Yeah, I really like Citadel and Fortress, so I am eager to get this too. Dare I say it? I think they are huge improvements over the originals with the quality production and I like the additional stuff.
As heretical as that is, I tend to agree with you Treebore. I too like the additional material that fleshes out what was there in the original versions. I'm running Caverns of Thracia currently, and while the adventure still has a lot to get your hands around, the d20 version has been a huge help to me as the DM.
Now to hope Tegal Manor comes out next July. Yes, I know who is producing that one. It will be interesting to see it in full color. I have a feeling I will be glad I have the original maps for that one, but I'll wait and see. There have been a fair number of gorgeous full color maps in 3E.
Like I said on the Necromancer boards, I'm sure I'll get Tegel Manor when it does come out. I'd have preferred it in d20 instead of 4E, but that's life.
In the case of these updates of Judges Guild adventures, having a full color presentation doesn't really do much for me. It doesn't say "old school" or "first edition" to me. In fact, full color kind of makes me think of the beginnings of the end of first edition era and the beginning of the second edition era.
So, yeah, I'm glad I have copies of the original TM maps, too. Heck, I even like the maps in the Gamescience version of TM. They're b&w on white paper instead of the beige paper that JG used.
