I have a really tough one for you.  Is there anyone out there who has any of the 1st edition books with my name in them.  I had a friend a long time ago that I lent a box of miscellaneous items Related to Ad&d franchise and was hoping to maybe get a hit.  

I had all the compendiums up to and including the Ctuhulu mythos Dieties and Demigods.

I believe the name would be in the front Jacket "Toby Nelson"

Thanks,

Toby

about 6 years after giving away all my RPG stuff(d'oh!), I actually found my 1st ever DMG in the 2nd hand rack of a local games shop - At the time I wasn't back into the fold so I didnt fork out for it (As I remember it wasnt more than a couple of pounds) - How I wish I could turn back the clock and get it back. (And it was mine - I know from the enscription I put in it! (cringe)!)


You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

You're lucky Al, when I moved in with my Ex (we were 19) she threw a "an old box of papers" out which contained all my character sheets for all of those years. Such luminaries as Argorian Strangebreath, Erwin Filthchewer and Kakkiwox the Insane all vanished. I never could get over to her the size of the disaster involved. I was heartbroken....

oh i am with you on that one all the way. i was utterly devastated at having to sell all my stuff. them last few things, you would have literally had to prise them from my dead fingers to get them off me. thats something i will never ever forgive her for man!

i still have my very first character sheet! my 4th Level Paladin, Borka the Jop :) - course he died mind, when he got attacked by a white dragon (he was trying to run away at the time, i seem to remember)...*sigh* ah well. just couldnt bring myself to delete it or bin it. always brings back such fond memories he does!
