Yes, there actually is one, and is mentioned in my "Foreword" to the G4-9 Super Giants supermodule.

Written from 1993 to 1995, it was originally going to be the beginning of the series (and is designated the G4!). But, because of its nature (good giants, vs. evil party) I decided to shelve it. When I got back into the swing of things in 2007-8, I wanted the series to be played by "good" guys. So I basically ignored the original, and began, instead, with the Stone giants.

This is 60 onesided-pages, typed on an old manual machine. Has a cover (with my art) an interior cover, 47 pages of text and pre-rolled party tables, 3 pages of new monsters, and 7 pages of maps--blank back page.

I don't know what to do with it. It'll never see publication as far as I can forsee. Thus, I'm open to suggestions.

To make available in pdf format? :) I would be interested, and I guess a lot of people too.

Run a limited set of signed copies and sell them on the Acaeum.

Yup.
This...
And being limited, have them numbered.
1 of XX

And I wish to have my name placed on the list for 2 signed copies please?

In what form? Should I scan the entire thing into a PC file or re-enter all the information through my word processer? If the latter, it will not have the same/original type-look-feel.

Maybe run off ten photocopies, bind them and include a signed/numbered cover sheet. Sell them as singles only to ten individuals in the community, at whatever price the market will bear (£20/$30) and then auction the original with a letter of authenticity on eBay.

That's not a bad idea. Thanks.

Good photos of what to expect; try to get the 'feel' as you put it into the photos. Post some piccies and you'll stir up the interest. I'll put my name down for a copy to start you off, if you go down that route.

Me too, as I said previously :) (but of course, it depends the price...)

Thanks,

Only 10?  How about 50?  Or, how about a limited time offer?

But, the price range quoted above would insure a run of only 10 copies, if that.

I was thinking a (very) limited print/copy run of 9...


as in The Fellowship of the Ring.

And then an open bid on the original.

Copy-printing 60 pages then shipping to who-knows-where will not be cheap. But I will  keep the copies within reason and grasp.

Binding - Think this through. I find plastic comb binding a bit tacky.

Count me in for a copy!  I'm interested in the project and would be glad to participate :)


I draw the line at collecting... D&D Towels.

Did we need: Jade Magi Sewer Crawl

Shoulda been: ".. from Pangreenia to Floratopolis, from mystical Treeonia of spectral Forests to Schruborial dimensions."  - The Forests of Leng

Does this appeal to everyone as a cover sheet for the photocopies (?):

The page borders look like more Cthulian than D&Dian style...

The font is a good choice.

I like where this is going.
Agree that Spiral bound is not my first choice.
Would rather it was similar to the Character Archaic with 2 (or 3) holes on left (or top) with the Brass pins.
With 60 pages, I think some form of holding them together is needed.
Using the Pins it would be Much easier to take apart and photocoy the maps for playing.

Heavy Card Stock for front and back covers would be even better.

Nine copies.   :?  

Looks like I just got bumped.  Too bad.

I do think the cover looks good.
