How WOTC Can Get My Money
Wizards of the Coast is reprinting the D&D 3.5 core books. Interestingly, they are actually fixing the errata, so the new printings will be a useful purchase for anybody still playing un-Pathfindered 3.5.
Is there anybody who does that?
I bought the 3.5 core books at Half-Price Books right after 4E came out. I ran one horribly disastrous group campaign and one clumsy-ass duet campaign with them. For the most part, it just convinced me of my bias toward point-buy/skill-based systems rather than class/level systems.
There is, however, one condition under which I would happily buy new printings of the 3.5 books – a condition under which I suspect another 14,951 people would, too – and that’s if they did a licensed Order of the Stick edition.
I might even try running it again.
(Admittedly, I already plan on buying Ed Greenwood Presents: Elminster's Forgotten Realms. I'm a sucker for the idea of unadulterated Ed Greenwood. And it comes out on my birthday! And then I'll run it with Savage Worlds!)
