#RPGaDAY 2017, Day 20: OOP!

Day 20 of #RPGaDAY asks us about the best source of out-of-print RPGs. Wouldn't that be the publisher themselves? Sure, the physical books might be gone, but you can't go out of stock with pdfs. Over at John Wick Presents, our big thing is the new edition of 7th Sea, but if you want any of the first edition 7th Sea -- or even things from the d20 Swashbuckling Adventures line-- you can get 'em.
