Three unrelated modules designed for novice AD&D characters. Often referred to as the "Lakofka Series", due to author Lenard Lakofka.
The working title for L1 Secret of Bone Hill was "The Restenford Mystery". According to former TSR employee Lawrence Schick, Erol Otus deliberately botched the rear-cover art on L1, because he didn't care for the module. We'll let you decide. The entire module has been released in electronic, freely-distributable format by TSR, and is available in our Library section.
L2 Assassin's Knot comes with a double cover (module booklet nested inside two covers of maps). Thanks to Eric Pass for this info. The entire module has been released in electronic, freely-distributable format by TSR, and is available in our Library section.
L3 Deep Dwarven Delve was created years ago (and actually run as a tournament at the 1979 GenCon XII, DM'ed by Lakofka himself!), but was only recently completed and publicly released in August 1999. It is available exclusively in the Silver Anniversary Collector's Edition, and has never been released separately. Thanks to Adam Shultz for help with this info.
There are no distinguishable printings of L3 Deep Dwarven Delve (thanks to Norbert Jakobs for the scan).
The Second printing of L2 Assassin's Knot, with the header intact, is fairly rare. SW condition assumes the header is present. The Estimated Value on this print is highly subjective, since only recently have we realized its rarity.
L3 is only available inside the Silver Anniversary Collector's Edition, which would seem to indicate that its worth is but a fraction of the complete set. eBay has proven otherwise, however, and mint-condition L3's regularly sell for as much or more than the set in its entirety. The unfortunate side-effect of this valuation is, of course, that many Silver sets are being opened to remove the L3 inside.
