This is a great classic AD&D book one of the original Gygax books. It was the first game that took me out of a European setting and got me into Asian fantasy. This book has inspired me my whole life, the bibliography in it is excellent and full of resources to learn about real Asian culture. The Japanese play testers did a great job of putting a "feel" into the setting no other game did for me. TSR was one of the first game companies to use persons of color to test ethnic products. As an American Mexian player it hurts me to see it and the other TSR ethnic products demonized. We finaly shed the stigma these games gave us as players tags like Satanic, suicide, murder, geek, freak, nerd but now we have a new tag hateful and problamatic.

I love this book, it does Asian fantasy well. It gives enough to build on and mashes up a lot of Asian cultures into one fantasy culture so you can run it with many different feels. Just like they do white cultures in normal AD&D, they take Greek to Russian and roll it into a ball and put magic on it to make a fantasy culture that represents many views and traditions. It was the first book I ever read that made fighters more than just brutes in this book; they are artists, and poets. It sparked my interest in Asian cultures I hold to this day. If you are going to this book for facts about real word culture you won't find much, just like you won't find facts on any real world cultures in any AD&D book, but if you want to add Asian flavor and feel to a 1e game this is a good resource.

As far as I'm concerned the first Oriental Adventures has never been surpassed in D&D for the subject matter itself or as a workable system of adenturing in a civilised, honour-based society. The scan is decent (a bit speckly).<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Very Good<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Satisfied<br>

This review refers to the older file version of Oriental Adventures. The file was re-mastered with a new, better scan.

Absolutely a must for all the players and DM that are not so lucky to have the original hard-back paper one. My all-time favourite of all the expansions/rules of all the Advanced D&D!<br><br><b>LIKED</b>: all<br><br><b>DISLIKED</b>: nothing<br><br><b>QUALITY</b>: Excellent<br><br><b>VALUE</b>: Very Satisfied<br>
