I'm a 15 year old table top gamer the only game i play so far is magic but i DM for D&D. Im looking to expand. first off whats a good table top RPG no strategy games or card games please smile . I have heard of path finder but I haven't really seen any thing or heard stories.

also i am looking to play from now on not DM.

ALSO also where can i buy some of the books and boards or what ever i need for cheap online
the reason i say cheap is because im having trouble finding a job after school

That s a tabletop game.

You want P&P [Pen and Paper] RPGs [Role PLaying Games]

Is that it?

Things like Pathfinder? D&D, AD&D, Shadowrun, BESM, Anima, Dark Heresy, Cthulu-tech, Call of Cthulu.. etc..

Troll and Toad can be very pricey.
Oh sure they have a variety of things. But they are expensive.

If you have access to a Borders/Barne's and Nobles they will carry a variety f Rpg Source books. Also you can look up and maybe direct order stuff, or in the case of a few things like the older BESM download free copies.

I find Troll&Toad good for modules/adventures. I find StrikeZoneOnline good for mini's. But if you're looking for books, I highly suggest using ebay.

That's pretty much the opposite of "cheap".

Honestly, for a game like DnD, you only really need the dice, and a full set will cost about $10 if you don't go for some fancy s**t. The manuals can all be downloaded and used in PDF format.

I find a good place for RPG books is DriveThruRPG.com, provided you like PDFs. I personally keep my laptop on me at all times for note-taking and book references(saves my back), so it's a great place for someone like me.

This.

There's also paizo.com for the Pathfinder stuff, though I find their website is a nightmare to navigate.
So you're just looking for RPs and card games? That's a bit disappointing, I was hoping to steer you toward looking at WARMACHINE.
Your loss, I guess.

Anyways, dice and books are cheap, you should be able to go to damn near any book store and pick up a copy or two. Finding miniatures and terrain for them are a b***h, never-mind the cost. I really don't think it's that hard to find on your own.
