Wasn't there a Basic Set with similar character sheets for sale a while ago?  Did anyone ever figure out what they are?

Are those "Tom Wham" character sheets, yellow and orange versions, missing the covers?

Brenfrow has a picture of the blue version, and the sheet looks identical to those in the auction, save for the color:
http://home.flash.net/~brenfrow/dd/dd-pcrs9014-a.htm

The Acaeum page mention other colors:
http://www.acaeum.com/ddindexes/miscpag ... acter.html


1977:  Character Record Sheets.  Tom Wham artwork on cover.  Lizard logo, and states "TM Reg App. For".  Top-tearing pad with 25+ sheets (actual number appears to be somewhat random).  TSR stock # 9014.  Versions with blue or green covers and sheets have been reported (other than colors, they appear identical). (Thanks to John Justice for help with this info).  Another variation has recently been spotted, which is apparently much rarer than the versions described above: a side-tearing pad of 27 sheets, with pale orange-colored cover and internal sheets, and three-hole-punching along the left-hand side (thanks to Hussain Zaman for this info).

1979:  Character Record Sheets.  Tom Wham artwork on cover.  Wizard logo.  Copyright still reads "1977", but "TM Reg App For" has been removed.  Versions with blue, yellow, or green covers and pink, orange, or green sheets have been reported (other than colors, they appear identical).




Or were you asking if anyone has figured out which printing they are, or if they are top or side-tearing sheets?

The tan sheets are definately the Wham sheets. Picture is not so clear on the sheets behind them, but they did also come in yellow.


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

Hey Al,

I hope that I did not tip everyone off to these items if you were in "Stealth mode" 8) . I just thought this was the place to share about cool & interesting stuff on eBay. BTW, what the heck are these items, as I have never seen or heard of them before. Maybe they are BEFORE my time :wink:  . . . not that I am trying to say you're older or anything like that.

Take care,

Ya, its pretty hard to slip one by these guys.  These auctions are Frank's as well so even though I don't think he ever promotes them here, they are most likely to be found anyway.

Necromican is a book of spells, Booty and the Beasts I am guessing is monsters and treasure.  These two are from 1979 and by Erol Otus (and others) who did some great art for TSR as well.

Infernax is also a spell book by Dave Casciano who also did a book on dragons and a bunch of wargames under various company names.

They are all rare.

Afterglow has some information:
Fantasy Art Enterprises
A collaboration of fantasy artists Steve Reich III and Erol Otus, two former TSR employees. Don't be mislead, though, the books below were made before Mr. Otus made artwork for TSR. Sure these books are rare and little-known items today. Here's a list of the titles as given to me by Francois Gromer:
   * The Necromican. Book of spells with nice Erol Otus cover released in 1979.
   * Booty and the Beasts. Monsters and Items.
   * Magical and Technological Items Cards
   * Geomorphic Mini Dungeon Modules. This 1979 release comes as 5 sheets of stiff, light blue paper, divided into squares of dungeon maps (about 2" long) you can fit together in any combination to build a dungeon.


I believe that "Steve Reich III" is the same person as "Paul Reiche III" from various 1980-1981 TSR products:
http://www.pen-paper.net/rpgdb.php?op=s ... torid=3082
I'm not sure if "Steve Reich III" is an error in Afterglow, or if he is listed that way in these two products.

The Wikipedia entry for Reiche confirms the Otus connection:
A childhood friend of early Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) artist Erol Otus, Reiche became interested in gaming as a teen. He and Otus played role-playing games together and released a few small games in the genre. Eventually, both wound up at TSR (the then publisher of D&D). They made contributions to the evolving game and other games by TSR, Otus with artwork, Reiche with game design. Eventually Reiche left TSR to work on computer games with Electronic Arts (EA).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Reiche_III


And suprisingly, Amazon has an entry for BntB and Necromican:
http://www.amazon.com/Booty-Beasts-Dung ... F8&s=books
http://www.amazon.com/Necromican-Dungeo ... F8&s=books

Both are listed as:
"THIS TITLE IS CURRENTLY NOT AVAILABLE. If you would like to purchase this title, we recommend that you occasionally check this page to see if it has become available. "  :wink:

The Amazon entry for BntB has some more information on this product:
Exceedingly rare supplement by artists that would later work for TSR. "Contained in this volume are new monsters, including demons, robots, and parasites, and new magical and technological treasures. Many of these monsters and treasures are of a more powerful nature than will be found in most fantasy role-playing campaigns. This is intentional, for we feel that this will provide a greater challenge and incentive to those more experienced players who, since fantasy role-playing has been around now for a number of years, must be acquiring higher and higher level characters. We also include less powerful monsters such as Fungus Men, Termite People, Goons, etc., and low power items such as the Doorknob of Unrestrained Entry, Vibroblade, Breathing Device, etc. In addition, we provide several charts and lists in the back of this book to aid in the playing of these monsters and treasures. Finally, these monsters and treasures are not intended to stand by themselves but rather to add to the hundreds of monsters and treasures already available."

Interesting, I never made the Reiche connection before.  The books are listed on Amazon because Wayne's World of Books had copies and he sells his stuff through amazon.

Changing topics, but here is a nice lot with DA3&4, the IM series, and the M series. The conditions vary, but I think this will exceed a reasonable price, as people may really want certain items: :wink:

This is an adventure pack by Games Workshop in the Dungeon Planner line - comes with a map, a screen, an adventure, etc.  The other set in the series is called Nightmare in Blackmarsh.
