Re: (TFT) Gamelords

Whatever I find I shall post.

I am primarily curious as to whether or not there were any additional
L.B.T.M. materials upcoming, along with any pertaining to Underearth,
Elyntia, etc.

Here is what is known:

* The Haven modules "City of the Sacred Flame" and "In the Tyrant's Desmine"
were originally intended to be "Soldier City: Shaylle" and "Intrigue in
Plaize". Indeed, if you read them, something of the original TFT:LBTM
material shows through. One of my backburner projects is to convert these
back to the original TFT format. Were I able to purloin a draft manuscript
pre-change to Haven, that would be remarkably wonderful.. :-)
* The nature of LBTM strongly suggests that modules were forthcoming on
Muipoco and Soukhor, which would include stuff on their capitols, one would
suppose. I would be most curious as to any insights in the direction they
were going with those.
* There was also casual mention of a module detailing Trevalia in either the
Darok or Dihad module (I think the former). There *may* have also been
mention of a module for Smelt (?) or somesuch "free" city on the coast of
the Bay of Sighs.
* Regarding Underearth, the "Conquerers" module was forthcoming, which was
some sort of skirmish rules. It was discussed in one of the later Interplays
and I think mentioned in another magazine like Space Gamer or the like.
* Regarding all of the above, it would be most helpful to figure out where
they were located in geographic proximity with one another. It is obvious
from all of the descriptions that they are in some sort of close proximity,
but the details are murky. Granted, one can always draw a map of one's own,
but it would be nice to get it "right". I have tried, but find that much of
the information is at least mildly contradictory.

We shall see what happens!

> Charles,  I would like to know this too!  It certainly is not Kerry Lloyd
as he passed away many years ago.  I began using Gamelords Free City of
Haven even before Gamelords put out the TFT stuff.  As a matter of fact, I
was one of the first folks to buy Dihad because they release it at a con at
Widener University in PA.  What was it in 1980 or 81?  I remember I had to
wait until Sunday because they had the innards of the module but not the
cover.  I bought it from Kerry.  As a result of this I bought almost all of
the Thieves Guild stuff to use with TFT and came up with a system to convert
characters from one to the other.    Yours in Cidri, Justin
