This arrived in the mail today:


** expired eBay auction **


but I need to spend some time with my other copies this weekend to determine whether it's a fake or not.  I saw some telltales that look disturbing while flipping through it.

I don't recall other Pagan items coming up as fakes recently, but I also don't know that we'd be as likely to find them as at www.Yog-Sothoth.com

Wow! If it is not a fake, what a good find! I still need one.

The listing probably hosed him from selling it for more.  Butchered the title, the description and the response.

Pagan Publishing Courting Caos game module for the Call of Cuthulu RPG

Game Play module for the Call of Cuthllu RPG system.

On Sep-29-14 at 19:40:37 PDT, seller added the following information:

Whoops I meat courting Madness game play module.

Good snag, if it's authentic of course.

Even if it turns out to be a fake (which I don't think it will), that's a great price to be able to have one to use and cut up and play with!

Great buy Allan!  

I doubt it is a fake - but am curious to ask why you think it may be so, or rather, what suspicious signs you have seen? Happy to check mine if that is any help?

Also, if you post the number (1-200), I reckon people here can check on the unlikely chance it duplicates any of theirs. < jealous >

Posting a public listing could aid a forger.

Well, after some comparing to my other copies, I'm certain that the CM is authentic.  It had been awhile since I had looked at one of my two copies (one of which is incomplete and missing the Ausberg auction pamphlet :( ), so when I first looked at the above copy, it raised some hackles.

Very true on all counts!

Thankfully it's not a fake, so I'm not planning to cut it up atm, Steve ;)

I simply noticed several of the standard telltales for fakes in the copy that we've discussed in other threads, but I had also forgotten how low-budget/low-production values the book was in general, so after comparing to the other two I own, I'm certain it's genuine.

So today I received the first three issues of Tortured Souls

Needless to say I was quite happy! I picked them up on ebay for less than $50 total I think.

Not a real rare find but one I'm so glad to add to my collection

Maybe this should be a 'should-have-been-TSR' fun find. I was very surprised to find I had won this the day after. With three giants nonetheless.

That's awesome! Have an extra?

Yes, my copy is the 1st print from 1982:

Thanks Mark!
The advanced players handbook has the same cover as the 1982 version but there is an aditionnal logo on right bottom. So, I need to find one without this logo :)

Sorry, no extra.
Yes, I got them from tadashie (I was very surprised by the final price... no other bids on them).

I was busy that week too so completely missed the auctions.

It feels good to know that a set within our community though :)  Also, that it didn't get pieced out going to multiple winners.

Finally, I'm very lucky :) Especially because I  bidded (only $10) just to remember that I have to bid, and then I totally forgot about them. I remembered one day after and saw that I won them :D


And very happy to have won Tales of terror from red_bus too :) for a very good price

Ooooh, I'd missed that one, somehow.  Nice one, Géraud!

Dang! I had the Black Magic kit, but sold it years ago. Maybe I should have held onto it.
