Meme: Only Ten

I just saw that at Untimately's blog: "If you could only keep ten of your printed RPG books, which would you pick?"

That is at once difficult and easy... let's see: I am going to follow the rules that Untimately followed: I have to own it and I value the content of the book. I am going to treat boxed sets as one single item.

  • AD&D 1st Edition Players Handbook Premium Reprint (nostalgia & useable rules)
  • AD&D 1st Edition Dungeon Masters Guide Premium Reprint (nostalgia & useable rules)
  • AD&D 1st Edition Monster Handbook Premium Reprint (nostalgia & useable rules)
  • Dark Sun Original Boxed Set (sentimental value, art work and innovation)
  • World of Darkness Rulebook
  • Vampire: The Requiem (most popular game in my gaming group)
  • Dark Ages Vampire Limited Edition (if I keep it, I keep the best I have; I like Vampire: The Dark Ages better, but the mechanics are more solid)
  • V20 Anniversary Edition
  • Titan - The Fighting Fantasy World (original, not reprint)
  • Out of the Pit - Fighting Fantasy Monsters (original, not reprint)
So as you can see, my love for RPGs is split between AD&D, Vampire and Fighting Fantasy.

I am glad that Dungeon World isn't out yet, because it will displace one of those books.

  1. The original Dark Sun boxed set is great.

    I'm not very familiar with Fighting Fantasy, but that Out of the Pit book looks promising.
