DnD rulebooks

I'm not sure if I should get the DnD Monster Manual 3 or not.

Please advise.

Do you really need it?

If not, then don't get it.

... but need vs. want? That is the question...

As someone who is suffering because he can't afford food, just so he can pay rent and doctors bills, trust me, need is more important.

I say if you've got the extra $$ lying around, it's gonna be a good buy. I adore the illustrators for all the 3rd edt. books. My DM is currently borrowing my copy for some type of plotting.

I've got it.

Do you already have V3? 3.5 is prettier. And it has cool monsters in it.

But you can't borrow mine! *angry glare, possessive twist of body to protect small squirming booklike object*

No no babe...she means the 3rd Edition "Monster Manual III". They've written a *third* one.

Personally, having seen a couple of sample monsters on the web site, I reckon it looks like a load of bollocks. I'd recommend the Monsternomicon for the Iron Kingdoms setting instead - it's a monster book done right. I even have a copy you can borrow if you want.

I've become quite dubious of Iron Kingdoms, to be honest. I'm having difficulty seeing through the hype. But thanks for the offer!

Sadly for miss_rynn, Iron Kingdoms is now the new thing everyone loves, so she's compelled to dismiss it ;)

I can't help being a non-conformist! I must forever be arthouse and aloof! I cannot be one to follow fashion!

Almost certainly - from the samples I have read it looks fantastic.

Spending money on D&D is a good thing; after all, I just bought The World's Largest Dungeon.
