one of the rolemaster rebinding jobs where they took multiple books and threw them into a new (& unlabelled) cover?
i don't want to besmearch the fine legacy of the charlton/fenlon/amthor group at ICE; the rebinding jobs were done by Niedlinger & Kubasch after the other folks were long gone.

Yes, the Rolemaster hardcover Limited Edition of course.  I guess I'm missing a page though, you know, the one where typically the publisher or author explains the point of doing the special reprint :)

Anyone recall how/where they were sold?  Or any particular 'buzz' about the book (or Rolemaster in general) at the time?  I think the contents were fairly dated by the time this ws printed.  Just me being curious I suppose.

don't think of it as a special reprint. think of it as a merciless cash grab, where they took old stock, jammed the books AS IS inside an ugly cover and sold them as limited edition (i think 200) items. Limited by the existing stock they had lying around that they tried to pawn off on people....

Sorry about the delay...
Back on 30 Nov, I wrote in Stump the Forum:Where in D&D canon* does the following sentence appear?

"This monster only attacks metal objects, it will not physically harm an adventurer."

* canon, ie not in a magazine or adventure

That's the obvious reference, but no, quote's not from the Monster Manual (I).

This is from the MM1 Errata Sheet (only; this wording does not appear in MM1 itself).

Fugue for 3, but can't be 4th level music, obviously.

Obviously because a canon doesn't get L4 spells yet...

Is there any similar errata about the Carrion Crawler?---I've always given them a minimal bit attack (1-2 points of damage), figuring that they've got to eat somehow ;)   Hmm, or perhaps on the Monster Card....

Me neither, but the cover image seems to depict the Witch King attack on Eowyn and Merry in the Battle of the Pelennor Fields??

Beasties referenced on the errata sheet are:
Beetles, Giant
Bombadier Beetle
Beholder
Type III Demon
Dinosaur, Teratosaurus
Gnome
Goblin
Leopard
Orc
Portuguese Man-O-War
Rust Monster
Titan
Wight
Wraith
Xorn
Yeti
I would have thought there was a scan of that someplace here....

Ah; spotted one in passing that hadn't been guessed, apologies.

=> What should be the first issue of the first all-German (as opposed to "issued by occupying forces"!) "RPG" magazine from 1978, Mythos; later Spielwelt from 1985. The name of the game wasn't D&D at first, of course. :)
Bonus early German RPG item on the right for those who love blank covers...

a ferocious beast that would trample through the crotchety old Evelyn Woods and the young Nattily Woods (to borrow a line from Bored of the Rings).

I need to re read that book. It's been 20 years since I've read it. I wonder how it holds up?

I was going to guess 'Arkham Asylum' but I don't think that is a real place

My initial thought was Château de Versailles. But upon googling it... maybe not. :)
