I think he means this one:  
Tome of Treasures :: View topic - Dragonlord (1977)


Hi Mark,

I couldn't find an image (should have gone to Tome instead of Google  :roll: ), but I knew he wasn't talking about the ones I listed. I was just messing around.

Thanks - Paul

No worries.  I know Frank is always tracking the Wee Warriors DragonLord.

I keep forgetting that FGU put out a DragonLords too.

This is probably a photocopied Victorious German Arms, so don't anyone hop on the BIN too quickly:

Victorious German Arms by Gary Gygax and Terry Stafford 1973 0937912026 | eBay

I've already written to the seller to warn him/her, after my experience with this on Amazon....

After some back and forth, the seller decided to pull the listing. What was most interesting to me was that the photocopy he had seemed identical to the copy I bought from Amazon a couple of years ago:  someone out there has been selling copies for awhile now.....

I remember a little while back the fakes of Victorious German Arms and fake Warriors of Mars were all over the place - someone on Abebooks had 10+ copies of each, they were on Amazon, etc.

I'm just messing around, I knew he meant the plural.
I don't know why I have a soft spot for DragonLord. I think it might be Wee Warriors in general. Misty, Dwarven, Vamp, they are all cheesy classics.

A good BIN for Burnt Offerings:

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

Did we need: Jade Magi Sewer Crawl

dumb question here but how do you discern fakes from originals? i've wondered if some of the items I've purchased were fakes.

Why can't I ever find this kind of stuff? Aaaargh! I want a tablecloth and beach towels! Double Aaargh! I did however pick up 4 different D&D candy boxes the other day on the Bay. Quite pleased to add them to my meager collection

In this case, you can tell because of the brand new staples, cheap paper (you can see the text of the interior pages through the cover - an original would have used a cardstock) and general wear/discolouration.

In other cases, fakes are often simply black ink on white or coloured cardstock where originals have colour covers.

In other cases, you can see remnants of the scanning & reprinting process - sometimes a faint black line at the bottom or black specs printed on the cover - that represent the edge of the page or a stain or mark.  Or some black dots printed near the spine where the staples should be, etc.

In a more detailed examination, there are usually differences in paper quality and if you look at the ink patterns under magnification, there are clear differences between old printed copies and new laser printed or photocopies.

I have bought about a dozen items that I thought were originals but am now convinced they are fakes.

I posted some A/B pics of VGA if you're interested in seeing on those @ Re: photocopied Victorious German Arms and copies/fakes rese and we had some other threads about fakes in general, too.  Other fakes that Mark and I emailed in the past few years about included a number of Hess Games items, too.

i know this is a old post but i've bought lots from amanda. for those of you who don't know it's an interesting story concerning the items she has

her uncle bought anything and everything to do with gaming, subscribed to newsletters, fanzines, everything

after he passed away the family started going through his house, in the attic were boxes and boxes and boxes of gaming items. before amanda realized what they had some other family members had thrown away several boxes!!!

anyways, she's easy to deal with and recently told me she still has tons and tons of stuff to sell...he also bought comics and books and kept all of them

she said she was just burnt out when it came to ebay. i told her i would gladly consign her items for the paltry pittance of hand-picking what I wanted! lol.
