A couple years ago I bought Trollcrusher #3 on eBay, but have never been certain whether it was complete. I suspect it isn't, and I'm curious what parts are missing. Notably it has no obvious cover page that says Trollcrusher, nor any kind of editorial or contribution details from Bryan Ansell (which I have seen on an earlier issue).

Can any of you confirm the contents of issue 3, the page count, or whether it came with a cover?

Here's what I got, in front-to-back order, with numbers below indicating relative page numbers in the stapled set (because there are no actual page numbers):

1: Asgard Miniatures ad
2: blank
3-4: Creeping Woffle (Dave Waring)
5: Imploading Rune mk. 1A (Paul Blackwell)
6-10: Mithrandir Rules, OK? #2 (Mark Gleeson)
10: (bottom half page) untitled (Ian Wishart with comment from the editor or Steve)
11: blank
12: Whom the Gods Destroy (Malcolm Griffiths)
13: Stop The Dungeon I Want To Get Off! #3 (David Row)
14-15: Tales From Khorshemish And The Scarlet Citadel #1 and #2 (Nigel Clarke)
16-17: Voyage To Skull Island Or There And Back Again (author? maybe part of preceding)
18-21: Colour Mages (originally appeared in The Wild Hunt #9) (Peter Aronson)
22-24: The Seventh Hell Of Wurmwold #1 (David Michael Friedman)
25-29: Miuvdus Vuct Delepit (Mike Cule)
29: (bottom half page) Quickie From Steve
30-34: I Have No Stoat And I Must Breed (Jon Noble)
34: (bottom half page) complaint letter from Franky
35: The Rundin Chronicle (Gary Slack)
35: (bottom half page) Personal Insperation (Steve Fitzwater)
36: blank

Incidentally the various half-pages all appear to have been typed by the editor (presumably Ansell), and 35 might suggest it continues to 34, due to running out of space, and a shared last & first line of content (“Dear Trollcrusher”)

The one I got was TC#3 by itself.

There was a combined TC#1 + TC#5 though, from the same seller. The forums captured the listing here:

... it didn't capture the listing photos, but I saved those if you need them for some reason.
