Gaming was cancelled yesterday, that’s how sick I was.
So instead I’ll post about how happy I am am with this announcement.
It looks like a couple of my players will finally be able to get ahold of the rulebooks for a decent amount of money, and I can buy copies of stuff and save the wear-and-tear on my old editions. I really hope the WOTC decides to (re-)release the whole catalog in some version of PDF or POD, but I’m not holding my breath.
I know that there is all sort of excitement over this announcement as well, but I could really care less. Since having my own personal OSR, I’ve really figured out that I could care lass about playing a retro-clone, I want to play AD&D, and 1E at that. I really don’t care what edition a module or supplement is in, if it is a good product it is a good product and I’ll do whatever conversion is needed in order to run it. That’s an”Old School” attitude, not whinging about how…
Hell, there just seems to be a great deal of people in the OSR who seem to think that someone else pissed in their Cheerios – not realizing that they did it themselves. If they spent a quarter of the energy that they spent complaining about gaming just sitting down and doing it, they’d probably be a whole lot happier.
