    WotC rereleases every version of D&D

    http://kryptonradio.com/2013/01/23/w...geons-dragons/

    The products for sale include a combination of core rules books, adventure series (what us old gamers call “modules”), supplement materials, and various backlist products from most of the D&D rules systems known to gaming-kind — Basic, AD&D, AD&D 2nd Edition, 3rd Edition, 3.5 and 4.0 — as well as specific campaign settings like Planescape and Ravenloft.
    Basically, they are releasing on PDF most old adventures. While the online shop (http://www.dndclassics.com) does have Birthright as a value for the settings filter, it doesn't presently have anything for sale there. We can but wait.

    The scans quality is very good: you can search them, they are bookmarked,... And the product information is a joy to read too

    In general, an impressive work by WotC at least from my pov

    I wonder what happens about those people who bought TSR PDFs back in the day (before they were yanked from electronic stores everywhere). I doubt that they will get a refund.

    I don't think they would either. It is likely under some new legal provision that differs from the SRD designation.

    I am sure they have concluded that all their products are out there on .pdf already free to download, so they may as well try to make it available and legal and get some money for it. Once everything is scanned into .pdf the products revenue is likely cost effective.

    If you bought them on DriveThru/RPGNow, those .pdfs are again available to you for download (in their new improved versions). I think they are not available again if you bought them in other stores like Paizo.

    I suppose they will come in time They have probably to re-scan and OCR everything and that takes time (and I suppose they will start with the most popular books first).

    I suspect that I'll buy a copy of everything despite having it all in hardcopy already - does that make me weird?

    I just figure that someday I'll wear out the maps, etc so a soft copy would act as a back up ;-)

    Not at all. I have the same plan even if I have hard and soft copies. I will be interested in the quality of the scans. I want perfection or closer to it than I could do. Scans that I have could use improvement.

    I'll be doing the same, good pdfs are really really appreciated for me (I love physical books, but pdfs are very handy).
