Could someone please show a couple pages of the rules.  I'd love to see how 'realism' is interpreted.  Realism can bog down gameplay so I find it interesting how the author keeps that from happening.

Thanks in advance

Well, if anyone can tell me how to upload a 2.85MB file to this site, I have a pdf copy of Nimolee 1st ed. Apparently 2MB is the size limit. Coincidentally, my old college buddies are getting together tonight to break out the index cards, pencils and dice and play in one of the Nimolee type worlds that has been around since the late 1970's. I even wore the matching T-shirt today...

With all credits to DBD Conn for this, here are the original Nimolee rules after a little server gymnastics.
It would be an interesting exercise for those in possession of the orange cover version to see if these are verbatim or a previous incarnation of those pages.

Big thank you to the scanner, hosting and posting this! Looks like the orange cover 1982 (3rd? edition) of Nimolee has a significantly greater page count of 188?

I was curious as to the comparison between the text blocks. Did the author re-type his rules and chapters in further editions, or did he just add new materials as he went on new sheets? Typing up those tables is a real chore without word processing. I am that old. So I’d imagine he’d only want to re-type what he absolutely had to.

Do any of the more prolific collectors here have a copy of the Nimolee rules that is a distinctly different printing from the orange covered version with the taped binding? Is the author Paul Keyser known to the community?

If you are looking for some of the history of the development of Nimolee, Paul was a contributor to some of the APAs during its development.
