Just thought you'd want to know that the earliest versions of Rahasia have the simple copyright with no address.  We got the p o box at someone's suggestion and we closed it when we moved and were no longer printing Rahasia.

I found a copy in the basement this week and am toying with the idea of putting it on Ebay. -- Laura H  8)

I must say that I am mighty jealous of those who own the Daystar West printings of these two modules. Being as the TSR versions of these modules rank in my top five, with Pharaoh being my second favorite adventure, I would love to obtain copies of such. Unfortunately, being as I haven't the funds of a serious collector, such dreams will most likely never be made flesh. That being said, I still dream of finding a copy in a used bookstore or hobby store one of these days.

Welcome to the Acaeum! Thanks for posting this info.

Since you are the original author and have a copy in hand, I would like to ask if the original Rahasia is written for the original D&D (OD&D) or AD&D? Since it is copyright 1979, I would have guessed AD&D, but Tracy has it listed as "D&D / Original" rather than AD&D on his website.

Other Role-playing Adventures : Tracy Hickman

Just curious, since I've never seen a copy.

I once asked Tracy the "editions" question and he said AD&D 1e is the only version he ever played/ran.

We have a copy of Pharaoh that has the same info listed above with a slight difference. Everything is the same except after Daystar West it has the word Media.

Don't know if the word Media was left out of Paul's info or if this is a different print.

BTW: This copy of Pharaoh will be offered for sale or auction in the next couple of days.
