No real hope down here with the bookstores.

I had an nice Craigslist find recently with over 130 d&d fiction books and stacks of Warhammer fiction.  I just read Outcast..... from that lot.  Dark Sun is a very strange world, lol.

It is a shame that the Dark Sun sub web on the Acaeum was never completed.

Not enough member interest I would guess.

Yeah. If you're gonna do Dark Sun, you might as well do Spelljammer and Dragonlance to boot.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

DragonLance is a big ask but some of the smaller campaign settings (small in number of items produced) like Al-Qadim, Dark Sun, Birthright, Spelljammer should be manageable.  Same goes for some of the other TSR games, like Indiana Jones, Conan, Star Frontiers, Amazing Engine, etc.

Should be interesting to see if older Dark Sun material will rise in price with the release of the new Dark Sun items.

I was speeking Iron Orcish. As with the other one there (Planescape?), there seems little interest in any of the esoteric stuff. If anything, the board could use a dedicated d20 thread as there is now so much d20 being discussed on what used to be the non-TSR thread, or a dedicated non-TSR Pre-2E subweb.

Totally agree with you about the usefulness of a D20 Sub-Web page.
Perhaps D20 and 3.x edition combined?
There is a lot of great stuff in those areas with plenty to talk about.

Same could probably be said for the new "Old School Feel" materials cropping up now.

There does seem to be sufficient interest amongst the members here to justify a D20/3.x sub board. It's certainly helped me become aware of several items in the last few weeks, a few of which I have managed to pick up already  8)

It wouldn't need to be a subweb, just a seperated thread section of the main board. That way the non-TSR section could be more classic non-TSR focussed. I'd be happy to help out or moderate. I just don't have the time to run a full blown subweb like the JG subweb.

Our D20 conversations are generally limited to about six or eight threads.  Could those threads be completely transfered to a D20 subweb?

** expired eBay auction **




A huge thank you to Mr. Spock who noted this auction. I have been extremely out of tracking ebay for the past few months.

But I am happy as I was only after one item in the lot...I bet you can guess what that was.


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

Gee TSR has some odd stuff. I just got a TSR game called 'Party Zone Spy Ring Scenario" for 50 cents in the local op shop. Wooo Hooo.



What is this? Lazer Tag?

Didn't they have Lazer Tag in Australia?  Think of paintball except with guns that shoot beams of light.  You wore a harness that had zones where you could get hit - it would light up if someone's beam hit it.  Once hit you were out.  The still have places over here where you can go play this.

Yes. Come to think of it. Last year my eldest son was invited to a birthday party and they had a sort of lazer shooting thing. Did not realise that was a TSR creation.

I don't think Lazer Tag is a TSR thing but they tried to capitalize on the fad by releasing a couple of books for it (I think there are two books).  I have them somewhere but I don't think I have ever cracked them open so I'm not exactly sure what they contain - maybe its a pen and paper tabletop version of lazer tag or a book of lazer tag scenarios like hunt the rabid Yazarian.
