My GenCon 2014 Shopping List

by Ken Newquist / August 14, 2014

In 2000 I bought my first Dungeons & Dragons 3rd Edition Player's Handbook there, in 2014 I'll by my first 5th Edition PHB. This is where I got my Battlestar Galactica and Serenity RPG books, as well as more d20 sourcebooks than I care to mention.

I've also found one of the books on my list is caught in the Amazon/Hachette crossfire.
