A return of sorts...

It has been awhile!

Life gets int he way sometimes.  Oh well.

Don't have much to say right now, games are up int he air at the moment, which can happen.  More than anything I want to talk about what WotC is doing right now.

They have released pdfs of "classic" or "old school" modules and rulebooks.

They have reprinted the first AD&D, and now the Unearthed Arcana is out!  (I just got mine and I am very happy with it.)

They are coming out with reprints of the 2E books!  And the Original Box Set. (There are many pictures of the box set at several blogs.  A few are here, here and here.  I already have the reprints of 2E bought, waiting for them to be shipped, waiting for the Boxest to be posted so I can get that one.  This should be an interesting edition to my bookshelf.

I have most of the retro-clones that were from the whitebox set.  But I'm looking forward to getting my hands on this reprint.

What I find it funny is many people are grousing about the fact that WotC is doing this as a cash grab.  Many of these people are the same ones who wanted, begged and pleaded for WotC to release the pdfs, reprint the previous editions and now they are turning their noses up, though still handing their money over.  It was bound to happen.

Personally, I don't care.  I like the reprints, and like the original books I have.  And, now I can put the originals somewhere safe and keep them from being used and abused by players.
