I know that these have been discussed on another thread, but I cannot find it....

    Apparently, there are some mini adventures by TSR that were licensed and printed by an overseas distributor.



    These are NOT miniature figurines.  They are half-pint copies of actual publications.



    I just bought one (see link) and I want to know if I got a cool deal or if I suck or both or neither.   :lol:



   This one is Elminsters Ecologies.  Did I get a good deal?  Is anyone else collecting these things?

I have some of these (they were published by an Italian publisher who has bankrupted), but I don't find much interest in them. Actually, as soon as I managed to get the original manuals or boxes, I gave these to a friend of mine as a gift.

My shortsight is quite bad even if I don't force myself to use these things.

Anyway, getting them for a couple of dollars is rather cheap, so if you are interested, I don't think you could get them for less.

I think the seller may have bought out the print run on Elminsters Ecologies. He has been selling them at that price for for a year or so if I remember correctly. I bought one from them at that price just to see what the mini box sets were like. I had seen the mini books in the store back when they were being sold in retail. I think the other books go for the $5 to $10 range depending on the bidder.

I just (this week) purchased that from the seller for the same price, so I think he may have a few stashed away.

The other mini boxed set that I'm aware exists but goes for a lot more is the Menzo boxed set & I think there are minis of the Basic & Expert boxed sets as well. (Also the DL series & wilderness guides etc.)


Mount Celestia doesn't want me and Baator's afraid I'll take over.

I have them all, they are really cool actually, complete mini versions of the box sets and hardcover books, right down to maps and handouts.  Check out the mini Menzo set, there is even mini basic nd expert sets as well.

The dragon lance module series is quite common on Ebay.  The seller from the original post has had one (or several) listed for months now:

I've never seen the menzo boxed set.  I have seen a mini-undermountain boxed set a few times.  A set of mini phb, mm and manul of the planes went for around $25 a couple of weeks ago.

They are cool.  Is this the thread?

viewtopic.php?t=1851&highlight=twenty+first

If I remember correctly, there's another thread that discusses them as well, but it's buried.

Aaron at NobleKnight usually has a nice selection at reasonable prices.  The two Dragonlance sets come up on eBay frequently from studioonellc.

Yes, they were done by the Italian firm "21st Century" to mark the 25th anniversary of D&D.

They're all excellent quality reprints, perfectly usable by anyone with good eyesight; or with a magnifying glass at any rate.
