Appendix J

This special appendix to the Atlas details the Japanese translations of D&D books, or more specifically their art. It’s not really related to the Atlas, but stems rather from the fact that the Atlas of Mystara is made in Japan, since I’ve been living here since 2000.

About D&D Books in Japan

There were two major waves of translations of BECMI D&D in Japan. The products, publishing companies, and years in publication were as follows:

  1. BECMI D&D — Shinwa (親和), 1985-1992
  2. Rules Cyclopedia D&D — Dengeki Game Bunko (電撃ゲーム文庫), 1994-1997

Later editions have been translated and published by Hobby Japan, but those are beyond the scope of these articles.

The Red Box D&D Guide site (赤箱D&Dガイド) has links to places you can buy these books nowadays. The primary avenue is Yahoo Auctions.
