As far from splurging as you can get realistically but I did just receive Mythras for my birthday; not sure what to do with it although I do have Monster Island and Book Of Quests on a hard-drive somewhere. I'm adding Design Mechanism to the list of companies due to receive a "do you realise your clientele is probably 40+ with dodgy mince pies" list.

And, heaven's above, but I spent a mighty £3 on Ice for Fate. Post apocalyptic survival grime explorer freezing cold shamanic animal eating power gaining stuff and nonsense. Or something like that.

Aside from picking up the Fate Accelerated Edition of the Dresden Files (out of sheer curiosity about the way they've handled the system integration with the setting), I also picked up the 3rd edition of DragonQuest on eBay for a tenner because. Yeah, just because.

Since I last posted in this thread (Seven Hills time), I have bought:

Coriolis
Unknown Armies 2e
The play book of Unknown Armies 3e (excusable since I'll soon be playing, right?)
World War Cthulhu: Cold War
Blades in the Dark
Mutant City Blues
Mage: The Ascension 2e
The Edom Files (for Night's Black Agents)
The Humble Bundle containing a goodly fraction of all the Doctor Who RPG PDFs for c.$15
Bree (for the One Ring)

Thanks to SJE, I also have a copy of Sagas of the Icelanders.

Erm....who wants to play a game with me?

Graham, it seems Fantasy Flight Games has you addicted. It is a common but also nice problem to have.

I started with Age of Rebellion, but including smugglers in my games was too cool to skip, especially adventures in "hives of scum and villainy", so I had to acquire Edge of the Empire too.

And of course, once I had those two, no collection would have been complete without the Jedi of Force and Destiny.

I tried to skip the trap of getting all the sourcebooks, and focused on collecting just the ones I use most often (though every FFG sourcebook has some cool new species/races for player characters).

I've been on a bit of a splurge as well:

Backed the Yellow King, and then this: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nocturnalmedia/paladin-warriors-of-charlemagne for the full hardback, including an extra $45 for a printed copy of King Arthur Pendragon 5.2, plus a fiver for dice.

Had a mini splurge on Star Wars stuff as well as I've finally given in and bought Imperial Assault, which in turn got me more interested in the FFG RPG, so re-read the Age of Rebellion Beginners game, and now trying to resist buying the full core book!

I really like d6 Star Wars, but interpreting the FFG dice rolls is fun.

I backed Paladins as well, I was going to wait but...

I couldn't resist that backer number... :twisted:

I've got KAP 5.1 HB and 5.2 pdf so I just went for the pdf, those dice are lovely though and I think I can hear them calling my name (if my name was 'buy me').

That is the best sort of knight, the one with 666 on the heraldry. Well done, j0rdi.

Very pretty hardcopy of my Furnace Slot 0 game arrived...

As did my guilt fueled Powered by the Apocalypse Kickstarter. It only arrived a day after it went on retail release, crazily late.

I recently buckled and decided I want to get back into Travelelr again (after burning out on it some time ago), so I've gone into the Great Rift KS at the level to get the books, too.
