Yeah, quite a lot of nice stuff there Mars.  I've never seen that version of Catapult Run.

It is the one I am looking for :)

And I didn't know that the one that Mars pictured exists! Thanks for the scan!

I think I've only seen that other neon-looking cover for that, too. If I'm remembering correctly, Catapult Run has a bunch of art inside the module that looks like it was kind of ripped off. Not copy and pasted, but more like some artist's re-do's of work from various D&D modules and Hildebrandt illustrations.

Dude; you know 'zines of any ilk don't count, ever since Bill reduced those to floor-covering status. ;)

(Makes for extremely RPG-literate spiders, though, and boy does having eight limbs help for looking up books when rolling dice...).

Hmm... could do with a larger floor, sorry. :lol:

Nice pics; thanks, Mark, and y'all. :)

i apologize if the zeal with which i explain why i collect what i have chosen to collect has come across as dismissive of everything else. nothing could be further from the truth. i'm very glad that others are preserving all aspects of our hobby...

No probs, Bill: you did see the ";)", I trust. Couldn't really add that much to the previous posts without digging around (& missing many of those posted, too) and thought I'd get in there before Brette did the same on the 'zines since Mark opened Pandora's box with those Abysses.
*nods* Glad that people are preserving even if that's still very much ad-hoc and an expensive business, unfortunately.

Hmm... was a somewhat random selection, but yes, Ian; row 12 #1 & row row 3 #13 by my counting.

Pipswich wrote:Since Bill isn't bidding, I will buy the lot of 'em. LOL, great pic!

Wish I'd planned that a bit better but had been at the back of my mind to go with some other pics taken in the past.
Heh; thanks... Steven (red_bus) has dibs on the O&Ws he doesn't have already, though, and since he picked up a relative bargain on #1 vs. the 1,500 euros one of those sold for - albeit double-signed - at a charity auction a number of years back he's on a roll there.

===
Calling more, please (whatever the RPG content): a rather fun diversion, even for those who should be busy... :)

I'm trying to draw out all of my digest sized books. Maybe I can do it over the weekend. Nothing like the good stuff seen so far, but maybe some stuff not yet seen...

Not to match the others for quantity or obscurity, but I'm pretty pleased to have finished off my Dungeon Master Kits 1, 2, & 3 :)

Nice David. :!:
All three of them are items I covet, but will likely never have.

I do get around a bit, but no they came from regular-type sales  (with help courtesy of the federal govt's forced-savings plan ;))

Thanks guys :)

I typically store my books bagged and in magazine slipcases to help protect them from shelf wear.  I've been trying to find some sort of slip case that is digest size, but haven't had any luck.  I can't help but wonder what some of you all use for your digest?

But even if you found digest-sized slip covers, you'd just have to take a pair of scissors to the backer-boards to make them fit to the size of the slip cover. I just stick with the regular sized slip covers and backer boards.

I find most digest-sized publications will fit into the regular archival bags sideways. Can't use a board, though.
