It's been so long since I've played DnD that when I went to the Amazon page, I saw "Tortle" and had to look that up.

I still have some of my old sourcebooks. I got rid of a lot of stuff before I moved but some of it I couldn't bear getting rid of.

Tortles were first introduced in the X-series modules back in the '80s

The picture below is from x9 from 1985

I figured it was some Laird/Eastman rip-off.  ;D

Must be later editions of Gamma World because that's some terrible, gonzo stuff.

7th ed GW, sometimes colloquially known as GW 4e b/c it was based on D&D 4e.

It was the edition with the horribly-conceived collectible card expansions for varying add-ons, powers, etc

I'm continually gobsmacked at both the talent level and number of artists out there who do this sort of thing.  Kudos to all of them.

I always enjoy a good map with cross hatching but mostly I love the old school blue maps. Nothing says classic AD&D than a good map with blue walls and dungeon iconography.

Hell, we *all* need that. 

About the only thing that's stopping me at the moment, is that I don't care to give Amazon any (more) of my money.  Bezos can suck it.
