Titles that have me itching…


Here are the things that I am itching to get in reviews on:

Complete Mage (this is next on the list of books)

New Dragon magazines

Expedition to Castle Ravenloft

Fiendish Codex II: Tyrants of the Nine Hells (out in December)

I'm not a huge Eberron buyer, although the Dragonmarked book looks pretty interesting, so maybe that one...maybe. I'm disappointed to not see more up coming Forgotten Realms books. I'm a Realmsian fan from way back when. My first real game of D&D was running the Avatar trilogy. Hmmm...I should update that and run it for one of my Play By Email groups. Maybe throw in it Classics_Game or FR_Classics. Anyway, I'm rambling.

What else should I be checking out that's coming up? What already out materials should I review (those are even faster for me to do since I've already read them once I only have to do my second/note-taking reading on those...half the work means new show out twice as quick)? Any ideas?
