I have a beautiful copy of Issue #2 of this Newszine. Which was free at the time.  Does anybody have any more information on it?  obviously there were at least 2 issues but how many more possibly exist?  One of the main features is the newly released Forgotten Realms boxed set.    Any info would be great.

Howdy Len! Nice to have you back. You've got a lot of catching up. Fantastic item you have there. I hope others come forth and can tell us more information about the item and perhaps you can have it submitted to the acaeum!

I had that issue at one time.  I recall that only two issues were produced.  For the most part, it is a product release catalog, like what White Wolf does today.  But it does have a feature article, which in this case focussed on the Forgotten Realms.  Can't remember much more.

Hi Len,  Can you tell us a little more about that item. Does it mention a date anywhere? Do you think it is a dealer flyer or some kind of customer circular? I was trying to read some of the print in the scan and it appears to mentions DragonLance Adventures appearing in some country or something. Does it actually have a full product listing as mentioned on the cover?  Neat item! :D  Adam

Thanks, Adam.  I can tell you what I know (as soon I get the thing out of storage, I will post more info).  I believe it was published in 1987 and I think it has origins in the UK.  I was looking for English giveaways (like using 's' instead of 'z' in words) but with a cursory glance I didn't find any.  Can't remember how indepth the listing was, but I think it was modules only.  I will hopefully have more info this weekend, when I can get a chance to look at it.  -Len

Here's another one to ponder. I have a newsletter titled "TSR Worlds" that was given as a freebee w/ some D&D items I bought at WaldenBooks back in '88. It is in newsprint/newspaper format, Vol.2 No.2 Fall 1988. Main story:"Newest AD&D Hardbound Devoted to Oldest Setting in Role-Playing" which talks about the Greyhawk Adventures hardback. Any info on rarity/value would be great. I'll send a picture to submisions and hopefully foulfoot can post it.  Peace, burntwire

To add info onto the Tsr Worlds item, there are also the following that I know of:  Tsr Worlds Issue #1 Tsr Worlds Vol 2 No 1 Tsr Worlds Vol 2 No 2 <--Devon says he has that  That means Tsr Worlds was available for some time and their are different issues.  BTW: If someone does a thorough search, there is one for sale on Ebay. Get it fast before I do  :wink: If I win it from all the snipers here like burnt, chromatic, etc I will post pics.  :lol:  8)

WTF is that auction link? Come on dave, you linked us to comics? Tsr Worlds should not be mistaken for the Tsr Worlds Annual comic. Its a newspaper type item.   Time for you to go back onto ebay and do some more searching.

DAMN! Everyones after me. Well since the chances some of you will come upon the auction has greatly increased, I have emailed the seller and asked for a private offer to end auction early AND asked if he/she has anymore.  Lets see if I can get this auction ended so none of you get a chance.

Adam asked:

 It seems to be printed on stock that a normal module would be printed on.  Here is some info for you all (I finally dug it out of storage!)  * Printed late 1987 * Definitely UK - Printed on A4 paper * 12 pages in length  * The module listing only shows the ones being published for 1987 * Basically a What's new newsletter with about a half page of print (description) dedicated to each module listed on the front page.  The Forgotten Realms has about 2 pages dedicated to it.  More info to be revealed possibly with Scott's Update.  :wink:
