Friday Discussion: Holiday Wish Lists

It’s time for our first November Friday Discussion! We all know about the Christmas Creep—each year, sales and preparation for Christmas (my favorite holiday of the year) start a little earlier.

Sadly, RPG Blog 2 is no exception. It’s after Halloween, I heard Christmas music on the radio last night, and the department stores have had the Christmas stock out for awhile now. So, here’s this week’s question:

What RPG Products Do You Want For Christmas or the Holidays?

If you want to sound a little selfish, let us know what you're thinking about for the gamer on your shopping list. Whether you celebrate the Holidays or not, let us know what’s on your wish list this year!

That's an excellent question that I think I'm going to have to dwell on some. Almost anything gaming related would be fantastic. It would almost have to be something that I wouldn't normally buy myself or be something that's cool and interesting but nothing I'd normally spend money on.

Of course being a bit of an old school guy as of late, I'd almost say anything from the neo-classical movement would be cool.

All of this depends on people knowing that your a gaming person in the first place. Something that many of use don't hide but don't go out of our way to advertise either (even to family).

Dragon Age crpg.

I have Dragon Age for my console (and it is awesome). Would love to get the Dragon Age rpg. So far, it looks like a fun world to adventure in.

posted part of my christmas list yesterday on my blog. I'm after Diaspora RPG (a hard-science fiction rpg), Dragon Warriors' "The Prince of Darkness" adventure, Otherworld Miniatures' Orcs, Labyrinth Lord and S&W, and Dungeon Alphabet. Still on the fence Re: Thousand Suns, I may wait until they re-release it in early 2010.

I have more RPGs on my shelf than I have time to play right now. So I guess all I'm really missing is the 4e DMG2. I can't justify buying it for myself, but I've heard enough good things to want to check it out.

I've got a huge list, but I don't ask my family and loved ones for gaming gifts. It's just too specific. However, there are two books on page layout and design that I want to get and I'll put them on my list.

My birthday is in early December, so I have two lists. My BDay list has two items: (1) The Dungeon Alphabet and (2) Points of Light. I put the more urgent items on that list.

My Christmas list includes: Ultimate Toolbox and some nice wines for my cellar. I am looking forward to Victorious from Brave Halfling Publishing, but that's in 2010.

@Paladin: You should see if you can get in on the Thousand Suns Revised playtest. That alone might help you decide.

The 4th Edition Books for D&D could be cool, as I don't own any of them.

or the Pathfinder books so I can figure out what the big deal about them is.

or something else that is equally awesome.

I want a set of platinum dice, with the numbers and pips made from sapphires. I'm still waiting on those, though.

On the more realistic front, I want anything Savage Worlds. Perhaps the Deadlands core book or Low Life.

Norman Harman said...

I'm taking the question to be "What thing I wish existed."

That would be a supplement broadly compatible with older D&D's, say LL or C&C. Containing all the tools, advice, and enticement on running Western Marches sandbox with explicit connections/portals to everyone elses Western Marches sandbox.

Further, I wish that supplement takes hobby by storm and everyone is campaign jumping online, at cons, and within their local game scene.

One can wish.
