FLGS and picked up a couple of goodies. Wasn't sure what I would find because there isn't a standard gaming stash there. He's been getting more old-school gaming stuff in because Rob Conley has been running his Majestic Wilderlands using Swords & Wizardry ruleset there. Trying to spread some of the OSR gospel.
I was hoping to get the 1st issue of Knockspell because it was the only one I didn't have. I lucked out and one was there. Then GURPS has their new Low-Tech books out and this one I went back and forth on for a short while until I cracked it open. GURPS does not put out back books. Period. It's a $30 hardcover with 160 pages. A lot of good content. My one pet peeve with them right now is they released the book in October, I think, and already they have three companions out for it in PDF. LT1: Philosophers & Kings, 36 pages $8. LT2: Weapons & Warriors, 40 pages, $8. LT3: Daily Life & Economics, 52 pages at $10. The reason why this is a little annoying is they could have included it in the hardcover. The Character book was $40 at 336 pages. So now to get all of it I have to spend another $26 to get them in PDF instead of paying another $10 to get them included in the hardcover. Grrr. I didn't even know I was going to have a mini grumble here, but there it is. I know gaming companies have to make money, but not by playing these number games with their public.
Big breath. Knockspell Issue #1 which I had read when it first came out, but hadn't gotten a copy for myself until yesterday. I like Knockspell. Hope they come out with more issues. I read what I could over at the forums (I cannot hide my disdain for forums) and it looks like Knockspell is hibernation. Hope to hear how it goes because it is a great magazine.
Ivy has completed her edits and most of my stuff survived although I believe her editing pen is a +5 vorpal. Slash, hack, big ass X through a paragraph. It's bloodier than a crazed orc horde. Since the Steelers won yesterday I can relax and have the peace of mind to go through the edits.
