was doing a google search and a link to some comments here popped up.  Pyramid of Light was a module i wrote at the request of Dave Arneson as one of the tournament rounds for a gaming convention in the 1980s (i forget which one).  when it was run, it was done as a D&D module, but when we tried to publish it in our magazine - Adventure Gaming - TSR objected saying certain material was copyrighted.  so i redid it, with some help, making it generic.
it was published as an insert to one of the issues of Adventure Gaming. the editor was Tim Kask (former editor of TSR's The Dragon), i was asst ed and marketing director, and it was published out of cincinnati, oh.
as an interesting side note, the magazine shared the same building as Ral Partha.
boy, did this ever bring back memories lol.

Too rich for me.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . gummy bears.

Still not sure who got them.  But at least we got to see what 1st prints of these items look like.  I am still looking for the Overland Encounter Levels 4-8 to complete a set of Fantasy Factory items.

Monsters Monsters with a cover price of $5.95.
Is this a First Print of Monsters Monsters?
I know there is another Print of Monsters Monsters with a cover price of $7.95 (or 7 something).

Including me there were only 3 bidders. :?

The first print has a $7 cover price: $5.95 copies are later.
To be honest that one looks a bit rough vs. $50-ish for a fine 1st print (undervalued at that IMHO).

I found 7 copies of Avalon Hill's Rail Baron for $0.99 each at Goodwill tonight.

They have packing tape on the box, and numbers written on box covers, so they must have come from a club or something.

So far, only 2 are complete, but I'm pretty sure I'll be able to piece together 4 complete copies, albeit player copies due to the state of the boxes.  Still, I think I'll recoup my investment on this one.  :D

Went to some of the usual places and decided to get a few things:

Dangerous Journeys slip sleeve case

Warhammer FRP 1st Edition hardcover

Lichemaster for WHFRP 1st edition (1st print)

Corrupting Influence: The Best of Warpstone Volume I for WHFRP 1st edition

and a few other odds and ends that don't really matter.


Those who can, don't. Those who should not, do.

Another member here sold me the DCC 30 on the left side of the group of the blue boxes.
It is SWed and in Mint condition and I got it at a very good price.

I recently obtained those other boxes from another source.  8)
