TimeMaster had:

The boxed set
TimeTricks book
GM screen (plus adventure)
7 adventures (Assassin Queen, Terrible Swift Ford, Cleopatra Gambit, Temples of Blood, Crossed Swords, Sea Dogs of England, Whom the Gods Destroy)

I think that's everything Pacesetter released, at least.

Orphyte may have released some adventures of their own after they bought the rights, but I don't know for certain.

I own(ed) some of those, so you'd think I'd be able to remember them. :oops:

Here are scans of the two 54-50'-Orphyte sheets that are in the Wabbit's Wevenge box:

This one is actually more of a fluorescent orange in color but scanned yellow:

Big Pacesetter fan here. Chill was an excellent game. In fact, you can use Chill products as supplements for your CoC campaign. I have never cared for the Mayfair version. Mayfair really lost the "spirit" of Chill and tried way too hard to make it a true Horror rpg.

Timemaster was ok, Star Ace - not so much. TM and SA only had a handful of products and went up against some pretty tough competition at the time. SA never had a chance and TM just never stuck.

All Pacesetter rpgs use the same rule mechanic so they are easy to learn.

They also produced a game called Sandman - simply awesome. Problem was that it came out just before Pacesetter disappeared.

Pacesetter also produced two stand alone games (board games) Wabbit Wampage and Black Morn Manor - both of which I highly recommend. I think Wabbit had a follow-up called Wabbit Wevenge, but I don't have it and have never spent the time search it out. Probably should though because I think that would be the last item for my Pacesetter collection.  :D

I will be adding all the Pacesetter stuff to the Acaeum Wiki over the next couple weeks. Just finished scanning all the pics for upload.

I really need to find out who has the rights to Chill at this time....Mayfair is gone - bought by daVinci Games who I know nothing about.


So I sent an e-mail to Don Bingle and I asked him what he knew about Chill and Mayfair games. He said:

Mayfair is the company that bought the copyrights and trademarks to Chill from Pacesetter's secured creditor, just as 54-40' Orphyte, Inc. was the company that bought the copyrights and trademarks to Timemaster, Sandman, Star Ace, and the Wabbit games.  Where Chill has gone from Mayfair, I do not know.  I heard last August that someone was putting out a web version of it.

Orphyte has since sold its rights to Star Ace and the Wabbit games.  We still own Timemaster and Sandman.  We still have stock of both, as well as small amounts of Chill inventory we got from a wholesaler years ago.

The rights to Chill are currently in the possession of one of the companies putting out 3rd-party CoC modules.  I think it's the one that put out "Murder of Crows", but I can't remember their name or be certain.
