I think it is an earlier printing. I don't have the colored printing, but I see it many times and the cover seems to be stapled with the book. Do you have it?

I don't have any of the Timeline Ltd items.  I was trying to figure out if it is more RPG or miniature rules.  These books seemed more miniature oriented:

Time and Time again is definitively a RPG. Not a miniatures game. I gone through it when I got my first copy of it and it was more designed however for one shot game than for a long campaign. I don't know the other Timeline products though.

This game and the supplement (color cover) are available on their website

Sadly, it took me nearly 4 years to get a copy of Crusader Volume 1, #1, but I did it. Did not pay anything for it, either, so that makes me very happy. I imagine, for small press magazines, that one will be kind of hard to find in the future, and there might be a lot of interest, eventually, seeing as its got articles by Gary Gygax and Rob Kuntz in it.

Finally got my hands on the last Elfquest supplement that I was missing, as well as the Deadlands/Call of Cthulhu crossover module that I've been looking for for a while. :D

Grubbiv had some really good stuff there.  I thought about bidding on those Elfquest items but really couldnt bring myself to with so many really great items up on Ebay over the last couple of weeks.  I just picked up a copy of FGU's Citadel and Gladiators rulebooks though.  I probably wont bid on anything off of Ebay for a few months now since GenCon is right around the corner.  I guess it all depends on just how much money I come back with.

He did indeed.  I didn't win many though; just these and the Avalon Hill Runequest character sheet boxes, and I probably overpaid for those ones. ;)

I bid on a fair number, but I found that the prices on a lot of the items tended to be above what I normally see them go for.  (Or, in some cases, what similar items listed around the same time went for.)  Something to be said for listing large amounts of similar items at the same time, I suppose.

I bought a Heritage Castle Front Sheet (punch-out cardboard) on Free RPG Day.  It was $5 or $10, which is still reasonable for Heritage cardboard.  It's not very functional for gaming, since it's just the front of a castle.  Whatever.

I placed another order with Noble Knight last week to get some more Free RPG Day stuff.  I saw a Heritage Castle Front Sheet, this time listed under Gamescience.  Reasonably priced again --- cool.

I received the order today.  The single Heritage Castle Front Sheet was actually a shrinkwrapped package of twelve unfolded Castle Fronts.  A photocopied product sheet inside the shrinkwrap branded it as Gamescience.

And, yes, Smarmy, I had to open up a corner of the shrink to count how many sheets were inside.  Ah, to fully open the shrinkwrap and assemble them . . .  :)

Ugh, novels. No idea. I thought you meant the modules, of which I know three exist.

Heritage's SwordBearer.  One beat-up box, three rusty booklets, one character sheet, two "Society of the Sword" blurbs.  But cheap!

I had a feeling that there weren't too many in the Cyborg Commando series. Actually, until I saw them today I didn't know they'd produced any novels for the game.

There wasn't too much produced at all.. and the second book seems the easiest to find (from my experience, I only have the 2nd book, but I haven't looked for the rest) From memory its the first book produced in the USA that used the metric system..

Historically, it has been a very bad idea to mention anything I am trying to collect on the Acaeum.

I have 2 different prints of book 3.  New Infinities did produce a fair number of novels.
