In older issues of Dragon magazine, i've seen some ads for a stand alone Wormy (little dragon from Dragon mag).  Never seen such a book anywhere.  Has somebody seen it ?  Does it even exist?

Here is info about Wormy:  http://www.spies.com/~rawdon/journal/2000/12/30.html  http://clangador.com/terminology.htm  http://home.earthlink.net/~yamara/wormy.html  http://www.hoboes.com/pub/Role-Playing/ ... /(Advanced)%20Dungeons%20and%20Dragons/4%20-%20FAQ  They mention that that Wormy was present from the late 70s to 1998 until it stopped due to Dave Trampier dropping out of sight. Did he pass away? In Dragon #102, Dave solicited orders for a Wormy collection at one point but it presumably fell through. The last site I pasted has most of the crucial info. Hope that helps.

Like with the long-lost Shadowland accessory, I was one of the folks who ordered the Wormy collection, and was similarly refunded.  It was never printed :(

Likewise, I was one of the pre-order folks for the collection.  Along with the refund came a letter of apology explaining how their wasn't a sufficient number of orders to get the project off the ground, and a Wormy button, featuring a "wanted poster" style image of Wormy with the caption "Wanted for aiding and abetting Wormy" (or something to that effect).  I'm sure I have both the letter and the button around here somewhere...

Welcome to the acaeum forums Morlock! Glad I and a few others that rarely post (post more adrian!) could help you out. Anymore questions, etc we'll try to help out as well.

Adrian---  I don't recall a button, though the letter sounds identical.  Maybe they'd run out of buttons by then :(

Arise ancient thread! Just found this a couple of days ago and it reminded me of this post from... 16 YEARS AGO?!? That can't be right. Anyway, here's the certificate that DAT sent to earlier investors.

I still haven't found that darn button, but I haven't completely given up hope yet!

LOL, great find Adrian!  I didn't have the certificate BITD, so presumably Tramp had decided that the book wasn't going to happen by the time I responded :(

Allan.
