In honor of the game that inspired the game that inspired yesterday’s big OSR blogosphere thingy, here’s a passel of heavily-filtered photos of bits and pieces from my cherished Original Collector’s Edition of the OD&D box:
I wish I’d taken better care of the box itself, but the books are all in pretty solid shape. You’re seeing shadows far more than any damage to the books themselves.
I never owned print copies of any of the supplements, which is why, despite owning one of these, I’m all but certain to give in and purchased WotC’s reprint edition when it comes out in November.
Oh, and for the record, I never referred to these as the LBBs (little brown books). That acronym means something entirely different to me. Tune in tomorrow to find out what.
