Sold for $2100 at the charity auction at NTRPG!


RPG’s, D&D in particular has had a major influence in my life. It’s bonded me together with life long friends...it’s that bond in life not just as friends, but in our jokes, our mannerisms, and what we find funny. Invincible Overlord

I finally picked up a copy of Haalkitaine over the weekend, and am looking forward to digging into it further.  Thanks for the tip, Bill!---it'll certainly feature in my upcoming blog post on using Non-TSR cities sourcebooks in the World of Greyhawk.  

Also:  in case you (or other folks) weren't aware, Haalkitaine is being revised and expanded by Terry Amthor.  Updates on the ICE boards @ ICE News and Discussion with the Sept 2019 news being:

Shadow World

We are still awaiting the RMSS stats for Terry's mini-adventure. Terry is continuing with his work on Haalkitaine, and is currently focused on the new adventures for the enhanced edition. On the side, he is scribbling notes for Emer IV.

Priest-King of Shade is also in the editing queue.

No Frank, his post was from 2013. I was the 2nd high bidder. I rue the loss still. Sigh.

I have a feeling you'll be first for it someday, Allan.
I don't have a top 5 anymore, since I'm out of collecting, but there are several things I used to have that I would love to USE now. Some of them I never got a chance to read through, like Beasts, Men and Gods.

So would I, aia. It's one of the ones I cut loose a while back. I've never been much of a hoarder, especially when it comes to rare RPG stuff. I keep things I can use, but rare items are different. I prefer to have them for a little while and then pass them on, much like girlfriends when I was younger. If I hadn't, I would have felt like one of those guys who buys a Rembrandt and keeps it locked away in a private room for personal viewing only, not because he is impressed by the art, but because it is unique and he takes pleasure in being the only person to own it.
There's a famous character who did the same thing: Gollum. And we all know how THAT turned out.......... I do have a few items, but they are earmarked to be moved on eventually.
So here's a question: I just finished reading Dance of Demons by Gygax for the 1,300th time, and the last pages mention Epic of Yarth: Necropolis by New Infinities. Does anyone happen to have it? I don't recall ever seeing it.

Actually, it appears that Billy produced a version of it subsequently (BMG). If I knew it was the same as the original I'd probably buy it. If it is a  3E+ conversion, I cannot come within 30' of it without suffering 1-10 damage per round of exposure.......

After helping to control the goblin population of the Misty Mountains for centuries (by eating them), Gollum saved Middle-earth when Frodo hesitated by taking the ring & jumping into the fire. Hoarders don't get enough credit.

I have the reprint of the second edition... Would you consider to find a trade? (Useless to say, i need to add other items to offset the deal...)
