An argument for neo-oldschool games.

Time to dust off the old cliche that a picture's worth a thousand words.

Check out the picture of the battered (and battled!) Labyrinth Lord book posted on my forums here. Notice the battered LL book next to pristine Moldvay/Cook books? I don't know about you, but I'd rather abuse a fresh copy of Labyrinth Lord. They'll always be available!

Yep. That's exactly why I sold my two 1974 D&D boxed sets. I was afraid they'd get damaged if I used them in a game, and they weren't doing any good just sitting on my shelf, so I sold them for a total of $238.

Now I use a self-edited and printed rulebook of the Swords & Wizardry: Whitebox rules. Now I have no worries!
