Nice bit of work to get that started - I have had nightmares thinking about trying to sort out that mess.

Here are more items not yet posted for T&T.

Flying Buffalo news:
OK; not strickly a T&T item.
These (I think) were aimed at retailers to announce product releases and SRPs... and to encourage participation by Retailers to write back to FBI.
I have a copy of Issue 7.

Someone indicated about three Game master Adventures:

Here are some that I am aware of and have copies of.
Dungeon of the Bear.
Level One
Level Two
Level Three
Several printings of them.
and I have read about (But not seen) another Module/Booklet with all three levels in one volume.

The Game Master Adventure "Castle Ward" which came with the 5th Edition box sets; Is actually the above ground level for Dungeon of the Bear.
Though it does offer four other lead in scenarios for the Games Master.

Catacombs of the Bear Cult; Level 1

Uncle Ugly's Underground
(The only GM adventure listed here that I dont have a copy of)

The Isle of Darksmoke.
I: The Nameless Village and the Dome Level.
II: The Lower Level (I do not think this one was ever published and I think additional adventures were planned but never published for this scenario too.

Character Record Sheets.
25 - 3 hole punched Sheets with cover sheet.
For Characters and NPCs.
I recently posted a scan of the front cover sheet on the Acaeum Wiki pages.

Computer Generated Characters:
Sold in packs of 25, randomly genererated and none the same.

Survival Kit.

Three softcover Double Adventure books each with Two Solo Adventures.

One Fantasy Book
(Anthology of short stories related to T&T Solo adventures)
Mages Blood and Old Bones.

Buttons: I have none, but from what I have read there are many versions.

T&T Pencils.

T-Shirts

T&T Bumper Stickers (Who knows how many varities of them).

T&T Death Dice.

The Numerous catalogs must be mentioned as well.

Holy ...

That's some nice work there. I'm a reasonably serious T&T guy, and I had no idea of some of those smaller variations.

Nicely done.

I found a lot of 3 T&T binders recently @  
** expired eBay auction **
and picked them up.  Two contain 2 sheets each of Survival Kit charts, while the other lacked those, but contained an 5.5" x 8.5" white envelope of "Tunnels & Trolls Characters" (with Danforth art, of course)---25 pregen PCs on half-sheets of white computer roller paper, dot-matrix printing.  



Since they weren't on the list already (or I missed them), I thought the binders might be interesting to folks.

Yes mine probably is the one you saw and I have only had it about a year or so.
I have never seen another listed on E-Bay (Not that it didnt happen).
What issue do you have?

Quick question for some of the more knowledgable T&T collectors.  I recently won an auction for this T&T UK 5th edition:




** expired eBay auction **




I can't find anything about this particular version other than what Noble Knight has in their listing:



http://www.nobleknight.com/ProductDetai ... GenreID_E_



The contents in both listings are essentially the same.  The rulebook in the auction I won is laminated....no biggie as it was done really well.



My question is about the box.  There is nothing on the box bottom.  No picture, description, advertisements, company info....nothing, nada, zip.  The box is also smaller than the 5.5 box.  There are staples holding the box bottom together instead of glue or whatever it is companies normally use.  Is this what it is supposed to be?  Or did the seller put together a makeshift box bottom because the original went missing or was destroyed.  The top of the box is what you would normally expect to see...no staples there.



And another quick question while I am thinking about it....is the UK 5th edition the same size as the US 5th (black box w/gold lettering)?  I was hoping to get that one but if it is the same size with the same content I probably won't bother.



Thanks.

I think that the US version of the 5th Print Box Set is larger, so certainly different in at least that respect.



I do not have complete copies of either the UK or the US versions of the box sets, though I do have a copy of the UK 5th Edition rule book, two copies of the UK Dungeon of the Bear Level One, and several digest size UK Solo modules.

All came to me from the UK and they are all smaller versions of the same items sold in the US, just smaller in size.

This is exactly how my UK copy of the same box set is put together.  So I'd say it is legit.

My copiy is similar too. So legit for me as well.

The black box is bigger. I have 2 different prints of this boxed sets (different 5th ed. rulebook and different prints of Buffalo Castle)

You do realise how stupidly rare good condition UK sets are? :)



Yes; genuine as stated.

Actually no.  Although I have been searching Ebay for T&T stuff daily for about the last six months or so and I have never seen one of the UK sets until now.  Wasnt sure what to expect the end price to be and I figured I must have overpaid a bit for it since no one else bid on it.  Sometimes I do enjoy being wrong.  :)

Thanks to everyone for the info.

Completely forgot to bid on this nifty item:




** expired eBay auction **




I dont recognize the winning bidder either.  Anyone here pick it up?

The seller had a couple of nice lots (that I missed - should get my auto searches back online again).  A nice Larry Leeds Combat matrix with instruction sheet and it looks like someone here picked up the Fantasy Factory Overland Encounter cards.  Would be curious to know if they are on cardstock sheets and have a copyright date.

Some very nice lots indeed. But they went for too much money :(
I didn't recognize the winner on the 2 Entertainment concepts lots.

Do you need information about the Binder? I have one copy.

No, thanks, I dont need any info....I just thought it was quite interesting and had no idea that something like that had been made.

Actually there is nothing really interesting in. Only blank sheets (a few) and some Survival kit sheets that contain "Charts needed by the player during the game" and charts for general use. It is like a big screen with charts. Nothing more.

The binder isn't seen at all often and more often than not is empty. Still a good item for someone who /plays/ T&T, IMO. :)
