Here's what I'd like to see:

Calypso Games
* Evil-Colored Green (1986)
* The Temple of Cheelaka (1986)
* Society of the Green (1987)

Draken Games
* Quests for Adventurers

Dungeon Quest Publications
* Six Gems of Xantree (1989)
* Domain of Xantree (1989)
* A Book of Wonderful Toys (1989)
* Castle Out of Time

Horizon International Inc
* Witchery in Elcaro (1983)
* Island Campaign

Labyrinth Games
* The Innliv River Valley (1983)

Mallema Press
* Critter Fantastical (1977)

MMI
* Fortress Magoloth (1984)
* The Guardian (1984)

Wizard Guild Games
The Age of Sail Series
Medium Merchantship (1982)
Heavy Merchantship (1982)
* Medium Warship (1982)
* Heavy Warship (1982)

Any headway on these would be great.  I had a bit of progress on Wizard Guild Games but forget what it is since my research documentation is lacking.

Anyone have the Piracy of Su Fang Choi?  I've always been curious about that one.

I think I had some of that a couple of weeks ago at Hunan Palace.  A bit too spicy for me.  :wink:

I haven't heard of any of these (not surprised though).  I don't recall ever seeing listings for these in Heroic Worlds and Afterglow2 doesnt list them either so they must be godawful rare.  Where do you even find advertisements for these games?  Fanzines?  Small regional convention dealer lists?

I tracked down and contacted one of the authors about that one - I'm curious too.  However, I never heard back after the initial response.  The impression I got was that it was a case where this was something the author did in high school, and currently has no interest in gaming now.  He said he might still have a copy around but after a couple of follow up emails with no response, I stopped pursuing it.

like mars i also need the items from the following companies: calypso games, horizon international, mallema press & MMI. and no, i've never seen any of these items either; i've just seen them listed in heroic worlds. i do have the other items on mars list. btw the labyrinth games item is spelled Imliv River Valley (i'm sure it was just a typo on mars part, but for those of you without a copy of heroic worlds, i thought you might wasnt to know...). the item i'm most looking for is a 1st print tunnels & trolls, but there are over 100 other things i'm  looking for as well.

There's lots of stuff not listed in Heroic Worlds too - I'm sure I have a list somewhere.

I think you were supposed to send us a list of what you had and what you needed so we could add things you had maybe missed;)

Incredibly amateurish artwork just makes me even more interested in it.  It's probably a hoot to read, and perhaps a bit spicy to eat...  :wink:
