Tegel Manor (1st printing, 1st release, Judges Guild), softback adventure for Original D&D
“Tegel Manor, a great manor-fortress on the seacoast, is rumoured to be left over from ancient days when a great charm was placed over it protecting it from most of the ravages of time and human occupation. The hereditary owners, whose family name is Rump, have been remiss in their traditional duty of providing protection for the market village to the west. Some have said that this failing and their bizarre eccentricities have led to their corruption. Many have found the manor and area to be a dangerous place to visit!”
According to The Acaeum, there were four different releases of the first printing. The second to fourth printings included flysheets with a cover price. This copy lacks that and would appear to be a VERY RARE first release, first printing, from 1977.
As a first release copy, this would originally have been shipped to subscribers with Judges Guild Journal L and a Characters Checklist (and in some cases a Wizards Guide). This copy is just the Tegel Manor adventure.
- 24-page booklet (VERY GOOD condition)
- 11″ x 17″ Tegel Manor players’ map / area map (double sided) (FAIR condition – a previous set of players has mapped as they have explored the manor, in pencil)
- 17″ x 22″ Tegel Manor judge’s map / area map (double sided) (FAIR condition – looks to have originally come as two 17″ x 11″ sheets; however one of the map sheets is completely torn (neatly, in a straight line) along the fold, so the map is actually in three sheets)
