What is Your Favorite Judges Guild Release?

Snagged for $25 on eBay tonight

I always wanted a copy of the original Wilderlands of High Fantasy. I'll need to grab some maps to fill this out, but I'm okay with that.

I also grabbed Wilderlands of the Fantastic Reaches and Fantastic Wilderlands Beyonde.

So, for now I'm going to say the Wilderlands are my favorite Judges Guild releases (i do have some of this in PDF, but print beats all when it comes to the earlier stuff.)

So, what's your favorite Judges Guild release(s)?

(don't forget, Goodman Games will be rereleasing some of the Judges Guild product line)

  1. CSIO, beyond any doubt. Tegel Manor is high on the list. Ready Ref Sheets are vital. While it isn't very original, really, I've also gotten an AMAZING amount of mileage out of the Book of Ruins...

  2. I'm with James, CSIO by far. But I really liked Ravenscrag also.

  3. I only ever had CSIO and Ogre, Ogre (Operation Ogre?), that I recall. So, CSIO.

  4. Ready ref sheets. Allowed Holmes to be extended!

  5. Caverns of Thracia, Dark Tower, Book of Treasure Maps, City State Invincible Overlord (although I never used the last one).

  6. I like CSIO in theory, but rarely use it. In the past, I've gotten the most use from Book of Ruins and Island Book, but I don't have copies anymore. Ley Sector and Glimmerdrift Reaches are pretty neat, but don't fit well into the places they're supposed to be in the OTU (they make fine sectors otherwise).

    Actually, I think that I like Portals of Torsh the most. I remember a great game where the players ended up trying to conquer the lizards, but things did not go well for them.

  7. I would have to say that my absolute favorites have to be The Wilderlands series and the Portals Series. Portals of Torsh hits a great Gonzo point, most especially if the players are coming in from another world.

  8. We had great fun playing in the City State Invincible Overlord when it came out. My first GM had dibs on JG stuff so I didn't own it originally, though I picked it up some years later.

  9. Tegel Manor is my personal favroite, though also liked Book of Treasure Maps and Ravenscrag. I'd include Dark Tower and Caverns of Thracia, but I've never actually done more than use them as inspiration.

  10. Most of it. It's hard to [pick a favorite, but the original CSIO remains high on my list.

  11. Either the original Wilderlands of High Fantasy or CSIO. Duck (not Dark!) Tower is a close runner-up as well. :)

  12. Mine Has to be First Fantasy Adventure. Closest I'll ever get to the dungeons of 1973-1974 that set the game in motion. The original Castle Greyhawk submerged in the depths of time, El Raja key and the Jakallan Underworld on indefinite delay,

  13. I really liked Heroic Expeditions -- an adventure for halflings, an adventure for half-orcs, and a random mundane item table! I also got some use out of the Book of Treasure Maps. First Fantasy Campaign was interesting but had nothing usable IIRC. Ready Ref Sheets were a great idea and still have some worthwhile ideas like the crime & punishment table and random city encounters. Never got into CSIO or Wilderlands or the modules. But it sure would be nice if the Glory Hole were back in print.
