He is a fast shipper and a good seller.

White Dwarf 1 (seller has others) - What is the easy way of knowing if this is  a reprint or not?


You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

Yes I think too since I bought the same lot from him too. But as you said, it is still a good price for this lot.

If it had been a bit lower I'd have taken it, if the Moria was a 2nd print, but I couldn't see it pictured. And I can't be sure the map is included.

(No luck this time, sorry Marl. The Iron Wind is a newer copy and the ALs, at least, are not 1sts: the otherwise high-rated seller you got your copy from fell into the same trap, but I don't think they covered their back with "edition" vs. "print").

I think I said second edition Ist print on the Iron Wind. And I guess the AL are not an 1st printing but they are fairly early. I am sure someone still might find them interesting. Here is a reference site if anyone is interested....

Rolemaster 1st Edition Product List

I appreciate your concern for my bad luck pointing things out though

Yep. Misread on that, but not on the ALs or the one you previously picked up as a "1st", though. The early Rolemaster books do need as much care as the likes of Arduin to distinguish the printings.

I picked two up with one 1st I am pretty sure of:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8831127245

and

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8827853687

Not sure what item I picked up labeled as first. I have bought a number of Arms and Spell Laws recently...do you have specifics? With the site I linked I hope it is not so hard as it breaks it down pretty well. I wish they would all put stock numbers and use differing logos like the early TSR box sets and other products did. Makes it easy to tell the difference between all those printings of Dungeon.

*g*. I said AL, not Iron Wind.  Guess we're doomed to keep misreading here! :D

The first of your two links is indeed a 1st Iron Wind. :)

For AL, the blue (1st) vs. black (later) color of the cover is the best indication, if the auction only shows the front, since it's rare to see a 1st in original bag with red half-cover, etc., which was only produced for that run (I think...). Can't remember for sure, but phps you picked up that non-1st black (listed as 1st) from Intelligator on a BIN?
Gets even more of a pain having to ask questions to ID loose-leaf vs. bound versions (CL) or 1981 vs. 1983 for SL from the optional rules on the last page...
*
The icewebring.com link above certainly helps, but I'm not 100% sure that all the prints and combos are indeed listed there; e.g. they were missing the rare-ish AL/CL box until fairly recently and the set listed doesn't match the other two or three I've seen. :roll:

It was one-eyed-jacques. I have had real good luck with getting some nice items from him. This is the one you mention. I could not find it as it was a BIN and I was looking in the list of snipes.


** expired/removed eBay auction **


I knew that was not the real rare version. I was looking for the one with the charts. An interesting story on that is that after I bought that I go both the Spell Law box sets I bought and they both had the Arms Law stuff in the box as well. I am betting that happens alot or I blew good luck on that and not the lottery  :lol:
