I wouldn't be surprised if he pops up after Christmas. He's got that Kobald Hall you're after, Alan.


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

Okay WoW .. never in a million years did I ever think I would see something like this.

Thank you for the somewhat positive review .. I think .. but anyway.

Okay, a little background.  I wrote this as a 7 part mini-campaign for D&D Tournaments at a Gaming convention called "WarZone" back in the late 80's and early 90's.  Each Convention (5 per year around the state of Florida) was a 24 hr slug fest (Saturday 9am ~ Sunday 9am). It all started with 6 players and in 3 years became an 18-24 player massive campaign.  The original 6 players each had henchmen and underlings that traveled with them on each leg of the journey.

After the first couple years of doing it I kept getting players asking me if they could buy the Campaign set.  I got with some friends and we took all my notes and changes, put it in printable form, took it down to KINKO's and had 50 copies printed out. I did submit it to TSR and they offered to buy it for .03 a word, no royalties, no contract for further modules.  The only positive that came out of it was that they did offer me a position on the "Living City" circuit as a "certified" tournament DM.  I did do this for 4 years until the TSR internal conflict near destroyed the company, and Living City was cancelled. TSR was infamous for "acquiring" concept material and giving NO credit to the original authors.  

I never compiled and printed the rest of the series, even though I still have them here in raw typed form RD2 - RD5.  As TSR was failing and the PC generation was exploding with online gaming the effort vs reward was not compelling. Life, marriage, kids , ect ..here near 20 years later my last 2 Copies sit on the book shelf.

Thank you for your time.

Thanks for popping on!  There exists a market for old school material now, you should print up another 50 copies and give it a go, you might be surprised.  Take pre-orders if you aren't sure how many you would sell.

i'm assuming that you are planning on keeping your two remaining originals. but if you are thinking of selling either of them, i too would be very interested in buying one.

Thanks for posting, I hope you consider reviving the project :)

Hello N. Alan,

I would be interested in at least one copy, if not two (2) copies, predicated on price point of course ;-)

Thanks in Advance - Paul

Hi,

Further to your PM, there is a merket (and an established tradition now maybe) for writers past and present to offer up xeroxed copies of their campaign material or adventure with a cover sheet signed and numbered. Usually limited to 50 or 75 copies, and selling for anywhere between $20 and $40 a copy plus shipping. what you do if you want to gown that route is you lstart a list (in this thread) if buyers and the numbers of copies they want, and update it as people decla their interest.

If you're up for that, put me down for a copy of whatever you're offering.


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