Fast-Play Game - Dungeons & Dragons Worlds of Adventure (2e)

Watermarked PDF

The Fast-Play rules booklet was a free module released by TSR/WotC in 1998 to provide a quick and easy entry point into the world of 2nd Edition AD&D. It included pre-generated characters and a short dungeon, as well as an open ended setting.

The rules themselves were a stripped down subset of 2nd edition rules. Each pregen and each encounter had descriptions of the unique rules and mechanics to guide players and a new Dungeon Master in using them.

We (Wizards) recognize that some of the legacy content available on this website does not reflect the values of the Dungeons & Dragons franchise today. Some older content may reflect ethnic, racial, and gender prejudice that were commonplace in American society at that time. These depictions were wrong then and are wrong today. This content is presented as it was originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as claiming these prejudices never existed. Dungeons & Dragons teaches that diversity is a strength, and we strive to make our D&D products as welcoming and inclusive as possible. This part of our work will never end.

"... Some older content may reflect ethnic, racial, and gender prejudice that were commonplace in American society at that time..."

And what would that be, exactly? You mean from waaaay back in the [gasp!] 1990s? This is just further proof that the people at Wizards have no regard for the material they own, but of course are still happy to profit from.

They put that disclaimer on all of the old content. Why are you getting upset over nothing? 1990 was 31 years ago.

"No regard for the material they own" -- what...?

If your argument is that if they're unhappy with the potentially offensive material in their back catalog they just shouldn't sell it, they'd have a lot of angry fans on their hands.

If your argument is that they should delete that offensive material before releasing the product, that's like pretending it never existed -- no less offensive than releasing it without comment.

Acknowledging the offensive material is the best way to handle it. It shows that they're aware of the issues and makes clear their stance on them. It's also become standard practice -- see also Warner Brothers and Looney Tunes, and Disney and Dumbo (et al.).

That is (obviously) not my argument, and the material could in no way be construed as offensive by any rational human being.

What exactly was different in the 1990s that is so offensive today, and how would that possibly transfer to an RPG?

They published a book called Oriental Adventures.

'nuff said.

Does that mean the word "occidental" is also offensive? Better tell a bunch of universities.
Someone declared the word "oriental" to be offensive one day, and you believed them without even looking up the word.

'nuff said.

"What exactly was different in the 1990s that is so offensive today" Oh boy...

Scanned image
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
