Ramblings about D&D.

Featured Site – The Vaults of Pandius

I was actually hesitant to write up The Vaults of Pandius, because with nearly half a million visitors, one has to wonder if anyone who needs it still doesn't know about it. But I'll put that aside and hope this is helpful to someone (certainly there was a time I didn't know about it).

The Vaults of Pandius bills itself as The Official Mystara homepage. I don’t know how “official” that title really is, but it doesn’t really matter; there is no better place online or off to get information about Mystara.

I don’t think I could properly describe everything that is done well on this page, but just to give it a shot:

  • It has a huge atlas of recreated maps, including fixing the discrepancies between the many maps that TSR produced.
  • It has enormous information on every corner of Mystara, so much it even puts the Gazetteers to shame.
  • It has all kinds of creative and interesting optional rules, for both Mystara and Basic D&D.
  • There are all kinds of adventures and campaign ideas for the Mystara setting.
  • There is a huge collection of stories about Mystara (many ripe for a DM to pick through).

If there was any fault to be found in the site it would be that it is an old site and it shows; in particular the external links it provides are mostly dead. But if you play Basic D&D or want to play a campaign of any edition in Mystara, the Vaults of Pandius can be an invaluable resource for you.
