AD&D 1st Ed. Dieties and Demigods Origional Version

Here is a copy of the origional version of Dieties and Demigods which included the Nehwonian and Cthuluu Mythos. This is a very rare edition. It is in excellent condition (especially for its age). It has been owned and cared for by an adult (i.e. no pencil marks or torn pages etc.). Here is a perfect (and hard to find) addition to any collector's library or for those of us holding on to the First Edition for far too long. Good luck.

lol he has a picture of a 3rd print one hehe
stupid people

Why do 8 out of 10 people write "dieties" instead of "deities"? Does this come from drinking too much diet pepsi perhaps?

Ralf, the simple explanation is:

"i" before "e" except after "c" , unless the word sounds like "a" as in "neighbor" and "weigh"

Deities seems to confuse many - it is sometimes pronounced with a hard "e" as in DEE-a-tees which would tend to support the English thinking to spell it with the "i" before the "e".  

Alternately, it can be pronounced like DAY-a-tees which would give it the "a" sound like in "weigh".  

Oh, and before you bring up the the word "weird" (like in your signature line) - let me add that it is an exception to this rule.  

If I remember correctly, weird is derived from the middle-english world "werde" which was taken from the old English world "wyrd".  At some point in its current evolution, an "i" must have been inserted, while still maintaining the "we" sound.  

(I know I am rambling on, but, you see, if I don't take these little opportunities to use my English major/history minor then all the money  invested in college really is for nothing. . . .  :D  )

Not a thing fuzzy's rule :D , the Hot Rodders have the pair of six siders, gamers should have fuzzy 20's. And on the rearview of what I consider the ultimate in gamer transportation the Pacer or Gremlin you'd be totally styling.

On a side note; if MTV wanted to pimp-my-ride, I'd give them an old 70's Chevy-custom-van, tell them to turn it into a mobile game room with enough room for six "players", a swiveling captain's chair for the DM, and of course those fuzzy 20's would adorn the rearview.

It would be a nice showpiece at cons.  :lol:

OK, check out the condition of this S1 mod:

Described as: "Module is Near Mint."

Should be described as: "Module isn't anywhere Near Mint."

I think most of us know that isn't Satan, (it's an efreet), but an early Dragon and one of the "Best of Dragon" magazine did have stats for Satan himself.  And he's ridiculously powerful, at least by 1st Ed. standards.  If someone has the CD-ROM handy, search for an article titled "The Politics of Hell" and tell me the which one...
