My 10 Favorite RPG Covers...now with pictures!

***Repost:
I was pressed for time and stupidly did not double check this post before I scheduled it to go online and as many of you pointed out there were no pictures. When I wrote the post the pics were there, but I either A) did not save that draft properly or B) accidentally made two posts and deleted the one with the pictures. Regardless the fact that the pics were missing was my mistake. So now I present this post as it was originally meant to be seen. Sorry about the goof up. ****

This list is completely dependent upon my mood and is likely to change, at least somewhat, from month to month, but as of this moment these are my favorite RPG book covers.


  • 10. Rifts Ultimate Edition core rules




  • 9. Rifts: Madhaven














  • 8. Mutants & Masterminds 2e core rules














  • 7. Pathfinder: Advanced Player's Guide














  • 6. 4e D&D DMG














  • 5. Secrets of the Surface World(HEX)














  • 4. Hollow Earth Expedition (HEX)













  • 3. AD&D Unearthed Arcana













  • 2. Pathfinder RPG














  • 1. 2e AD&D DMG

I don't know all these covers so I can't comment on the post, but I did want to drop in and say hello. Hello. Happy almost the end of the week. Hope you ate something yummy today - Whisk

Pictures..the post is lacking without the ability to look at the covers. It's sort of like saying THE BEST RULE EVER MADE IN A RPG GAME IS...found on page 98.

actually it is supposed to have pictures. I will go back and see what I did wrong and repost.
Sorry about that.

Those are some pretty great covers, yes. And a lot of them I hadn't seen before, so that's just cool. :)

Rifts has some really awesome cover art. If I saw that book - either of them - in a store, that cover would definitely make me want to pick it up and read it.

2. Jadeclaw
1. Star Wars (First Edition, D6)

@ Whisk
Today, no, but a few weeks ago I had some seafood stuffed(lobster, shrimp & crab) pasta that that was very yummy.

@kensanoni
I can honestly say I don't think I own copies nor have I seen of any of those books, except the Star Wars d6.
I'll have to look them up.

One thing I did notice after looking over my list was that at least 1/2 of them have large monsters/lizards on them. 4 dragons, 1 T-rex and one Cthulhuish thingy.

Seafood stuffed lobster. Oh my gosh, that sounds fantastic. And I haven't eaten yet today. Hmmmm.
