If d20 did nothing for me, I see no reason to continue with more nothing.


I did not collect 3E or 3.5, either.  
But PF is a different beast.
The setting really intrigues me, so much so that's I've slowed down my collecting Greyhawk.

The game mechanics may be 3.5 in nature, but the "feel" is different, as if it's gone through more play testing, and achieved more balance.
It reminds me of 1E.
That's an intangible thing to say, I realize.
Not very logical.
It just seems more fun than 3.5 D&D.

So, I have started collecting their stuff, especially Inner Sea material.
I also bought the starter set.
It's quite impressive.

Hoping to get the kids and nephews playing over the holidays!

Sounds like this is going to be a "must have":

I was hoping that Paizo would do something like this.  I dont buy Pathfinder stuff simply because I dont have the funds to buy it all.  But this is pretty much a no-brainer for me.

What does this sort of thing (a collection and reprint/update) do to the value of the originals?  They are probably the PF products that have increased in value the most.

Just offhand, I feel the value of Runelords material (especially Book One) goes down a bit.  However, I think Book One will retain it's collectible value and always go for a fair amount....after all, it was the first Pathfinder adventure path ever released.

Follow-up to Grug Greyskin's question, would the reprint lower the value of the originals simply because there's greater supply?

For some reason, my gut reaction is that the originals would go up in value since they are not reprints, but I'm probably over-thinking it.
I do that a lot  :-)

It is also only the adventure getting redone, the Pathfinder stories and some other material is not.

There are always a fair amount of people who just want to see and read the adventure, so in some ways yes I think the value would go down and not up on the originals.
