I also decided that I just couldn't do D&D (of any edition) for awhile. I want something different. I always liked westerns and so I seized on the idea of trying Aces & Eights. Much to my surprise, my gaming group (composed completely of aging gamers with 1st Edition AD&D books gripped tightly in their fists) actually agreed to give it a try.
Unfortunately, I stupidly sold the core rulebook about a year ago because I thought that I would never get a chance to play. Equally unfortunate is the fact that Kenzer does not offer it as a PDF. However, I did download the Showdown PDF from DriveThruRPG.com, which is basically an abbreviated version of the combat rules. This way I can least get familar with running combats. Now I just have to locate a copy of the rulebook and I can get back in the saddle.
