Some Cheap Acquisitions

For a variety of reasons, I found myself first at one used bookstore and then another, both of which had wargaming and roleplaying books.  I succumbed to temptation and picked up a few items.

Warhammer Ancients and Chariot Wars:  I picked up my second copy of WAB for a friend in hopes of perhaps someday doing historical wargaming.  Chariot Wars interested me not just because it was dirt-cheap, but also because I have sometimes dreamed of doing a Hyborian-inspired map campaign.

Monster Manual 2: this is the original AD&D MM2, not one of the later ones.  It’s a weird collection of monsters, but includes the first appearance of some iconic D&D monsters like the aboleth, tarrasque, and thri-keen.  I picked it up because of my current OSG kick, but it’ll probably not see any action any time soon.

Space Marine Codex: this is probably not the latest one, but since the most recent is practically a reprint, and I hardly play 40K, who cares?  Again, cheap.

At present, I’m seriously considering a very old RPG, but not D&D–West End Games’ Star Wars RPG.  I’ll let you know more if it comes to pass.


  1. First, Happy Christmas and long time no talk to!

    Definitely post whether you get into the WEG Star Wars. I ran/played in several WEG campaigns (even used their Master Series rules for a 40k rpg) and it remains one of my all time favorite rpgs and still the one that really captures that Star Wars flavor.
