Awesome, thanks for the info, Rob. On a related note, I managed to track down a copy of this on Ebay, so another hole in my Indy collection is complete.

However, I had one other question...not sure if you have it or not (but given your history of reliability in relation to all things Indy I figured you might), but I just wondered if the Indy RPG book "Lands of Adventure" had any actual story hooks, or if it was just a reference book for the various worldwide locations. I just realized I was still missing this one and wondered if it had any entries that might warrant additions to the comprehensive Indy timeline I'm working on.

No, it includes "Adventure Hooks", but even that is not relevant for a timeline.

So basically its just suggestions for placing RPG adventures at random locations and years, right? But without the nicely detailed story that most of the RPGs had, I assume.

Ok, thanks. I'm still gonna try and track it down for completness' sake in terms of my collection, especially now that I managed to snag the Artifacts and and Adventures WEG books. Lands of Adventure is the only other one I need.

Awesome, thanks! One of the harder to find Indy RPG adventures...still have to try this one out.

Thanks again, Vance!

Not a problem. I was going to do Wrath Of Hecate as well (and thus make my set complete), but it's more of a boardgame than I thought, and very reliant on all the images. Not sure that a PDF would make sense out of all the scans there.

You're probably right. I know I posted links already, but if you need scans for whatever reason, let me know.

Yeah, I've been to that site many times. It played a helpful hand last year when I was trying to fill in a few holes in my Indy RPG collection. I hope some Indy fan will create a similar page compiling all the Indy RPG products, in addition to cataloging the few Indy RPG adventures (official or not) from various RPG magazines (Shadis, etc), like the ones mentioned earlier in this thread.

Excellent research, creating entries for the main site. If there are any other original game stories out there, let us know!

Just thought I'd add this is the fattest Indy drawing I've seen. The run probably did him good.

It's not an original story, but shouldn't Polyhedron 19 be added to the list?

Good point. I would have imagined this has been mentioned before...but you can decided for yourself.

You know, it's very interesting how much visual love that TSR gave to the Indiana Jones game. The layout, use of artwork, etc., were all very new in the early 1980s and it's still a pretty good design.

Speaking of the game, I've been informed that the license was killed while a few more TSR Indy books were under way. (Three modules and a second GM's guide). Anyone have information on them? I sent a message to Zeb Cook asking about it, but it's not entirely likely he even remembers what was going on with the line way back then... (He was a VERY busy man...)

Does anyone still have these adventures? The links no longer work. I realize the thread is five years old, but I thought I would check. Thanks!

You might be able to find digital copies by searching for the titles in .pdf format. I did a random search and a number of options turned up.

In my own RPG collection I have these original books (but they're in mint condition, so I'd never scan them):

TSR

6570 The Adventures of Indiana Jones (1984)
6751 IJ2 Raiders of the Lost Ark Adventure Pack (1984)
6752 IJ1 Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom Adventure Pack (1984)
6753 IJ3 From the Files of: Indiana Jones Crystal Death (1984)

WEG

45001 The World of Indiana Jones (1994)
45002 Indiana Jones and the Rising Sun (1994)
45003 Raiders of the Lost Ark Sourcebook (1994)
45004 Indiana Jones and the Tomb of the Templars (1995)
45006 Indiana Jones and the Golden Vampires (1995)
45008 Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom Sourcebook (1996)

Wow. I just found out about these books a couple of days ago. I'm really interested in that Indiana Jones Artifacts book. I'm curious about the info on some of those relics. Just wondering but would anyone who has it be willing to tell me what it says about specific artifacts it talks about please?

I don't normally buy stuff through forums. I'm just curious about specific artifacts like Dream Map of the Aborigines, Gae Bolg, Ankh of Osiris, Mirror of Amaterasu, Mirror of Tezcatlipoca, Mjolnir, Judas Silver, Katana of Nobunaga, Lamp of Aladdin, Mantle of Quetzalcoatl, Aegis, Sword of Saint Joan, Staff of St. Patrick, Star Map of Baghdad,Statue of Anansi, Tyrfing, and Peaches of Hsi Wang Mu. Yes that's a lot sorry. XP

Wow. The weg books are really well written. Detailed but not to the point that they're confusing. And I've only read the artifacts book. From what I've heard the tomb of the Templars is supposed to be good as well. Doing some pricing on it. The world of indiana jones also sounds good to, especially if you need to figure out exotic places to send the man with the whip to.

And sorry for the double post.

Question Who has played any of the tabletop RPGs?

After a couple of years of digging through Ebay and Amazon, my collection of the West End Games series is finally complete.



I'm hoping to start up a campaign with my friends soon, but there is so much content here that it's tough to decide where to begin.

Does anyone remember playing any of these? If so, how was it? I'd love to hear about your adventures.

Hmm. Figured a few other people must have played one of them at some point.

Anyway, here's an interesting resource for any tabletop role-playing fans: TabletopAudio.com. Great for adding atmosphere to your games. And as you can see by the thumbnail, the "Mountain Tavern" is perfect to listen to when browsing The Raven forums.

Not sure if this is allowed or not but I'm looking to sell some Indiana Jones RPG books, guides, magazines and novels. If anyone would like a list send me a PM. I'd like to pass them along on TheRaider before I resort to ebay.
