I grew up playing 2E, and lately have grown nostalgic for it. Sadly, I sold off my early-run books in college. I know that there was a set of "revised" core books, and that they have much less exciting art on their covers. What else changed?
Although some people have referred to that run as "edition 2.5," I found a web page about 2E revised that indicates that the changes are minor -- but that there's a huge increase in page count. Is it just layout changes?
The other way to ask this question is: if I am nostalgic for 2E, will I be stymied by changes found in the revised books?
