Day 10: First gaming magazine you ever bought (Dragon, Dungeon, White Dwarf, etc).
When I first started playing D&D we played it fairly RAW (run as written). This was mostly by default as we couldn't afford any of the supplemental publications. We knew about the Dragon Magazine but none of us could afford them. It was as I got older and started getting some disposable cash that I went back and tracked down a lot of the older Dragon Magazines. By then our gaming group had all graduated from high school and I was running my own games with my own set group of players. I didn't tend to allow much of the character options, but I did use a bunch of the monsters, spells, etc for my world building.
