I finally made it out to a gaming store called Games Plus in Mount Prospect Saturday and I was quite impressed. They are loaded with dice of all types and colors. They have DnD miniatures of all type (The metal ones you have to paint). They are very big on Warhammer it seems. But what really impressed me is that they have A LOT of DnD books and other RPG books going back to second edition, maybe even first edition. They had every "Good" Ravenloft book before the authors started controdicting the older ones. They also had some interesting books including a Ravenloft novel, Tower of Doom. I say we check it out one day for the heck of it. Also the place is pretty close, maybe a 25 to 30 minute drive from here.
