This was a GameMaster Publication (GM5) It is a 40 page AD&D adventure. I am guessing it is before Sargent was employed by TSR. (When did he get hired at Games Workshop?) It has a tear in the top left and bottom left corner of the binding and has a small dog ear on the upper right corner.

Anyone own this?

Yes. They come up once in a while, primarily in the UK. The earlier ones in that series command a higher price. Not too long ago near minty-fresh ones were sold. I think it was burntwire?

Here's the complete series if anyone is interested:

GM1 A Flight Of Eagles
GM2 Find The Lady       
GM3 In Search Of New Gods
GM4 The Awakening       
GM5 Rod Of Seraillan

They are odd-sized modules so don't expect them to fit into a conventional bag. They are also rather good, at least in my opinion.

I think its a good module and an interesting stepping stone in Carl Sargents design career.

I own the other issues as well, but I felt this one may have some special interest for Sargent fans. Fans who are often Greyhawk fans or Warhammer RPG fans.

But hey I own the Shroud of Madness, I like Sargents stuff.

Me too.  It's decent, though not as well-written as Sargent's later work.

I have one too (I have all 1-5)

And I was a player character in it about 17 years ago.

Welcome to Tesco.net
might be of some use in locating the Rod.

Now that is a bit of a surprise.  I wonder if they have rules for Kaissa (Gorean Chess) in there.  :lol:

Malcolm, are GM1 and GM2 really that much more valuable than 3,4 and 5?

GM1 has been going for about $25-30 lately. GM2 for about half that. GM3-5 you can pock up for about $5 a piece.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.
