Yesterday, as I was cleaning up my RPG collection (more on that tomorrow) I was thinking about all the different kinds of D&D I have on my shelf. I’ve got my old D&D Rules Cyclopedia sitting next to a copy of Swords & Wizardry. My old 3.5 D&D core books (and the couple of supplements I've kept from that edition) sit next to the Pathfinder core rulebook. Every single one of those product is support with print and pdf products, if I want them. I know my friends that enjoy 4e can say the same. Kobold Quarterly, Knockspell, Fight On!—the quality support doesn’t end. And that’s not counting newer favorites, such as the awesome Chronica Feudalis: Blue Knight Edition, Warrior, Rogue, & Mage, and Shadow, Sword & Spell. I don’t need to look far for support or a game to play.
And to top it all off, a bag of Gamescience dice sits next to it all, infused with the implied precision-edge blessing of Louis Zocchi himself, ready to be broken out on the table at a moment's notice.
Yep, it’s a pretty awesome time to be a gamer, regardless of your edition of choice.
