About a week ago, TheHistorian was looking for a Second Edition, Stormbringer box set and, after exchanging a few pms, we sorted out the known printings of the  first and second edition box sets.

I've only listed the printings and editions which have full documentation.  As we know, Chaosium is  very hard to pin down, so please feel free to add to the mix, and make any corrections you see fit.

My thanks to TheHistorian for all his help.

Best.

Even a stopped clock tells the right time twice a day, and for once I'm inclined to believe...we are indeed drifting into the arena of the unwell.

In other Chaosium news, they've been digging into their catalog to release some pdfs.  Mostly Cthulhu of course, but I see All The World's Monsters 1-3 are now up:

Areas of interest/knowledge: Harn, Pendragon, WFRP, Ars Magica, anything BRP based, CoC, Runequest

Planning: BRP/Harn

That's the first time I've been tempted to hit a PDF from Chaosium.  But, at $6.95 per file I'll wait until there's a sale or a bundled product or something more in the reasonable ballpark.

Still...nice additions to the PDF line for Chaosium!

There's usually a 30% off sale in October.

I'll probably wait for that or something better...

In my opinion, sellers generally start out with their dream price for a PDF and then mark down the price to reality as they realize that "some sales" generate more profits than "no sales."
