Somewhere in the move between me coming to the West Coast and my stuff going to New Jersey and then here...my DMG has disappeared.
For those of you uninitiated, that means 'Dungeon Master's Guide', 2nd Edition...the Bible of AD&D. After they cleaned up the rules, before they were raped by Wizards Of The Ass-Reaming Coast. Yes, I have the fucking thing memorized (ask my former players), but that isn't the point.
I've had that book since it was published in 1989. 10 years of notes in the margins, house rules, re-writes, sweat, blood, tears, food stains, drink rings, dents from whacking tables and players...all gone. Most of all, memories, gone. I've owned that book longer than almost anything else I have.
At least I still have the Bogey Table.
