I just finally received my OD&D Supplements II, III, & IV yesterday, but in the same package, the seller packed in another item, The Dragon Tree Spell Book. It is a digest sized, saddle stitched booklet just like the OD&D ones, but is produced by Dragon Tree in Abilene, TX. Mine is a first printing, dated 1981, so if it weren't for the style of the booklet, I probably wouldn't be assuming it was for OD&D.
Anyone else have this, or any other product by them? It gives over 200+ new spells, with details for a mana systems, and percentile systems for magic (somewhat similar to what DCC has created).
Interesting that I can also find at least one (Note to Printer) markings inside.
Anyway, I'd love to hear what information, if any, that anyone else may have!
I have that, too. It is better written than the od&d tsr books, and the art is better. I never bothered to look at the publishing date and just figured it was late 70s. At any rate, it is fun to read, has a refreshingly positive tone, and has great spells.
I have a copy of this somewhere as well. I have never actually used it, but seem to recall that it was well done. (I tend not to deviate too much from the original books. Nothing wrong with adding more spells, but I find that the M&M spell listing is pretty good already.)

Yeah, I'm not sure if I'll use it, but it is certainly a thought provoking read. A good place to get new spell ideas for players to find, or alternate magic systems. I like the idea of exhausting the magic in an area if a player were to say, cast 15 cure light wounds there in a certain amount of time. Haven't looked through the cantrips yet, but they may be a nice addition as well.
Also thanks guys for your response. I'm glad to see some others have it. I just found out that you can still buy their products online. I may have to do so next paycheck just to see what they're like.
