RPGaDay Challenge - Day 5

Day 5 - Most Old School RPG Owned

What constitutes most?

This is how I get in trouble with these things. I read the question, and then, foolishly, I think about what they mean.

I own original copies of:

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 1st Edition - Player's Handbook, DM Guide, Monster Manual and Deities and Demigods (complete with Melnibone' and Cthulhu).

Space Opera Boxed Set by Fantasy Games Unlimited.

The Star Frontiers Alpha Dawn Boxed Set.

Star Trek, the RPG by FASA. I have all the First Edition material but not the box. The material is currently stored in the Second Edition box with the material from that version as well.

Toon, First Edition book.

Traveller, the original little black books.

Villains and Vigilantes, Second (or Revised) Edition Boxed Set.

Is that old school enough?

  1. Your Traveller LBBs, are they the first or second version (I think that it was the second printing that changed the Starships book slightly, but the first version may have gone through more than one printing)?

  2. Good question. I think First Edition, but I'm not certain as I haven't looked at them in while.

    I refer to physically newer books (but still the classic version of the system) when gaming, so as to leave my originals intact.

    1. Yeah, I don't use my LBBs anymore. Happily, I have a copy of The Traveller Book that remains in good condition, plus I prefer MegaTraveller for the rules anyway.
