DCC and the old days

Post by darkon_turas » Mon Feb 12, 2007 5:00 pm

I've got several of the original modules that the DCC design was based on and when I look at these I so much wished that they had the lamination that the DCCs do. There would be so much less degradation if they did. The smell of the paper when they came fresh out of the shrink wrap is different as well. I used to be a connisure of RPG books and could tell the age of the publication by scent. I am such a geek.

Totally. I'm still amazed, though, at the cover/binding quality of the 1e AD&D DMG. How the heck did Gygax get up the money to pull that off?

I know! The binding was far superior to the 2nd edition book. Not one of them gave in all these years, unlike the 2nd edition books which gave out all the time.

The original, colored-endpapers versions of the DMG, PHB, and MM were in fact of even sturdier construction than the later 3rd revised DMG, 6th printing PHB, "4th" MM, etc. You could use those bindings to disarm swordsmen without fearing harm to your books :D

Tome of Infinite Punishment, in all senses of the phrase. It could both take it, and dish it out.
