Toonces:
I suppose I could have posted this somewhere else, but it's really relevant here.  I was chatting up one of my co-workers who is a hardcore boardgamer ("Toonces, have you ever heard of a website called 'Boardgamegeek?'"  Me: "Why yes, yes I have...") and we were discussing D&D and he pointed me to Drivethrurpg.com.  If you haven't been there, don't go. 

You know, I've been so sheltered.  I pretty much thought RPG's began and ended with Dungeons and Dragons.  Who knew that there is a whole world of role playing games out there?  Not me!  Well, as I goofed around there I was pretty much ok until I read about Pendragon.  It's so easy to acquire stuff on Drivethru...most everything is via .pdf for a handful of bucks.  So I get Pendragon and I'm totally blown away by it...so totally cool.  I had no idea games like this even existed.

Now I'm sitting here browsing through all of these RPG's set in Rome...am I interested?  You betcha!  I'd love to play an RPG set in ancient Rome!  And there's just so much stuff there.  I'm sitting here, credit card in hand, thinking, "Well, why not?  I'll just pick up this one book and that's it..." but we all know it's never "it". 

I wish I had never seen that website.

You know I went there, right? I was never good at resisting temptation.

And especially don't subscribe to their weekly email that includes links to free downloads of products from publishers and some pretty good looking print-and-play maps

Oy. I suppose this is a bad time to tell you I had an older version of Pendragon back in '93, eh?  It might even be in one of the 273846756 boxes of game stuff I'm in the process of moving into the new house.  (I think I'm down to just 3 left to move...)

If you like Pendragon, you ought to check out the Albion system, too.    Free starter/intro to download here.

You're welcome

Double Deuce:
I made the mistake of starting a wishlist at Drivethrurpg.com.   :'(

TheCommandTent:
Definitely don't got to their sister site  http://www.wargamevault.com/   and like what was said above do not give them their email address for their weekly email
