I got one off ebay for $9!! The other was a gift from a friend. I love those books. Super thin and just feel great (although the spines don't match). I was not in love with the glossy paper at first but now I like it. And they smell wonderful. :)

Yeah, I'm starting to like the black & white glossy pages more and more myself.

Smell it. Just bury your nose in it and breathe. I don't know what the printing chemical/ink is, but it's superb. Maybe better than MSG. :)

Lol. I think Rhuvein posted a theory about that smell recently. :P

Yeah, Treebore mentioned he had these, and I found myself thinking about 'em and saving $ afterwards.

P.S. I promise to try to not look down upon my fellow gamers here, once I have these bad boys in my possession.

They have been my favorite "go to" version of the books. The only reason I've been using the newest printing more, lately, is because of the fixed errata.

It is very easy to be "cooler" than me.
Since its 20,000 I suggest "Captain Nemo" as his title. Beyond the obvious connection, he is one who sails on his own terms and ignores those he doesn't agree with...confident in his journey and goals.

Oh, WAY too modest Treebore.

Yeah, I can't wait to get 'em.

Well, if toys and games make you "cool" then I guess I am pretty cool. Especially once my new Mechwarrior mini's arrive. Miniature Market had a great sale on 11 of them, so I had to get them.
