It was pointed I should have posted here first.. I'ts been a long time for an intro post for me..
Hi all, names Brett.. although people usually refer to me as Brette on the net (its just how I sign off on all my posts and email.. E being the first letter of my last name.. I have always done it that way..)
Anyway.. I'm mainly a RPG collector.. I collect all sorts of things.. I started to D&D reb box and I started to collect D&D/AD&D.. then TSR stuff.. then other game systems starting with non-tsr stuff first then others and more and more and more..
My collections shifts focus from time to time..
1) Aussie made RPG stuff.. I decided to try and track down all the Aussie made rpg's .. still looking for some.. made a web site for it.. www.arielarchives.com
2) All rpg games (LOL).. I have a rather large collection.. www.arielarchives.com/brett/brett.xls
is where I keep an up to date list of my collection (items? I haven't even guessed.. 5000+ more? who knows)
3) RPG Magazines/Zines.. once again a rather lot of them see the above for a list if the ones I have (about 4000+ believe it or not).. still looking for lots..
( oh and I collect those pick-a-path type books as well..)
What has interest me at the moment is the "Living Campaigns" I have collected a lot off and on over the years and I'd though I'd get a bit serious about tracking down, finishing off collections preserving the info for future RPG generations;) Its also a way of slowing my spending as well.. LOL..
My Living Greyhawk collection is the main reason why I'm here (Although I am a fan of the WoG boxed set.. I remnember staring at the maps and going over them again and again when it first came out) I plan to see if there is anything else I can add to the collection.. and then on to the other "Living" campaigns of which there are a suprising lot.. So i'd be interested in knowing if anyone else collects any of the "others" (OT- so please feel free to email me.. email is best.. email@example.com) Some of these are Living City, Living Jungle, Living Death, Living Raveloft, Ruins of Ravensbluff Living Arcanis, Living Dragonstar, Living Kingdoms of Kalamar, Living Rokugan, Living Spycraft, Living Verge, Living Planar, Living Traveller, Living Glorantha, Blackmore, Virtual Seattle, Legends of the Shining Jewel, Fellowship of the White Star, Witch Hunter, and also Legacy of the Green Regent and Eberron.. I think thats most of them.. please tell me if there are any more;)
I'm also interested to find out about "Living Greyhawk Reborn" if anyone can tell me...?? I sort of know the basics..

Some are no longer available, but if interested, will re-post a current list ( its mostly my list less Cerbrions' less one or two others) of course no idea what the post would run to there, but can't beat the price for the magazines -0-
