Curious if anyone here owns copies of these (or any others from BDS)? These are a part of Seattle gaming history as the BDS merged and founded Dragonflight Con here in the same year 1980.

I do. I also have Mystic Runes: The Revenge of Pleasantcorners (1982).

I'd be curious as to the plot of those rare modules

I attended an Oktoberfest party here this past weekend and talked with a friend who owns a local game shop. He owns a copy of Rescue of Ardene also. He says American Eagle was the name of a game store here back in the day located in Ballard / Greenwood.

I also, also have Myroun Island (1980) and The Ice Follies (1981) so that makes five modules. There may be more, but those are the ones I know of.

Maybe "Kobold Keep" is another?

An interesting tidbit here regarding Dragonflight, and note the references to "American Eagles" as well.

Increment, are there more pages to that flyer, or just the one? Curious because one of my gaming buddies used to work at USS Enterprise at that time.

That first issue runs just four pages, and includes pretty basic information about the purpose of the club, as well as a membership list of 27, of whom the most interesting is Larry Bond (yes, that Larry Bond). There doesn't seem to be much else about the USS Enterprise shop apart from the front page.

Thanks for the reply. I remember being in the shop and they would run games in the back room, while I could only rubberneck to see what was going on.
