I recently found a box of Dungeons & Dragons stuff in the attic of my father's home. In addition to an old boxed set of Dungeons & Dragons (the Men and Magic booklet mentions hobbits and ents), there's a plethora of other materials that I couldn't readily get more information about.
Below are some images of a few of the items in the box and the boxed set itself. I also found miniatures which I believe go with the game in some way. (Also I think the miniatures are lead due to their age and softness.)
I'm investigating these because I want to try to better understand my father when he was a young man. (He would have been 14 or 15 years old in 1974). He hadn't shared this part of himself with me; I would have loved to play this or a newer version of D&D with him before he passed away.
The quality of the photos is awful, but I will try to improve that shortly.
Here are the titles of the found items:
- Dungeons & Dragons, Rules for Fantastic Medieval Wargames Campaigns with Paper and Pencil and Miniature Figures Gygax & Arneson 3-Volume Set Published by Tactical Studies Rules Price $10.00 (Including three booklets, correction sets and item/weapon/monster lists)

- Kranor-Ril Issue #1 (with an editorial by Chip Charnley, Editor): 'The Vadhagh' A New Class of Character As Developed from The Chronicles of Corum Vol. 1-3
What exactly are these items?
