Impulse vs Plan

So I had planned on buying a copy of the D&D PHB v 3.5, because I really should have my very own, seeing as how I'm running the damn game and all. The price has dropped to a reasonable $50 these days, so I figured it was time.

... but looking through the pre-loved RPG books, something else caught my attention. I started thinking to myself, "do I really want to spend $50 for a few pages and a few carefully re-written paragraphs that I can always find in someone else's copy, or do I want to spend $30 on a book that I don't have any equivalent too, which has become remarkably pertinent to my plans, and will make my players suffer more?"

Which choice to you think I chose? I am now the owner of "The Lords of Darkness", the book jam-packed full of all of the evil factions and orginazations in Faerun. Because there weren't enough antagonists for the party, apparently. :)

And to you folk who said you would email me DnD stuff, email me, you monkeys! I'm bored and sleep deprived and in need of distraction from work!

Hee hee hee... In fact, MWAHAHAHAHA!!!

Now I'll have to work out some way to get them into the campaign that doesn't seem contrived... :)

Don't, y'know, feel pressured into using them or anything.

The fact that I managed to elicit a full on Laugh of Evil (TM) is both gratifying and a little worrying.

What? And let all that effort and terror go to waste? :)

I mean... why do you say that?...

Oh well... time to sell out to the highest bidders, then.

Wait - isn't that what we've always been doing?

DnD Books
For the record I went straight out on Sunday and purchased a copy of the 3.5 Players Handbook and Complete Divine. I am now in the process of devising the most fantastically entertaining and only moderately wroughted Cleric'ish type persona. :-)

And yes the email is a work in progress.

Yay. See, all I had to do was whine. :)

Don't listen to him! I pick on twinked characters the mostest! You really don't want me to pick on you, do you? I have a reputation for being a truly evil-spirited DM...

So I want some ablative armour, is that so wrong?

You should involve Netheril...everyone likes the Archwizards of Netheril.
