That's a great item.  The only unusual Lankhmar I have is this:

Here's something I'm posting for the cover.  Check out the face on the lion.

It's undated.  If anybody knows from when it springs, please pass along.

The thing about that lion's face is....it shows how the words "professional" and "good" might not be the same thing.  Remember back in the days when gaming was not big business?

re: the Paragon Gladiatorial Rules, I have this edition dated November 1977.  No indication as to whether this is first, second, etc. edition, just the date on the first page.

That's great.  Thanks.  I'm guessing from a couple of things that "The Lion" (or Perilous Poozer) is from 1974.  In the beginning (there are no page numbers), it records the following under Equipment Needed:

See Military Modelling' magazine for August 1973.

At the very end under Second Commercial it says:

We expect that our Twentieth Century skirmish Rules will also be out by Jan. '75 in the new format.

From that I would guess '74.

Also included is an extra sheet entitled "Gladitorial Rules--Amendments."

The home address is in Teddington.

I'd thought I'd stoke the furnace a bit.  Any of these out there?

It's from 1980, so it shouldn't be too hard.  The font style along the bottom should tell you who produced it.

Fantasy boardgame from Dimension Six.  I had one unpunched but sold it recently to Frank Mentzer.  It had some mildew smell so it went real cheap.

I thought that would be too easy.  Here's one that will test the depths:

I couldn't resist.  We should start a thread of all of the TSR licensed crapola.  In fact, I think I'll start one with a different sharpener.

Here's something that will be easy too, but I'll post the picture anyway because I doubt many people will have any examples, and the artwork is fantastic:

Anybody else have any stashed away?

Why, yes. Both this set and the other (RPGA) set, in fact.
And the Tom Wham original drawings from which the RPGA set was made.

Odd that you don't have the pink $1 bill, tho (the DaveDollar).

True.... but I don't think there's any shame in being trumped by Frank.
