Lucky dog.  Wouldn't want to part with that would you?:wink:

It would be neat to see what changes were made during the editorial process.  Some are rather mundane (typos etc.) but other changes alter the adventures significantly.

Frank's current example: ... otohosting

Might make a good thread if we could find enough interest.

Dragonlance! You guys! That was the GOOD stuff, not this overrated high priced RPGA crap, or that other junk, what the heck was it called, something to do with little booklets and cute little metal men....

Badass bodice ripping barmaids! Foxed out "dirty girl" high priestesses with ONLY hair feathers as wardrobe! Porny elves getting it on with dragons! Nuff said!

:lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:  :lol:

:oops: Yeah, I own the whole series....... :oops:

But otherwise I only collect the AD&D and D&D lines, not the Dark Sun or Hollow World, not even Forgotten Realms...I ain't no slummer.... :P

Yeah okay I'll admit it: I have 99%+ of Dragonlance, Ravenloft, Birthright, Spelljammer, Greyhawk, Al-Qadim, Planescape, Mystara, Lankhmar, Odyssey, Monstrous Arcana, Red Steel, OD&D (dealing with the Known World), 2nd Ed mods..
I love Ravenloft (it needs more love!), never ran Dragonlance (though love the older novels, and liked the modules since I like to know what was left out from those)..Favorite though is anything Known World/Mystara (used it a lot and really enjoyed running the mods)
Printing completist only with Thieves Guild (wasn't trying to be, but then everything years ago was available), and Judges Guild* (I choose to be..but some :wink: make it difficult.)

*Missing perhaps 2 dozen known items, not including mailers.

But another one I've never liked much is Ravenloft. Yes, I6 is a great module, but as a campaign setting it leaves me cold. Does anyone really play the setting itself as a continuous campaign? If I want horror, I find Call of Cthulhu much more compelling. And players get pretty peeved when the DM announces, "A mist is fast approaching, and voila, you're now in Ravenloft." Groans are then audible all around the table with the refrain of not again...

On the flip, I'd rate Dark Sun the most underrated setting with Al Qadim a close second.  

But as for the original question, yeah, I'm a completist and collect them all because I'm a D&D junkie.  :wink:

i've ran campaigns in the ravenloft setting quite a few times and each time the PCs have really enjoyed it. i think its like everything. if you put the effort into getting things right and running it properly, it comes off and is a great game.

Might as well chase print runs as I look for those few items I still need. Keeps me interested and up to date on all the others  :D

When I first got online in the early 90s, I got a complete set of Judge's Guild stuff because I'd always heard about it but was only able to run across 2-3 items in the 80's due to Texas being a non-TSR backwater during that time.  Only after I got all of them did I start reading them....
  Fortunately, I started with "Wraith Overlord" and thought "Wow, some of this JG stuff is pretty decent!  I might actually use this!  I wonder if it all is this good?"
  Unfortunately I then continued with Under the Storm Giant's Castle...gulp.. :cry:
     I still have the complete set of JG items, but I've only used a handful over the years, and a few are so bad I just keep around to giggle at or show to others to laugh at.  As bad as a few of them are, I don't think I'll sell them, if nothing else they are fun to read through.
