Hey guys, I've got a one-of-a-kind item here!   :)

The World of Sarland

Ok, actually, it is 117 pages of typed material that someone sent me in a "lot" I won.  It contains various adventures and background material for "Sarland" - the many adventures are set in different locales.  The guy who sold me the lot said his friend submitted it to TSR and they accepted it, but nothing was ever done with it (1987).

Anyway . . . it is all kept in a blue folder and I just don't have room . . . I would hate to have to throw it out . . .

I will pay shipping in the U.S. to anyone who wants it . . .  just PM me and let me know.  Or post here.

If no one wants it . . .   :cry:

Yes, me too . . . umm . . . I wouldn't actually throw it away - that was just for "dramatic" effect.  Still, I thought someone who is more interested in "nostalgic" things might want it.

Jeez. . . I've still got boxes of my own spiral notebooks and handwritten modules lying about.  :)

Trouble with that kinda thing (for myself, anyhow) is the guilt feeling at just having it lying around, not used or published.
(Is bad enough with Steve Marsh's papers, and that's not even scenario material).

*smiles*. Know that feeling, too!

At least those are easier to reconcile/keep a hold of/not feel such guilt about, on personal grounds.
(Settle down with a few cans and browse, more like...).

If it's a unique manuscript, I'd be happy to bid on it on eBay (or buy it privately). It would go nicely with my Revenaunt, especially if its submission quality, typed and mapped.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . minestrone soup.

Okay, I guess I didn't expect such interest . . . I will list it on ebay overnight with a 99 cent opening bid - so if it has any value, it can be determined by you all.

You should know what ppl are like around here, by now! 8)

And not often anyone dangles unpublished work with a TSR cachet as a total freebie, regardless of actual content. ;)

(Hopefully that preamble should keep the $ figure relatively sane. *g*).

*watches*

Hrrmm. Why doesn't that feel like a strangely "unequal" scenario to me, Ian? ;) :D

I thought killjoy expressed interest in this one?  Why not send it to him?  Also, if I had seen it sooner, I would have been willing to pay for shipping.  I have this annoying tendency to collect game worlds.

Actually, MrFilthyIke got a PM to me first and I said he could have it . . . he has been very understanding and I will be sending him some Freebies to make up for recalling the offer.

Yeah, luckily the first person who answered is not a die hard collector  :P

This is something really meant for eBay to resolve :)

Is that frantic programming of a sniper engine I hear in the background, David?

Okay, I have listed it - hope it gets to a good home! It is only a 3 day auction, but I imagine that anyone interested has already seen (or will soon read) this thread.

Feel free to ask any questions.
