D&D / AD&D licensees
Group DescriptionAny game that is produced under or based on the official Dungeons & Dragons™ (D&D) or Advanced Dungeons & Dragons™ (AD&D) brands and is officially licensed under them.
Traditional gameplay usually consists of a group of characters (called a party) who are joined together to battle together toward common goals (called quests), although many adaptations may not follow this rule. Movement, combat, and character attributes are often calculated using algorithms that simulate rolling dice.
The D&D/AD&D rules have been updated and revised several times and recent video games typically incorporate the most current version of the rules.
Related Game Groups for individual campaign settings:Planescape, Spelljammer, Birthright and Al-Qadim. The 3DO and Intellivision games' settings remains unclear, licensing the AD&D rules (or at least its brand) without necessarily making use of its campaign worlds.
