anyone know if the other modules in this series were released?

How much assistance did Gygax actual provide for this module?


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.

Well this 1st print version is sealed in old plastic. Dont know if they sealed the 2nd print but it might be a way to tell the difference.

If it is sealed in plastic then it was probably done by some 3rd party.  All the copies I have had pass through my hands (about 8 now) have all been ziplock bagged - about half and half with/without the screen.

Agreed.  Mine was a bag as well.

picked up a copy of Chaosium's "Cities" for $5, shipped.

also picked up a copy of "All the World's Monsters" for less than $8, shipped.

Neither are uber collectible, but I find Cities to be quite useful, and while I don't get a lot of direct use out of AtWM, it is fun to flip through to get the creativity flowing.

Um... Email Inner City at [email protected], tell Chris Clark (the sole proprietor) that I said to fix the shipping. He'll take care of you.

If someone is interested in the original Inner City game (released in 1982), C. Clark should still have some Inner City RPG boxed sets for sale (but not listed on his website). He sold some boxes on ebay but he told me that he have a good stock...  

Playin' in the streets is a developpement of Inner City.

Seller krull22871has a Champions lead figures boxed set from Grenadier.  I can't tell if the box is sealed or not.  New-in-box implies not shrinkwrapped, but who knows:

That Champions box certainly appears to be smarmed.

A large stack of gaming mags has appeared at the central austin HPB. I picked up Pegasus 1-3, White Dwarf 6+, Sorcerer's Apprentice 2+, Dragon 29+, etc. for $1.98 each. I left behind plenty of nice things that I already own copies of, in case anyone here has access to the store.

I received this morning a huge package with several items I bought to a German seller. Very nice seller. All boxes are in excellent shape with absolutely mint contents!
