I bid on this because it was cheap and the shipping was right.

Is this any big deal?


The price looks really good.  I've looked at those a couple of times but I don't really know what they are.

Condolences on the Crystal Sword, Mark:

Would have been a sweet win.

'Grats to Lance, though.

Decent price on Society.  Nice one!   :D

I thought Sword looked most interesting, though.   :wink:

Someone else here had a Silverdawn, IIRC, without the map. Does anyone else have the modules?


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.

What's weird is why they are so rare. They're not looseleaf, so you would assume they would not be tossed or destroyed.

I'm not sure why they are so rare either.  They were the basis or for a play by mail game from a company that expanded their play by mail into a career.  They still exist and do computerized software gaming.

Thanks for the congrats, Bom and Mars...

I have a copy of The World of Silverdawn without a map and also have Society of Sorcery and Search for the Lost City.

Have to keep a lookout for Plateau...

You picked up Plateau as well:


** expired eBay auction **


Its the one I didn't bid on since I had already it.

On another note, I just noticed that Abebooks has World of Silverdawn, High Ranger Guard, Society of Sorcery and Village of Peddler's Ferry for $5 each -  I guess I should say had :)  Here's hoping WoS comes with a map.  Is it a separate foldout map that comes inside the book?

To the first, D'oh... :oops:

I should keep better track of my stuff....and the stuff I win...

To the second (at Abebooks)... 8O ...nice haul (what Frank said)...bookmarked it...

To the third, I would think it is a separate foldout map (looking at my copy sans map) since there does not appear to be any place that the map looks to be attached to.

Nice find!  I seem to recall seeing either another copy of this or one that looks similar a few years ago but I don't recall the details.  Nice pick up though.

Agreed.  I thought I saw one a while ago as well.  Wasn't it Frank who sold one?

I don't think Frank sold it - I would probably remember bidding on it.  He might have pointed it out here after the auction though.

I recall that cover. Don't know if I ever had one. It probably had a small print run like a lot of the knockoff stuff.
In this case, I'd say deshrink the thing and see what it is all about. I imagine the non-TSR collectors wold rather be able to look at it.

I have never been very lucky finding really great BIN's but this one was a steal.

My Ebay budget for next month is toast though.  8)
