Interesting little item for the provenance, if nothing else.

Anyone know anything about the module and/or the author?

Ken St. Andre is the big guy in T&T; the Head Honcho, the Big Kahuna. I've never seen the mod, but it is likely, if it isn't a fake, that he whipped it up but never produced it. If that is the case, that isn't rare, it's unique.
I believe Ken has a site where you could ask him about it personally. I am not a smart man; one of the other fine individuals here would probably remember the URL for it.

Well, Ken didn't produce it; it was given to Ken by the author.  I can drop him a line about it over on Trollworld; I was just wondering if anyone here knew anything about the author.

Heck, could've asked him in person last weekend, but I didn't see the auction until after the con. ;)

Seen it before but can't remember the context for certain - one of those items passed on via James Shipman, I /think/.

Ugh.  Anyone know what username he's currently sliming around under on EBay?

I can't recall whether James switched to another eBay ID after the 1e T&T fiasco but the Moria adventure was some time before, when he was selling things on the cheap after other people left him out of pocket.
Still not *100%* sure that was the original sale context, mind you: it is possible I might be mixing up auctions/private sales.

Darn, Brette: seven minutes this time.
I'll go find something else to do with the short time I have available this evening. :)

lol.. Sure it was ebayed.. he did quite a few "rare" items from his personal collection.. the 1st print was almost the last of the auctions that drew in the big$$.. TFM certainly stoppped buying then thats for sure.. but he did pick up several interesting items in previous auctions.. Infinate Adventure etc..

This one was an items sent to Ken St. Andre and sat in his collection I seem to remeber from the origional auction.. Kynan will tell you if you ask I'm sure.. might be noted over on ToT as well..
