D&D Adventure Game

TSR decided that they'd had enough of having two D&D product lines. With the decision to phase out D&D and replace it with AD&D, they gave their rulebooks a facelift, featuring a new logo with a reduced font "Advanced" in the title in order to get their customer base used to simply looking for the "Dungeons & Dragons" portion of the logo. This version of the game featured the OPTION series of rulebooks which added new levels of customizations in character creation.
