I started playing Dungeons and Dragons way back in the early 80's. I still remember getting my dad to take me to a B. Dalton bookstore to buy my original basic and expert Dungeons and Dragons sets.
I still have some of those original materials but a lot I have sold off over the years. One of the main reasons for selling off old materials is that I have come to grips with the fact that I will never play those games again. Sad as that may be to read, it is true.
I have moved on to other games in this timespan. HackMaster is one such game I have moved on to. I don't play that as often as I would like but I do play it.
The thing about selling off the old stuff is that those old adventures were just collecting dust in my attic. They were also worth money. Enough money to buy my new Wii! So I sold them off.
I didn't sell everything though. I kept some of the choice adventures and the hardcover rulebooks, some things you just do not want to sell. I also only sold things that I know I can acquire in a PDF format for less than what I sold the item for. That way, if I ever want to run the adventure again, I can just order the PDF.
I still have my original basic and expert Dungeons and Dragons sets, I don't think I'll ever part with those two books.
What about you? I know there are gamers in my audience, let's geek out and talk D&D!
