Here Come the 2nd Edition Reprints

Looks like May of 2013 will see the return of the original 2nd edition core rulebooks with the same repritn treatment that the 1E books got:

And also a hardcover edition of Against the Slave Lords and S1-S4 which is an innovation in term of reprints, as far as I can tell.

Can the Rules Cyclopedia be far behind?

  1. Hard covers of the A and S series is actually very cool.

    Not sure if I will get the 2nd reprints. IF they are the 2nd printings (the ones with the mostly black covers) then I might.

  2. Aww yiss!

    I'm with Brannan here, a hardcover A/S series does sound cool. It's still too early to tell if I WANT them though.
    I'd much rather have 2e reprints than 3.5 btw.

  3. Wow, 2nd edition is no longer the red headed step child of D&D I suppose.

    Be interesting to see which printing of the 2nd edition materials they use for their reprints at the very least.

  4. For the modules, what is the actual physical object going to be like? How is a hardcover of a module like Barrier Peaks, with a separate art booklet, going to work with 3 other modules bound to it?

  5. The one thing that sets the RC apart from the other books is the decorative border around the pages. Even the 2E books are printed on white pages. I imagine this represents quite a challenge to re-create. But, it seems the call for an RC is pretty loud, so perhaps WotC will listen…
