Burning By Numbers (Monster Burner)

Monster Burner Numbers

The first 500 copies of the first print run of the Monster Burner were hand numbered by Luke and Drozdal. If you have a numbered copy, please enter the number, your name, where your Monster Burner is currently geographically located and where you bought the book (if you can remember). The other books were numbered as well: this page for Revised or here if you're one of those original BW grognards.
