Here's something uncommon:

Does anyone have a date for this?  I couldn't find one in the book.

Anyone seen one of these before? I was watching it until the price started to go silly. The blurb says it's a book TSR had crushed.

In 1982, Solar published this book without TSR licence. The book have been available only few months before being withdrawn from the sale.



The rules are very confused and are not a traduction of D&D basic rules but new rules by themselves. A lot of confusion are made in the book, with for example a confusion between character class and race (the race determine the HP).

The existence of a game called AD&D and TSR are quickly written towards the end of the book  :)

And it went a bit low, prolly due to condition.

Very hard to find.

Here's something from 1997, so everyone probably has one:

Details would be good. I have very little of Clint Bigglestone or DunDraCon on my site. Was he a prolific publisher (like Bob Liddil)?

grodog wrote:Looks like Clint Bigglestone's art :D

I don't know. But it's not his publication. It was published in 1981 in Madison Heights, Michigan. Could it be an orphan?

Could be.  Most of my Bigglestone/DunDraCon stuff is still in CA, and I'll be picking it up in a few weeks.  More to follow later.

^^^ :)

Was the Conan Versus The Yeti situation one of the actual encounters, or is that just the artist taking some artistic license?

Very nice to see Brian Asbury artwork again.  Lots of that in Trollcrusher, of course, where he was one of the more entertaining contributors.   I don't believe I ever saw Kandroc Keep, though.  I'll have to rummage through my 1978 TC's to see if there's any references to it in his contributions there.

Clint  Bigglestone rings some mental bells.

Wasn't he involved with Different Worlds or some other magazine?

Who remembers off the top of their head?
