We'd like to thank a number of people for their contributions to this site:

First and foremost, our outstanding subweb staff:  Plaag at the Judges Guild Booty List, and Azurah at All Things Planar.

David Papay and Lawrence Schick, whose previous research on module and rulebook printing information was invaluable.  David Papay was the maintainer of the TSR Average Auction Price List and the TSR Trivia Page; he hasn't updated them in some time, but says he has plans to do so.  Lawrence Schick is the author of the excellent "Heroic Worlds: A History and Guide to Role-Playing Games", available from Prometheus Books.

Brett "beasterbrook" Easterbrook, for much of our information (and the cover scan) to Jade Hare, and for some tidbits on the R-series modules and 10th Anniversary Combo Packs.  Brett maintains a sterling web site, The Ariel Archives, dedicated to Australian role-playing games.  He is also the maintainer of the newsgroup FAQ.

Kent "darkseraphim" Kelly, for laboring at great length to bring us a workable system for item valuations.

Adrian "blackdougal" Newman for innumerable high-quality scans, and valuable info on Oriental Adventures, Fiend Folio, the AD&D Fighting Wheel, BattleSystem, the Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting, and tons of our Foreign Editions material.  Visit his comprehensive web site, a great resource for all D&D / AD&D campaign worlds.

Rhea "rshelley" Shelley for, among his many other submissions, nearly all of our information and scans on the Adventurer's Guild modules.
