I know they are good, I just never could get my mind around any of their books being of use to me... a loss, really.

Nifelhein,

Because they weren't designed for MIDNIGHT?  Or because you use your own stuff?  Or you already have a gaming compulsion, ala Kane?

When the package finally gets here, I'll be going through the newest extension of my library for MIDNIGHT-appropriate ideas.  I already got the GameMastery Compleat Encounters, which, sans minis are only $2 through 12/31.  They all have pretty cool double-sided color maps printed on decently-thick cardstock.  Check them out: http://paizo.com/store/sale/paizo/v5748btpy7uwd

They're worth picking up even without the included encounter.

None really, I bought quite afew things before Midnight came out, and when I found out about it 3.5 was already around too, I try to avoid buying books I will have no use for and while Green Ronin quality always was never low (at least for the products i have seen), they never really produced something that attracted me right out of the box.

Although I ahve always had this little itch to get M&M I am not a good Supers GM and the ones I know like GURPS too much to want to try something else.

Hey, go high or go home, right?  My group largely used PDF's but you just can't beat $2 books/$5 hardcovers.  Ironically, I didn't even get everything I wanted:

"When we signed on to offer the Green Ronin sale online, we were trying to do something nice for the gaming community, but we didn't anticipate the popularity of the sale.  As a result, we've had to cancel some products that you ordered.  We are truly sorry that this situation has occurred, and we have taken steps to solve problems like this for future sales of this kind.

At paizo.com, we pride ourselves on our customer service.  In this instance, we have not lived up to our high standards, and for that we are truly sorry.  Early in the new year, you will be receiving a code by email that will allow you to make one order on paizo.com at a discount of 25% as a way of "making things right" to you and the other customers that were inconvenienced."


The following items have been cancelled as of December 17, 2007 at 08:42 PM (US/Eastern):
1 x Tales of Freeport (d20) @ 2.00 = $0.00
1 x Thieves' Quarter (d20) @ 2.00 = $0.00
1 x Creatures of Freeport (d20) @ 2.00 = $0.00
1 x Hammer & Helm: A Guidebook to Dwarves (d20) @ 2.00 = $0.00
1 x Monsters of the Mind (d20) @ 2.00 = $0.00
1 x Medieval Player's Manual (d20) @ 2.00 = $0.00
1 x Modern Magic (d20 Modern) @ 2.00 = $0.00
   

Soooooo...if anyone happens to have any of these above mentioned items, I'd be happy to take them off your hands with cash, trades, or commissioned art.

I didn't go as crazy as Avatar Art, but I did pick up a dozen books, mostly the mythic vistas line and the adventures.  At two dollars a book if I get a few hours of enjoyment reading them or find a few nuggets for use in Midnight it was worth it.  As a writer I also like to see how other rpg books are written/formated, etc.  With shipping I pads about $32 so I couldn't pass it up. I just started reading the Thieves Quarter book and while it leans a little to much to the high fantasy side, it's been an enjoyable read so far.

I wanted to buy more Mythic Vistas books. I have the Skull & Bones PDF and love it (run a short campaign also), and am looking forward to my stuff.

Fortunately for society's sake few do.  Wink

I paid that much FOR shipping so I'm curious to see the size o' the box everything comes in.

BTW, I know I've previously recommended Game Mastery's various Compleat Encounters.  But even at $2, they're not easily adaptable to the MIDNIGHT setting as is.  (although Throne of the Gorilla King might work well for the Aruunn Jungle)  While I earlier thought that even with this one could get their $'s worth via the maps, the Dungeon Tile line seems better suited for this sort of thing.

My bad.

Lastly, still seeking trades although thanks to Tony Manero (Author on Destiny and Shadow and Honor and Shadow) some of the handbook series have dibs on them.  Other than that, I'm looking to get the titles Paizo "didn't anticipate" would sell out."  Tongue
