Small issue related to the 2 handouts present in the module:

i recently bought a copy of Caliban with one sheet (PC) made with the same paper of the cover, hence perfectly in line with the product, but the 2nd sheet (monsters) is made on a pale yellowish cardboard more thin and glossy than the first handout and the cover. Is that normal?

My doubt is related to the fact that another copy of Arduin Dungeon (the AD#4) has both handout made with the same paper, which is the one of the cover.

thanks and ciaooo

Mine doesn't have the sheets. Maybe Mars can help.

I'm not sure about this one. I don't own any of the Arduin Dungeon modules. I think this is one area that does need some research though. I have seen a couple different covers and am sure there are ones with the same cover and different catalog pages as well. I wasn't aware they came with separate handout sheets though. Often, they are missing the artifact cards but again, I don't have a good sense of which cards came with each module either.

really?!?!? shocked

i thought that Arduin stuff is for excellence the best nonTSR line of products... and since you're one the brightest collector/sage of this kind of stuff i was pretty sure you had a reply...

now things are getting tricky... how can i retrieve smtg useful for a comparison?

I'll post mine for comparative purposes. Mine is a later printing, only evidenced by the final page which bears a copyright of 1980 for the image. Also, the address for Grimoire Games is different. You'll also notice the cover is very, very different. Of course, so you can see the cards, I'll take them out...

Hi all. I am new to the forum. I've been playing RPGs since 1976 and have been collecting in earnest since 2004. My primary focus has been on Judges Guild. I have been bitten by the Old School Renaissance bug. I recently acquired a large collection of Dave Hargrave/Grimoire Games Arduin material in very good condition. I'm trying to identify how complete the items are, matching up the components and identifying printings.

Thanks to Serleran for identifying the card sheets that go with Caliban.

Off to the next thread to post some questions...

Seriously?! Try collecting things you actually interacted with. Am I the only one here who actually had this module? FTR *both* sheets are made from the exact same card stock as the cover. If you have a sheet printed on crappy paper, it's because someone sold you counterfeit nonsense.

This was my favorite module eva. Bought it with my allowance ($Cool the day it came in the shop in '78. We used to call it "Instant Death Squared".

And yes, your copy of Arduin Grimoire vol. #1 with the boobs covered up is a fake too.
