No worries and thank you for the clarification.
Besides, I have mailed the Fantasy Gamer Magazine to another Acaeum Member anyway.
Never got to read it through though...  :(
If I had thought it would not have damaged it, I would have scanned the entire magazine for my future reading pleasure. :)
Oh well... perhaps I will see another copy of Issue One again one fine E-Bay day.

I have a copy of Fantasy Gamer #1 if you're interested.  It doesn't have the protective mailing cover.  I think I bought it at a store.   I bought magazines to read but it doesn't look read.  I'd say it's in excellent condition.

Just got my Arduin trilogy from the '70's.  They arrived in really excellent shape and are full of Monty Haul goodness and truly devastating beasties!

There's also several good Erol Otus illustrations.  

I had these books as a kid and loved them!

These fall into the category of great eye candy that I will likely never use.

Another one for the 'token bid being the winner' files. Don't see the insert, but looks like a decent set.

Ritual of the Golden Eyes (or some such thing) was also released. I don't know if it's the same series, but it is the same publisher and format.


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

There are two versions of Challenge Of Arm's - with and without the color outer cover.  The version Jason linked too is the first printing, and the one serleran pointed to on Inner City's site is the second.

For One module shipping costs would be $5... I can live with that.

But I was going to order two copies of each, and shipping to from US to US would have been $14 for just those four modules!!!    8O !
NO FREAKING THANKS DUDES, I PASS…

The North Texas Convention is coming up in a couple more weeks anyway and this was not even on my list a short time ago.
My Impulse to get it NOW! Has (thankfully) passed...

Their shipping costs formula has lost them a sale for sure.

There is some info on Dragonsfoot but you'll have to do a bit of digging.  I asked Gary about it a few years back.  At the time I also wondered if it was close/related/influenced to/be Castle Greyhawk.

The last part, Castle Wolfmoon, seems to be behind schedule by about a decade now but still seems to be on the list of things to get out.  The first module, Challenge of Arms, may come with the dark cover which is actually a screen or just the white covered book - at some point it was decided the screen was too dark so no longer included.

I think there is only 1 printing of the book.  But the "dark cover" is actually a screen.  If you notice it is very dark so was a detriment to the cover and removed.

I have a feeling the third in the series was slated for release through an alternative publisher. I remember looking into it way back when, but I can't be sure and can't lay my hands on my notes.

I'd agree that there is only one actual printing, but since we don't really split hairs of edition vs. printing vs. version too much around here, I just simplified it.  The point is, there is a difference and complete would include the dark cover.
