From the introduction: "Nightventure is a series of 'one-night' scenarios designed to be used
in conjunction with existing fantasy role-playing systems. As such, none of the scenarios stand
as a game alone, but as a single, focused definition . . . an application of the game theory set
forth in those other works." (Thanks to Kynan Connor, USA for this information)
Collectors arcana: This is the original published version of Pharoah which was later purchased,
revised and republished by TSR
with the same name. This is a highly desirable collectible but seems to pale compared
to other high profile TSR collectibles that turn up more frequently on auction.
"I have talked with many a wind in hopes of help. Uncounted seasons have passed and my kingdom is not now to be seen in
these desert sands save only my tomb which stands now as then. Many have tried, I trust, and none have yet succeeded.
If ye be wind, you have heard this tale before, but if ye be living... I am Amun-re, son of Takosh-re of the house of Mo-pelar!
These rags you see forever cross the desert ruin of a kingdom in vain hope that which stirs in the sand here and disturbs my wandering
may be men of living blood..."
