I received this RPG this morning, written in 1989 by Simon Williams. It seems to have been published in UK (cover price is in £). But no more information in it. No publisher, nothing.
The rulebook is separated in 2 parts, one Players, one GMs part. And in the GMs part, it is stated several times "see the Player's Manual". So I am wondering if there was a previous version, published in 2 separate books?

Did anyone else see a copy before? Anyone has more information? I tried to find more about it but didn't find nothing.

Thanks!

Did you buy the Troll & Toad copy?

I am pretty sure that Lawrenson also has a copy but there is no publisher listed.  Its on my list but I haven't pick one up yet.

I thought they had multiple copies. ;)

Thanks; that wouldn't be the only relisted item that picked up a slight look of disbelief, if so. (Two Towers comes to mind, as well...).

Listing glitches?

Yes, it was in my watching list for a while (because overpriced IMHO), but I finally decided to buy it on the website (so the listed copy isn't still available).

I hesitated a long time because I wasn't able to find any information. I found the old thread from Lawrenson but no more clue on it in this thread  :(

I know Brett and I were briefly talking about it - I think he brought it to my attention which means he might have picked up a copy while I was sleeping.  I did a brief search for the author but didn't come up with anything.

The author announces several Stonequest games to play with these rules, so I guess he planned at least to release some other modules. But I found definitely nothing about that.
Perhaps in some UK magazines/fanzines?
