In case you somehow miss the news in all of the other thousands of places where it has been (or will be) announced… PDFs of old D&D material (including AD&D, AD&D 2e, and more) are now available for legal purchase from RPGNow.
Apparently the titles that are currently available are only the first wave of releases and (many) more will be coming, so if you don’t see the thing you’re looking for, don’t despair just yet.
Now then, if you’l excuse me, I think I need to wander off and acquire a copy of Against The Giants.
It’s a beautiful thing! I just snagged the first 2 installments of the Saltmarsh series myself . . .
Excellent! Enjoy them, amigo. Just as soon as I get home from work I’ll be spending madly, no doubt.
I bought the Hidden Shrine of Tamaochan, the 1e Manual of the Planes, and the Crusades historical sourcebook for 2e. If they keep putting pdfs up for sale for cheap, Imma keep throwing money at them.
Excellent choices all, amigo. Enjoy them for all they’re worth. I’m sure WOTC has just opened up a revenue stream that they can’t figure out why they had shut down in the first place 🙂
Here’s to many more tiny holes in my bank account!
Cool! First I’ve heard about it. I just commented elsewhere that it would be cool if WOtC came out with a new boxed Moldvay set. This might be a nice runner up.
Glad to be the bearer of good news, Narmer. Between my existing books and Labyrinth Lord I don’t actually need the Moldvay Basic PDF, but you can be sure I’m adding it to my digital collection.
