First stop this time was the Fantasy Flight Games booth to see if they had some other books this time around and they did. I again picked up 3 Legends & Lairs hardcovers for about 6.5 euro each. Then I stumbled upon a booth which had “Discounts” in big letters on a plaque. Sure enough they had some RPG material with 3 euro bins so I picked up a Pathfinder Adventure path module, a Birthright module, a D20 module, and a module I didn’t recognize.

The module was called Quest of the Ancients – Faerie Tales and produced by Unicorn Game Publications. A quick search on the collector’s forum of Tome of Treasures showed that there’s apparently 4 modules of this publisher which were produced at the end of the 80ies, beginning of the 90ies. As if I don’t have enough to collect already…

After that I headed over to Malcolm’s booth for a chat and some more D&D purchases. One of which is my first ever Mono module. And then there was a booth which had a whole lot of RPG material in German. And sure enough, there they were. 20 German shrinkwrapped D&D modules for a bargain price of 3.5 euro each. I couldn’t leave those of course.

That pretty much concluded my purchases at Spiel this year. I considered buying a Larry Elmore print at Larry’s booth but that would have driven me beyond my budget so I decided against it.

Funny story at Larry’s booth : A German fan walks over and asks : “Excuse me, are you really Larry Elmore ?” The reply : “Unfortunately yes.”
