From what I've been able to uncover there appears to be 4 publications by Bad Dog Publications.

Fluffy Quest, published in 1981 by Rick Reid
Fluffy Quest republished in 1984 by Bad Dog Publications
    The one with the yellow cover, the adventurer and the two torches on the wall.
Fluffy Quest II published in 1984 by Bad Dog Publications
Fluffy Quest The Special Edition published in 1984 by Bad Dog Publications

What I'm looking for is anyone who has the 1981 publication of Fluffy Quest, and anyone who has a copy of Fluffy Quest II.

I assume 'Bad Dog' is a reference to 'Fluffy', the dog in the quest. :D

    There is also a Fluffy Quest module in one of the very early Dungeon magazines.  It is called Fluffy Goes to Heck and it was in one of the first six issues.

   It is the only Fluffy Quest module I have read, and it is a hoot.

Thanks for that. I found it in Dungeon Issue 4. It looks like a good laugh.

Uhh...thanks?

I think though you misjudge your audience. The people on this site are ambivalent at best, flatly negative at worst regarding electronic copies. For many of them, only the original will do.

Actually, there are a number of collectors here who also like to acquire PDF's to go with hardcopies.

Some will go so far as to collect different variations on the same file.

It does look to be a legitimate publication, rather than a piracy issue which was my first assumption. Why Rick Reid would not publish this through RPGNow/Drivethru and get it to the target market, I have no idea. I can only assume he is so out of thouch with the modern world and gaming that he thinks Barnes & Noble is where people buy RPGs from these days.

Thus the word "ambivalent".

I'd prefer a real piece of paper, but if it came down to it, and I had to go with a fake, err, digital version, I would... and then clearly label it in my collection as such. Of course, I would print and bind it since I hate reading RPG stuff on a PC.

Oh, I agree entirely.  The PDF is handy.  The module does not actually exist unless there is a hard copy.

Ian,

Why not asking your questions to Rick Reid through eBay, as you bought one of them some days ago ? ;)

As "Dwarf" could write : "the sole interest in PDF is to discover/read modules without having to unshrink them"  :lol: (or to have a very good idea concerning its quality before spending a lot of money)

And in case a module is not so good :
* either "let's continue to be a crazy crying collector and let's buy it !" (as me :lol: )
* or let's wait for a very very small end of auction price ;)


That said, i have read it in Dungeon Mag #4 and it looks like a very funny module to master or play : trully recommended !

I don't really think there are small fry collectors. Most collectors have things they like, things they learn about and things they just don't. With the exception of the few uber collectors with the room and the money and th desire to build massive collections, most of the collectors here buy, trade and collect whatever fits with their collections as they see them.

Maybe one or two take the step up to uber collector level after many years, and maybe one or two turn dealer, as I did, but the for the whole, most people would consider themselves 'small fry collectors', maybe even the ones with expensive items.

What's his eBay ID? I'd like to fill in some of the gaps in the knowledge we have on Fluffy Quest.
Yep. Wouldn't have thought anyone would have been stupid enough to try to sell PDFs of someone elses work through Barnes & Noble. Maybe RR would be minded to try RPGNow.

In my experience, good or bad is not a factor in collectibility.

Some of the most sought-after collectible modules are entirely disposable monster hotel dungeons.

If you're talking useable modules...and PDF files...you cannot go wrong with 0one's Blueprint series.  A bargain at two bucks per file - but not collectible at all in hard copy.

I'm a small fry collector....and remain a small fry after collecting enough small fry items to line my office.  Ironic, aye?  :?
