    That depends on how much goes to the Gygax Memorial Fund.

    "purchases of this book will help support the Gygax Memorial Fund"

    Many times items sold with a charity sales pitch have very low amounts of money that actually go to the charity. So before I'll go "Yay WOTC!" over the charity angle I'm going to want to know how much of that price point is actually going to the GMF vs. how much is the GMF being used to justify the price point.

    And I bet some folks thought wotc would never put stat modifiers by gender back in print.

    WHAT? Thi... This makes no sense. None. How can the same company responsible for all the idiocy of the last few years (not necessarily calling 4e idiotic, just their management of it as such) do something this... awesome. You know, un-corporate. Thinking like human beings and as fans of the game, not just about what the lawyers and accountants say will be the best thing for the bottom line. Is there someone in charge who finally gets it again?

    Or did they just let Monte and/or Mike make a move for the sake of keeping him/them and the community happy, and we'll never see anything like this from the company for another three decades? I actually for once hope my cynical doubt regarding WotC decisions and plans is misplaced, I really and truly do.

    This is what they should be doing, finally.

    Wow, this was not something I was expecting, but it is many ways awesome.

    But $45 for the DMG and $35 for the PHB? I'm glad I kept my books, and in good shape.

    I've blown worse than $120 on worse things, heck that could be a bar tab one night when I want to do shots. I might buy two sets just to have a loaner set.
    I'll gladly buy these reproductions, if only to show WotC there is an older gamer market like myself out there.
    The giving to the Memorial Fund is just an added bonus in my book.

    To Wizards, I say good on you.

    Anyone balking at the price should remember that this is in inflationary line with the original prices so pony up some dough

    This is just so cool.

    Maybe even a little cheaper. This inflation calculator seems to think that $48 in 1979 is the equivalent of $150 now!
