Okay, so I'm reading 4E, like I said. While I'll play it, I think that some of the criticism of it is valid. It is very boardgame-y, and I'm not sure about the classes, and so forth.
So, I took the opportunity to score a set of the 3rd ed core books (PHB, MM, DMG) off ebay for $15, shipped.
And then I saw pathfinder. Apparently, the fine folks at Paizo have taken the OGL content and decided that it can be improved continued. I like this idea.
Oh, and apparently, they have the rights to sell the Alternity back catalog as PDFs, which is also very nice.
Of course, I scored the Alternity PHB, Gamemaster's Guide, plus a pile of other sourcebooks for like $50.
I love compuermachines. Nothing goes out of print.
Of course, my printer is running about 7 years old, and has maybe 50k pages through it, and is making a godawful whining noise. So, I need me one of these.. and the duplexing unit doesn't hurt when printing books.
