Hey King,

Thanks for the reply. I didn't realize that this was the first year.
I guess I got confused with Circus Maximus which I think has run more than once at NTRPG Con.

If it is going to be a yearly game that's one that I would sign up for. :)
Looked like an absolute blast and the models for the walls that Allan made, Wow! :)

Best regards,
Ronald

I am quite sure that Aliens and Circus Maximus will be available at the NTRPGCon as long as attendees interest stays at a high level.

In fact for 2012 Aliens will have a specifically assigned table and Allan's wonderful setup will be able to stay in place for the entire con...

IIIRC: Circus Maximus was played at the NTRPGCon last year for the first time.
This season was the 1st year it was turned into an actual tournament.

Just to clarify, Ronald:  I bought that set lock, stock, and barrel:  I didn't build it---would that I had such skills :D (although I am going to take a crack at making a matching Reactor Room board over the next year or so).

Mhmm... not so well advertised in the US but don't underestimate the sales reach in the UK at that time vs. the US - very rapid growth in 1977/78 and not just for the main newsstand 'zine but also for sales during conventions: the GW Games Day had a higher attendance than GenCon in 1978, for example.

Bifrost vol. 1 had a lengthy, fairly positive review from Don Turnbull(!) and was distributed by both Esdevium and Games Workshop. As preempted by Don, the strange phased release schedule made things a bit more problematic for the later volumes even without publisher issues.

I love auctions in which photos are taken on top of the washing machine. No kidding, I see that a lot.



Good lot!

Probably stored near the washing machine as well (which looks to be in a basement).  Rusty staples, smell of mildew/mold, water warping.  Oh yeah...a collectors dream.  :roll:

Half-toad dice bags.   Eeewww.

Is this Disgusting Things You Can Do With Animals Day on the Acaeum?  It turns my stomach more than the discussion of head-cheese in OT Chit-Chat.

Think the front legs still have the bones in them?


Shanghai fun & friends!

Not very pretty at all.    :pukel:



One wonders...who looks at a dead toad and says,:



"Hey, Earl, that there dead critter'd make a real nice dice bag.  Ah bet ya ah could sell that there toad fer fifteen bucks if'n ah tanned 'im and stuffed 'im real nice!"



"Good idea, Jed Floyd, that'd certain fer sure be worth twenty five hours of yer time!"

I'm not sure which one is worse: the frog torso or the kangaroo nutsacks.

Two of those 100-sided dice would fit quite nicely into a kangaroo nutsack dicebag.
