I made an interesting find a garage sale last week. I was headed home from the supermarket when I saw a garage sale that looked like it had some old D&D stuff. Despite having milk in the car I stopped. I was right, I had seen a badly water-damaged AD&D 1e Monster Manual II. I asked if they had anything else and they pulled out a box with about 15 old modules in it and asked a dollar a piece for them. I offered them ten dollars for the lot (all the cash I had on me) and they snapped it up. While all of these modules were in definitely "used" condition, all but one turned out to be complete and quite usable. Collectors would turn up their noses, but they are great playing copies.
A2 Secret of the Slavers Stockade
A3 Assault of the Aerie of the Slave Lords
C1 The Hidden Shrine of Tomoachan
D1 Descent Into the Depths of the Earth
D2 Shrine of the Kuo-Toa
DL1 Dragons of Despair
DL3 Dragons of Hope
G1-2-3 Against the Giants
I1 Dwellers of the Forbidden City
S1 Tomb of Horrors
S2 White Plume Mountain
S3 Expedition to the Barrier Peaks
S4 The Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth
T1 The Village of Hommlet
The incomplete/unusable module was a copy of B1 In Search of the Unknown which had been drawn on with crayons and cut up.
There was nothing here that I don't already have so see have been set aside for giveaways. In fact, I had a drawing for five of these modules Sunday (from Retro-Roleplaying Cancer Fund donors who donated for the Microlite81 project my Sunday game last weekend. The winners were:
Anonymous Donor -- DL1 Dragons of Despair
Anonymous Donor -- DL3 Dragons of Hope
Nancy S. -- G1-2-3 Against the Giants

I'll start an actual fund drive to give the other ten modules and a few other goodies from my stuff away soon. However, any donations to the Retro-Roleplaying Cancer Fund after this post is published with be eligible for this upcoming giveaway (1 chance per $10 donated, as usual).
