I wonder why Titan Games wouldn't specify what the misprint was, or answer any questions? Looks like Tony Ass Wop is up to his misselling tricks again.


I have downloaded the image and looked through my photoshop - the 7,98 $ price tag is present in the bottom right corner - as is in my copy too.

If you look closely, you see it.

The photo is awful tho...

If anyone is interested, I could send a pic of mine to see how it looks.

Got that. I stand corrected. :oops:
It looks suspiciously like my copy though. Mine has black lines above the characters, and white lines below the characters too. Whadda ya know. I have a $200 misprint too. I'll wait for the one I have up to sell, and follow up with a 'rare misprint complete with maps'. Bet I won't get $200 for ot though. :(
Out of curiosity, is there a slight misalignment in the text on your 2nd edition copy, Deadlord?

heh, heh... *looks suitably underwhelmed*

Thanks for running that comparison.
Hardly the world's greatest printing offset, is that? ;)

I just happened upon this one as I was sniffing around the burntwire brothers auctions. This one is another one from our old friend: :roll:

I am tempted to contact the second place bidder and offer mine up for his losing bid.

WOW!!!

Last year I puchased shrinkwrapped First Print Mono's of all 3 of the Giant Series Modules in a single acution for a little bit more that the winning bid for the single module in that listing and almost immediately afterward I was a little concerned about paying so much for them.

Now I am happy that I did.... 8) 8)

It seems to me that E-Bay is most certainly a sellers market right now.
Damn.... It just dawned on me that I'm not a seller. CRAP!!! 8O
Double Damn!! I am a buyer!! Double CRAP!! 8O 8O

I guess that also means that the good times are over for me an my fellow collectors/buyers......

What a bummer that is...........

I probably know a lot less about TSR's products than I should. I've been concentrating on non-TSR modules. Was there a difference between a US released module and a UK released one?

Other than the GW Fairy on the cover, I am pretty sure no.
