I will be very interested to know what the adventures worth when you have read them. Are they good or totally crap?

:lol:  Good point.  I have quite a few T&T adventures and I can't recall if I've ever read a single one.  Maybe its time to think about getting rid of them.  :wink:

Since I've always read that T&T stuff is crap, I've pretty much ignored it.  I'm pretty sure the only thing I have is Isle Of Darksmoke, only because Larry DiTillio's other work (for CoC, Pendragon, etc.) is so good.  Don't think I actually ever read it though.

Isle of Darksmoke is an excellent scenario. A lot of T&T modules are pretty good, like Dark Temple. Buffalo Castle and first modules are not good at all, but GM adventures are most of time excellent.

Grabbed this last week.  Nice leatherbound book from 1979.  How rare is this?

As rare as a homemade product done with an original copy of Dimensions & Doors :)

I assume that it was rebound, and was perhaps even an ex-library book?

Now that I have it in hand, it looks like you are both right  (though nothing supports it being a library book.  There is a pencil "2.00" on the copyright page which I take to be a price back in the day.

Stratochamp sent me a PM saying that he was unaware of any Bob Liddell books that were leather bound.

Not that badly done.  I like it!

You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

Someone scored a copy of Quixotics Dungeon Encounters from NKG.
Lots of rather pricey rare non-TSR D&D goodies over there at the moment, but it'd be good to know where this particular tome went to.


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

Always wondered what the interior was like.

Well, these were fun finds for someone!  Remember when these sold for, um, a LOT more?
