A second post in the short history of DD: this one about the DD V1 Boxed Set.
The Boxed Set
Shortly after #DelvingDeeper appeared in PDF format Brave Halfling Press launched the Delving Deeper boxed set, in December 2012, as the physical manifestation of the #DelvingDeeper project.
I don’t personally own a set, but have gathered the following from public information posted by the producer and fans who own sets.
The whole product was packaged in an excellent, digest-sized box entitled “Delving Deeper” with the subtitle “Original Edition Roleplaying Game” and featured super impressive cover art by Mark Allen.
The content of the #DelvingDeeper Boxed Set by Brave Halfling Press comprised five saddle-stapled, digest-sized booklets entitled:
- Volume I: Forging a Hero, 28pp
- Volume II: Codex of the Divine and the Arcane, 36pp
- Volume III: Index of the Fiendish and the Malign, 44pp
- Volume IV: Vault of Treasures, 24pp
- Volume V: Delving Deeper and Blazing New Trails, 38pp
The #DelvingDeeper boxed set booklets were a re-organised presentation of #DelvingDeeperReferenceRules V1 content. The tables generally looked nicer and, unlike the #DelvingDeeperReferenceRules, the Delving Deeper boxed set booklets were fully illustrated by Mark Allen.
The back cover of each booklet states “Special Limited Edition Boxed Set – December 2012”.
Brave Halfling Press bundled various freebies with the Delving Deeper boxed set throughout the course of its pre-ordering and fulfillment, including those pictured below:
Note especially the Blackmarsh booklet (bottom center) and also the Delving Deeper V1 Errata (bottom left).
Thanks to +Andreas Davour for some of the above details about the boxed set.
