Six years ago, your humble host wrote about Chaosium's 1982 Worlds of Wonder product. We return to that product because a reader has informed me that he (or she or they) purchased Worlds of Wonder on eBay; however, the 'A Portion of Wonder' pamphlet was missing. This, of course, is unconscionable and I cannot sit idly by while a lone voice cries out in the wilderness. In this post, I provide the requested scan. Some concern was expressed over copyright. I am certain that this is covered by one or more 'fair use' provisions (particularly the 'obscure blog' & 'material that has been out of print for nearly four decades' provisions – but you should consult with a lawyer before relying on said provisions for your own purposes). Anyway, what good are laws when justice has been trampled in the dirt?
The pamphlet consists of four pages. The front cover briefly describes the city (usually referenced merely as 'Wonder') and supplies a price list. The interior two pages present a map of part of the city (i.e., the Magic World, Superworld, and Future*World sections). The back cover provides a 'Short Guide to the Avenues', with brief descriptions of places shown on the map (e.g., All-Beings Hospital and Piglar Megalessar's Stage Show and School of Cunning).
