Comic Con Score!
Dwellers Of The Forbidden City and Isle Of Dread, the combined total with 50% off came to $12.63 woo!
They had a pile of other cool stuff, including early 90's late 80's D&D, 3e, 4e stuff, hackmaster, star wars RPG, and they had against the giants which looked to be in good shape (for $50, so $25). I happily walked away with Forbidden City & Isle of dread.
I've come to the conclusion that I really want to collect hard copies of all those cool modules. Basically all the B/X stuff. (vault of the drow, the lost city, saltmarsh, etc). I'm slowly making a list of the modules that I would like to add to the collection.
Weird thing, I've always wanted to collect something, but I've never figured out exactly what I'd like to collect. I mean I'm a MOTU, GI JOE, and Star Wars fanboy, but the idea of collecting figurines is just blah to me.
Thus far in the B/X collection I have the following:
81 Basic Rules
Keep On The Borderlands (in terrible condition)
Dwellers Of The Forbidden City
Isle Of Dread
Reprint of Basic/Expert Rules
Reprint of karameikos gazetteer
The thing about collecting this stuff is that it fulfills a need, but it's also extremely practical, because I will actually use them. When was the last time you had a big GI JOE/COBRA fight in your basement?
After briefly reading thru Dwellers of the forbidden city, I think I can probably place it somewhere within the isle of dread with a little tweaking. Possibly on one of the other smaller islands.
