Outside of C&C, I look forward to being able to read some OD&D books that aren't from the Original Collector's Edition, as they have a much different feel and even different things (like hobbits and not halflings.) I also anticipate, hopefully, releasing Ruins and Radiation [tm] sometime toward the end of the year as there are many things I need to afford before I can finish it as I want it to be.

Lets see, you spend $200/WEEK on RPG stuff. Thats $800/month. In 10 months of saving that money you would have $8,000. That would let you do lots of nice things.

I'll add Of Gods and Monsters to this list. Looking forward to that one as much as the rest.

Yeah. Why do you think I'm cutting back on my purchases?

Good luck with that. I think your "addiction" is much worse than mine.

Count me in on some Of Gods and Monsters and some CKG goodness. Hopefully a lot more of the A series, also!

I'm looking forward to receiving my Engineering Dungeons and A5.

Right now I'm reading Dragon 100 - and recalled a thread (DF?) about someone constructing a Dragonchess board. [No wait, it was the Acaeum].

I keep going back to my Chimera rulebook. It's such a fun little skill based system.

Any more details on this Ser? Sounds promising?

Me, I'm eagerly awaiting Towers of Adventure and Engineering Dungeons.

*Ultimate Toolbox ~ I actually think I like the original better.

*Robotech: The Masters Saga Sourcebook ~ Quite possibly the best Robotech Sourcebook to date. Filled with fluff, and a ton of adventure material and background. If you are a Robotech Masters Saga fan this book is an absolute must. If you are a Robotech fan in general, then this book is really a great tool to add to your Robotech RPG games.

Well, as the name implies, it is a Post-Apocalypse setting based on the SIEGE Engine as the rules. It'll be produce through my own publishing arm which I am calling Atomic Clock Enterprises [tm] and every copy will be hand assembled, and, as I am hoping, a box set. I've got some ideas which I think will make it even more interesting and unique, and not "just a Gamma World clone."

For one thing, the monster book will have like 300 beasts and a system for making your own.

Very interesting. I'll definitely check that out when you release it.

I've been reading 30 Years of Adventure: - A Celebration of Dungeons & Dragons, that anniversary book published by those lizards of the cost.

Not really gaming stuff, but gaming related. I bought it because it was like $5 for a new soft cover version.

It's mostly crap with an awful layout, graphics and text, but there are some highlights chapters written by Gary and Harold Johnson.

And it was maybe a good idea for the newer/younger gamers who might have an interest in the roots of the game.
