Oh yeah....forgot about that. :oops:

The one in the Acaeum library is labeled with place names, etc whereas the one in the auction is not. Interesting. Were those written in by hand by someone based on the description in the Domesday Book text?

Ah, "welcome Elf"... :)


I thought Frank had edited those out for the sale but it looks rather neat on the pass, for example, if so.

*awaits confirmation, interested*

I've double-checked on another copy of #13 in my possession, and the placenames are indeed missing from the Domesday published version.

There is an accompanying article in D13, details from which could easily have been written onto the map here.

Hmmmm.... where'd our file map come from?

Your "file" or the Acaeum "file", Frank?

If the latter, I presume that was scanned from the copy Mike/<IO> bought, in which case it originally belonged to RJK(?).

Didn't look "written on" (apart from the mill, phps?) but I guess that's the most obvious explanation, rather than two print runs(!).
Think I'll dig out some period handwriting to compare, later, since I can't see any particular differences in the script on the map/grid.


Thanks for checking. :D

Yes. There appears to be at least one other item that was not part of the box set to be includded with that lot.  With this one I would say a hex refers to more than a spell :)

From what little of the hex sheet is showing it looks a lot like the ones that came with Fantasy Trip's Melee and Wizardry.

The Acaeum scan is/was my personal copy, which I obtained in a stack of other loose materials about ten years ago on eBay.  Most of the material was RJK's -- a sample dungeon map or two, some correspondence, etc.  When we tried to verify the origin of the items, RJK indicated that he suspected they were part of a large theft of D&D material from his home many years ago, though he wasn't sure.

Somebody later told me the map was identical to the one published in Domesday #13.  Obviously, there's a few differences.  The final version of the map appeared in First Fantasy Campaign by Judges Guild.

Interesting... Thanks for that info, Scott. :)
The Acaeum scan appeared at roughly the same time as Paul was in touch with RJK to pull together items for auction and/or referred back to the previous failed sale, so I presumed it tied in with that.

Loose sheet, then, rather than yet another(!) Domesday #13: in which case, titled on an original page and then repro'd, perhaps?

Indeed. That would be only the second copy I've ever seen.

Nope, not related to the RJK auctions at all; I've had the papers for about eight to nine years now.

In response to a private message sent to me, I'll post the full story here, to belay the inevitable questions:

The papers mostly consist of things that were sent by Gary Gyagx to Andre Norton, when Norton was preparing her novel "Quag Keep". The papers were designed to try and convey the spirit and substance of D&D. It consists of a typewritten letter from Gary, two (sample) character sheets (one from Rob, the other from Dave Megarry), a dungeon map of Rob's, some TSR fliers, and the aforementioned Blackmoor map.

I sold the letter and the Blackmoor map about eight years ago, though I have scans of both. At the time of the sale, we were trying to figure out what the materials were about, and especially if the dungeon map was from Castle Greyhawk. Gygax said he remembered sending the materials to Norton, but doesn't remember what happened to them.  The buyer ran into Rob at a convention (I believe), and showed him a scan of the map, and Rob said he believed that it was part of a stash of items that were stolen from him sometime back. I don't remember if he indicated that the Norton materials were also his, though how he would have come into possession of them, I don't know.

It's my cautious opinion that Rob is mistaken. The dungeon map -- which is not from Castle Greyhawk, but looks based on the Blackmoor / City of the Gods line -- is probably just a sample that Rob whipped up in order to be included in the Norton materials. The guy I bought them from (off eBay) was an older book collector, who didn't have much of an idea of what they were.

That's the long story. If there was anything of remote interest to the hobby in there, I would have shared it long ago.

Cheers,

Foul
