Grenadier Cloudland:


** expired/removed eBay auction **


Price is a bit high, especially for the condition and the seller seems a bit dodgy looking at his feedback, but might be worth to fill a hole.

Gryphon Magazines #1 & 2:

1/2 to 3/8 | eBay

Both look to be in very nice condition.

Didn't the same publication just fail to get even a single bid at an opening price of $19.95 and a Buy-it-Now of $29.95?

Maybe, I might have missed it. If you dont find it interesting, then don't bid on it. :?

I don't know when Cloudland became a $20-$30 module.  I thought $30 for the shrink wrapped one was high but there are those people that go crazy for shrink  :roll: .  I think its a lot like the Fantasy Master stuff they always seem to be around and sell fairly cheaply.

I think it might even be the same copy.

That Cloudland has one craptastic listing format. There's like 4-5 pages of "mess" and one little line actually describing the item, just giving it some numbers without any explanation.

Actually, no, the NIPI Fantasy Master stuff is heads-and-shoulders above Cloudland in quality:  that module is awful.  I was quite disappointed when I finally tracked a copy down.

I thought about buying it because I had a vague idea that it was rare (collector's disease), but $20 plus postage is a large purchase for me.

I thought about running Cloudland for my PCs years ago for just pure evil sadistic abuse...just as written.  Terrible adventure, though I think I liked the maps if I remember correctly...

No longer, but on the plus side it's issue #3, not #2 (the latter somewhat easier to obtain).

Re. the seller's comment on the 'zines: yes, somewhat agreed at the time as to the relative merits of Gryphon and Dragon. Alas, despite showing good potential the Gryph did not last. :(

I read the seller's comments about Gryphon.

One of the things that always mystified me was game magazine publishers who were planning to get into Dragon's market by covering games other than D&D.

Dragon, of course, was prospering because it covered mostly D&D.  In fact, when Dragon tried to diversify to cover TSR's other, lame games, the magazine suffered.

Jumping into a market created almost entirely by one game....and then arrogantly announcing that your magazine will not be extensively covering that game....hmmm.  Where do people get these kinds of marketing ideas?

(I remember a Dragon reader poll in the 80's that asked what other games we buyers wanted Dragon to cover.  I answered, "AD&D, AD&D and AD&D."  Apparently, lots of others did the same because the next month the editor responded something like, "OK, so now we know you want less of other games and more of D&D."    Interestingly, that was the same issue in which whoever was responding told us that TSR was planning to go ahead with 2nd edition AD&D even though we readers had told him it was a bad idea...because TSR knew better than us.)

gamma world miniatures.


** expired/removed eBay auction **


what is interesting about this auction, is that the owner is trying to gauge the interest level for selling off original cover art for the miniatures box  set (if anyone is interested).
