I'm actually surprised the 1st viewer didn't beat me to it. And I certainly can't say I won due to a speedy computer.  :wink:


That would be great! We've still got a fair few items and print versions to get up on the Wiki. PM me if you want to register as an editor. Cheers, Jeremy

Too many goddamned hobbits - the furry-footed scourge of Middle Earth :D  :D  :D


You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

Free trip to GenCon would be nice for me (from Germany!) but there's no such ticket.

4. One card gets you automatic admission to all our Gencon demo games for life.
5. One card gets you a secret prize...
6-1000. 995 cards get you a signed copy of the coolest dungeon ever made. Cards 1-5 get those too!
.....from this ENworld thread

Apparently #1 has been claimed.

And I didn't even know about this. So maybe i need to open my RARs and check for the Golden Tickets. Secret prize.....   free pdfs... Wow.

PS: I came across another thing while researching this. Necromancer Games offers Product updates here. These web enhancements are password protected, you can find the passwords on the first page of the product. (The password for RAR is even included in the free preview pdf on drivethrurpg.com.)

Unless you fancy selling them? I'm looking for a copy in a mint condition box.
None of the golden tickets can be used anymore. NG no longer exist.

I believe they ceased trading in 2006ish?
Someone here probably knows the ins and outs.

my 2 cents....They're still out there....atleast someone is still updating their website (not often but it still gets updated) and getting the $$$ from their PDF products.

Slumbering Tsar has had some recent talk, so it's likely the 1st Pathfinder release for Necromancer Games.  There has been less chatter on the boards from the owners since all this 4e license change and Pathfinder RPG news.

I have hope that once they can get into Paizo's publishing lineup, meaning just like White Wolf they had to be allotted the resources in WW schedule to get product printed, they'll be back to somewhat similar times.  I'm not to sure if Bill or Clark will be writing stuff, unlike years past, but mostly the same group of freelance writers, etc are still posting to the boards.

I guess that they were unnerved by the condition of the book in the picture. I took a chance that the photo did not represent the entire lot. Nearly all turned out to be better.

That or they didn't find anything they didn't already have, and weren't into reselling.

I won a nice run of Space Gamers via $5 BINs for each issue:  
** expired eBay auction **


Issues 15, 16, 18, 19, 21, 23, 25, 26, 27, 30, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 40, 41, 42, 43, 45, 47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56

I've heard excellent things about SG, but haven't really followed it in earnest.  Based on some digging prior to hitting the BINs, the mags look like good prices (and they're all in great shape, with about half still having their mailing covers attached), but are they also like Dungeoneer:  really really hard to get the earliest issues?

Yes, the early issues are hard to find and can be costly.  I think 1-14 are all digest sized issues.  The earlier ones being much harder to find than later ones.

Warhammer Fantasy Role Play 1st edition hardcover (finally have one in really good shape)

Marienburg: Sold Down the River for WHFRP 1st edition

and a title that does not belong here, but I'll say it anyway....

Metamorphosis Alpha 1st edition, 2nd print

That post is not a definitive answer on NG, either.  That announcement the poster is citing is the "latest update" on their website - but it is from March.

I received the Tunnels & Trolls character cards in enveloppe today. And impossible to remember the login of the acaeum member who kindly offered to send these to me :(
My sent message disappeared. I searched through the posts and can't find where we spoke about these cards... The name of this person is Gregory Koumi (if someone know him...)

Thank you very much to him for sending these cards!  :)

EDIT: after looking more carefully, I remember that it was Ak'Ptui :) so thanks!

I found the Penguin versions of two Fighting Fantasy books: Titan: The Fighting Fantasy World and Fighting Fantasy Monsters: Out of the Pit.  They are in worn but serviceable condition.

I bought the Creations Unlimited version of Garden of the Plantmasters.  It has some water damage to the covers, but I've never owned this version before now. [Edit: Was there another version after this one?]

Also found a Rules Cyclopedia in good shape.

I think that was the only edition of Garden of the Plantamster. REmember discussing this with RJK in 2005. Think this is one that should be reworked/reprinted. A PPP re-release would be most welcome.
