Great stuff! I asked primarily because EC was like a pulling a blindfold from my eyes and being able to really see the impossibilities of roleplaying for the very first.
Sure, I can dig that. As a music nerd and pop culture participant-observer EC really grabbed my ganglions. If I want to do a mashup of Elric & Edgar Winter who wields a soul-eating synthesizer (and believe me, I do want to!) EC is a perfect match.
Man, this makes me want to find the five or six spiral-bound notebooks filled with maps, characters, and bad Rifts fanfic my fifteen-year-old self wrote. I have them hidden away somewhere.
Somebody *really* dug the Amber books.
Blizack: Bad fanfic you say? Here's some of the Gamma World variety.Scott: Oh yeah. Still do, at least the original Chronicles.
I really wish I had the reams and reams of paper I filled with gaming material as a teen -- composition notebooks, looseleaf paper, index cards, legal pads, form-feed, even stacks of stuff I printed out on a daisywheel. I feel like that was probably my most fertile imaginative period.Unfortunately, one of my more irritating character traits is a tendency to get rid of old stuff. I don't have one single artifact of my younger days. :(
