If I had $1,000,000

Actually, how about this:
You have $100 to spend on RPG’s… for your entire life. What do you buy?
Assume you have no existing RPG library, and include any CCG’s you play.
Big Eyes, Small Mouth Revised 2nd Edition – $16 on ebay, mint.
Star Wars Revised Core Rulebook – $24 on ebay, mint
SpyCraft Espionage Guide d20 – $20 on ebay, mint.
Oriental Adventures d20 – $17 on ebay, mint.
Everything else (this includes Amber (available on eBay for $10 right now), the core d20 SRD, and the beta version of Silver Age Sentinels) is available online in some free incarnation or another — it may not be formatted beautifully or ‘finished’, but if I only had 100 bucks to spend lifetime, it would have to do.
Leaves me twenty-three bucks to buy pizza and soda with.
How about you?


  1. I search the bargain bins more than Ebay, but these are still about right. On the other hand, I don’t think I could live with just these games. (laughing) This is probably the “minimum set to argue with…”
    Nightlife (Spectrum Games) 2nd Edition: $10
    Shadowrun (FASA, now WizKids) 1st Edition: $5
    Pendragon, 3rd Edition: $8
    Call of C’thulhu, 3rd Edition: $9
    Winninger’s Underground: $15
    Paranoia (Can’t remember which edition): $8
    GURPS Supers (older edition): $7
    1st Ed AD&D Players + GM’s Guide: $14
    (The copy with my dad’s highlighting? Priceless.)
    Werewolf (1st Ed): $9
    HoL: $15

  2. I couldn’t function without Everway–I need it for House of Cards–but after that it gets awfully sticky. Probably Champions and one of the WW games next. No DnD, though; I have the old homebrew system my ex worked on and the one-page cheat-sheet version we ended up with for all that.
    I can say this: I’d never buy period supplements, because there’s just so much of that stuff available on the web.
