"Go to the sign of Harvel's Axe, a dubious inn on the edge of the Thieves Quarter, in the City of Greyhawk, and look to your own wrist. If you perceive a bracelet and dangling dice, watch for the next throw in the war between Law and Chaos and be prepared to follow the compelling geas." -Signal

Booty List - Judges Guild, Mass Reincarnation

With Judges Guild items the easiest way to tell the various printings of  items is too look at the Booty List that is printed in the item. Items  appears to be for the most part numbered sequentially as they were released.  This makes it wast to identify when it was released.

Somewhere along the lines I got stack of Booty Lists that were not printed in  an item and are there own free standing product. I suspect these may have come  with the catalogs that were sent out but this is just a guess. Using the same  deductive principle though this would look to have been released in 1977.  There are two items that support this. The last item on the list is Modron  which was released in 1977. This is less conclusive but it also talks about  Dragons #1 - #5 being out of print. Issue #6 was released in 1977.

I have not been able to find any information on the Booty List being  described as an individual product. I am going to go under the assumption  that they were sent with the catalogs but again this is merely an assumption.  Regardless these are a great peek into the way things progressed with Judges  Guild. It would not be out of line to say that D&D, RuneQuest and Traveller  might not be what they are today and what the were if it had not been for the  products provided through Judges Guild for them.

If anyone knows anything about the free standing Booty List please let me  know.


Mass Reincarnation
Level: Eighth
Range: 6"
Duration: Permanent
Ares Effect: Upto 6 Creatures
Components: V,S,M
Casting Time: 2 Turns
Saving Throw: None

This spell except for ability to affect multiple creatures, the higher spell  level and increased casting times will in all other ways be identicle to the  sixth level Magic User Reincarnation spell. The spell allows the caster to  select up to six creatures that will be affected by the spell. The caster  will not need to specifically touch them but can specify them as desired.

Disclaimer: The spells that you will see, for how ever long the write ups  last, were all written up or conceived of back in the 80's so the terminology  may not appropriate for anything other than 1e and depending on how well I  did back then it may be slightly off for that as well. If there is any  duplication of spells that exist now it is most likely I wrote mine first :)  Please feel free to comment on them but try not to be too hard on me. If  anyone wishes to use these in anything they print please let me know in  advance and all I ask is proper credit.
