  1. Wonderful article. Added a link to your page from my post.
  2. Thanks for the edition info! Didn't know about the hardcover.
  3. Following up on my earlier Runequest German edition post, today I've got the French edition of the RQ RPG. And she is a beauty. -Wayne Full post at my photoblog: RUNEQUEST: French language edition (late 80s)
  4. Fully-titled RuneQuest Collector’s Edition: Das Fantasy-Rollenspiel, I had a customer ask about the cover artist of this book. The photos that resulted, I just posted to my game blog. It's a German language edition of RQ3 (I believe), the Avalon Hill version. Full post: RUNEQUEST: German language edition (1991)
  5. Over at my blog, I've added a follow-up to my post on the classic Chaosium Ringworld RPG. The original RW set was packed, so full that material had to be removed for space reasons. And so the Ringworld Companion (1984) was published separately with all the missing information. Together, they represent one of the largest-scale RPG settings ever. Lots of art and data that would appeal to fans of the original scifi fiction series by Larry Niven. -Wayne
  6. Yes good point. I noted the measurements as 15½” x 23¼” (UK), vs. 20″ x 30″ (US), and - like the Game Workshop book - the GW maps is of a glossier paper stock.
  7. I recently edited a blog post from 2016 that I think would be of interest to readers here. I had both US and UK editions of Griffin Mountain in the shop at the time, so I took some side-by-side pics. They are mostly the same, but one edition is definitely better from a longevity standpoint. -Wayne Full post: Griffin Mountain (Runequest, 1981): US and UK editions
  8. Avalon Hill is a great edition too. I believe it has the same map as Elric 2e.
  9. One of those rare instances where I have multiple editions passing through the shop, so I took some side-by-side pics of the old school ELRIC Game, 1977 and 1981 editions. Made for some striking photos. -Wayne Full Post: Elric Board Game 1st & 2nd editions side-by-side (Chaosium: 1977 / 1981)
  10. Classic Runequest RPG books (ca 1980-3) that hit the shelves today! Thought y'all would enjoy some old school cover art. Also updated most of the photos over at my RQ RPG Reference site page this morning.
  11. I was curious how extensive were the changes RQ1 --> RQ2, and they seem substantial. I thought the update might just be shine andpolish.
  12. I just wanted to say I'm grateful for this thread. RQ1 was a bit of a mystery to me, and this helped answer some questions.
  13. I appreciate the behind-the-scenes info here and at the blog, Rick. Thank you.
  14. In response to an email question, I cropped some dice pics out of Call of Cthulhu set reference shots I had saved, post to my Game Gallery blog for posterity. I reckon it might be of interest for folks here. -Wayne DICE from classic Call of Cthulhu box sets: Some reference pics (1981-5)
  15. 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
  16. 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.
  17. 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
  18. 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
  19. 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
  20. 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
  21. 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
  22. More of a test post today, seeing how this forum displays photos. -Wayne
