ranger class. As you can probably see, the next one shall be the Illusionist class.

The fun never stops.
