Yeah… so that whole switching to Wednesdays thing didn’t work out so well. Oops. Anyway…
About a year and a half ago I was in a D&D 3.5 game. I was the only one with a hard copy of the Player’s Handbook I just left it at the house we played at. It’s been there ever since until yesterday when I finally got around to picking it up. George, the guy who was holding on to it, made sure to point out some light damage to the corners the book took since I left it at his place.
He apologized, and I said I was ok with it. And I meant it, too.
I used to be pretty uptight about the condition of my game books, before I realized that what wears books out is getting used. The books I have that are in the best condition are the ones I haven’t really used very much. Alternatively, the book I’ve gotten the most use of, the one that I used to carry with me every where I went, Vampire: the Masquerade (Revised Edition), is in terrible condition.
That, my friends, is mileage!
So don’t worry about frayed corners or worn bindings or scratched covers. It’s just what love looks like.
