Harami2000 - my old nemesis :twisted: , picked up a set of unwrapped Aussie G & D Series in January 2005 for around $180 Australian 8O, if my memory serves me correctly, sniped me at the last minute (typical modus operandi for the Harami2000). In fact I know he holds multiple copies in unshrinked condition - as our combative history goes way back to the nether years 8)
Though as a consolation I picked up the Australian Jedko version Hall of the Fire Giant King for $5 Australian at one of my local secondhand haunts in excellent condition (blows his own trumpet at the success) :D - thats the beauty of being an Australian - access to local markets.
I am not suprised that the majority of these are appearing in Victoria, especially Melbourne. Having grown up there, I remember how large and successful D&D gaming was in the early eighties there.

UK D series are bloody hard to find.  The seller got back to me in the last day of the auction to say he wouldn't ship outside the UK. :(

I think I have one of those "Greyhawk Adventures" hardbacks in my stock for sale. PM me if you're interested.

Also - this one just snuck right by me....


** expired/removed eBay auction **


DAMN IT!! I can't even win one for $40....  :cry:

How hard IS it to actually GET all of the H-series modules???

I feel your pain; I just tried to win an H3 by bidding $35.00, but lost out when the winner bid $39.00.   :(  :(  :!:

Here's an H4 that ended at $34.99:

The H3 for $39:

H2 for $24:

BClarkies H2 that ended at $20.50:

There were several other H modules that ended recently in the $25 - $35 range.  It wasnt that long ago that all of the modules in the H series were selling in the range of $60 - $80 with H1 still topping out at over $100.  You guys should be happy that these have started bottoming out and you arent having to shell out $75 for a beat up H3.  8O

I picked up a BEAUTIFUL copy of H2, that was four times better than described in the auction for only $26+shipping...

However, H3 and H4 keep sneaking by me.

I'm waiting on a trade for H1 to see if it is a possibility....

Thanks for pointing those out. I see there is one right now for $34.99, but it looks pretty whacked ...

Trying to get all of those in excellent condition +

Thanks!

I just got an excellent H2 from Mike's Magical Menagerie. He is Acaeum member Papasloth advertised a non-Ebay sale site in the classifieds here:

viewtopic.php?t=5505

I have made two purchases from him now and all items were in described condition or better and got to me quickly. It is sometimes a joy to buy from non-Ebay sites to avoid the hassles of bidding.
