Just obtained my copy.  It says it comes with dice.  Mine did not.  Does anyone have a pic of the dice?  Would like to see what the dice looked like so that I can buy as close to the type of original dice as possible.  It may not be "original" but then it would be complete.

Was able to find a pic on RPG Geek.  Looks like of the old (early 80's)plastic dice.  Should not be to hard to find.

Congratulations Martin.  I think you will find it an interesting read.  :D

I've only had time to leaf through it quickly, the art work is quite good.  What I like about is that the box is heavy duty.  No way you're going to crease the box or do any other kind of damage to it just by handling it.

And it is certainly one of the best packaging ever for a RPG. Wonderfull item.

I am still looking for the sole released supplement... if someone has an extra copy :)

I contacted the author, 3-4 years ago, and he told me that he could has some copies in stock. I said "ok, please, I'd like to buy one". I am still waiting for his reply...

Congrats Martin!  I think you got a nice set there, I'm hoping to get one myself one day (Sorry to bump your bid, that was me the under-bidder  :oops:  )


I draw the line at collecting... D&D Towels.

I think a lot of us contacted him at the same time;).. with the same results.. only bit of info I got.. "The other part of this system that was released was a photo-copied supplement that went into the rules. It was copied on blue paper. The New Rules went out of business. Yes I have a copy. there was talk of other supplements, but they never got off the ground. "

Brette:)

I think it was posted in Interesting Items... I can't imagine what the seller was thinking ending the auction Christmas morning... can't be ideal.  I'm glad it's going to a good home :)



When & where was the game published?
