'Chimera'? Is that the new word for photocopy?


No, I mean it as taking the pages from another book and placing them with the T-1 so I have a complete book. Peices parts to make a whole.

Using the term Chimera from mythology

Chimera (mythology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

Oh. I get it. Sounds real tricky with a bound hardback book?


This week I've been mostly eating . . . minestrone soup.

I thought the term "chimera" applied to the OD&D box sets only... 3 volumes = 3 different heads.  A single volume with parts replaced has been referred to as a "frankenstein".  Perhaps we could use "ettin"?  :lol:

... and a box with missing books could be a "blink dog" copy.

I like Frankenstein lets go with that. Though to keep it is the AD&D vein should we not sue the Ravenloft term. I know it was Adam Awakens or something like that. Were contructs covered in The Created?

The Created (module) was about an evil marionette (sp?) and the city where only children lived (later it was deemed a Gothic Earth realm trapped in the Nightmare Lands - thats in the box set Nightmare lands)

Adam's Wrath is the module you are thinking of.

Now Children of the Night: The Created does deal with constructs (though it is unique ones)

Ravenloft was my first 2nd edition setting that I bought when it was coming out. And for fans of the novels..they are being rereleased with a different look, and some new material is also coming out from Wizards (WW ended their rights to Ravenloft): Expedition to Castle Ravenloft.

Is that a T-1st?  If it is it might be quite interesting to see who the previous owner is being that it seems that the T-1sts seem to only come from those in the industry at the time. :)


Got this today so they shipped almost immediatley. First there is no page that appears to have been written on (middle right photo) as shown in one of the photos. Not sure what I am seeing in that one photo. It does appear to be a T-1st  :D . The cover exhibits the wear associated with a PHB of that era if it was used. It has the blemish near the upper left. The pages inside are unmarked though the edges are starting to yellow some. The name in the cover and on the title page is Glenn Grotefeld. It is a name I do not recognize from the gaming industry. Does anyone here remember that name or know this person? I Googled it and there is someone in Arlington, IL with that name and the address is the book is Wheeling, IL so it might be the same person.

    Chances are he hasn't thought about AD&D since 1979, but it would be interesting if you contacted him.

   'Course...he might also want his stolen 1st print PHB back, too!   :?

The store was in IL as well so it had not moved much. I am thinking he got married and his wife made him get rid of all his old RP stuff so he took it to the local bookstore where he originally bought it...or he sold it for crack. Playing MST3K with gaming books.

Nothing exceptional, but...

cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... T&rd=1

cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... T&rd=1
cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... T&rd=1
cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... T&rd=1

That makes for almost the entire UK set (UK1 and UK2 are somewhat easy to find, plus I already own the former) in a hit, all in shrink, for something aroung 53 dollars. Nice hit.

Dieses war ein gutes kauf. Danke, eBay.de!

Yes, definitely a good price for nice B10 with counters...I sold my beat-up copy with no counters for $34.99 a few months ago.

Both the Q&A and the "extra bonus module" are hysterical. Have fun with that random module, Brian. :)
