First up: Yes. I know I owe you all a Part 2 of the OSR is Dead. But many of you made a lot of the points I was going to.
I also know I missed White Dwarf Wednesday. I was away from my machine all day.
So instead a drive by post. With pictures.
So here is my Gen Con 2012 haul. I also picked up some things here for my kids.
Here we have all the books, minis (love that Gelatinous Cube) and swag.
I picked up a way cool game, Monsterhearts (pdf), that I want to talk about in much detail later. Also my new ConX 2.0 book, Zenner cards and screen.
I got my two copies of Castles & Crusades from Troll Lord and Jason Vey's Amazing "Amazing Adventures". Again, I want to talk about that one in detail too. I picked up a replacement GURPS Horror (lost it years ago) and GURPS Castle Falkenstein.
I got some of the "Drow" D&D dice bags. And a bunch of older d20 books on magic.
Minis. I got some dragons (well my kids did) and some other minis. I love that huge one. It is a statue of some sort. In my games it will be a Death Titan.
Some books for my games. The Dragon (Mongoose) and Dragonlance is for the 3.x game, Faith & Avatars and the Dragon Mag Annual are for the 4e game. Rokugan was just because it was a buck.
Finally I am replacing my worn out Pokemon backpack for a real gamer bag.
And a full set Drow dice. We all got some and had to go to all the D&D events to get them. They are very cool. My wife likes hers because they are purple. All her dice are purple.
