Featured items for the auction included the rarest, most sought after, and valuable newsletters: The Corner of the Table Top and the Domesday Book. The Corner of the Table Top is the self-published newsletters of Dave’s own campaigns, including the historic announcement of the exact date for his first “medevil BRAUNSTIEN” and Blackmoor campaign details. The Domesday Book is Gary Gygax’s self-published Medieval enthusiast newsletter which cultivated the development of Chainmail and ultimately the underpinnings of Dungeons & Dragons.
