And you have the Légendes fighting wheel by Philippe Mercier :)
He created this wheel to help during combat without knowing that TSR did the same for AD&D.

I was able to source these Board Enterprise & Legendquest books from about three different places in just a few weeks and enjoyed putting this assortment togther :)

The rules aren't super interesting, and the scenerios are kinda dull, but I love the old-school artwork on the covers... and the construction-paper-colours are excellent!

I draw the line at collecting... D&D Towels.

Did we need: Jade Magi Sewer Crawl

Shoulda been: ".. from Pangreenia to Floratopolis, from mystical Treeonia of spectral Forests to Schruborial dimensions."  - The Forests of Leng

I am still surprised that these don't sell for more.  They do have an old school feel.  I should point out there are different prints for those print run completists :)  I see you picked up a few from the Sentry Box.

Yes, I have put out it for sale on eBay.fr (a pity they don't use the 'make an offer' option, I always fear asking for too little... or too much  :roll: ).

Thank you for the referral Mark!  

Yes the Sentry Box supplied many of them, about $6 each for the supplements... they must be about out of them now, so maybe the prices will creep up?  There was (is?) a lot on ebay recently for considerably more.

The price are very low, and as Mark, I don't understand why. These are definitely old school in their designs. I really enjoy them too. Very nice display David.
I saw that TFM have a LegendQuest binder for sale. It is the first copy I see of it.

No more than 12-15€ I guess. The last ones sold for less. 2 prints exist. The differences are the system to fix the wheel, the back of the wheel, and the explanation sheet (glossy or not).

Flying Buffalo certainly seemed to put out a lot of UK only printings around the time, more so than other companies. The UK RPG scene in the 80's was a very different place from the US scene, and had a whole different feel to it.

I just knocked back a T&T collection at a local 'con this weekend, 'cos I don't know anything about it, but there was an orange box (3rd?) and a stack of mono solo adventures. I thnk the guy ended up going home with it for the lack of interest. That looks like a really interesting piece, though, and it's finding the obscure stuff that makes collecting fun as I see it.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

yes certainly UK only. As Ian said, there is a lot of UK specific prints for T&T. The weird thing is that I had never see this before and I cannot find any informations through the internet.
Perhaps David (faro)?

Are these worthwhile?  I have passed them by a few times now mainly because I think they are mainly miniature based magazines.  Any RPG content?

NO QUARTER is a lot like WHITE DWARF in their focus on miniatures wargaming and hawking of their own miniatures line.

Privateer Press is also the publisher of the Iron Kingdoms D&D 3.5 campaign setting...the Witchfire trilogy, Five Fingers Port of Deceit and related items.

The earlier issues include D&D related articles.  Issue #3, for instance, has the cover art from the Witchfire hardback on its cover.

Iissue #22 is purely miniatures oriented

I was happy to get the entire early run of the magazine (2005-January 2009)  for a reachable price...which included a 10% discount.

Just got in a DCC#30 tournament edition boxed set and the thing is amazing.

Same adventure as the plain book though there is a very slight difference between the two books (one is a different shade of light blue and the 9000 portion of the isbn number is a different size).

Nice to get the 30.5 adventure though it would have been nicer with its own cover like the DCC#35 modules had.

The miniatures are amazing. That Dragon/Ettin thing is huge. This has to be one of the snazziest boxed sets I've ever seen.

I love it when Half Price Books remembers its name when pricing RPG stuff!  There's an ICE item like those above at my local HPB for $30.  Been sitting there for months.  $6.95 sounds mighty nice!

My local HPB stores would have put $50 each on all of those, and kept those prices for a year, then lowered them by $5.  The local stores have completely forgotten what their name stands for....
