Whats in your rpg book collection?

Didn’t really have a topic for today, so thought I’d share some of what I currently have in my growing collection of RPG related books. Rather than list every single one (unless people want me to do that) I’ll break it down into system/games etc. These range from 1st edition D&D items almost as old as I am, to brand new only got published a few weeks ago.

  • Babylon 5 – 5
  • Call of Cthulu – 3
  • Cypher – 16
  • D&D – 50
  • D20 – 1
  • GURPS – 4
  • Middle Earth – 3 (but two more can be found under D&D)
  • Misc/Other – 12
  • Palladium – 18
  • Pathfinder – 24
  • Star Gate – 5
  • Star Trek – 2
  • Traveller – 4
  • Warcraft – 7
  • Warhammer – 16 (This includes Dark Heresy, WFRPG etc)
  • World of Darkness – 29

If my maths is right that is close to 200 books...

How to roll d40? Roll another dice along with your d20, such as a d6. If the d6 is odd, add 20 to the result.
