Crafter of fine role-playing games
The one outlier is Holmes Basic D&D, which for some reason hasn't been added to the D&D Classics catalogue in PDF or PoD. That's the main reason I first wrote a retroclone for it (well, it started out as an errata document, and then it snowballed). I and fellow admirers of Dr J. Eric Holmes's gaming still regularly petition WotC to correct this oversight, but no luck so far.[...] For example, the retro that I want to play is BECM/Rules Cyclopedia, and it's available electrinically on DriveThruRPG for $10, or Print-On-Demand for $21. [...] The point I'm trying to make is: if you want to play an older edition of D&D, you can play that older edition. You don't need to house-rule the latest edition, you don't need to sell your group on a completely new game. The older editions are still there, still playable, and still just as fun as you remember.
