I'm curious about the Free League sale. I've already got the Coriolis core book, Twilight 2000 boxed set, and everything for Forbidden Lands they've published.
Is there a must-have that I'm missing? (I lean mostly to fantasy in my gaming - and I've heard some bad things about the design of Symbaroum.)
