We believe that this is an early Dave Trampier.
The question is still: "In what TSR publication is it found?"

My friends Dave & Gary made a quantum leap in the human soul. Remember them.

I was going to say Australian G1 -- right color, but that visible squiggle isn't on the front cover of G1.  Maybe on the back.

Good guess, hint # 2 is that's it's digest size.


I draw the line at collecting... D&D Towels.

Did we need: Jade Magi Sewer Crawl

Shoulda been: ".. from Pangreenia to Floratopolis, from mystical Treeonia of spectral Forests to Schruborial dimensions."  - The Forests of Leng

That's definitely a Necromican.  Better challenge is to spell the title properly (yes, I looked it up after spelling it incorrectly as well) or guess how the damage was caused.

It almost looks like there was a shipping statement on the envelope that got ripped off.

It doesn't help that Lovecraft uses "Necronomican" and FAE uses "Necromican".

723 williams was the early store for the MOHS.. The Dragon seems to easy.. and since Dave created the Shlump Da Orcas his alter ego editor of The Stretegic Preview.. I'm going to say Its the Stragegic Preview #6 (since its obscure enough that not many people have .. and the fact that you mention it here.. Obscure Collecting Knowledge)

Brette:)

Still, not as egregious as that "Negromican" that popped up on ebay a while ago.

I bet Mars is right, it looks like a window sticker got ripped off, along with most of the cardboard.  I'm just glad the cover of the booklet didn't come off along with it :)

Know what y'mean: except it's what you were waiting for, rather than promising a chance to play yourself (so to speak), apparently. :)

I'm almost positive I've seen that before, but I just can't place it.
