Does anyone have a excel, or other data format, of all the TSR, D&D stuff ?

or does anyone knows a good program which catalog all the collection stuff?

I have a database I created if you'd like it.  It has errors, and it's not complete; but it is more complete than any other list I've ever seen, including the official TSR list and all other fan-created lists.  About 4,500 items currently.  Combined resources (Word and Excel) are about 1.5 megs.

E-mail: [email protected]

The only rule:  It took about 250 hours to create, and it's a charity project, so don't shoot the messenger!  Corrections and additions are always happily accepted.

I don't have it uploaded anywhere, unfortunately; but if anyone wants to host the file, they're welcome to.

Hey Kent, I'll host it.

I think you sent it to me recently... Has it changed much?

Thanks, Jon!  I added a few hundred lines (mostly edition printings of hardcovers and modules and such), and am in the process of simplifying the product categories.  There were also about 30 "new" items that mostly came to light through rshelley's and stormber's recent auctions.  If you can give me a couple days to come up with a v1.2, I'll let you know here when I'm done.

How about having it hosed on the Acaeum?  No offense to Jon's offer, of course, it would juts make sense to me to have it available in addition to (or prehaps replacing) the TSR stock # list we have now.

Glad you liked it, xdol!  I made some improvements.

I thought about asking to host it here, but in the end I decided that it conflicted too much with the Acaeum's mission - i.e., a focus on paper items printed prior to 1990.  My database runs from 1968-2004 and covers everything from modules to coffee cups, so it's a little extreme for the conservative collector.

Who am I kidding?  It's overkill.  It's available to anyone who wants it, though.

I do like that one, foster!  It's in my bibliography if I recall.

There's a few minor problems with it:  Some of the product codes are misleading (for example, X1 with a blue cover is listed as 9043A and with a red cover as 9043B, which is not correct), it doesn't go into much depth on print runs, some codes are false (such as FOR13 for Secrets of the Magister), the boxed sets are incomplete, it doesn't include periodicals, it's not sortable, and it's not customizable.

But the format's a lot nicer than mine, and it's a great general checklist for module collectors.  Definitely a lot easier to print out than mine, too.
:oops:

Just at first glance, i noticed that none of the Adventurer's Guild modules were listed.  

Also, i wasn't sure how much you wanted to included, but i just looked at the Alternity stuff (i knew it would be small) and i also noticed that you didn't included the Dark Matter cards from the Gold Promotion.  Again, not sure how complete you're trying to be, it was just something i noticed.

Looks very nice.


rhea..

Thanks Rhea!  There's still quite a bit to do.

Here's the list of things I know I still need to add.  Some I am doing now, and some need to wait because I can't find any information:

[1] Adventurers' Guild modules
[2] Audio novels (Soundelux, Random House, etc.)
[3] Buttons
[4] Catalogs not already listed
[5] Dungeon! boardgame -- multiple printings
[6] Judges Guild products -- multiple printings
[7] Late 2004 upcoming releases
[8] Midnight Syndicate soundtrack
[9] Patches
[10] Phone cards
[11] Polly S paint bottles (missing some)
[12] Polly S paint chart
[13] Prima Official Strategy Guides (software & videogames)
[14] Promotional kits
[15] Ral Partha BattleSystem 15 mm figures (missing some releases)
[16] Ravens Bluff character folder
[17] Stickers
[18] T-shirts from early Dragon magazines
[19] T-shirt from Sears, possibly exclusive, 1982
[20] Waldenbooks promotionals

And here's the things I plan to cut or not include:

[1]  Licensed D20 System products that are not official (Rokugan, Kalamar, and Ravenloft 3.0, yes; others, no)
[2]  Novels not licensed to the game (exceptions -- TSR fantasy novels, and Quag Keep)
[3]  Unofficial early releases, regardless of popularity (Role Aids etc.)
[4]  Bootlegs or illegal products
[5]  Individual listings of Dragon Dice dice, Spellfire cards, Blood Wars cards, Harbinger miniatures, etc.
[6]  Fanzines and fan-printed newsletters (obvious exceptions such as Crusade Society)
[7]  Non-D&D TSR game systems (Alternity, Boot Hill, Gamma World, Indiana Jones, Marvel Superheroes, Star Frontiers, Top Secret, etc.); the exceptions are tie-in games with a fantasy theme (Dungeon! etc.), and individual books based on these systems, such as in the Endless Quest series, to avoid gaps in the data
[8]  Downloads
[9]  Company catalogs that are not either TSR or Dungeon Hobby Shop
[10]  Items of questionable legality such as fan-taped episodes of the D&D cartoon
[11]  Future industry rumors, or rumored items, without citation of evidence or press release

I must be doing something wrong. I'm try to send you an email via your link, but keep getting an error message.


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

OK, V1.2 is now complete and ready to go.

Improvements:
* Adventurer's Guild modules added
* Approximately 50 odd items added
* Merged and simplified product divisions
* Erroneously coded releases corrected
* Multiple printings for modules, etc. added
* Coded releases re-sorted for ease of reference
* More 2004 releases added

That's probably my last update till summer or so, I've got to get back to focusing on other aspects of my life.  I'll be around every once in awhile, take care everyone

Thanks in advance.
