About 5 years ago we moved and I looked through all my old RPG stuff, for the first time in around 10 years.  Then I started filling in, slowly, some of the missing peices.  The search for items, and printings, and the associated whatnot, led here.

Then I started to branch out, seeing what I had missed with V3, 3.5, and the effective 'birth' of OSR (since I ended my RPG love with early AD&D2 and Paranoia back when it was hella funny and some Cthulhu (those collectors may even be nuttier than OS&D guys) and Deadlands).  Early Goodman Games was the catalyst - perfect early feel to start the dive.

Now I've got a mountain of GG, Necro, TLG, and all manner of assorted whatnot.  I also fell hard, like a giddy schoolgirl, for Paizo and Pathfinder, and for Pacesetter, and Frog God.

Now I've got a stack of unread materials around 3 feet high.  And it keeps growing.  And I keep buying.  And I keep reading.

Officially, I blame all of you.

I only read it to see if they have something cool they're looking to unload.

Yeah, but that's a slippery slope. If you read the doubles, then you need duplicates of the duplicates in case the first duplicates are damaged or worn by reading them, then duplicates of those duplicates, etc. The madness!

Before I was a soulless accountant, I was a free spirit art major for a few years.  I have a few select peices, fantasy-based (two Elmore prints that hold a huge mental space to a then-10-year-old impressionable DragonLance fan), and a few other overpriced non-fantasy.

I will not menton the massive mental willpower required not to throw my hat in for Acaeum custom print...

Art collecting is a great way to make a small fortune.  It's your hapiness ROI after starting with a large fortune.

Sunrunner44 - doesn't have too much art, simply lacks wall space.

My wife agrees with you 100% ...our bedroom is looking more and more like the back room at the local gaming store  :D

I still like to blame...errr...thank Mars for inspiring me to get into non-TSR  too!
