That's a novel encouragement to run quicker... :?

Thanks, Al! ;)



(Seller even discounted their shipping: total cost ~$9.25, so I'm more than happy to live with those ordered pen marks).

I just got a lot that includes a copy of Of Skulls and Scrapfaggot Green with what I think is an older cover.    8)



    On the cover is a barbarian standing in a town square.



    It says "Judges Guild" and "Approved for Use with DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS" across the top.



    "Collectors Edition of the Gen Con X Tournament Dungeon"



    Bottom left has a large "no. 80"



    Bottom right has a large "$4.50"



    There are 48 pages, including the front and back covers.



    Inside says "Copyright 1977 By Robert J. Blake"



    NO booty list!



    There is an 11x17 detached map section that looks like it was never stitched into the book....probably intended to be loose?  (There is no gap in page numbers)  Small print on the map section says, "Eratta Sheet for 'Of Skulls and Scrapfaggot Green'."



    Back cover shows a ruined blockhouse or guard tower, with a small Judges Guild logo in the center of some clouds at the top center of the picture.



    Possibly 2nd Edition?   :?

SAME LOT:    8)



    Island Book 1



    Campaign hexagon Sub-System



    Picture on cover is black and white with a ship sailing directly toward the viewer.  A moon or sun is rising or setting just above the ship's sail.  A woman in the foreground is either beckoning the viewer to approach or in the act of giving us the bird.



    Campaign Guildlines and Islands On Numbered Hex Grids $2.75



    No product number.



    Copyright 1978



    There is not so much a Booty List as there are two pages (back to back) of advertisments for various JG products, including Dungeon Tac Cards and Character Chronicle Cards (including a pretty good shot of one of the Character Chronicle Cards in case we ever needed to know that those looked like).



    64 numbered pages, including the front and back covers.



    Back cover shows a barbarian dueling with a turbaned figure who wields a scimitar.



    Inside back cover shows a black and white picture that was used as the cover for Wilderlands of High Fantasy.



    Any ideas on edition?  Printing order?    :?

That is the 2nd print (1st through JG) and map sheets taken from Journal W.

The Island Book I is a 1st print.

if their quality are good, both are well worth keeping in the collection, as they are rather uncommon. you see plenty of other prints, just not them in real nice condition.



BTB has just picked up a nice lot for me, which has a 1st island/castle and village in, as well as some really nice other bits - so can't wait to integrate that lot into my collection :D

just been going through stuff, stock-coding etc to stick it up on the website and i came across a certain JG 102 The Caverns of Thracia that i won off Coug a while back and i totally forgot all about it. I got it for about £5-6 if IRC.... nice thing about it though, is that its a first print :D



i also got JG 76 off him too (Dragon Crown) and that was a first print too and that only cost me about £2 :)

Won, recieved, and well now confirms 5 printings of #62, with a 6th being #1999-62. Course someone else probably figured that out with a bid on this auction :wink:

4th is 1981, the 5th 1983 so not sure if there is one between them or they not much more then a year apart. BTW only the cover and Treasure Vault seems different between 4/5..maps, 6th edition statement, etc so far is the same.

:oops:

Hrmm. Seller inconsistency, Al. :(



Had no problem getting the "thumbs up" to bid.

However, the only thing I ended up winning was a "Free City of Haven" ( http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5241278611 ) and shipping is high since his post office seems to think everything larger than a card has to go at Airmail Parcel rate (*1/2 jk*)... :roll:

   Hey, Alan...does that mass include a Map #6 from the CSWE?

You have the cover insert for those? (course the 3rd doesn't come with one being apart of the shop book) And if so any difference in them?

    This should be called a cool Judges Guild NON-acquistion.  The price went even higher than my most inflated snipe.  :cry:

    I believe I did OK on this one...which includes a Fantastic Wilderlands Beyonde, with at least most of the maps.



    And, "no comment" is a comment, Harami.   8)   I'll keep sniping at those Fencert map packs until I get one or until the supply runs out.   Terry is posting them one at a time.  The fact that he bothered to shrinkwrap the whole thing tells me he has at least a few more.  I will keep loading up and trying until the big dogs have found other bones to gnaw.     :wink:
