That being said, while out this evening, and bought myself the 3rd Ed. core rulebooks. The damn things feel slimy in my hands, and I shiver when I touch them. I haven't even been able to make myself open them yet...it's just wrong. I prolly would have not done it, but I was looking through the game sections of the bookstore, and saw that Gygax has written a sourcebook for a world that is done in an Egyptian style, and once I saw that it was done with 3rd Ed. in mind, I broke down. I'll doubt I'll ever be a convert, but at least I'm keeping up.
I can't decide if I feel violated or violating. *sigh*
