I was just organizing some of my stuff when I came across these, I thought it may be interesting enough to take a picture and share!

Image[list=]

It is my collection of Frank's and Tim's recent convention modules, they are very cool, I actually won the "Onto the Devil's Skillet" in a draw and North Texas (Thanks Doug  :D )

I imagine they will be published by Eldritch eventually (I hope anyway)

I somehow managed to obtain 2 copies (Of 6 total  8O ) of "The Sinister Secret of Sweetmeade Alley" and I am missing "Temple of the Weaver Queen" (I think) so if anybody wants to trade  :wink: [/list]


Games can get you through times of no money but money can not get you through times of no games!!

I'm missing "The Sinister Secret of Sweetmeade Alley" but I only have the one copy of the "Temple of the Weaver Queen."  That would have been a great trade.

IIRC there are only a scant handful of the 8-1/2" x 11" Player/DM copies for any of those adventures.

Most of them also have Digest prints that Doug sold during and after the convention.
That said, I have extra copies of those....  :lol:

Are you kidding?  Both you and Jeff want one, price just quadrupled.  I'll take bids now for my copy, both Stratochamp and Blackmoor bidding against each other, I'm going to make a downpayment on a jet ski..... :wink:

Sometimes (from the outside looking in anyway) it looks to be helpful being the guy hosting the Convention...  :lol:

There is truth to that....

In some cases where I have the DM copy, it was given to me, in one I had to pay for it. In cases where I have 2 copies of something, I bought one at auction so Tim got the cash, the other was given.

But after looking, I don't see the Sinister Secret so now I have to buy one of those !

yes you are correct Doug, we are both looking for an 8.5x11 version of Weaver Queen (of which you have two). assuming that you want to hang on to at least one of them, you've got first crack Jeff. just let me know if you don't manage to make a trade.

on an almost completely unrelated note, my copies of boskidell, devil's skillet,  frozen north & sweetmeade abbey are all copy #2 of 6, and castle of glass is #2 of 10. we did a random draw at gencon 2011  to determine who got what copy of Castle of Glass and i whined ahead of time about hoping to get #2 because most of my other copies were #2. well we drew and i got #9, but Mike (mdr003) swapped his #2 for my #9, and refused all my attempts to compensate him for the drop down in numbers. it was a plaesure meeting Mike when he stopped by my house prior to Gencon and then we got to game with Tim and he did that huge favor for me. Thanks Mike! and please drop by again when you're up here from down under.

Well, as to the Castle of Glass, I am only basing the "number" on the fact there is a 34 in the tree branches on the cover page....

Other than that, I have no # of a # on mine

I think it's high time Stratochamp got to the NTRPG con, and that we place a Temple of the Weaver Queen in the con auction for he, Blackmoor and Bracton to fight over. Someone's gotta pay Frank and Tim's liquor bills......:lol:

Hi Bill -

I was glad to do it - number 2 or 9, it's all the same in my book so I was happy I could help you out.

I'm looking forward to paying you another visit next time I'm in Chicago. We're planning on coming over again this year, probably around September or so. And if things fall into place, we'll be staying indefinately. I'm filling out my green card application this weekend....

Regards
Mike
