Nope.  :)

This game apparently had two editions.  The photos are of the first edition, which is listed on one site (John Kim's Darkshire.Net) as being published in 1992, even though the book itself is copyrighted 1991.  A second edition was published in 1994.

Here's the full version of the 'zine I posted earlier:

Shire Talk went to 7 or 8 issues, changing format to A5 after issue 6.  Sold mainly at cons, although it was also available by subscription.

Hey, got the hang of my scanner.

You guys are killing me with the non-TSR stuff. I'm not much into fanzines, which has kept me from slitting my wrists since this thread was started, but damn......

That guy on the back of Crypt is very familiar to me as well.  I cannot place where I've seen that before.

The Necromancer's Bane put out by Bridge Games UK, copyrighted 1988, more of a set of miniture rules from memory, I also have their second supp, The Necromancer's Spell Book, this seems to be a book of generic fantasy spells...

Excellent, although my copy says Brigade Games, Durham.  Try this one:

Truly a book of infinite spells.

Here's the answer to my first (and possibly only) mystery item:

ImageImage

Player characters have been transported from Earth to Dontarra.  Yes, it's Machineguns & Magic, complete with my usual attempt at tearing off the pricetag.  MG  Games Publishing, Inc. 88 pages and a double-sided character sheet.

Interesting game design points:

50 Luck Points
. . . subtract d10 from Luck Point pool to re-attempt a failed roll, refilled daily)

Hurt Points
. . . Strength (d100) + 20 ("Because we LIKE you!")
. . . Total number of Wounds and Thumps that can be taken before death or unconsciousness

1981 Baron Publishing, La Puente, California?
I've never seen one though. Thanks. How many Pages? 40? Is it a blank book for cleric characters to add their spells to?


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

Oh heck. I wish you hadn't provided the answer.  :D
I would have been pulling my hair out trying to figure it out. It has the look of the leatheresque encyclopedia magica.

beasterbrook,

I love Lankhmar.  And am extremely jealous.  No, I have never seen or heard of this.  Worth some indepth research.  Any way to contact those on the credits list?  

Also am intrigued by the subtitle:  SLayers in Lankhmar II.
