 I snagged them one or two per day from the WizKids booth at Gen Con, back in 2001. They were being given away free...a box of them having been found in the FASA warehouse as that company was going away.



  Suppose they might be worth anything?



  What about a signed Hackmaster poster or two from the same GenCon?




I always like the cover of the original Shadowrun book. If you find a value and decide to part with the posters let me know what you are aksing and I might take one off your hands.

Need to know what printings they are. In general, I don't see anything that stands out. About the only T&T stuff that sells for any kind of price (more than $10 individually) are the really early prints or "rare" items (again, low print run stuff from the very early days).



But for the price, you got a great deal. In fact, it is awesome. I don't see very many lots of T&T and I watch for them regularly.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

Wow...I had no idea that there were even that many T&T publications in existence.  You might own them all, Alan.   :)

actually, no, there are quite a few more. they are pretty cool items and its an easy enough game ot play with the kids so thats great for us.



the stuff is a nice mix of prints. some first some later - not actually that bothered on rarity or value as such, as i will only offload if i have dupes etc.....just well pleased with what i got for what i paid. whichever way you look at it, it was a bargain and not that often you can get that many books in any one time.

There are about 26 or so I believe, there has also been a new one released recently as well, written by a guy in england and printed by an Australian company from memory. The pocket adventures seem to be the hardest to get.. a good pick up...

There are at least 3 supps, maybe 4. I have 2 & 3, they are basically just a beholder sized zine just with some adventures printed in previous normal issues....

Anyone remember the correct name of the boardgame that first introduced the World of Glorantha?



I think it was White Bear, Red Moon, or something like that.  I know I owned a copy at some point.

Google is your friend.



White Bear & Red Moon. :)



Glorantha



I love the world Glorantha but found the RQ system was rather deadly (I think I lost numerous limbs playing "Apple Lane").

My grandmother who died this year played at least one RQ session with my brother & I when we were kids when she was about 89! :D


Mount Celestia doesn't want me and Baator's afraid I'll take over.

*chuckles* Ain't that the usual?



Well, I managed to find one of the supplements lying around.

Should be at least one more here- not purchased "first hand"(!)- but most of my other higher-number TBHs are in that "other box", still not rediscovered since the last house move. :?

Not 110% certain on the others (I think Brette is correct), but the first 32 page "Glossary of Magic" supplement wasn't just recycled material, containing "all the magical items from "THE BEHOLDER" Issues 1 to 10 plus lots of new ideas".



I suspect they didn't sell too many (relative to the later TBH circulation figures) since I never read of any of those being reprinted.

sorry; only one copy, Brette. :(



(I couldn't really afford to buy two at 50 pence each, back in early 1980...).

The only Beholder supplement I have is also Glossary of Magic.  So the other 2 or 3 were adventure compendiums?  Any new adventures not previously published?  I have a set of Beholders from 1 to 27.  Does anyone have an issue past 27?

Aha! That's more like it... :D

No; none beyond that sort of number that I recall, I'm afraid. (And you're into A4 format with those, no? *tries to remember*).



Certainly two other adventure compendiums. If there's a third, I've not seen that.
