Finding out today at the local bookstore there is a book for D&D 3.5 about sex. This makes me feel old. If I want to play D&D, I want D&D. If I want to rp sex, I'll go to a chat room!!

Actually, it was kind of useful for a number of things, like fertility rates and pregnancy times for various races. At least the old "Unlawful Guide to Carnal Knowledge" was.

Yes. And, yes. The second one is not a newsflash, Lich. I've lived in Georgia since the before the worldofkrynn.com, ROE.com days.

And SL, why are they needed? Why is sex a part of D&D at all? Sex RP is for chat rooms.

If you want to know how long elf pregnancies last, how easy it is to knock up a dwarf, ideas on interbreeding beyond 'half-elf', and Fortitude save DCs for STDs, the books were useful. We never needed rules for determing how long someone could last or 'how was it for you?".

Yes, I know...

The book is roughly ten years old... it was an attempt at humor, pointing out your lack of prior knowledge probably stems from living in a geographical area where RPG books in general, might be hard to come by. Especially one that deals with fornication and interracial breeding.

Hell, I've got B&N, and Used bookstores for gaming books. This doesn't help much. I did find it amusing the used bookstore where I found, it had the whole book wrapped in one of those cable anti-theft devices (like Wal*Mart uses on wireless routers in the box).

Of course not having anyone to play with except my wife for years hasn't helped me keep current on the D&D game. I just started playing in a game recently, and found I need to get 3.5 books, so trip to the bookstore.... and no one has a 3.5 PHB, but there is the book about sex.... it was a WTF moment to say the least.

By the way, why are used D&D books running $25-35 now?

Because they're out of print and still in demand... you should see what old Planescape boxed sets are going for. My group is about Pathfinder now... done by the Piazo dudes who took over the ass-end of Dragon and Dungeon magazines, basically D&D 3.75.

Because playing 4th edition was like playing Monopoly with a Ouija board. The rules were there, but they didn't really work outside of combat. Which really puts a damper on the game.

Pathfinder is awesome. Like 3.5 only better, more fun, cooler and more flavorful in just about every way.
Sure, they've upped the power level a little (not really enough to make a biog difference in actual power, but makes things far more flavorful, made it a bit safer (all of the old save or die spells now just deal damage, for instance).
