I have had two copies of the 1st print pass through my hands, neither came with dice. Never had a 2nd printing though. Never really felt like one.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . gummy bears.

Mars is right, I have owned about a half dozen copies over the last 20 years, none have had dice.

EDIT:  I apologize, this was a 1st print, I have owned exactly one and it was given to me by the author(s) for helping to auction off some of their stuff on the old RPG marketplace on Usenet.  It didn't have dice, either.
while their products are not highly thought of (in fact was it you badmike who said not to put all their products together because it would create a huge vortex of suck ? or words to that effect), they were intelligent and fun guys to game with. every year they put on huge larps with their extended gaming group. they run thoughtful, imaginative frp games that emphasize actual roleplaying over power mechanics. it's just too bad their products aren't better (i couldn't personally say, i've never taken any of their modules out of the shrink).

It might have been me that said that. Their stuff is pretty bad (and the "artwork" is worse). They still hold the yearly LARPathon in a local hotel (I think it might actually be over the MD border), called "Relaxicon". I only attended once--not my scene. They are nice guys, though.

The only game I've ever actually played with John C. was Magic: the Gathering, believe it or not, and only once. It was a booster draft, and we ended up being the last two players left, and then he whooped my ass :).

While their products are pretty bad (the value to usefulness ration may be more out of whack with these than any other 3rd party release during the time period), my dealings with the gentlemen themselves have always been good.

Yes. Spot on. I was going on Heroic Worlds and must be wrong. I did think it strange that such a supplement would have dice.

Hey everyone,



I think there was someone here interested in the Hackmaster Temple of Existential Evil?

Those are really hard to find. I collect Midgard for a while, and these are the two items I am missing. Sought after, yes, indeed (not only by me but, I guess, by all German collectors.

Hey everyone,



Seller has some items that I am not familiar with, but maybe of interest to some people here.

Was this really produced by TSR in 1985?



Best regards,

Hi Ronald,



this is one of the booklets included in the Conan boxed set (from TSR of course).
