Whistling In The Graveyard

And time for another weird project!

Yes, it's been a while. Piss off.

Anyways, I used to play Dungeons and Dragons a lot. I mean a LOT. You're shocked, I can tell. I haven't played in several years now though, due to an unfortunate incident, but I was playing just a few years ago at The Guardtower on Bethel road. It's an awesome game store and I recommend it if you're into gaming. I haven't been back there since... well, lets just leave it at that. I haven't been back there in a while.

But I wasn't playing MY D&D then. I was playing one of the new ones. Third edition I think. Anything that came after TSR was bought by Wizards of the coast is NOT real D&D.

I started playing D&D in about 1986 or 87 with the original red box and eventually moved on to Advanced Dungeons and Dragons, also known as D&D 2.0 and then 2.5. I love them both, but Advanced D&D was an improvement and we played the shit out of it. As a result, it left my Players Handbook in something of a state. Well I found it the other day.

Not very pretty. So I decided to do something about it. With some scraps of cloth and leather and a shitlosad of binder clips...

I ended up with this:

Book 007 photo Book007_zpse7d6eceb.jpg

So to sum up, I took an abused gaming manual from a version of the game that people don't play anymore and that I personally haven't played in ANY form in a few years and I bound it in leather CAUSE THAT'S HOW I ROLL.

Actually, it's kinda making me want to play again. Maybe it's time.

Oh, and to those of you who are concerned, it's not real leather and it was recycled anyway.

I'm just now getting into tabletop RPGs. I found Pathfinder at PAX-East and my friends and I are going to do some sessions soon. Can't wait!

I haven't tried Pathfinder yet, but I hear good things. I'm actually working on an RPG of my own. If I ever finish it I'll send you a copy.

I have already told you, that if you wish, may join in on our Pathfinder follies. We have loads of fun especially when certain players are altered out of their minds lol.
