Hey everyone.  I have been working on a list of module inserts.  As you all know, many of the earlier modules had unnumbered inserts and no table of contents at the beginning.  

So, I have compiled this little list.  Only modules without a Table of contents are included.  At the end of the description I might have something like (pg. 14-15).  This indicates which pages the inserts are between.  Several modules have questions marks ?.  I don't currently have those and/or don't remember.  So, feel free to post the correct info so I can update my list (also feel free to correct me if I made a mistake).

I also posted this on my website as an excel spreadsheet (the URL is at the bottom).

Very good ... this should be mandatory reading for new collectors.  And also for new sellers who state "I know nothing about this game, but everything is mint and complete and in fantastic shape."
:lol:

I'll try to add some more when I have copies.  Might also want to include double covers and poster maps, too, which I think is all available from the TSR archive.

Yes, I use that site all the time.  The reason I made this list was to cover the few things that weren't mentioned there or on the Acaeum.  Though, I am sure I can consolidate it.

By the way. . . that reminds me!  Who maintains the TSR archive?  I know they must be a member here. . . .

Many, many thanks!  It is an invaluable resource!!!

:D

I hate large box sets, always hard to be sure if they have all the damn maps

Traveller - is yours a mono?  Mine is Brown and is not perforated, but I don't have a mono handy.

*laughs*

It'd better be.  It's the mono you sent me when you were giving away stuff a couple of months ago.  I'm the guy who wanted the Basic and Expert rulebooks with the Otus covers as well as that tattered B1 mono.

By the way, I've gotten that mono into usable condition again, with a little help from Dupont, Elmer's, and Scotch.

Thought so. . . I remember all free stuff I give away for all time until the debt is repaid. :twisted:  

ummm. . . never mind, don't give a second thought to your soul. . .

Cool, thanks for the info. I will update shortly.  Mono has perforated last page, Brown cover does not have perforation.

Don't forget inner sleeves. In my experience these seem to be missing a lot since there is generally no indication for the uninformed they should be there.  Off the top of my head:  B10, C4, C5, G1-3 (compilation version), WG4, S3, UK4, and I6 I know have those. I don't have a copy of UK6 handy but I think it might also.

There is a wealth of good information here. Too bad the links are dead. Love to see this completed, would be a great resource to Collectors and Sellers.

If this info has already been compiled online somewhere and is still available, would love for someone to point me in that direction.

Adrian Newman's site @ TSR Archive does a great job of compiling this info, but IIRC he's still rebuilding parts of it (see his news page @ http://www.tsrarchive.com/whatsnew.html), so you may need to use the archive.org instance of his site for some content:  TSR Archive

Adrian:  any status updates you can share? :D

Things are still moving along well! The old site is still around at several locations... http://tsr.bothgunsblazing.com/ is up and running for sure. Like you said, the new version is at http://www.tsrarchive.com/. Pretty much all OD&D, Basic and 1E is done. Most 2E is up, just finishing off Forgotten Realms and some strays. I'm constantly adding to the other TSR sections and even putting up a fair amount of non-TSR stuff that's of interest to me and probably some other collectors. It's all fairly accurate at this point but I'm always thankful for additions and corrections!

Thanks Allan and Adrian. I saw that some time ago and didn't bookmark it. I kept thinking I must have mistaken it for Wayne's Books somehow. Either the mind is seriously going or my organization is just that poor. Probably some of both :)

Mister Yuk you are the master of thread necromancy. If Boston Harbor was dredged they wouldn't bring up as many old posts as you have! :-)

*Ahem* There is always the Collector's Database that I put together. Send me a PM with your email address and I will get a copy to you.

I love it!

I wish there were a hundred hours in a day sometime. I'd start with Page 1 and read this whole forum, there is so much good stuff in here and I haven't been around for most of it. I try to stop myself most of the time but I see enough of you all that were active early on are still here (which is amazing in it's own right)  so I bring that Post right back out. I do worry sometimes that I'm breaking an unsaid rule or trying to pile work up on some of you. Damn new guys, right ;)

I'll tell you what though. I'm new here, I'm also relatively new on Facebook and I've joined a bunch of Collectors or Seeking Help Groups. I see in them the same questions being asked and answered over and over again. A simple search could have easily answered their question. I've done that here at least one time - and that is the one thing I don't want to be. I'll see a Post like this or the Board Game one and I'm just "this is great, let's keep going with this" or "cool Post, there's a whole lot of newer people like me that weren't here when this was originally going - let's see if anyone else wants to contribute" Stuff that I'd love to see more people get involved with if they want to.

It might be wrong for me to load these old Posts on top of the more current Ones but I don't bring up the old Posts talking about Football games or the like so, at least I'm not totally trippin... :lol:

Personally I think it's great the enthusiasm you show...I like that you dig and revive old threads, it's fresh and very welcomed on my part  :wink:
