As I said last time, I'm getting an early start on game buying this year.

I am hoping to keep it cheap though, and I am out of space for physical games, so much of this year will no doubt be GoG sales and RPG PDFs.

And I start out the year with a DriveThru RPG sale. Bruce Heard is a past master of worldbuilding and setting suppliments, and I want to see what he does now. I would have liked to back the KickStarter (I don't say that often), but, hey, money.

And GamersGate has another 75% off sale. I've built up a fair amount of their virtual currency over the last couple of years, so I used it to get these two expansions.

Star Fleet Battles: Module D3 – Booms & Saucers
Captain's Log #38
Captain's Log #38 Supplement

Module D3 is something that's always been in the 'that's nice' category. Potentially useful, but not really needed. But now it's available as a cheap PDF product, so sure.

ADB has also been slowly re-releasing issues of Captain's Log as PDFs for the last couple years, and they've just caught up to where my physical collection stops. It happens to be at the point where they started releasing PDF 'supplements' to the issues with designer's notes and such. So, I'll try that out, and see how it is.

Now, to find time to go through it all....

I recently got a little extra money at about the same time I got through some of my reading backlog and decided to go for it. As it turns out the second issue just came out and is definitely one I'm interested in....

Three months later, and #39 came out. The supplement was good enough last time (including a story that linked to the main one) for me to want to keep getting them. Though it looks like they're free these days, and I'll be glad of that; though it might indicate that a lot of the content has gone too.

Threshold continues its focus on the north with an issue about Norwold. Since that's what 'the north' generally means for me in Mystara, and I've always liked CM1: Test of the Warlords, I'm looking forward to this one.

I've been meaning to buy Transistor since it came out, since I really enjoyed Supergiant's previous game, but hadn't really gotten around to it.

Now, it's finally on GOG, and half off. Sold. (And I spent $5 on the soundtrack.)

FR11: Dwarves Deep
Player's Handbook (AD&D 2e)

Okay, I'm still restless for Forgotten Realms stuff at the moment, and ended up ordering a used copy the next FR supplement past what I've had since the early '90s. ...We'll see if my re-reading and reviews ever get that far.

Since I was already paying shipping, I got the only other item of any interest from that seller—the 2e Player's Handbook, which I figure to look over to get a better idea of how 'kits' worked.

But, they're among the earliest things I don't have, and they're %50 off.

The update to Fighter Operations is finally coming out. It features the expanded countersheets, which have a bunch of new middle years-era ships, so it would be nice to get those at some point.

But, right now, I'm just getting the PDF of the updated rules, which have been released in advance of the main product, so they can integrate the inevitable first round of nit-picky corrections into the printed version.

I haven't managed time to really go through it yet, but I will say that applying the less-cramped formatting of the 2010 rulebook to FO really does help.

Mark had a spare slot of 50% off discounts during the GMT Fall Sale, and offered to let me get something as long I paid it back. My first choice was out of print (Space Empires 4X), and I eventually decided to go for this, as I've enjoyed the system, and would like to play more in it.

After the amount of time I've spent in GW2 after it went for free, there was really no reason not to get the expansion. ArenaNet has done a good job, and deserve some money for the time I've spent enjoying the game. I delayed a bit just to let my finances get into better shape, but that was the only reason why I didn't do it about a month earlier.

Total for the year: $325.31

Another year in the $300 range. Considering some of the big-ticket items, that's not too bad. My main regret is that I haven't managed to get Hakkaa Päälle!: ASL Module 14, and now MMP has announced the Korean War module.

I wish ADB had slightly better prices for their PDF versions, but I'll keep getting them to free up shelf space. I'm behind on reading Pyramid, so I don't know if I'll re-up that in 2016 or not.
