Hi Guys,

I've just received this from Oz.
Does anyone know anything about it? Particularily if you're from down under.

Apparently they were given to Games Workshop staff at Christmas. Its a sample CD with early White Dwarf games and scenarios on it, and an interview with Ian Livingstone (audio only).

Does anyone know any UK staff or if there's a CD 2?


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

I know the ex-US editor for WD.  He was laid off around Christmas, but I think he may have an idea.

Hi All.

Some updated information from a variety of sources.

I e-mailed GW(UK) and they replied that they believe the CD pictured above is an inhouse sample produced during the developement of a product that was scheduled for release, but cancelled on legal grounds. The e-mail was posted over on Dragonsfoot.com.

The final product was scheduled for release at a number of conventions this year, but only actually went into production in Australia, and were recalled. The final product was on DVD (I know someone who has some stock).

The CD I have contains a variety of folders (presumably the front end of whatever was going to be used to present the product). It also contains White Dwarf Issues 1 through 30, Best of Articles 1 and 2 and Best of Scenarios 1 and 2.

Thanks for the additional info, Ian.  Do you have a price from Ozbox for the CDs?
