It was a good day. I hit NYC, ran a couple of errands, then joined Erik Tenkar of Tenkar's Tavern fame, for a run of a few stores and beer and burgers. First we hit The Strand bookstore. I think they call themselves the world's largest used bookstore. I looked for older Moorcock books and the like, and came up empty, but Erik found an old book by Gygax.
Next stop was the Compleat Strategist. World's best gaming store. I picked up the three AD&D reprints, as well as the ACKS hardcover. Yeah, I could have gotten it off Amazon cheaper, but what the hell. Have to support the FLGS, you know? I also mentioned to Erik that I would love to get the original Traveler books, and he pulled the reprints off the shelf for me. Perfect!
Next up was a pub (with shamrocks on the outside, so you know its got to be good) right across the street from the CS. Great Burger, Great Beer, and Great Bullshit session. After a half dozen beers and a few shots, his son picked him up, and I walked it off to Washington Square Park, then took a cab up to Grand Central and took the train home. Great day.
Love the reprints, btw.
Great job WOTC. There's something I thought I'd never say.
