    I assume that these are exact reprints of the "original" reprinted versions, ie, they contain the last printed changes and errata and nothing beyond that?

    It's like the Rage Virus from 28 DAYS LATER except you get excited and happy about RPG products!

    Now there's a sobering mental image.

    Parenthetically, photostat copies of the manuscript rules were made, and when the commercial game was published, fans not willing or financially unable to expend the princely sum of $10 for the product did likewise, copying the material on school (mainly college/university) machines. We were well aware of this, and many gamers who had spent their hard-earned money to buy the game were more irate than we were. In all, though, the 'pirate' material was more helpful that not. Many new fans were made by DMs who were using such copies to run their games. - Gary Gygax

    I damn sure hope so. Referential artwork on the covers is fine but no thank you I don't want anyone changing the inside contents.

    As much as I like, say, Jim Lee's work on THE MAXX comic from the 90s, I don't want MARVEL to reboot SPIDER-MAN from issue 1 with his artwork and "cleaned up" story lines.

    Dude, I want both! (and Red Hand of Doom for 1E could be great, I agree)

    True, which is why I'm probably going to directly donate some funds to the memorial myself (should have a long time ago) because the books cost more than I can justify spending on them. However, I've seen people complain about contributory deals like this before, which doesn't make sense to me. If someone doesn't find it worth it, they shouldn't buy it. I think it's a pretty awesome thing, myself.

    As a newly, self-proclaimed D&D archaeologist, I applaud this action by WotC
    "It is important to keep in mind that, after all is said and done, ADVANCED DUNGEONS & DRAGONS is a game. Because it is a game, certain things which seem "unrealistic" or simply unnecessary are integral to the system."
