    There's a catfolk miniature from one of the old WotC prepainted plastic miniature sets. It was a common figure, so you can probably buy several together for less than $1.00 each.

    Of course, I say that and then see it's priced at $2.45 on Miniature Market and currently out of stock.

    Edit to add: I probably have 6 or 8 of the Catfolk figures that I'd be willing to part with. I don't think I have ever used a single one at my game table.

    you suddenly see a light, behind it is a glow, too bright to see, it comes toward you and part of it breaks off, and hits the ground near you, All magic and magic items cease to function and you all take 50 million divine damage ignoring damage reduction and immunities. Also you area all disintegrated.

    Some of those work. Gives me a starting point.

    Edit: It's for a fantasy setting. Saw a few that looked good, but man, I forgot how expensive these things are.

    After running the "Emerald City Knights" "campaign" for Mutants & Masterminds, I ran my first homebrew session for the campaign. And... finished rather early. It's become increasingly clear to me that despite being in the d20 rotunda, M&M actually runs pretty quick. It has an effects based system and there were a few lookups, but I think the lack of need for delicate positioning about halves the time investment of the game. Since many heroes have very high speeds, eliminating PC position as a limiting factor, the only thing I really need a map for is determining how many minions you can hit with one blast. And I'm usually happy to handwave that.

    While perusing the AD&D 2E WotC section of DriveThruRPG, I noticed that there are tons of PDFs missing. I happen to have copies of many of these products I purchased from tsr.com when they were sold in PDF format as "ESD" products. The PDFs were not watermarked at the time, but I also still have the various smartcert executables you were sent which would download the actual products from tsr.com. I always kept these executables as proof that I had legally purchased the PDFs. You can still run these files under Windows 10 and you get a list of documents the program attempts to download, though the download location no longer exists.

    So should I offer these up to WotC so they can sell them to others?

    Were these when they were sold by SVGames? I don't recall getting certs from them, just unwatermarked pdf files.

    Nope, these were purchased directly from the old TSR online store before it was completely folded into the WotC site in like 2000/2001 or so. Here are a few screen prints from one of the smartcert files that were used to download the PDF:

    Holy shit that is awesome.

    Is that some form-created thing, or just done raw each time?

    I keep a running thread on Roll20 but it's not nearly so organized.

    Yep. It sucked. I've got even more PDFs that I don't have the smartcert executable for, and things I bought from DiveThruRPG back then have begun showing up on my account again. In fact, the quality of the scans is improved over what they were back when I originally purchased them.

    Can you not view certain PDF's without their smartcert executable?

    Obviously this is kzach's fault.

    Nope, you can view them just fine. All the smartcert was for was to download the things and verify you had purchased them. If you look at the screen caps, you'll see that there is a unique number assigned to each. They were just too cheap to invest in technology to watermark them.
