I took vacation today because it is my birthday. I just felt like chilling at the house instead of busting my hump. I caught up on some Netflix viewing that I had wanted to do so I was wondering what to do next. Then it dawned on me that the children were in school so a trip to the FLGS would not have to be rushed or spent monitoring their browsing activity.
I went to Wizard's Asylum in Tulsa, Oklahoma. There are other hobby stores in the area but I specifically wanted to look for the products of Palladium Books®. I looked at all of the products before I decided to get the following three books:
Dead Reign™ Sourcebook Three: Endless Dead™
Dead Reign™ Sourcebook Four: Fear the Reaper™
Rifts® Sourcebook One™ - Revised and Expanded
I bought the two Dead Reign™ books for 50% off. There were other copies on the shelf at full price. I have no idea why they were marked down. I could not tell the difference between the condition of the ones I purchased and the ones on the shelf. Maybe it was over-stock? Maybe they were browsing copies? Maybe they were "gently used" by the store for a game night, demo, or something else? I have no idea but I do have a complete run of the published Dead Reign™ books.
At one time I had the original version of Rifts® Sourcebook One™ but no longer. I am basically starting over on my Palladium Books® collection. I had numerous books but decided to trim down my collection. I seriously advise doing this unless you are absolutely certain you will never want to use those books again! I got rid of everything but the Rifts® Ultimate Edition™ I have kept for all of these years. I have a recurring urge to use Rifts® and open it up every now and then to start planning. Now the time is right to get serious about it so I have started planning some purchases for a campaign starting off in the West involving vampires, bandits, etc. I even signed up to be a Megaversal® Ambassador and I will have some news on events or demos on that front soon.
