I've just been reading a Pegasus mag and saw this advertised for the Grimoire and adventures etc.
Is it any good, worth a read or readily available/reasonably priced still?

If you mean the booklets, I have them. I'm trying to decide if I want to keep them or not. They're filled with all kinds of tables, everything from random treasure to weather conditions. They also introduce different classes. I'm sure they could be useful.


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.

That's the stuff I think. From what I can find in a search, there seems to be a Grimoire, several books and a few adventures and then it stops.

Just looked kind of interesting from what I read in the Pegasus.

Think I'll have a search for these if they are worth reading.

Early prints can be worth a bit of money.  However, if you are just looking for a set to read, the books are still in print by Emperor's Choice so you can get a set for relatively cheap.

The harder to find versions are for me the boxed edition of the 3 booklets from the Arduin Trilogy and the one with the "band around" them. I don't know exactly to which prints it corresponds...

Too many prints to keep track of.

i'm a sucker for arduin.

The EmpCho stuff is actually not just good value but also a really good read. The Lands of Arduin is brutally big and actually it's equally quite brutal.

enjoy ...

Are you referring to the World of Khass book?  Isnt it something like 800 pages?  Saw one on Ebay several months ago but got outbid.  Wouldnt mind getting it but shipping would be murder.  That thing must weigh a ton.

I have one of those, and yeah its a thick book.  Didn't they release another one or the big black bible-like one the only version out there?
