The Regulators Limited Edition Cheques

Please note this page is unfinished as yet. The notes haven't been written yet, and I'll have an easy way of getting to the number you want... just gimme some time!

Well, the Limited Editions of The Regulators have finally arrived, and each has a cheque made out to either a character from a King novel, or some other link. Each also has a memo indicating what it's there for. So as to make the table below a bit more usable, I've put any explanatory notes at the bottom. If the memo looks like a link, click on it for more explanation. This is incomplete as yet, I'll update it as I hear about them.

Many thanks to Peter Schneider for this list, and Glenn Peters for help with a few of the explanations.

Note that cheques 1-399 were written by Peter, with no duplications. Starting from 400, Peter's wife helped. The names on the cheques are the same starting from 1, but the amounts have been changed.
