Büffelburg = Buffalo Castle

====================

Although my German is a bit rusty, this looks to be a German version of Tunnels & Trolls by Flying Buffalo. It is interesting to note that the cover appears to be from a painting Caldwell did for TSR because it is listed in The Art of Dungeons & Dragons, although no source is given for the painting being used. The painting is called "Dragon's Lair."

Very interesting their use of the Caldwell artwork. This was from the cover of Dragon #65 from September 1982. Does the printings above with this art all come from the 1983 printing?

Cheers,
Curt

It has the following four pieces of date information:

Copyright for the text 1975, 1977, 1979 by Ken St. Andre
Copyright for the German translation 1983 by Fantasy Productions
Copyright for the drawings 1979 by Flying Buffalo and by Fantasy Productions
Printed in West Germany 1983

So to answer your question, I would say yes. 1983 is the date for the German production. The other dates belong to Flying Buffalo. It does suggest that perhaps Caldwell retained the painting, for awhile, at least.
