3.5 Resurgent: New School Retrogaming

Is D&D 3.5 your favorite version of D&D? If your group is still playing and wants to show the world that not only is 3.5 still alive but there a lot of people still playing it, the 3.5 Resurgent graphic may be just what your campaign web site or your blog needs. As many old school gamers have found, community can really help keep out-of-print games alive.

 
While I am no more a 3.5 fan than I am a 4e fan, I think this “3.5 Resurgent” idea is a good one. Anything that declares you don’t have to be playing the latest edition of D&D to have fun is good for the hobby in my book.

I like it.

I'm into Oe and 1e these days, but still am not willing to write off all those happy years of 3e and 3.5 gaming with "I once was blind but now I see."

Maybe the retro-renaissance needs a unity graphic too….but y'all know those grognards can't even bloody agree on what to call themselves.

To heck with 'em. I STILL like "Old school".

I only wish it could have said 3rd ed resurgent. The similarities between 3.0 and 3.5 is bigger than the difference to older/newer editions.

3.5 was a marketing ploy, it's all 3rd ed. Really. Goddamnit!

One of my game groups dig 3.5 and since my brother leads it I play in it my loves are Labyrinth lord, Swords&Wizardry, Mutant Future, and classic Traveller with some Shadow Run thrown in for good measure. And yes 3/3.5 is better than 4E in my opinion.
