I have my rules Supp on hand and the only copyright date I can find is 1986 on the back. It is 16 pages in length...

The 8/87 rules supplement runs to 20 pages.

I'm wondering if there might also be different versions of the combat summary sheet. I suspect there would have to be, but there's no convenient way to identify the ones in my set.

Thanks for jumping into this thread and lending your expertise muadra!

Below are the items I am still looking for:

1st ed
Skyrealms of Journe (1st ed soft cover book)
Maustin-Caji


2nd ed
Skyrealms of Journe (2nd ed boxed set)
Companion Journe: Burdoth
Essay pack #1

Jorune Rules Supplement
Companion Journe: Ardoth
Earth-Tec
Playing the Iscin Races
Shanthas of Jorune


3rd ed
Skyrealms of Journe (3rd ed soft cover book)
Innocents of Gauss
Sholari Pack, The
Sobayid Atlas, The
Gire of Sillipus, The
3rd edition Value pack - added

Fanzines
Sarceen's Knowledge (1 issue)
Sholari (3 issues)
Borkelby's Folly (3 issues)
Journal of the Tansoor Historical Society (1 issue)


Other
Alien Logic (Computer Game)
Rubber Mask (of a Shanthas from memory?)
Several T-shirts
Poster of the 2nd ed. Boxed set cover
Review package (photocopies of reviews of the game)


My collection isn't as complete as yours and Brette's. I have looked a little for the Fanzine's but never gave myself much hope of finding them.  In addition to the above, I have been buying only those WhiteWolf's with Jorune stuff in them. If either of you have doubles or see items for sale anywhere, I am lacking, I'd love a head's up!

The 3rd ed are of course still being printed by Chessex. They have bundled the 3rd ed book, Sholari pack and Sobayid Atlas into a special value pack, which some people would consider a collectible. The JG value packs have been going for a fair bit, but I just can't get excited by them. It seems to me rather silly to have copies of items and then have them again bundled in a sale pack!

I have a question though. For the third edition, did the original writers sell the rights to Chessex? Is this game basically defunct? The fan sites do not seem to have much activity. It is a pity as I see the same potential in Jorune as for Crossby's Harn system - which is impressive in the way the dedicated fan base are slowly filling out the detail of the Harn World - it would be great if the same could be done with Jorune.

Hi obiter,

Old games like Alien Logic will not run on today's powerful PCs. I have a program called dosbox, which is available here:

http://www.dosbox.com/

It is a dos emulator and I have been able to run most of my Windows 95 and earlier games on it. It is a little complicated but there are tutorials around. Have a look also at www.abandonia.com

Alien Logic can be played on dosbox.

on the list of products there was one other very limited gencon release not mentioned. it was called companion jorune: jorune sholari supplement. under the title reads " this is a pre-release version of a supplement which may appear at a later date in a substantially altered form". it`s a 12 single-side pages, spiral bound 8.5x11.5 inch. copyright 1991. iirc they had 12 to 16 of them there each with a unique pithy saying on the cover. one other jorune story about the boxed set. again iirc they had the box ready ahead of the books at gencon so they were selling preorders in numerical order. i walked up and was talking to amy just as she was selling #99 to a guy who then decided to buy #100 as well. i said i`d like #100 and why don`t we bid for it. amy loved it, we started and i won it for $40 (amy told me next year that the guy was so upset after i left he bought #101 too so he bracketed me). a few months later my signed & numbered copy  showed up in the mail with a personalized note  thanking me. i wonder if she remembers that crazy kid at her booth.

in the near future (i.e. within the month) my wife and i will be taking pictures of the frp wall and sending them in to scott. i was also going to include pictures of some of the very rare items. and since you asked we`ll include a picture of the jorune item as well. as to the # of boxes, amy had indicated to me at the time something in the 110 to 120 range.

Thanks for posting that. Interesting.



I am starting to think I should give up on this hobby as I am so darn absent-minded. Today, I planned the day around sniping an auction (I never win otherwise). A Jorune set with the Ardoth and Burdoth expansions. I still do not have a copy of Burdoth. Of course, come 12:30, I utterly and completely forgot. This happens to me on at least half of the things I plan to bid on these days.




** expired eBay auction **




Look at the price $28! Arrrrgh. No let me add a few mores 'r' s to my arrrgh.



Arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh! I really wanted that.

Yes. That is very cheap. Ardoths and Burdoths often reach $50 individually. The set is in nice condition too. My worst auction miss was a big lot in Melbourne. Someone clearing their flat mates gaming stuff out and pickup only. There must have been 50 games including two Heroquest sets and some Talisman not to mention regular role playing. I was going to snipe with $220. However, had to take my kids to an afterschool class. I asked my wife if she could take them so I could bid and she said 'no way'. So I put in my bid early. The only other contender, whom I outbid, bid over me before auction close 30 min later. Had I sniped I would have won. Same thing today my wife wanted to go out shopping and I'm looking after my youngest, so got distracted. Anyway, can't complain! Another will come along!

Did anyone here ever get a copy of Journal of the Tansoor Historical Society?

This seems to have been designed through the regular jorune.org website. The page is still there http://www.jorune.org/tansoor/ but it obvioulsy hasn't been active active for a long time.

I tried contacting the author but no reply.
