I was sitting in the car waiting for my son to finish tag rugby, and the only reading material I had to hand was this -

http://www.acaeum.com/ddindexes/setpage ... 9rule.html

As it goes I was quite impressed - a nice simple set of rules for a beginner - nicely laid out, no complications and easy to follow.

BUT my question is - did anyone ever rip their book apart and put it in a ring binder as suggested on page B3?

The book suggests that all follow up rules would follow the same format (B# for Basic page number E# for Expert etc) and it would make collating it all very simple.

Am I wrong in thinking that only the Basic & Expert used this system?
Was it all superceded by the (wonderful) Rules Cyclopedia?

And how much would a set  of rules in a binder be worth?!! :D


You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

I ripped apart my Warhammer 40,000 rulebook when it started to come apart.  It made the book a lot easier to use.

WH40K books were  not the strongest so I Guess that's not a bad idea.

Anyone do it with any other books. (from previous posts on the forum it seems some were more likely to fall apart than others (OA and softy PH & MM for example)

I once got a job lot through that had a monster manual sans cover held together with a treasury tag at the top corner!

I have a taped up spine on my WH Fantasy book and a spineless (all loose pages) Runequest book, but never had anything put in a binder that wasn't meant for one in the first place (early Thieves Guild).
I could never rip apart a book, but I've tried many time to try and save them in some manor.

I keep my 3rd ed Gurps w/ both Compendiums in one of those GIANT 3 ring binders.  THey were all 3 loose from the spines and I just figured it would be better than dealing with pages falling out all over the place.

I ripped apart a 3E book too, but I did it to line the snake cage.
I don't recall separating anything else.


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.
