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.

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.

Anyone seen one of these before? I was watching it until the price started to go silly. The blurb says it's a book TSR had crushed.

In 1982, Solar published this book without TSR licence. The book have been available only few months before being withdrawn from the sale.



The rules are very confused and are not a traduction of D&D basic rules but new rules by themselves. A lot of confusion are made in the book, with for example a confusion between character class and race (the race determine the HP).

The existence of a game called AD&D and TSR are quickly written towards the end of the book  :)

And it went a bit low, prolly due to condition.

Very hard to find.
