Not sure if this qualifies as a "find", since I've been staring at it through the cybernetic shop window for a while now, but I finally broke down and purchased this Image from NKG. My first acquisition rarer than a DDG w/ Cthulhu, so I'm fairly excited :).

Nice snag... I wish had the dough to grab it.

I still need one of those.

I also still need the 2nd and 3rd Dungeon geos

$2.50 plus tax.

Some shelf wear... no rust. Nice, crisp, white pages.

Did I score?

Some day someone will ask that of a $2.50 purchase and the answer will be "no". Until then... ;)

I'm not sure how long I've known about Field Regulations... The only product lists I could find with it listed were my Tractics (White box, GK logo) and Valley Forge (Lizard).

Does anybody else know what other product lists Field Regulations appeared?

It appears in the product list of my 2nd printing of Tricolor for $2.50.  Cordite & Steel it lists for $3.00.  Modern Armor also lists it for $3.  I checked all my other TSR rulebooks of that genre/time period and it doesnt appear in any of the others.  I dont have Bio One or Tractics though.

I wasnt aware that TSR did three printings of Tricolor.  What is the difference between the second and third printing?

The Tome is a good place for printings (if you can find them :) ) - we have tried to list them all, with the catalog pages etc.

Field Regulations actually has 2 printings:

If they reprinted this one, then it makes me wonder if others have more prints.

Here are the 3 prints of Tricolor:

Since the change is small and on the inside, its tough to track the relative rarity of each print.

Hi,

if you're in the UK, and live near a FLGS (or can order thru the distributor direct) , you might be interested to know that the main distributor in the UK is offerring DELUXE 4th edition books at £10.80 ($15) each atm.

Dumping them already - not a good sign...

Cheers,
Malc

Cheers,

While going through my stacks of adventures so I can better organize my production schedule I came across something long forgotten...

The 1985 module production guide by TSR. This is an in-hous manuscript - dot matrix printer - that was sent to me way back then. I was working on a module (that got sidelined when I joined the Army a year later) [more on that later]. I think John Pickens sent, but it was a long time ago and I might be confused...

Anyway. The manuscript is 40 pages long and contains various subjects including everything from "what makes a good adventure' to mundane items such as how to present statistics. The packet also includes a layout guide with templates for the various pages in the final module.

I am guessing it may be the only one in existence today. No I will not copy it and send it out. But I will bring it with me to North Texas RPG Con for your review!


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