This is, of course, the game that started it all.  We will not attempt to tell you about it here.  Go to the Dungeon Master Encyclopaedia fo all the information you could want.

Review

None provided here.  The World Wide Web is full of reviews and information. Again, the Encyclopaedia is your very best source of information and the Dungeon Master Forum is the place to go to exchange information with people who (like me) are a bit crazy over this game.
