  1. This will go a long way towards bringing back into the fold (or at least appeasing) the old school crowd. I applaud WotC for this and would encourage them to make more 1st ed(and others) content available to the public.

  2. Yes, it's a BLAST from the PAST!

    All of those FABULOUSLY classic modules have been MAGNIFICENTLY repackaged (like those INCREDIBLE AD&D core books). Now, they're once again available… at OUR WONDERFULLY MODERN DAY PRICES!

    Isn't THAT exciting?!

  3. Just can't win.

    When WotC removed the pdf's of older material from circulation, they were castigated.

    When they say they may once more make those older materials available in some to-be-determined format, GW castigates them.

    I'm all for calling Wizards on the carpet when they do wrong, but you're just being unreasonable, my friend.

  4. Well, Grendelwulf pretty much said what I wanted to say, so I'll take a different route. I'll believe WotC will give us back the older edition stuff in pdf form or print the day it happens, and not a moment sooner.

    It's nice that the designers have their heart in it, but I don't trust the 800 pound gorilla called Hasbro.

  5. If/when WizBro re-releases the (good) old stuff, I'm sure they'll also release some conversion documents to help us translate both to and fro 5e.

  6. Hey, great! They'll be in game stores, so I'll pick 'em up. *I* have all the stuff I want, but some friends would enjoy the rules/modules/supplements as gifts.

    In that vein, I hope 'other Editions' means White Box, Holmes, B/X, BECMI, and RC D&Ds and their adventures.

    Lol at 'do it right' for 'Wizards', it's Hasbro that has to sign off on it! 😉

    This is a good step forward for Wizbro, but if they want more of *my* cash, they need to come out with *new* stuff that I can use with B/X(LL) and/or AD&D 2. Adventures in particular would be great. I mean, it works for Paizo, right? 🙂

    Thanx for posting!

  7. Sounding promising!

    The one thing I hope is that they publish the older material *unmodified*, rather than "D&D Next Compatible" reworkings of classics.

  8. Sounds good to me. I'm in whenever they release. It's awesome that the old editions are coming back into print.

    I also have to say I'm glad to see that the vocal minority aren't just showing up on my blog to rant about how horrible anyone is who posts anything remotely favorable about the nefarious Evil Empire.
