Because of their special abilities, the three demihuman classes are given maximum levels “to help keep all the character classes in balance": :3 dwarves, elves, and halﬂings can only raise to 12th, 10th, and 8th level, respectively. When any character reaches a speciﬁed “Name” level, depending on their class, they are permitted to build a stronghold, and thus attract lower-level NPC followers. The bulk of the Dungeon Master’s section provides details for creating and running both wilderness adventures and a long-term campaign, including designing the home town and area of player’s characters, and combat rules for various wilderness terrain. The Grand Duchy of Karameikos is presented as a sample wilderness adventure area.:38–39 The lists of magical items and monsters are also expanded.

lent suggestions for using the island more than once”. However, Hunter poured scorn on the part of the module oﬀering information on the continent, noting that it “gives the unfortunate impression of having all the various racial homelands and as many varied climate and terrain types as possible crammed into a limited area”. Overall, Hunter thought that this version of the Expert Rules “looks and reads a lot better than the original”.  For regular players of the Basic Rules Hunter thought that “sooner or later you'll want this”.

Chris Hunter reviewed the 1983 edition for Imagine magazine, giving it a positive review. He thought that, unlike the Basic Set, this was more of a re-organization and re-editing of the original material. Hunter noted that the new edition contained just one rule book, which starts with a player’s section that mainly oﬀers expanded tables for higher levels. There is also a guideline on setting up strongholds and encumbrance as an optional rule. The following DM’s section provides information on special types of combat (aerial, etc.), on magical research and non-player specialists as well as on strongholds and followers. According to Hunter, this is followed by hints on how to design a wilderness. As examples the set provides two maps, one showing the continent on which most of the locations of the B and X series of modules are set and one of the Grand Duchy of Karameikos, which is provided as a “sample wilderness”.  Hunter pointed out that there is also a map and description of the town of Threshold plus adventuring ideas in the surrounding area. He found fault with the rules for not making it clear enough that a town is no dungeon or wilderness - in fact there is just one page on towns in the rules. Hunter criticized the movement rules as still being too slow. According to Hunter, the DM’s section also contains combat tables, information on waterborne adventures and a monster section. The latter provides over 50 new creatures but that is “13 less than in the original Expert rules”.  Hunter also complained that only four of these creatures are pictured. The remainder of the book provides information on treasure, magic items and “introduces intelligent swords”. Hunter continued his review by pointing out that the Expert Set also contains a revised version of the module X1 which he praised as “a detailed and well thought out island adventure” with “several excel-
