Hey! I just found this. I have tried to track down the RP Game Masters modules and book but haven't had any luck so far. I did talk to Eric Hotz and one or two others on the BC scene who recall that group but didn't think they had any of the items either. They are going to be tough to track down.

Also, the first few issues of First Encounter were basically BC area only so they are much harder to find (including #2 known as the fall apart issue). I have also heard that the annual, compiling the first few issues was produced but I can't seem to find it. The story of distribution is an interesting one too. One of the people involved was a hockey player who traveled across Canada for games so that is how they picked up "coast to coast" advertising and dropped off issues. I will have to dig up my old emails to include some history for this.
