A whole new world

Over the weekend I purchased the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon boxed set. I had been holding off, since it seemed like a pricey bit of nostalgia. But then my daughter saw it at the store and asked me to buy it. How could I refuse her?

I think the series holds up rather well. For a brand-extending toyetic 80's kids show, the writing has a lot of humanity and imagination. And I like the extra goodies in the box, like 3.5 stats for the kids and their equipment. And then there's this fabulous piece of box art (click for a bigger version):

Hook horrors!  Kelek!  Snake Pass!
I'd totally adventure on that map.
