Pretty cool. My white box set is one of my favorite game possessions, along with my first printing Deities & Demigods. Maybe they'll print some of the books alone? I don't have the Greyhawk supplement, which always annoyed me, since it's my favorite setting.
Well, I can't claim great virtue on the White Box -- my dad got it. And I got lucky with the Deities & Demigods and got it for $20 used about 20 years ago. I have kept the stuff I actually bought, though I have thought about selling off my 2e stuff. If anyone would be willing to buy it.
I think it cool that WOTC is reprinting O D&D. The reprint will be missing things like certain Tolkein references. The Conan and Elric material will be missing from Gods, Demi Gods , and Heroes because of copyright. I hope it sells well.Damn! I really envy people who still have that stuff! Saves them doing what I've been doing the last couple of years - scouring eBay to rebuild my gaming memories. I honestly don't know what happened to much of it - I didn't consciously get rid of it, and never really stopped gaming.
I'm hoping for a Rules Cyclopedia and Creature Catalogue. The Basic RC is one of the few books where they could reprint it at modern prices and it would be cheaper to buy that a used copy from eBay.Tempting.
I'm still hoping for more 1E or BD&D releases, like the Fiend Folio, Monster Manual II and the B series of modules.
Yeah, that's a luxury item for sure.
Don't sell it. You know in 20 years you'll be on GoogleTweetBook++++Tube saying "Hey, that 2E reprint Wizards of the White Mongoose Pathfinding Space Rockets is doing is making me want to hit z-Bay for my old stuff!"
