It's been two years. I don't think it's gonna happen. And at $2 a pop, there's no motivation there to write another one.

Well, first you're right: once i bought from ben and forgot to ask his signture on the modules...
i must add that even if interesting and well done, the "trilogy" do not close the series... i am still waiting for the following modules (and in the third one i bought it is written that new modules have to come on sale)...
i will ask ben!


I ask Ben occasionally if he has gotten another module into print.

The ones advertised here are PDF's....although he must have originals still around if you ask.

I got mine signed by both Ben and the artist.

I didn't realise they were PDFs. I'll need to get myself a set. That'll save me a bit of work.

I just recommended both sets of these to James @ grognardia.blogspot.com, although I definitely think that Kent's work is stronger than Ben's.

I did like Loki's Wine. It stands up well as an independent module. I also liked Terror in Terracina, but you really need Terracina Port to go with it, and that makes your total outlay pretty high for the adventure. Add to that the constant timeline monitoring, and you really have to be on your game as a DM to make it play well. So for me, cost and the trepidation of trying to run Terror in Terracina once it deviated from the expected plotline make it hard to recommend to anyone other than well established DMs. As a collector, they're worth having in any case. Deffinately untill everone jumps on the bandwagon and publishes their homebrew.

I just exchanged messages with Ben Burns about his next module.  He is planning to put another one out later this year.

I also contacted Kent Krumvieda - author of Tarracina Port- about a combined deal on all three items.  He is willing to combine shipping and give a small discount on all three items...city, two modules and shipping...for $44.

Bummer. I bought them all a couple of months back (Along with one extra map) and paid the listed price..... Shoulda waited...... :roll:

I like the stuff though. And as has been pointed out above by mbassoc2003, Loki's Wine is a good one.
Terror in Terracina can be revised to fit into your campaign as well with a bit of tweaking.

They're wargames rules.  The auction says "Wargames Research Group", and the pictures also have that text.  I don't know what the rarity is.



Hey!  They have a web page, albeit a very basic one - http://www.wargamesresearchgroup.net/

They give links to several additional web pages.
http://www.wrg.me.uk/WRG/wrg.html
One such link (See above) sends you to the History of Wargames Research Group, which lists all of the earliest rules and expansions they published.

The Archives pages offers scans of the first set of rules that they published in 1969. And the group continued to publish expansions every year. The Fourth such expansion was in 1973 for Fantasy rules. Using Elves, Ents, Trolls, Giants, Goblins, Orcs and Dragons amongst many other creatures........

i've had some of these books before - dont think they are very rare or anything and never seem to sell for that much, but they are a pretty good read for sure, especially the ones which are more fantasy related.

Just visited all those pages - an interesting half hour of surfing and reading! Fancy starting this as a small outfit in 1969 and still going with the same stuff in 2008. Remarkable!

I saw it was a Wee Warriors but was it just a fantasy boardgame or was it rpg related? I'm sure the seller was shocked at the final price.

There is a Wee Warriors thread around here somewhere with some info on Dragonlord.  Pretty darn rare from what I recall reading...especially with the game sheet and chits intact.
