The only reason I can see not to list them is purely by publication date. Isn't there a 1996 or 93 cut off date?


Actually, the FAQ states:
"We've chosen to concentrate on 1st Edition (pre-1990) material for a number of reasons."

But there are exceptions to this, such as the Silver Anniversary package and the 1997-1999 RPGA modules:

   (For that matter, how many--or which--books were printed in miniaturized versions, and anyone know why it was done?)


Sleepy, try these threads:

viewtopic.php?t=1851

viewtopic.php?t=3502

The books were printed on license to an Italian company, who presumably saw profit to be made in such novelty items. They do seem fairly popular :D

It would be nice to have a page with the 1E mini prints included. I'm sure there's lot of stuff Foul would like to add; it's probably just a matter of time/priority.

Not sure I would have had Gary sign it quite the way he did though.  I would think this would surely devalue the set, but someone will probably see it differently.




It is a strange place to have him sign it..... 8O

Yeah, I saw that, and the "Wild Things" is 3-hole punched.  Maybe I should expand on my original comment.  Not a bad lot, but not too good either. ;)  

Not sure I like the statement "D&D - Huge Lot - Nearly 100 Pieces" when most of the pieces are the remnants of box sets...

Does this necessarily increase the value of it, in the general market? Looks like an ugly blemish to me.

Yes, these have RPGA5-8. Also:

#20 has Bigby's Tomb (R6)

#24-26 have the three parts of the Needle (later I11)

#28 has Bugbear Hunt (R5)

There are more modules in other issues:

Boot Hill miniatures rules + box set.




** expired eBay auction **




Seller's feedback is a bit ugly though.  The guy got a neg on his first auction!  :lol:

I contacted the seller, nice fellow, unfortunately most of the Polys are missing the adventures, and the rest are detached but included...

Unfortunately, I did not think to ask. I already had my bid posted with the assumption that if the mags were not complete an informed seller would let us know in the items description...................

Looks like I blew it..... Been gone too long. :roll:

I have asked the seller to allow me to revise my bid significantly lower. We shall see.

Well the good news is that the ones that usually generate the most interest(#'s 16-19) are still included, even though they are detached.  :)

The seller seemed truly remorseful he didn't know that the items were supposed to contain adventures, so perhaps he'll let you cancel your bid.I've got burned on these Poly numbers many times; almost all the time they are missing the adventures, yet the sellers never seem to list this information.
