D20 Supplements Worth Owning

One of the dealers at Dragoncon had a table full of D20 supplements and was selling 10 for 10 bucks. I found some by Atlas Games so I picked up all of those, then filled in the holes with some Fast Forward stuff and a couple of Sovereign Stone books.

Once I started reading them, I got really, REALLY inspired. The Atlas Games Penumbra materials were wonderfully written and rich. I just kept finding more and more ways to expand The Great Campaign In My Head(TM) and couldn't wait to read more. The other stuff I got wasn't so hot. I tried to read the terribly disjointed and poorly fleshed-out Dungeonworld book and a Living Arcanis city guide... but they sapped me and made me ill equipped to delve into the Soverign Stone stuff. In the end, I got the feeling that I was just lucky to grab the Atlas Games stuff... and so I started shopping for stuff on Ebay.

But once I got there, I found lots of odd lots running for less than a few dollars per product. It got me wondering if anyone out there is a fan of the third party D20 materials and which brands they respected. I can't stop raving about the quality of the Penumbra line.... so which did you care for?

Warhammer Gluing Help

I got some orcs to paint for villians. They need to have the heads glued on before I can paint/play with them. My husband tried to do this last night with a hobby glue he uses for his RC car tires. The glue dries pretty quick but the heads kept falling off. It's like industrial super glue. Any ideas what we can use instead to keep those heads on?
