The TSR Reprints I Want...
With all of these reprints from the old AD&D lines of various editions, I got to thinking what I would like to see if Wizards of the Coast just opened up the reprints to the entire TSR back catalog instead of the AD&D items. Here is what I would like to see...
B/X D&D: For many people this is the pinnacle of D&D gaming. I would be happy with reprinted box sets that included the modules originally shipped with the product or even a combined hardbound book with the Basic rule book followed by the Expert rules. Many of the old timers cut their teeth on these rules and I think many of them would jump at the chance to replace their old battered copies. I know I would!
D&D Rules Cyclopedia: I would personally rather see this reprinted than the individual boxed sets from the BECMI line of products. Of course, I would like all of the errors fixed because there are a ton of them in this manual.
Gamma World: My favorite version continues to be the original. I have messed with most other editions but I have never even flipped through a second edition set. I hear that second edition is actually just a better organized and cleaned up version of first edition. If that is so then I would pick up a reprinted second edition. Hell, just reprint both editions.
Unearthed Arcana: Just because of the crappy binding from the original; mine literally fell apart after a short period of use.
There is probably more that I would like to see reprinted but that is a good start. That list above would probably keep me pretty satisfied for quite some time.
What would you like to see reprinted if Wizards opened up the entire TSR back catalog?
