RPGA3 - RPGA8 form the "Prophecy of Brie" series, and were later combined into the publicly-available modules C4 To Find a King and C5 Bane of Llywelyn.

RPGA1 Rahasia was first printed by Daystar West Media, and then combined later with RPGA2 Black Opal Eye into B7 Rahasia.  Follow the links to a separate page.

Hickman's original draft of RPGA2 Black Opal Eye was entitled "Orthanc", and was based on the very first D&D adventure that he created for his playing group.  As evidenced by the title, it centered around the first level of Saruman's tower in Lord of the Rings, which obviously had to be sanitized prior to publication.  A copy of this manuscsript is in the collection of the Harold B. Lee Library at Brigham Young University.  Thanks to Clark Timmins for this info.

Printing Information Logos

There was but a single printing of each module; all were produced rapidly in 1983.

As stated before, RPGA5 - RPGA8 were available only in issues of Polyhedron 16 - 19.  The modules are eight-page inserts (except for RPGA8, which is twelve pages); the "covers" are printed on a slightly-heavier paper weight.

Auction Commentary

These modules, like their R-series cousins, are extremely rare (RPGA1 - RPGA4 much more so than RPGA5 - RPGA8; Polyhedron newsletter was more widely available).
