As of right now there are 65.  Ebay keeps counting even after the auction is over.  There were only 12 views when I saw it yesterday.

Well this fun find is not that impressive after seeing the last item posted on the previous page but...
This item arrived at my doorstep just this afternoon.

Image

Dungeon Masters Kit #2 - The Dwarven Glory
A Wee Warriors Production
Dwarven Caverns
Copyright 1976

This is THE map index for the map inside the adventure book which was apparently sold seperately.
It is not in like new condition and a previous owner made notes on the pages inside and on the front cover too (Telling us where to find the map itself).
Until I saw this on E-Bay I did not even know it existed and so this is the ONLY copy I have ever seen of the Dwarven Glory Map Index Booklet.

Welll, I am very pleased to have it even if it aint as special as a $22 BIN for a RPGA-1 in Shrink Wrap...

Now if only I could get a copy of The Dwarven Glory with the map inside...  :roll:

Is that the one with the 17 numbered pages detailing encounters for the dwarven glory mapsheets?  Looks similar to the one I recently purchased but without the handwritten Dwarf Carvens. From what I've been told there are about 7 known copies with the room key and is rarer then the TSR distributed version.

I have one of these as well, 7 copies sounds about right.  It is the rarest of the Dwarven Glory printings :)

Do you know if it the same one as Gnat's as I also hear there may be a third 8 1/2 sized printing but with a large map?  I'm kinda wondering if that is what Gnat's booklet relates?

Has anyone been keeping count on the 1st prints? :)

Not in perfect condition, but I don't recall the last 1st print Greyhawk Folio I saw come by, and that seemed a good price.

I was pleased to pickup the pocket folders!



The second print B1 and third print D1 were a nice little bonus!

I still have a 3-ring binder from that series, and I had a spiral bound notebook, as well.  When I used all the paper in the spiral bound, I pulled the cover off and trimmed the chaff.  I think I have a folder around as well.

Is there a website out there with pictures of all of them?

Tome of Treasures has them.  I didn't realize how many their are.  I think I already had one of these but had never seen the other.

Thanks for the link!  I have the "Berserker Stead" 3-ring binder, the cover from the "Water Beast" spiral bound, and the "Death Rider" folder, which, as I remember now, split down the spine halfway, then I just split it all the way and slid them in a clear outer pocket of some 3-ring binders.

man, those are so cool.  I wish I would have saved my allowance and grabbed the whole set back in the day.

While everyone else was drooling over this shrink-but-bumped to hell one...




** expired eBay auction **




I snagged this unshrinked-but-very-lightly-worn copy.




** expired eBay auction **




Probably the least worn copy I've personally seen. Been trying to find a copy in this shape for a while. Would have preferred an earlier print (and a little better price), but this will do just fine.
