Dr.Bedlam Posted October 1, 2017 Share Posted October 1, 2017 I find myself wondering about Basic Sets. I'm guessing a Player's Handbook doesn't cost fifty bucks to print, considering you can get one for thirty on Amazon. How much does a Basic Box cost? Because the more I hear, the more I find that the most people got involved in ANY version of D&D because of a boxed beginner set. And I remember them all. I particularly remember some very NICE starter sets, back in the ancient days of second edition that included standup cardboard figures. The Pathfinder Beginner box included standups. Hell, the Third Edition D&D starter set included plastic prepaints, all that you needed for the introductory adventure! The Fifth Edition starter box did NOT include a character generation system. It DID, however, include one of the finest prewritten starter adventures I've seen since the ancient days of "adventure modules," back before all things D&D had to be in a hardback book. I wonder: would it kill them to introduce more starter sets? The Expert Set? Alternative starter sets with alternative characters and adventures? I can see buying this before I'd really want to sink fifty to two hundred bucks into hardback books... 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
