Misprinted Manual of Puissant Skill at Arms:  This rare tome has a significant printing flaw in that it is printed backwards and upside-down.  Add 2d8x100gp value to that listed for the volume, but the item removes one level of Fighting Ability if completed.  :twisted:

Are you absolutely certain that they are sorted chronologically?  Maybe they have subtle differences in the printings that are not apparent from the cover.  And condition . . . are they sorted by condition as well?

Terrible thing if you took a book out and replaced it in the wrong location.  They would be mis-sorted . . . and how would you know?  Tsk, tsk tsk.

:D

Wrong forum for this, because this is "Non TSR", but my OCE D&D rules have some blurred sentances in book 3, in the Temple of the Frog.

Is that normal?

I think I might separate the pages from one of my Deities and glue them back in upside down. Who would know the difference?

Damn . . . this Amazon customer did not appreciate the rarity of his item.  I gave him a full refund and will pay return postage on it:

Hello. 14 of the 61 pages in the module are missing: pgs. 17-24, and  41-48. It seems that pgs. 9-16 had reprinted on 17-24, and 49-56 had reprinted on 41-48. Since it would be impossible to run the module without the missing pages, I would like a refund or a non-defective module. Thank you.

:oops:

Anyone want to buy a misprinted Dawn of the Overmind?   :P

About half the Dawn of the Overminds I've come across have that flaw (don't know about the SW copies as I don't open them!). Probably should command a higher price than it does in "un-misprinted" condition due to scarcity.

Would have been hilarious had it been a MM or DMG.   :D


Let mirth prevail!
