Post Last hardcover black & white PHB request for the Trolls
Can we order them, whether pod or otherwise?

Well, I understand them not being able to do this for a few fans. Unfortunately pour moi -although I'm still likely to play the game- I won't be able to purchase any future colour products from the Trolls. :(

Fortunately, I was able to get the 6th printing in the black & white flip book format.

If you really want to discuss this with Steve, find him on twitter. Its how I harass him.

I prefer to harass the old fashioned way. Stalking. And taking away the Dr. Pepper.

That would definitely be more effective, but I can't afford to travel to Arkansas all the time.

No, I think I've beat the issue to death. Oh well.

I'll throw my hat into the ring for a b&w copy of the rules. I had the 5th printing of the PHB, and it was a bear to read. It looks pretty, but doesn't read well.

Yeah, my eyes can't follow the red text of the 5+ printings. I've tried, but I can't process more that a line or so. It's frustrating.

I prefer the B&W :) but I have my 4th Print Hardbacks so I'm good (for now).

The color books look OK, I guess. B&W is still the best and what I want in an old school or clone game.

The last RPG book I loved in color were the original 2e core books. Unless TLG wants to shell out the cash for Elmore, Easley, Caldwell and others from that time they need to stay B&W.

I find the color books hard to read.

I liked my 4th edition black and white version the best.

The color books are very pretty, but impractical.

I kickstarted and bought copies of all the new color books, but the B&W versions are my favorites.

It seems the industry as a whole has shifted toward big, full-color hardbacks, but I really miss the black and white days. Also, softcover is still a nice option for those of us who lug books around.

I had given my 4th edition books to other players of another group as we were on "different" pages a lot of times.

I would really appreciate a nice clean copy without the colored pages. It's what worked for the 1st Ed AD&D PHB.

They say that the best book is the one you that has a lot of glam. I respectfully disagree. I prefer the book you look in once. That's how Gygax did it, that's how Chenault did it, and it's worked out pretty back then.
