I had a question from beer_motor on my T1-4 auction:

"hey man - is this a first printing? looking for a non-first printing, the textual errors annoy me. thanks"

I looked in the book for the errors listed in the Acaeum description, but was unsucessful.  Does anyone have  first print copy handy and a little extra time to reply with an exact quote and a page number to help me answer his question?

Pretty Please?


May Eru's light shine upon you always.

I will check when I get home. I know have sold at least one first print, though. There are three or four printings...can't recall at the moment.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

I'm sure I have a first printing; which errors is beer_motor worried about making sure are fixed?  The editing in general in T1-4 was pretty shoddy....

Look at the description of Fragarach in the back. That's the only serious textual error of which I'm aware (I wonder if mine is a first print? It has the error).

No. There are serious errors in the first 10 or 16 pages. I found them - thanks to acaeum, of course. Basically they are text errors that were probably created during formatting. Sentences that just stop for no reason, etc.

Look on page 9, area 13.  If the 3rd paragraph starts with the truncated sentence:

"The shop is run by one Rannos Davl, who is bed."

then it is a first print.

A lot of the original text for T1 was munged in T1-4.  I haven't ever seen a full compiled list of them, though; does anyone know of one?

Thanks for all the help everyone.  Johnhuck's info proved correct...it's a first print then....sorry Beer.

Yeah - thanks a lot man for looking into it before I bid on it.  I appreciate your honesty.

I LOVE YOU MAN!

I really do want a cheap late print of the module.  Somebody dig me one up!

Christ, I have to get out of law school and get some income.  Being poor sucks.

Easiest way to guarantee a later print is to look for one with the TSR gold angled logo.  And these are generally much mintier in my experience.  Not just because they are a lot younger.  But probably a lot bought as curiousity items 6/7 years after the original release.
