More Information Edit | History

User notes:

The first-edition booklet was not sold separately and instead was included in the boxed sets of other Chaosium games released ca. 1980, e.g., RuneQuest 2nd edition, Call of Cthulhu 1st edition.

The second and third editions were released both as simple booklets without covers, which were included in boxed games, and also with monochrome or colour covers and sold separately.
