    Think of this simply as a free update/errata with bonus features. Updates to the rules and 3 free adventures (1 of which is a side adventure straight from the Frandor's Keep module).

    acutally you bought the FULL book with the char-gen rules and other material missing from the free version (such as the chapter on dice). And the added material (such as the adventures) are free so they cost you nothing extra to own.

    I'm just sort of happier when my previews are labeled previews, and not presented as whole books.

    Holmes Edition D&D was 48 pages, topped out at 3rd level, and was considered a full game then. This free version of HMB seems like a whole book to me.

    I downloaded it and might look through it, but I cannot imagine ever playing it.

    Except that it's more of a whole book than a preview. Many people, myself included, played HMB campaigns with nothing but HMB, it's a complete game in itself. HM just expands upon it with more options and levels of play.

    Jolly Blackburn above implies that there are pages in the printed book that aren't in this PDF. I'm pretty sure the book had character creation rules, and nobody has seen fit to gainsay me on that point.
