i have also never seen one on ebay. if there was, i can guarantee you that it would have been very heavily stomped on by me at least....not to mention about at least a dozen others.

It's one of the few items I don't have (the ever elusive t-shirt, button and pen not being counted) and have never seen come up for auction.  I too would be all over it.

I'm after Trek-80, though doubt I'll ever see it on Ebay. Course a shirt/jacket/etc would be nice.

i doubt that item will ever be seen. what do you think is the likelihood of any of them surviving until today? what kinda production level was there? can't have been that many....

I think it will show up sometime.  A few months ago I did a search for some of Bob Liddill (Rider Games, Pandora's Treasures and The Armory) and saw his game from 1979 sold on Ebay for $4.  There are a number of vintage computer game collectors out there though.

I do wonder a bit if it ended up being sold by Judges Guild or not though.  It is possible that they created it and then sold it to another computer game company to distribute.

EDIT:  There is a fair bit of stuff out there on the game.  Here is a review from 1980 which says you can order it from Processor Technology Group:

Picked one up in a mixed eBay lot within the past year. Unexpected lil' bonus. :)
That's one /card/, IIRC, not one /set/... *picks Shane up off the ground*. Hey, you OK?

For those who have Starships & Spacecraft unopened of course :wink:

Could you check Starships & Spacecraft and any copies and see if any maps have an address and yet 2nd printing cover.

Thanks,
ShaneG.

Shane...

I'm presuming that the pdf udates of these publications do not make the list?

I like this list as a separate file from the history of Judges Guild.

Only PDF acknowledged is Pegasus 15 since there is no print version of it. If something else comes along that is only PDF then I'd include it, but otherwise I'm not including them in any list or history.

Seen this in Pegasus 8 as something that was never released:

Golden Sands of Death by Edward R. G. Mortimer, Joseph Weingaad, and Paul W. Vinton: Adventure in the Desert lands (Campaign Map 7), politic, history, the forms of the Holy Cities; battle the proud nomads, the Golden Lions, temple-fortress, wilderness.

Google turns up nothing, but wondering if this exists or has been lost as other things for Judges Guild has been.

You could probably locate and ask Edward R. G. Mortimer.  

His name appears in quite a few places on Google.  One of his credits was the Necromancer Wilderlands of High Fantasy.

*additional*

Wait...I see that he was the writer of a number of Judges Guild products and he was an editor of Pegasus...presuming that "The Imperial Pegasus #8" is the same as Pegasus #8

So...I imagine you already know about him.

Yeah, but I don't think he has any contact information out there. Course I have gotten lucky a couple times finding people.

All you have to do is ask ...

[email protected]

I doubt this is his primary address or how often he checks it ... so please use with discretion.

According to Mobygames.com Edward R.G. Mortimer had Writing/Dialogue/Story credit on a Sierra On-Line game called Arcanum: Of Steamworks & Magick Obscura in 2001.
MobyGames - Edward R. G. Mortimer

If you contact Sierra they might be able to forward a message plus they have forums on their North America site (but not the UK).

My bad ... old information that I looked up incorrectly.  I found his correct e-mail address and asked him myself.

-----

From Ed Mortimer himself ...

Ah, the memories . . . I have a bad memory, and things come to me slowly, but at first blush I do remember working on this with Joe & Paul. I probably still have the papers in the bottom of a box somewhere. If I remember rightly, we got pretty far -- most of it written, maps & illustrations started, layout begun or almost begun . . . Has anyone heard from Joe or Paul? Maybe trying to connect with them will prove fruitful -- it would be their first publication, and that's always special. At the least, they'd remember more and quicker than I . . . but I'll continue to ponder . . . thanks for the memories!

Wow, things are NICE over here in JG land.   :D

Anyway, maybe you guys have already discussed this, but I'm too damned lazy to search.  Does anyone know if there were different printings of Booklet I?  I've got 3 copies, and two of them have the same mustard colored cover, but the third is slightly lighter in color.  I can't find any differences in content or format, though.

Thanks!

Yeah and we shall keep it that way :wink: Bloody TSR bullies are not welcome! 8)

Okay, obviously I'm going to ask for a scan/photo of the different one (say front and back. Second I'll say there is at least 2 printings for Booklet I (see here: Booklet I ) but doubt it is that lighter :D So I'm thinking fading, but need pic.

Now back to Happy Happy, Joy Joy
