Could you post a cover scan if you find it? I found no track of a second print of this game. I know that it exists another RPG with a slightly similar name but not from the same authors.

I will see if I can find it and it might be different authors.  I remember it is also called Infinity and has the infinity symbol on the cover as well.

It will be interesting to know if there is another publisher or something like that.

I haven't found Infinity yet but I did find the other RPG by the same company.  The company is called Infinity Games but they don't seem to have any company info in the book.  The RPG that I found is called Journeyman by Frederick Goff with interior art by Mark Reeves, Alene Reeves, Jonathon Goff and Phillip Neil, 1989.

It seems to exist 2 different publishers: Infinity Company and Infinity Games. They don't seem to be related each others.
I think the symbol of infinity and the name is something interesting for a name :) like New infinities (Cyborg Commando by G.Gygax) which used the same logo too.
I would be astonished that Infinity company stopped activites during 10 years then changed the name in Infinity Games and released another product.

After much lifting of heavy boxes, I found the one I was thinking of on my shelves.  Although as usual, I found some other RPGs that I forgot I had.

Infinite Domains by Steve Hemmesch.  It was published by Infinite Concepts, 1996 and doesn't seem related to the other two.

It seems a little bit high for this. Moreover if it is not collectible...

If you collect small press RPGs, it probably falls in that category but is relatively new (being produced in 1996) and probably not very well known.  I don't think there are too many people directly searching for this one but it falls into items I collect.

I'm sure I paid under $10 for it and think it actually came in a lot with some other items - maybe the same time I bought Darkurthe Legends.

I have seen this one with blue letter instead of red as well.  I'm partial to Ragnarok Enterprises so nice pickup!  Is your copy bound properly?

No, not properly. The pages are larger than the cover. Is it the same for you?
The blue letters would be from the 1986 edition (since red letters is the 1993 one).

I will have to dig it out to look at the pages but is probably true.  Most of the Ragnarok Enterprises items are put together like that.

The blue lettered one I am think of had the same cover as the red lettering.  The cover of 1986 version is completely blue with black ink (which is similar to their other products of that time).  Here's what 1986 looked like:

I think that this picture is the cover of the box and not the rulebook. Do you remember the size of the book with blue letters? Perhaps it is only the rulebook in the early 1986 boxed set which seems to contain the Complete Gamer's Pantheon (which was sold if I remember by an Acaeum member few months ago on ebay). But informations on this website are most of time incorrect or incomplete for old games.

(and thanks Mark for the link to the infinite domains book for the price I wanted to pay for ;))

Found a copy of Tobin's Spirit Guide for a nice price (ie: less than I'd pay for shipping) in a second-hand bin.

As a bonus, they'd stuck a copy of a first ed. Ghostbusters! supplement that I was missing in along with it. :D

I finally managed to win some 9th Level Game stuff, like Ninja Burger. Yay.
