    OK, guys, I'm taking up the first prop replica again that fascinated me: the Grail Diary. Years ago a made some inserts / upgraded some inserts and posted them on the COW. I share some of my own work here, and would also like to request some inserts that were "out there" once, but after all these years I can't find them anymore.

    So first start with my stuff:

    White Star Line Folder in attachment (recreation based on a low-res scan of an original one)

    Venice Museum Ticket, based on an original ticket:

    Venice Museum Ticket Blue.jpg

    Camel Pack + little blue seal. Scanned from an original Camel Pack:

    Camel Pack Front.jpg Camel Pack Back.jpg Camel Pack Seal Front.jpg Camel Pack Seal Back.jpg

    Eastern Telegram, scanned from an original one:

    Eastern Telegraph Front - Red - Small.jpg Eastern Telegraph Back - Red -Small.jpg

    I might upload some more stuff later on...

    So what I'm looking for:

    This specific version of the Purple Dragon Tavern Rules:

    tavernrulestr0Small.jpg

    On the old site indianajonesprops (https://web.archive.org/web/20080814003616/http://indianajonesprops.com/grail_diary.html) there were two PDF's:

    Printables - Inserts - Tavern Rules Insert.pdf
    Printables - Inserts - Tavern Rules Insert - Reverse.pdf

    Don't know if these are the same, but those PDF's are welcome too...

    This version of Codirolli's Obituary:

    That's just a digital download of the grail diary content... As far as I know this content can be freely found online. I would not pay anything for this, to be honest...

    Take a look here to start: Indyquest.nl You can download a digital Diary there...

    I can't help you with that specific article version, but the photo is actually of Arturo Toscanini:

    The handwritten Tavern Rules version you have pictured is a scan of Magnoli's. It has notes on the front and back, from what I remember.

    Yes, I also have seen these:

    Alsmost identical, but the one posted before, looks longer than these ones.

    It's just an earlier version. The one you have there is also his, from a later edition of his story diary.

    Thanks for the picture Serenity! I recreated the article:

    Obituary.jpg

    I'd also like to add the torn text on the bottom, Does somone has an idea what words could be there? I think a native English speaker (which I'm not) could maybe "guess" what title could be at the bottom?

    I found this newspaper clipping in my archive. I scanned it from the game diary. It has been used as template for the Obituary, it seems. So I'm going to make it in the same way:

    Is the obituary itself based on 'official' sources or was it made from scratch using information from the game diary?
    Otherwise, a few suggestions:
    The date should probably be 1926 based on information in the game diary ( I don't think there would be a date under an article title).
    His name is misspelled in the first line (Codirelli instead of Codirolli).
    Maybe invent a first name since it's an obituary (Giacomo/Giovanni/Giuseppe?)
    Maybe RMS Titanic (or survivor of the 1912 Titanic disaster)
    82-year-old with hyphens?
    The game diary mentions Bologna several times, so maybe replace Sapienza university by the University of Bologna?

    Here is the final version of the Obituary. I know that some of de data on it, is not correct, but I want to keep it as close as possible to the original insert file:

    Nope, it's an invented insert for a Story Diary.
