mk I'm gonna try a new strategy. instead of actually reading a book that matters in the grand scope of humanity, let's read something a little simpler and a little more practical.

everyone, read A Quick Primer for Old School Gaming. It's a VERY SHORT essay detailing the main differences in style between D&D 1st edition and 3.5. It's very well written, if slightly biased. I think you will all find old-school gaming much more attractive.

John the Roguish: "Like there’s a covered pit trap?”
GM: “Could be.”
John the Roguish: “Can I disarm it?”
GM: “How?”
John the Roguish: “I don’t know, maybe make a die roll to jam the mechanism?”
GM: “You can’t see a mechanism. You step on it, there’s a hinge, you fall. What are
you going to jam?”
John the Roguish: “I don’t know. Okay, let’s just walk around it.”

Love it.

Ya that's a perfect example of how old-school gaming is just more interesting and immersive.

so, with the insane amount of money sony is willing to take off of an ereader for best buy employees (a $300 ereader with wifi is currently on sale for $50 off and sony will give me $200 for buying it) i have decided i will buy one tomorrow, so if you would like to resurrect this i would be in. also, if the books chosen are in the public domain i can get them for free through google and would actually participate in this idea that seems to have died.

How did this thread make it to three pages?

Oh, and I happened to read "The Stranger" some months ago, Emily suggested it. It was to first complete book I've read in its entirety for probably years. Kind've a surreal experience of a book, but when you think about it in summary, there didn't seem to be much depth. Guy's mom dies. Guy's like "que sera sera." Nothing happens. Guy runs into a jerk. Jerk beats up Guy's friend. Guy accidentally kills jerk. Guy goes to court and gets "Planet of the Apes"-ed. Guy's like "que sera sera." The End.
