I remember buying 10 copies of this about four years ago....

But I don't know whether I received them and then misplaced them, or whether I never got them at all. What I do know is, if I did receive them I'd have had a flick through. So I'm wondering if someone out there who bought a copy when he was selling them cheap could PM me some images of the internal pages. Just a few of the more memorable spreads would clear up whether I've flicked through the product (and need to go hunting) or whether I don't have them at all.

If they turn up, please let me know, I'd be interested in a copy :)

I remember buying tem of them. The guy was selling them at $4.99 or maybe $7.99. I don't recall. Also, the cover is a light tan brown or a light teracotta colour. At least it was in the original printing he was selling. The only way I'll know for sure is if I can jog my memory about the inside. It's not like me to miss something I bought without giving it a chase, but if I'd PM'd him and worked out a deal for 10 off eBay, I may have let it slip and he may have not shipped them.

I have 1 (maybe 2) of these - forget if the 2nd copy got sold already or not.  But I don't think the cover was tan - just white but I think it was on cardstock.  I will see if I can dig it out.

The cover is white in my copy. It is signed and numbered (26/50). Cover is like TSR module, on cardstock and maps in the inside cover. Cover and booklet both state First Edition, First Printing.
I don't know more about printing since I got it second hand from Le Rahib.

Here is some pics

Well, the interior artwork and layoud do not ring any bells with me. I don't think I've flicked through that, so I'm guessing the Author stiffed me out of my 10 copies when I ordered them. Ho hum. You live and learn I should have been more on the ball at the time.

argyrebasin is around on the forums but he is not the author.  The author was selling these a couple of years ago for relatively cheap as Ian mentioned.

I remember buying 1 and then think I received a second copy from the author in the mail as a Christmas present.  I'm pretty sure I sold the second copy (maybe to Le Rahib).

In digging for other stuff, I found my two copies of this.  Neither are signed - not sure I knew that was an option.  I remember buying one copy and then him sending me another one for Christmas.

I would also be interested in obtaining a copy, or contacting the Author.
DavidC if you do contact him, please let me know?

Hi folks, afaik, when i bought my copy he wrote me it was the last one he had...
prb you'd ask him a new print run.

@Mark: mine is not signed as well! But i remember he wrote me that the print run was 50 copies!
