having read the thread through, its interesting to see that the S, A, UK series and I6 are favourites... something to tag for future reading :)

shame so few of those early posters are no longer here.. maybe life took over or the old nailing of heads got too much? :lol:  which incidently hasnt happened in a good while, as it seems the new joiners/returners are proper decent chaps! Where's a good troll when you need one....

Same here.

I started this thread in December of 2005. Now, roughly 4.5 years later, I'd say I own about 25 to 35 percent of the RPG items that I had on that December day.

Work, children, shifting interests, selling for much-needed extra dollars ... there's lots of reasons.

I had an image in my head of the "typical" Acaeum member (as if there were such a person) sitting in a room filled with gaming stuff, slowly being buried by a mountain of books, modules, dice, and supplies as his beard grew longer and grayer. It's interesting to find out that many, like myself, backtrack, sell off parts of the collection, and winnow out things that once were cherished but now are just clutter or bill-paying potential.

No mounds of dice here.  
Pretty much a typical American household in an old established neighborhood.
Huge trees, bikes in the yard.
Dogs taking a dump on chemically treated lawns.  
You'd have to look around to find my collection of D&D.  
Not that it's hidden, but I have many, many more books & DVDs on the bookshelves.  

At a Christmas party a guest was looking at our bookcases and said, "Is this that that old D&D game?"  

"Yep," I told him.  "Back in the day."

And then he said something to the effect of this: "Funny how something will catch on for a while then you'll never hear about it again."

I just went back to the kitchen and poured myself another scotch.

Cute. Most of the people I know these days would have a similar reaction.

Pretty much the same household situation here, though I tend to keep the gaming stuff upstairs where guests wouldn't normally go. Not so much due to embarrassment as I've gravitated toward using the nursery, now that the kids are out of it, as my "man cave".
