by John and Laurie Van De Graaf
O2 Blade of Vengeance
by Jim Bambra

Quest for the Fazzlewood was published by Metro Detroit Gamers, who also published Lost Caverns of TsojconthIt was used as a tournament module at Wintercon VII in 1978, and later publicly released (probably in very small quantities).  The module was expanded (and many of the names inside were changed) into O1 Gem and the Staff by TSR in the mid-1980's.

Quest for the Fazzlewood

  • First (1978):  12 loose-leaf pages along with a "Player Evaluation Sheet" used to score the players' performance (13 pages total).  Three of the pages are single-sided, while the rest are double-sided.  This was the actual module distributed at the tournament.  According to Paul MacDonald (a DM at the tournament), some copies had a wrap-around cardstock cover, and some did not (though we have not spotted any non-covered copies).  All copies are unbound (loose-leaf sheets), and originally came in a Ziploc bag.  According to Paul J Wood (design director of the module), the print run was approximately 300 copies (and this is in-line with similar tournament module print runs).  Incidentally, Quest for the Fazzlewood was also sold at Wintercon VIII in 1979 (a year after it was used at Wintercon VII).  Thanks to Christie LeBlanc, Jeff Philbrick, and Paul MacDonald for help with this info, and to Christie LeBlanc for the scan.

Auction Commentary

While Quest for the Fazzlewood is as rare as its more famous tournament-module brethren (Lost Tamoachan, Ghost Tower of Inverness, Lost Caverns of Tsojconth), its obscurity, and difference in title from its TSR successor O1 Gem and the Staff, have tended to keep it from the astronomical value estimations of the others.  Recent sales, however, have been equitable to other high-dollar items.
