I have TSR serial codes 6060 to 6063 for the R1 to R4 modules. Where do they come from? Are these codes visible inside the module?

Who is the cover artist? Is there interior art and if so, by which artists?

Is there additional text on the back cover? (All questions concerning R1 to R4)

Thanks!

Seems like the cover artists would be either Holloway or Roger Raup. Holloway would be my guess. Sorry nothing definitive.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
From the back cover:

Falx, a silver dragon and nephew of old Bahamut himself, has a problem. He needs a hardy band of adventurers to explore some caves near his lair, for the dark powers lurking therein have stolen five potions-of silver dragon control! Can you penetrate the dangerous complex without triggering the alarms, to find and destroy all the potions before sundown?

This is the first of the RPGA series of AD&D modules. Each RPGA module has been used at an official Gen Con tournament and has been designed to provide maximum entertainment. TO THE AID OF FALX is usable in campaign or tournament play, and may be scored by points of using the RPGA Tournament system. This adventure is designed for a balanced party of 5-8 characters of levels 5-9, and 6 tournament characters are provided, along with standard AND isometric maps, scenario and character background information, and detailed encounter descriptions for the DM.

Mike: Fantastic! That's just great. Thanks so much, I can add this right now...

Adam: I had thought it looked like Holloway, too. Can you not query him? Maybe he sells it to you! Laughing

Dropping in here to mention that I am 99% certain the cover art of this item is a Holloway. He recently sold an interior original ink out of the same module. It was common for Jim to get full assignments for specific items.

Also, this was the final part of a 3 part AD&D adventure that was run at Gen Con South and East as mentioned above. The first part was Investigation of Hydell. Together they are billed as the first official RPGA AD&D Tournament adventure. Information from Polyhedron #3.
