Got outbid on this lot - not really sure what to go for as there was not much information I could find on these. Anyone familar with this? It looks quite floorplan heavy. But interesting.

Not me I am afraid. The cover damage of the first one put me off a bit (even though the other ones seemed better).

I think the guy still publishes stuff though.

How many more of these are there?

Are they all just maps plus some frameworks for stocking them, or are any more developed?

I don't think any of them are fleshed out.
But they are better than the carp Hess Games used to put out.

I did.
Didn't think they were worth making PDFs out of.
Thankfully the Author seems to have done it, and still they seem to be rarely known.
That is probably all we need to know about how good these are, but for a completist they are rare in paper form.
The online PDFs are not direct facsimiles of the original either, but reimaged documents from the author, so no doubt changes as he's matured.

I stopped trying to chase down the Hess Games stuff when I realised how pointless it was trying to make PDFs out of those too.
Stuff has to be pretty dire to avoid my collection, so these are notable for having managed to limbo below my very low bar. :D
That said, it wasn't a bad price for a collector, and it probably won't depreciate in value, even if it disappoints the buyer.

I am looking for Dreamworlds Fantasy Role Playing Rules in pdf format. Don't know why but this cover exerts a tremendous appeal on my senses.

Should i peruse the deep web in order to find it?  :) My hunt has begun, wish me good luck

If he (the author) hasn't re-typeset it and posted it on RPGDrivethru, the odds of you finding it on the deep web are very remote. There aren't too many people out there scanning the old stuff the way I do, and it's not something I've got. Indeed, I didn't even know it existed until I read your post.  :oops:   I'll keep my eyes open on my travels around the hinterland of the visible web. I haven't ever been tempted elsewhere, but if you go looking into darker corners than noticeboards like reddit and 4chan, and find anything interesting RPG related that isn't topside, I'd certainly be interested in your tales of dungeoneering down there.
