It's a boxed set, an early fantasy RPG. (and I am looking for one, if anyone have one to sell in excellent condition :) )

A question about this old, cool collectible - has anybody ever seen the playtest edition referred to in Heroic Worlds?



BTW Here is a nice boxed edition on auction at the moment:

I remember a playtest version being sold by NK a while back (I should have bought it but didn't).  There might have been one for sale in one of the Stormberg auctions too.

Heroic Worlds states it is 164 photocopied pages, each page having 2 manuscript pages printed side by side. It states it was a "Limited Edition" so there must be some thing that distinguishes them - a signature perhaps?

Enlighten us stratochamp.

How much did the NW one sell for? May I ask how much you paid stratochamp?

$330 at GenCon last year: sounds about right, IMHO. (Auction link has been posted before ;))
