Labyrinth Lord & other Systems

I'm taking advantage of Lulu's summer of free shipping (for orders over $19.95) and I believe finally completing my collection of retro clones. I placed my order for Labyrinth Lord and the Advanced Companion. Oh and then I threw the Monster Listing on top of the pile. Why not. Yes, I know the downloads are free, but I dislike reading that much on PDF. I like PDFs to refer to not to read. Plus I had no reason to get LL before because our group has been playing mainly Swords & Wizardry. I'm looking forward to checking it out, seeing the subtle difference all these games seem to have. The reason I buy these game systems is first I love reading about them, second I always like to read about how others do it and third I have my own way of doing things so I am always on the look out for a good idea, tearing it out and pasting it into what I do.

Hey it is Friday! I'm going to churn and burn this day while I wait for my books to come in. I will place it beside the following systems I have on the shelf beside me;
HackMaster Basic
HackMaster 4th Edition
Castles & Crusades
Swords & Wizardry
D&D 3rd edition
D&D 4th edition
Pendragon 4th and 5th edition I believe
Dragobn Age
Tunnels & Trolls
Judges Guild (I guess not so much a system but something that stands out for me)
Palladium Fantasy
and a crapload of GURPS

There are bits and peices of others like Vampire the Masqurade, Shadowrun 1st ed, Talasman (sp?), and Ares Magica. As you can see I spend way too much money on gaming, but I enjoy it.

Have a great Friday everyone!


  1. Wow, that's quite the impressive list! I am very jealous! My collection is fairly large, but I wish I had more of the D&D-esque games that you have. I'm actually looking to unload some of my gaming stuff, to make room for recent purchases. I just put an order in for Lamentations of the Flame that James Raggi doesn't destroy the world with his wrath! ;-)

  2. What a nice list! Most of my retro-clones are on pdf, but there's something about the smell of paper, isn't there?
