Mars wrote: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.


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:

"Okay, we turn the corner and see a Purple 'WHAT' !?!" . . (the DM rolls a 20 or so he says) . . It all went black right after that.

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.

SOK, I'll have more stuff up soon. I'm thinking of putting up my Silverdawn collection next. The main book and a bunch of the modules. THOSE are pretty rare.
I still have a lot of rare/weird shit to go....


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.
