Thanks for reminding me of these Scott! I have yet to get the Fight On! issue. :)

Questions :)

so "Dave Arneson's Blackmoor D&D 3.5 Softcover "
and "Dave Arneson's Blackmoor D20 (D&D 3.5 Edition)" are the same book right? Just hardcover or soft cover?

and that's the book that is updated as "Blackmoor: First Campaign 4E" right?

So how does "Player's Guide to Blackmoor" differ from the above or does it? Hard to sort all these out.

I should probably change it so the first one says hard cover. However, the soft cover includes errata and a hex map that were not included in the original hard cover.

The 4E book has a lot of similarities with the first books you mention, but include things from all the different 3E era books and also leaves out quite a few things from the original sourcebook.

The players guide has new classes, prestigue classes and various options for PCs. It can perhaps be regarded as a players companion to the main sourcebook. Its a very different product from the others. Some of the classes from the Player's Guide were brought over as "core" classes in the 4E book.

Hope this helps? :)

Are you kidding me? I thought I pretty much had everything but Domesday Book #13. Now I have to find a paperback copy of a book I already have in hardback. Argh.

So it would seem that if one were to have the 4e book, Hak, and DA1, (along of course with D&D supp II and the FFC) one would have the bulk of the fluff material covered. Yes?

Yeah.. I only have the pdf version of the soft cover, so I dont know what the print version looks like though, whether they had a fold out version of the map or not etc.

I really think they should have put out some sort of DM's kit product with a DM's screen, a poster map and maybe a small adventure or some fiction or whatever. Seems like it would have been cheap to produce and they already had all that work done. Wonder why it never happened.

I'd probably recommend getting DA2-4 (or their 3E updates) and maybe the Wizard's Cabal. Clock & Steam is mostly rules stuff, but a few pages of background early on. All the books do have setting contents though.

If you are going for the 4E sourcebook rather than the 3E one, you are missing several gods, NPCs and creatures.

The full color map was included at the back of the softcover and was attached to the binding. There was a perforation on it that allowed the map to be removed however.

Just bought from LULU:

Dragons at Dawn, FIght on 3 (Rob Conley's take on the lands west of BM), as well as the Basic Fantasy 2e HC from Solomoriah/Chris Gonnerman!

Nice! :) - Looking forward to see how all this will be!
