  1. Added a combined WBRM / Dragon Pass photo to my blog today. Thought I'd copy it here. 1975 White Bear Red Moon map (top); Dragon Pass map (below). I was a little confused until I noticed that the White Bear Red Moon map had Top as West. [Rotate WBRM counterclockwise and the maps line up.] Both cover the same region, Dragon Pass of course. -Wayne
  2. This is all so interesting. I've been pondering a Late Bronze Age Greece campaign for our house game. I hadn't thought of using the RQ rules set for it, but seems like they'd be a good fit.
  3. Hello all. Had a nice Dragon Pass (1980) set come through the shop. It's a pretty set. Held it aside for a bunch of photos, posted 'em all at the blog. -Wayne
  4. Image attached. I got a set of Six 8½"x11" Cthulhu prints in a lot. Can't figure out what they're from. My guess is that they're add-ons from a Kickstarter. Ring a bell with anybody? -Wayne
  5. Thought this might be of interest to DG folks. I put up an auction (3 days left as of now) of the true 1st edition / 1st print of the Unspeakable Oath. For the longest time, I thought the orange cover Issue 1 was "1st". Not so. If you're more interested in the background and photos, see my blog post about Issue 1. -Wayne
  6. Profiled a nice 1st edition Pendragon set over at my game blog. First time I've really dug into the set. It's impressive as most of y'all no doubt already know. -Wayne
  7. Photo attached is what you speak of I'm guessing. Bottom map with the white artifact on France is from the set posted above. Top map is from another set I have. Ireland (Eire) has that artifact as well. That would be my thought. To my understanding, there was no Pendragon 2nd ed. Edition = Fundamental changes; Printing = minor or no changes. So were there any other differences between the Pendragon 1st printings? Other than the map? -Wayne
  8. More of a test post today, seeing how this forum displays photos. -Wayne
  9. Most of the way reading the book now. The erotica is a bit surprising, I agree. But it's fairly minimal I'd reckon. Late 60s - early 70s novels... erotica is sprinkled throughout them.
  10. I'll confess I'm prone to setting-itis, as the world-building is what captures my imagination. But yeah, it's people that drive the action forward, and I try to run NPCs as their own people, and preserve the players' free agency as well. Tangentially, I'm proud to mention that we just hit a big milestone in our family Twilight 2000 campaign.
  11. Hello. Yep! https://www.waynesbooks.net/product/406876
  12. Very true. I've learned that I need tight parameters for my creativity, and the Ringworld campaign setting. Right now, I'm reading the Ringworld novel (Larry Niven) for the first time since my teens. A fun read. I was concerned after first reading Neutron Star (Known Space short stories), and some of the fiction in there didn't catch my interest. But, back to Ringworld, the book itself is a focused exploration (at least thus far) of Known Space and the Ringworld. The protagonists remind me a lot of a RPG party. So the book itself offers a template for a focused Ringworld campaig
  13. Really anything that gets the party to hop around the Ring works for me. So the players need a motive. And transport, but not transport so good they leave -or- their motive is so compelling that they stay. One thought that comes to mind is running down an interstellar terrorist/political faction that is using the Ring as the Universe's biggest hidey-hole and resource mine. The terrorists are using resources/technology scattered around the Ring making their activities around Known Space particularly dangerous. Adventures include investigation, dealing with natives co-opted by the terrorist
