No work today, as it’s National Day here in Sweden, and I thought I might blog a little…
Following my own advice from last week’s blog post, I’ve started to prune my gaming collection, selling off games and supplements that probably never will be used at my game table.
I’ve started this before but never quite “finished”. This summer, however, I will get rid of a lot of stuff: several editions of RuneQuest (RQ3, Mongoose RQ1, maybe RQ6), most AD&D 2e stuff, a lot of OSR stuff (mainly rule books), several editions of Traveller (Traveller T4, Traveller: The New Era, MegaTraveller) + a lot of mixed RPG stuff that I’ve collected over the years.
(I’m chiefly selling these books here in Sweden, but if any of you international people are interested, I ship worldwide as well).
And it feels good to get rid of all these things! It’s Zen at it’s finest 🙂
So what will I save?
- OpenQuest 2*
- Mongoose RuneQuest 2 (now known as Legend*, with the Glorantha stuff filed off)
- River of Heaven*
- Call of Cthulhu (6th and 7th editions)
- Renaissance/Clockwork & Chivalry*
- Basic Role-playing (Big gold book)
- Delta Green*
- Chaosium RuneQuest 2**
- Dungeons & Dragons 5e*
- Castles & Crusades
- Blood & Treasure* (the only OSR game I’ll keep)
- AD&D 1e**
- Mongoose Traveller 1e*
- 2300AD (GDW & Mongoose)
- Cepheus Engine*
Warhammer Fantasy Roleplay
- WFRP 2e
*= Open game system (or open-ish at least)
Between these remaining games/systems, I think I can cover most genres and playing styles.
I will also keep most setting books for whatever system they were originally written for – good for stealing stuff and/or getting inspiration.
I will also keep all monster books.
You can NEVER have too many monster books 😉
