Went through my gaming shelf today noticed I had even more than I remember.

Most of Eclipse phase.
Night's Black Agents
Call of Cthulhu 6th ed
The Laundry Files

To be continued once I have time to cringe at the size of my Drivethru rpg library.

Edit: The Devotees. How could I forget that I have that in my EP pdf folder!

Non rpg stuff:

RPPR pushed me over the edge about buying a PS4. Bundled with BLOODBORNE and The Witcher

Helldivers
Payday 2: Crimewave Edition (PS4). i got it when it first came out but i didn't understand it. Then last week i binged on Railery and it suddenly cliced. Am at the point that i can't play with just the a.i. any more. i go by DarkestAdam on PSN (Also Steam) if anyone needs another pair of hands.

After hearing the gang's review of Hc Svnt Dracones (such a stupid title though...) in the latest episode I bought the pdf, especially since it was $3 off DriveThruRPG. About a fourth of the way through, and it's interesting to say the least. I was expecting more of a "YO DAWG I HEARD YOU LIKE FURRIES AND SCIFI SO WE PUT FURRIES IN YO ECLIPSE PHASE SO YOU CAN TRANSHUMAN WHILE YOU ANTHROMORPHIC" but it uses the two in a way that feels organic and not shoehorned. Will be interesting to see how the rest of the book, and the mechanics, fair.

I kind of came at it backwards - I'd listened to 1-2 episodes of RPPR but that was it until the No Soul Left Behind kickstarter dropped.  I liked the concept so much (both parents have taught, I do TAing) that I went in for it.  It was only later that I listened to the playtest and have been hooked ever since. 

With that in mind:

RPG books:
- Most of the stuff from that ArcDream clearout last year.  Included Wild Talents, supplements, Candlewick Manor, pretty much everything for MaoCT except Road Trip. 
- Eclipse Phase core and Morph Recognition cards
- Esoterrorists 2e
- Laundry Files bundle of holding
- The Quiet Year
- No Security

I was already going to get Delta Green when it launched the kickstarter but RPPR helped convince me to up my pledge. 

Other books:
I like the fiction and writing shout-outs a whole lot, so: Wool, Storyteller, and many things (Powers, Planetary, etc) checked out from the library based on RPPRecommendations.  Also Darkest Dungeon, though I haven't really played it.

(From the RPPR Tumblr (I don't... Tumble? Is that it?))

idaman008:

    Some Jerk Who Hates That I Have Money, Probably on RPPR or Something: “Hc Svnt Dracones is $3 on DriveThruRPG!”

    Me: (already with my debit card out) “God DAMNIT!”

    Plot twist: the jerk who hates it when I have money was ME all along.

lol

Does... does this mean I'm the horrible monster now?

Update:

I now own all of Eclipse Phase and Night's black agents "core" books (waiting on Rimward to be delivered).

There's probably a load of other stuff too.

This is a bit off topic but...

RPPR has kind of ruined me on buying new games. The old ones are fine, I can back a Golden Goblin kickstarter sight unseen and know I'll want whatever it is that at last makes it to my inbox.

But almost all the other games I've picked up, read, played and enjoyed have been demo'ed on RPPR. I'm not sure I would have read through Eclipse Phase if I didn't have Know Evil and the intro game Ross ran as a thing to fill in. Night's Black Agents has become one of my favorite games and ideas but I didn't even think to read it without hearing it on RPPR.

The other side is last year I saw Polaris on Kickstarter. It looked neat and stuff but as I started reading it my eyes glazed over and I just kind of stopped caring. But had RPPR done a few sessions of it I'd be much more interested, a lot of the game pre-filled in from time spent commuting and at the gym.

Just about the only new thing I've been able to get was Apocalypse World and I suspect that's from the book being an easy read and having as few barriers to play as possible.

So it's something interesting I've noticed.

I dropped an obscene amount of money at the Pelgrane Press booth at Dragonmeet last year: Got me all the Night's Black Agents books and Bubblegumshoe. I like how focused the Pelgrane books are. You don't feel like you get conned into committing to a big old game line like certain F20 games do and others of that vintage.

I still have a little trouble reading the setting matter in the Eclipse Phase core rules because of how comprehensively it was covered in Know Evil.

Caleb pushed me over the edge. I am now reading the three body problem.

I've got the audiobooks for that. I'm going to get into them after I finally get round to reading the Ancillary trilogy.

I might have bought these anyways, but I should give the RPPR crew their due: I only bought them after listening to the False Haven AP.
