    1st Edition Premium Unearthed Arcana Reprint

    A bunch of people have emailed me this link (thanks to you all) - an Amazon page referring to a 1st Edition Premium Unearthed Arcana hardcover reprint slated for February 19, 2013. It's on Amazon [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Edition-Premium-Unearthed-Arcana-Accessory/dp/0786964448/"]here[/ame].

    Unearthed Arcana was published in 1985 and witten by Gary Gygax. It included new races (drow, svirfneblin), classes (barbarian, cavalier, thief-acrobat), and a wide selection of new rules.

    1. The link takes me to a 404 page. Searching Amazon for "unearthed arcana premium" brought me [ame="http://www.amazon.com/Edition-Premium-Unearthed-Arcana-Accessory/dp/0786964448/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1348060501&sr=8-1&keywords=Unearthed+arcana+premium"]this[/ame].
    2. If this is real, does it include the errata from Dragon #103 (IIRC)? For $50, it would be an insult to not include it.

    I am REALLY glad to see them doing reprints, but afaic, this is one where I do not understand the want factor, and have a hard time believing there is a big enough demand among old school AD&D players for it. It is generally poorly received. Having a quality binding of course would be a plus, but if you hunt around you can buy 3 decent used copies for what they are asking.

    At any rate, HEY WOTC! I hope we will see a reprint of the original box set, Greyhawk, Blackmoor, Eldritch Wizardry, and GDgH. That is something I would lay out some coin for as I sold my copies years ago when I needed cash. Shoved all into a heavy page count 6x9 Hardcover would be great. Get on that, K? thxbye

    Online, maybe. I never met anyone in real life back in the day who received it poorly. I, for one, was hoping UA would be reprinted.

    I was referring to my actual experiences. I do not take into account ENworld or other internet nerd rage. If that was the case I would never have played any version of the game for longer than one session as they all clearly suck in every way imaginable.

    Agreed. I for one love UA. Yes, there are things in it I do not use, or use after some house ruling, but I do use a lot of UA and always have. I also already have this pre ordered on Amazon.
    It is the spirit of the game, not the letter of the rules, which is important. NEVER hold to the letter written, nor allow some barracks room lawyer to force quotations from the rule book upon you, IF it goes against the obvious intent of the game. As you hew the line with respect to conformity to major systems and uniformity of play in general, also be certain the game is mastered by you and not by your players. Within the broad parameters give in the Advanced Dungeons and Dragons Volumes, YOU are creator and final arbiter. By ordering things as they should be, the game as a WHOLE first, your CAMPAIGN next, and your participants thereafter, you will be playing Advanced Dungeons and Dragons as it was meant to be. May you find as much pleasure in so doing as the rest of us do.

    This would suggest that the reprints have sold well. The 1st ed books flew off the shelves where I live. The 3.5 ones are still there, but some have sold. Granted that LGS has a big Pathfinder following.

    There is also the D&D 3.5 Premium Spell Compendium [ame="http://www.amazon.com/3-5-Premium-Spell-Compendium-Accessory/dp/0786964480/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1348061584&sr=1-1"]here[/ame]

    One thing about UA is that unlike the original three core books, most copies were very poorly bound and didn't last for several decades, or even years. There may be dedicated 1e gamers whose copy has fallen apart.
    Currently selling my D&D collection in Moscow--see the Legacy forums.

    My copy had binding problems, too, that cropped up soon after I bought it new when it was published. I took care of it, but I knew of some that fell apart.

    I'm guessing this reprint will be bound just as the other 1e reprints were. So far, those seem pretty sturdy to me. I've been able to find original copies of various printings going for much less than the reprints, too, so that's not a factor for me with UA.
