Collector's Arcana: This was a tournament dungeon on offered at 1986 Games Day Convention at the Royal Horticultural Society Hall in London. The module was conceived as a bit of a pun on the location and gardening at large even though it was inspired by 1986 National Gardening Festival.
There is some bit of speculation on the numbers of these existing (+/-300). There have been quite a few of these seen up for sale more recently. Even so it still fetches some of the highest amounts in open auction.
The ST module code designation on this module is derived from Steam Train. In the adventure there is a salamandar powered steam train operated by gnomes. As you can see, this adventure is in keeping with the fantastic dream/nightmare scenerios Graeme Morris was known for in other module efforts for UK TSR. This is the most valuable adventure module.

Blacker than black... formless yet menacing... advancing towards you from every side..."
