** expired eBay auction **




This would be interesting if someone is still looking for the regular version of the pagan fiction.

I don't know that I knew about DT having a limited edition!  Are the details on the Pagan site?

Per Pagan's site, there's a limited edition of Dark Theatres, but it didn't list a limited version for Rules of Engagement.  Hmmm.  Ralph, can you please confirm the limited version for that one?

Rules of Engagement is mentioned on the Pagan site as well : http://www.tccorp.com/site09/tccorp_prod.html?appSession=42767808149984&RecordID=28&PageID=3&PrevPageID=2&cpipage=1&CPIsortType=&CPIorderBy= but the image used is not correct.

This is what it looks like :

Ltd to 250 pcs, all signed and numbered by John Tynes on the last page. Mine is number 11.

And the Dark Theatres image is correct. That's this one :

I received today the Frontier expansion set for Burros & Banditos RPG. It was the 1st time I see one for sale. Very happy :) (and thanks to smarmy to help me in this transaction). And for a very decent price!

Smarmy1 shipped the Tyr version of Bushido booklets that I won from 1ozzygal in the same package :) That's finally complete my Bushido collection.

You'll have to humour me on this, its not RPG as such, but does take place in a 'dungeon'!  :)

I received Dungeon Bowl this morning, the BloodBowl expansion for just £5, which was the shipping price! Chuffed to mint balls...  :D  :D

Ok, now you can resume normal service...  :oops:

Can't argue with that price.. I picked up one of thiese years ago I remember.. is it really a rpg or a boardgame?? I remember I couldn't decide..and probably lent towards a boardgame..

Yes, it is borderline between both. The author calls it "Roleplaying game". But a GM is not needed (even if it is better to have one).
It is similar to several Task Force Games rpg, like Musketeer, Heroes of Olympus, etc. or others like Masters of the Universe, etc.
You play a character, there is a scenario, characters can evolve, the roleplaying could be interesting but not compulsory.

I would say a RPBG, a Roleplaying-boardgame? :)

Very nice price. This is a not easy to find boardgame. I bought one several years back but never played since miniatures are still on prue. Do you plan to play with? I will be interested to know how it runs.

Similarly, does anyone play to Kerrunch?

I do plan to. I'm still playing 1st ed on this too (I don't move on much...) so the only difference is I will stick with using the cardboard players rather than the plastic.

Never have been a fan of those really...  

I'm looking for a copy of Kerrunch, but purely on a completion view, so no rush in finding one myself. I've managed to get the 3rd ed board recently, so being bigger, it adds a new dimension to the original passing game!

Why do not use plastic miniatures?
The main problem with plastic miniatures is to put the player numbers on their back :/

That is part of it, but also once they are prone, I found it cluttered the board. Also, I think I probably would have gone for them more, had they been posed i.e throwers, catchers, blockers etc.. more like the metal teams that you can still buy.

Just a personal aversion to plastic figures in this game I guess, not to say they were a bad thing!  8)

Have you read the Robert Chambers anthology? It is an absolutely amazing bit of pre-Lovecraft fiction. Chambers was a prolific writer but he wrote popular crap of the most part. The King in Yellow is a major derivation from his usual work and it shows an untapped talent that was never really developed. If he had written half as much as his total output in the King in Yellow style I think we would see just about as many fans of Chambers as we do of Lovecraft.

$$$$$  Ahhh... no boxes but still... $$$$$


The Dragons expansion set at Gencon sold for about $100.00

Very nice.
