I'm looking for some info about Tom Moldvay's Arkhimagos PbM game.  I just bought one from NobleKnight (at the same $75 price listed here) but I'm not sure if my copy has all of the components or not.  

The game comes in a big orange tube with Spellbinder stickers on it, a poster map/game board?, and an orange old-style spine-clipped plaster report cover/folder with 17
pages (13 of sort, 4 of "rules").  Pics of the latter two @




Most importantly, there aren't any credits listed to indicate that Tom Moldvay is the author though, nor any other items in the tube ("McGregor" is credited on the images).  Mars listed it in the Moldvay Bibliography on DF after Tom's passing, so I'm presuming that some evidence exists that it's Tom's work.  

Any additional info about this, including if your copy has any authorial credits listed, would be very appreciated!

Thanks :D

Not to jump on your post Alan, but I believe I have a couple of Spellbinder booklets that I just listed for sale.

However I know not a thing about them, other than it seems to be a company in Ohio around 1984...

Can you give me any further details?
