Yes, it has that "I know I have seen this before" look to it. I just can't place it. I want to say that I saw it lying on a table at Gen Con, Origins, whichevercon, a long, long time ago.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

It is in fact from 1986. I certainly never saw this at Gencon. I did not know to be searching for it until Heroic Worlds came out. The address listed for the publisher was Larchmont New York.

Heh; not $150 of "interesting", though. :)

Where had the cover been posted before, or is it just the artist/style that's familiar?

Since we were on combat systems, one actually sold at cons while I try and fail to figure out that latest submission!

Sorry 'bout the lack of snazzy cover art, Brette. ;)

*g* No stopping you, Bill. ;)

Did you file that for reference at the time given the seller in question, or actually have another copy?
1978 was rather early to be in the marketplace for selling combat systems.

That'll be a ninja from Bill for you as well, then, Brette. :)
*points above to the answer*. Google wouldn't have helped, either!

Didn't even have time to make a cup of tea... ;p

I couldn't find what I was looking for, so it's 1978 again;

well the only thing that i remember writing about that fits your parameters is "in search of santa's sack" from 1981. but assuming that's not correct, i'll guess Kree Mountain

I did give out a couple more hints;) (I agree Frank it is very Russ Nicholson)

Image

Based on the convention scenario/campaign  of the same name by Mark Morrison,
Penelope Love et al. Gruesomely illustrated by Brad Ellis.

"Way back then in the RQ2 glory days Chaosium commissioned the authors to
create a 3 box set of adventures based on what they saw here, it's that
good. Can a motley band of Sartarites stop the Lunar invasion and find a
traitor in their midst?  Very few copies of this were ever printed, and you had to
be at Arcanacon II (1984) to buy it. First and only edition, 48 pages."

Bill you are out on this one..

An easier one.. rpg rules printed in the USA but with a setting in the British Isles.. "If your looking for a 'role playing game' with more realism without burying you in charts, you've finally found it!"...  Its "different from anything you have ever seen!" (Don't you love it when they say things like that...)

I've never heard of Kree Mountain but I don't really collect RQ.  I do have some of the other Arcanacon & Phantasacon items.

The latest entry is probably only a rarity 4 or 5 so easy to guess :)

That's a significant part of the appeal RPGs have, like ministers of competing churches - each is the only path to salvation. Each is a re-creation of the universe, with its author claiming godhood & the right to re-invent the laws of physics as each sees fit. So in a sense this guy is right, his is the only correct understanding of his own inner world. From there we proceed to the implications, the personality suggested by the worldview. Dick's Eye in the Sky is a good comparison.

Never heard of Kree Mountain as well. Excellent!

I saw this cover recently but can't remember the name. Perhaps it was for sale on NKG?
