Tried to track one down a while back - found the author but no response to my communications.  Have never seen a copy.  Probably need to ask Stratochamp if he has one.

Mars says no.  Strat says no.

That's close enough to non-existence for me to no longer care.  :)

Who is the author? Is there any link to the Shadis scenario "code of the rats" by Dave Dollar?

Something of interest there as well

Hmm, looks like it.  Could be a reprint/expanded version.

I had seen that link.  Presumably someone using one version of the adventure in their campaign.

So I couldn't stop myself from picking up a couple mags cheap to investigate this further.  Sorry for the pink hue on the pics - no idea why that happened.


White Wolf 28 (Aug/Sep 1991) has a tough review:

And then a few pages later, an ad:

Shadis 21 (Oct 1995) has the adventure:

Image

which I believe is just a recycling with almost no editing/revision (says pregens are included, but aren't)  of the previous self published adventure.  Based on page count from the review, I think this is "complete".  And it's definitely the same thing.  Remember this illustration?

Image


Anyway, I should have probably saved the few bucks, but at least I can definitely file this under not interested - from my quick scan, this looks about as crummy as the review indicated.

The only interesting piece would be the story of how a self-published item ended up in a magazine four years later.  That's curious.

Very interesting, yes. I will be interested by the story behind this. Do you try to contact the author?

I would have no idea where to start.  It's pretty unlikely that the PO Box is still in use by the same person 20 years later.

I did send him a letter a year or two ago after finding a real address but didn't get a response.

On facebook, there is a Dave Dollar who is related to RPGs. But I don't have any fb account... If anyone else have one, he can try to contact him by this way, at least to see if he is the author.
