"For a period in 1979, TSR experienced a dice shortage. Basic sets published during this time frame came with two sheets of numbered cutout cardstock chits that functioned in lieu of dice, along with a coupon for ordering dice from TSR."
I followed shortly with the 3 core hardcovers. I remember that Dieties & Demigods was the new book when it came out. I have a 1st edition copy with the two unauthorized mythos.
