    Default I lost it all! :(

    Okay, for the last month and a half I'd had to rely on the SRD for making characters because I'd lost all my 3.5 books, dice, character sheets, etc. I don't know if my mom sold them or what, but their gone. Me and my group have been playing 2e (that's how I got them into role-playing) but I've been wanting to teach them 3.5 so I need to get some more. Dose anyone know of a good site (my gaming store shut down so I can't get 'em there ) to get the core books. Not Ebay, My mom banned me from there.

    Well I would say www.half.com, but that's run by Ebay.

    Try www.amazon.com They sell used books there too for much cheaper.

    They'd be illegal (Wizards won't sell 3.5 PdF's), so we can't talk about them. :/

    I don't think anyone would want those pancakes even if you paid them to eat them.

    Doesn't DriveThruRPG have the core 3.5 pdfs? Thought they did for some reason.

    They used to have before shortly into 4th Edition. Then WotC removed all their .pdf's, which is a shame, since I would really like to get SW Saga Edition.

    Don't you have any regular used book stores where you live? I've seen 3.5 books for decent prices around here.

    Why can't you teach them the system using the SRD? Okay, it doesn't explain character creation, but presumably you know how to do that already.

    Yeah, I was wondering about the eBay ban. Either OP is too young to have his own account (And thus is using his mom's) or he's old enough and still using his mom's account.

    I would suggest Amazon as well.

    Nthing amazon. I get all my D&D books there.

    However, you should find out if your mom did trash your books or not. If you she did, buying more is probably just a waste of money.
    If you like what I have to say, please check out my GMing Blog where I discuss writing and roleplaying in greater depth.

    While we have mentioned RPGNow.com (well, we used its other name, but they are pretty much the same place), it might be an excellent idea to actually open an account there and buy non-D&D games from there. Since downloads are pretty much unlimited (and legal), the only way she can take away your access to books is by 1) banning internet, and 2) banning computers.

    I suggest Witchcraft, which is actually free.

    Seriously, D&D is not the alpha and omega of tabletop roleplaying games. Expand your horizons! And when you're old enough to repurchase the books, you can always return to it.

    It's been a bit, GitP. If you're reading this, you're either digging through old stuff, or I've posted for the first time in forever.

    If you want to stay in touch, reach out to me on twitter (same username).

    The best answer is always to ask your DM.
    Unless you're the DM, in which case you should talk to your players.

    no psionics yet. maybe in the future, but i don't really keep up on the pathfinder news.

    personally, we've been using the system for the last month or so in our Wednesday night game and it's close enough to 3.5 that you should transition without too much of a problem... just watch out for some of the more minute things. we've noticed that we had to do a few double-takes because we expected spell/feat/rule X to work like it did in 3.5 while in truth it worked a bit differently.

    if you like 3.5, it might be a worthwhile purchase. i haven't been totally sold on the system yet over standard 3.5, it seems to fix some of the minor issues i've had but at a glance the larger ones are mostly left untouched. now we're only level 2 and i've yet to fully explore the options available and how they work in the wild so i'm still reserving final judgement, but it's currently gotten a grade of:

    "it's an ok purchase by itself i guess, a good buy if you like 3.5 but have a few issues with the system, if only to gather a few houserules for your 3.5 game. final grade still waiting"

    While WotC doesn't sell PDFs of their D&D 3.5 books, they used to. You can buy legal PDF books if you can find someone who wants to sell the ones they got from WotC. Theoretically you'd save money on shipping because it's just an InterNet transfer of data and title.

    The hitch is I don't know of any sites specializing in selling such items, so locating (legitimate) sellers could be problematic. Any help here, Playgrounders?

    Well, I'd be willing to sell some of mine, but I don't think we're allowed to talk about this kind of stuff here.
