Day 23 – Coolest Looking RPG Product/Book
I’m selecting two here. One because it’s a Limited Edition and the other because it’s the regular edition.
The Limited Edition is Fantasy Flight Games ‘Deathwatch’ set. It comes in a big engraved metal case held together by a chain and large key with a leather/leatherette book printed on parchment-like paper stock. It’s a stunning piece and looks fantastic – although very much a ‘Collectors’ item as opposed to a viable copy to run games with.
The coolest ‘regular’ RPG I’m selecting is actually one that we published when I was at Cubicle 7. That’s the Lord of the Rings “The One Ring” RPG. The game comes in a slipcase containing the books, dice and maps and between the art direction of Jon Hodgson and the magical layout talents of Paul Bourne it looks absolutely stunning and is one of the nicest looking RPG sets around.
