If only you knew how hard it was for me to source the Finans
source book through the military book store from the nearest city roughly tens years ago now. I had started buying them whilst I was living in caravan park in Sydney
. I had brought one of the new Horned God
novels that were also just rereleased back then as well. The ones that were printed in two book format. I'm not sure which one, but one of them got soaked after buying that one from either Comic Book Kings
or Kings Comics
in their CBD. That place new the resturaunt with the three monkeys sculpture on the street corner. I brought core rule book with only eighty bucks spending money left over for food after paying my caravan allowance. At the time I thought I might have waited until I was earning more money, but was very excited to get his book.....
I then began to buy the other remaining books (Before I vacated the caravan park at the eve of News Years
day.) in the subsequent fortnights. There were a few more books I still had to get before I stopped buying them all together for the time being. These were all being purchased from Games Paradise
street. I had to return home up here almost three years later when I tried to resume purchasing the rest of those.
This military bookstore whom I won't name, did comply for a few more of those books, but not the Finans
which they stated was out of print & I even asked Mongoose Publishing
themselves via their forums. They said the same thing, but I was able to source a copy of the book through Ebay
once I had got my debit card set up. It was such a bitch trying to purchase anything online without one. The book was still in it's plastic wrapping like a lot of them were. They were still brand new, not second hand!!!!
I was annoyed by their attempts to stop me from buying this book and made a lot of noise about it here on the MP
website. That Military
boost store is now no longer there, but they have another store in Sydney
Their staff definitely don't like me, but I'm not really sure why they disappeared otherwise.
The books themselves are just souvenirs to me . I don't think I will ever be playing that game anytime soon. Not any RPG actually, unless it's online MMO, or just a forum game. Although, the author who isn't Pat Mills
had some very interesting theories about Slaine
& his world based on what he research and had got from the comics. Back then, I didn't have access to Slaine
in his entirety so far & was at a lost for much of it too. I find book knowledge very satisfying enough, but always had a issue with Slaine
being from race of Warped-Ones
rather than just being human man who possessed a gift from the Earth-Goddess
then dropped the D20
game when there were plans to write more sourve books concerning the Fortress of Dinas Emyrs
& everything you wanted to know about Pluke
Yet they were cancelled. I think whomever was doing this ran out of licence to write about it. Such a shame, as I was otherwise enjoying they're take on it.
Then the Slaine - RuneQuest
which used all the Clint Lanely
art work in black n white variety. If you weren't lucky enough to win the limited edition book using photo real colours. I might try to source that one. That book was the only one they did for that game that was also dropped.
Then they were going to write a Legends
version & brought the core rules for that. They were pocket version. Not sure I like this, and told them that they might like to see if they could get rope the Paladium
rules guy into doing this along with Judge Dredd
, Strontium Dog
(Which had also been as RPGS
based on the rules for Traveller
!) and then there were plans for Rogue Trooper
& Nemesis the Warlock
