Just curious about La Vivandiere (Palikar Publications, 1974) volume I, #3 and 4 as I believe these contain some interesting historical significance to the evolution/creation of D&D, written by EGG.

#3 seems to have an article called "Game Theory" and #4 has one called "Fantasy Wargaming and the Influence of J.R.R. Tolkien."

Anyone have these to confirm? Are they interesting, worth trying to track down, and if so, what would be the amount they'd be, roughly, worth?

Going rate was closer to $75-100 for those that were well advertised.

Thanks, faro. Definitely seems to be an important piece of RPG history, for those into that kind of thing. Maybe some lucky lifetime, I'll stumble upon a copy.

I od'nt have a copy of #3, but #4's Tolkien article was written by Gary.  Was the piece in #3 also written by Gary?

That I can't say with authority, but the source I found out about this indicated that was the case. If someone could confirm, that could be very enlightening...
