Has anyone purchased a hardcopy item from Badaxe Games?  I saw one of their publications this past week but it did not make it into my shopping cart.

I have a few Badaxe items including two hardcover books that I think are quite good: Grim Tales and Slavelords of Cydonia.

I agree, those are the two BadAxe hardcovers I have as well.  Very gritty adventuring with some Burroughs John Carter like flavor.

http://www.trolllord.com/store/index.html

Troll Lord Games says that they now own the Chenault and Gray Commercial Print Shop.

What this means is that they now publish 24 and 32 page modules for $4.99.

The link takes you to their store.  Scroll down to see the prices on their newest modules.

The TLG main-page news says
We are going back to those good old days. We are cutting back our standard module price from $8.95/$9.99 to $4.99! As each adventure undergoes the face lift the new prices are applied. All new printings of these listed books are in perfect bound.

TLG has been printing, or at least binding, their stuff for some time... it looks like they may have recently obtained "the missing link" to allow them to do exactly what they want in-shop. That is good news for pricing. It also means there is more likelihood of misprints (they are Trolls,) which could be good for collectors, in theory.

I finally got my own book binding machine too. That's when the real fun starts.

The "old days."  8O

When you figure $4.99 in 1977 dollars as compared $4.99 in 2010 dollars, Troll Lord Games is pretty much selling modules for free.

In my mind, I still see the D and G series monochrome modules in their shrinkwrap, in that hobby store in Oregon City.  1978.

$5.99 back then was all the money I had.  It seemed like a lot.

If only...

$5.99 in 1978 dollars is just a shade under $20 in 2010 dollars, according to the CPI.

(Going the other way, TLG is selling their modules for the equivalent of $1.50 in 1978 dollars.)

3) They really are good modules.

No seriously when I read the new City of Gods I was very impressed.  Don't even look at the Dungeon of Blackmoor if you can help it.  Redwood Scar was a long time ago and it didn't seem to resonate like CotG and TotF did from reading them.

ShaneG.


OK - I have acquired City of the Gods and I have read most of it.

I agree with you, Shane.  This is an outstanding example of the D20 system by an author (Harley Stroh of Dungeon Crawl Classics fame) who really knows his stuff.

Review to follow....

I missed the TLG $10 sale... the link is gone now... but there were a couple books I had wanted.

Does anyone have the recent sale list saved?

If they were Dungeon Crawl Classics, the sale is still on...and possibly a bit better.

Don't be put off by the two over-priced items they put on their first page.  Those are both rares of some sort or other.

Beautiful - Thanks Gnat!

I'm not 100% sure which ones you mean?  I am missing a couple C&C adventures that I was hoping to pick up.  I like the TLG line, but I wouldn't have thought any particularly rare (well, since Zagyg).

This is probably a bit of an odd question, I've got a copy of the Rules Compendium and now several D20 modules and adventures. However, I can't seem to find what some of the abbreviations and descriptions mean in the mods.

Do I need a copy of the PHB and/or DMG? Maybe I'm too 1st Ed orientated with the Str. Int. stats and can't understand what some things mean?

Its just I'd love to convert them to 1st ed and whilst I've done that on JG items thanks to getting their meanings sorted, I can't get my head on the D20 stuff.  :oops:

cheers for any advice  :)

Yes, if you plan to use D20 adventures, then (IMO) you should try to find some cheap copies (Reading quality, not collector neccessarily quality) 3.5 Edition Core Rules books, including the Monster Manual, Players Handbook, and DMs Guide.
