As the proud owner of one too many collector's edition books that just sit on the shelf without use I started to think.
I'm never going to sell these books, their monetary value in the future while it may increase will never increase past their personal and nostalgic value to me. I had the previous version of the Warhammer Fantasy collector's book sit on my shelf having never once been used while an entire edition of the game came and went rendering the book now permanently a shelf decoration.
So the other week I dragged my Rogue Trader book out of its containment vessel and brought it to the game. It felt good honestly. Where does everyone else stand on use these beautiful pieces of work to their gaming table?
