Giving the Gift of Old-School

My gamer budy found RPGs late in life.  Not playing any until adult hood.  He's on a bit of a quest to make up for lost time and explore what he missed.  So, for his belated birthday gift I got him a bit of old old-school and new old-school. 

Collectors set of D&D Endless Quest books

  1. I applaud your choices. Those Endless Quest books kept me quite entertained in my younger days and I still use a few of the tricks I learned from them in my games.

    That other book's O.K. too, I guess.

  4. Yup, it was a great gift. I'm already through the first of the books. Growing up in a small town in the buckle of the bible belt, meant I was starved for role-playing goodness. These and other books like them were all I had to scratch that itch for a long time.

    The Dungeon Alphabet's also a blast! Great art, and the random tables are a hoot.

  5. My bad memory and long delay in shipping meant presents were already month late. Still, it was hard not to delay them a little longer so I could "play through" those books.

    Glad you're diggin the gifts Flip.
