Please visit our archive pages for more information regarding this small RPG company. As you know, the Hickmans went on to make significant contributions to TSR. As such, we are making progress with this publisher. The only items that might be missing are possible print variations of Rahasia and Pharaoh. They had a couple of titles that never made it to fruition. One Vampyr and the other was Eye of the Dragon. Apparently, according to Tracy, Eye of the Dragon was nearly printed as the covers were made. And Vampyr was drafted and sold to TSR and printed as Rahasia.

Please visit my interview with Tracy for more information.

Items we are looking for here:

Scan of the cover Eye of the Dragon and possible print variations on Pharaoh and Rahasia

Very interesting. Do your copies of Rahasia not have this information?

eBay description wrote:
I bought this 1979 edition of Rahasia in a little gaming shop in Davenport, Iowa. It is not in perfect condition. Pages 9 & 10 (the players maps) are missing but I have hand drawn copies. The yellow sheet pictured is a NIGHTVENTURE! promotional sheet included when I purchased Rahasia. It describes the concept and philosophy of gameplay of the Hickmans. "Daystar West has produced a revolution in fantasy."; "one-night scenarios"; "And the idea carries into quality."; "...background story,"; "NIGHTVENTURE is not killing for sport."; "The map on every page saves (the referee) from looking through unneeded sheets for the information he wants; freeing him to enjoy the game with the players."

It also describes 4 more NIGHTVENTURES, all of which I am not sure were ever produced:
PHAROH (level 3-4)
EYE OF THE DRAGON (level 5-6)
VAMPYR (level 7-8)
BRIMSTONE (levels 9+)

Measures 8.5"x11". Copywrite reads,:

"Copyright May 1979 by Daystar West Media Productions

ALL RIGHTS RESERVED"

This info was in the yellow flyer that went with the auction.

Very interesting. If anyone hasn't asked Tracy yet at Dragonsfoot, I will see if he will comment on it over there. I am in a fog now, but I will look into this tomorrow.
