Weird gaming dream from last night - a friend had just been to the FLGS and had picked up not only a 1st edition Dungeon Master's Guide, but the most recent edition of D&D (not the Fourth). I picked up the new DMG, which had a dark purple cover with maybe ogres or something on it, and flipped through it - it was nice, glossy, heavy paper, but it was the same illustration as the cover... OVER AND OVER. Nothing else! The friggin' CREDITS and title page didn't even show up until something like page 53. I do believe I made some snarky comment about how much the 1st Ed DMG had covered by page 53, which is about all I remember of that scene.
Still, from the overproduced monstrosities WotC has published... I could see it happening.
