I need a little help with the character counters for Vanquished Foe. The one we have has the character counters cut and mounted. Does anyone know how many there should be(minus the blank ones if there are any)? I was planning on putting this on Ebay this Sunday but I want to make sure it is complete.

Thanks,
Shawn

Kuo always called this 'vanqy' haha.

It is interesting that this is played. It almost seems more rare to find Wee Warriors items that have been played vs unused items. Guessing collectors managed to get them out of game stores and pass them into circulation.

Thanks for the quick reply. worship

Our copy was probably never played also. The "Sheet 2" counters are still uncut.

Ours matches the second sample. We posted on the Wee Warriors thread, it seems like alot of these were printed slightly different.

My bad, I guess it's not a thread but a research forum.

Wee Warriors was mainly an RPG company, and so they are located under 'W' in that section. Very Happy

If one of those is different, please add it, or confirm what's there.

If you think it, they will come:

This one has 16 Layrinth sheets as well. My copy has 17. I wonder if they just printed up 1000 of these sheets and some left over so some got 16 and some 17?

I sent a question about the color of the geomorphs. If they're tan like the one I have, then I won't need to bid on it. Otherwise, I'll have to dip in to my Wee Warriors budget!

You're probably right about the number differential. It could also be a production issue. TSR's character sheets have been known for variance.

I think mine has 15 sheets, cream colored. The rules book is slightly darker than the labyrinth sheets, with goldenrod pages. Also has as poly-bag.

The seller has a huge collection of older material. This should be an interesting few weeks. I picked up a bunch of Group One stuff from her yesterday. I've been averaging about one title from them a year, so it was fantastic to knock a bunch off that list. Besides, their cover art is some of the best in gaming. The cover to Mission is one of my favorites.
