I finally got a Crusader #1!:  
** expired eBay auction **
:D

I've been slowing down on the purchases, a) in order to get in gear to start selling stuff (no, really!), and b) to buy one of bombadil's wife's DragonChess sets!

This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

It was the first time I saw these Cards, I guess they are pretty rare. I cannot find any informations on them.


** expired eBay auction **


Perhaps Mark have some information? Sutton Hoo Games released Halmabrae, but I don't know if they producted anything else (but these cards)

The players cards "allow players to hide their actions from others"

The cards seem very hard to find.  The only other item by Sutton Hoo that I remember off had is the adventure for Hahlmabrea.  I think its called "The Trouble with Friends" - it doesn't seem to difficult to find.

When I spot this listing, I tried to find anything about these cards, but was unsuccessfull. I bought them to see what they look like. I will post pictures on ToT soon.

I have Trouble with Friends too, somewhere. My indexing sucks.
I wish my Hahl wasn't shrinked. I would really love to see if it is useable.

There are at least VHTF non-TSR items :)

Oooh. I love that little guy. What a bargain. I always thought it was a shame he didn't have a little round shield.

A couple packages arrived recently with a bunch of small press stuff.  It seems to happen so infrequently that I get this amount of stuff at once so I had to take some pictures:

*g* Was going to make a comment in passing 'bout being thunderstruck those two had slipped through so cheaply.
More than a couple of packages there I'd've thought, although definitions of that word seem to vary nowadays. ;)

Thunderstruck was just a token bid expecting someone to overbid me but then they didn't.  A couple nice Gygax references in them too - #4 contains an interview and #5 contains a letter from Gary about the interview, etc.

In total the lot is from 3 packages - some stuff didn't make it into the pictures.

Thunderstruk was Tim Kalvis wasn't it? Another UK 'zine? We really were prolific in our little digest fanzines in the 80's weren't we?

*nods* Not that far shy of 500 titles on the list. Those two EGG hooks are pretty useful, too.

Three would be fair definition, I guess. :lol:
I'd thought the Canadian Zeppelins were from elsewhere, but hadn't dug back through to check.

If that's the original Earth 2020 baggie, y'know now to be careful if removing for reading. Darned silly cardstock to shoehorn in there... :?

Yep, part of the big lot from there.  Have been looking for St Talis for a while now so happy to have all of their published books now - I think.  There might be a Zeppelin fanzine as well.

Not original baggie but there is a letter from the author suggesting a Book 2 is on the way - a scenario.

Some of the books are for another member including that one.  I picked up copies of the Strange Acorn books about 5 years ago.  I read them back then but don't remember.  What does come to mind is that they are near impossible to find.
