So we got an email a few weeks ago from our friends J & R saying that they would like to restart our D&D game again. I have no ideas what the details were since I wasn’t actually on the email list (rather odd), but The Hubbs told me the gyst of things and we kinda went from there.
Since J&R don’t have nearly as crazy a life as they did last year with having a farmer’s market stand and a garden outside the city to upkeep on their own to supply the veggies as well as the garden they have at the house, they are hoping to get some sort of regular D&D schedule going.
They’re looking at once every two weeks, which seems reasonable enough. Since we missed the last gaming session, things have changed slightly. I don’t know why, I didn’t think to ask to be honest, but we’re no longer playing with the brand spanking new edition. Instead, they have decided to go back in time and work with the first edition books from the mid 80’s. Wow.
To be honest, I’m actually quite pleased with this — I was really uncomfortable with the new books and didn’t like the way my character ended up being and the rules seemed rather bizzarre to me. So now we’re going back to basics, so to speak. I still have Tiny Bubbles, but she is no longer a warlock, she’s a mage. Yay Mage! :D
Unfortunately we didn’t get a LOT of gaming in yesterday since everyone was sorta playing catch-up in having to re-create their characters on paper with new stats and stuff, so there was a lot of sitting around twiddling thumbs as people had to share the one player’s handbook.
Here’s where I’m hoping my fantastic LJ world comes in. I’m looking for this:
First Edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Player’s Handbook
First Edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Unearthed Arcana
I’m kind of hoping that someone out there has a copy of these that they’d be willing to part with and I could buy off them. I realize that a lot of people hold onto books for sentimental reasons and I totally understand. But if on the off chance someone might be in the midst of purging some old stuff and happen to have these books on hand that they are willing to part with — I’d love to give them a good home.
I have a feeling that there is a pretty small likelihood that this exists in any of my friends’ collections, but I thought I would put it out there on the off chance I would be wrong.
