The condition plus the fact it was a 1st. My favourite item of all the things I've collected is my UK Edition box (possibly, hmm...) This would have topped it. So more love than sense really. Anyway, who can resist boxes with things in?

Agree - condition, condition, condition... plus of course I missed the $63 one that Rakeesh sagely pointed out (duh !!)  :lol:   In fact I seem to have been waiting for a nice 1st box set for a while.  

Cheers guys - I am glad I missed it, roll on the next one  :D

Blackmoor did well on the Strategic Previews.  Congrats!  

What's up with #4, though?   8O

Good Sharkey Colonel God!
I don't know who ended up with my copies of SP a few years back, but it was possibly Paul. I had 3 and 5, so he would have dropped the bank for 4, I'm sure.

"So, only copies from this first printing have those two mythos in the book."

Technically the first couple of printings, & the plural of mythos is 'mythoi,' but it's the thought that counts.

Was thinking more along the lines of:

There is the hand-written word "Production" on the front end-paper; this copy came from TSR's vaults, which explains that at some point this book was somebody's office copy at TSR.


Difficult to verify, of course, but I followed up with a couple of emails with the seller while it was still active.  Sounded pretty attractive (the book, that is...).

Would be grateful for more details on the GH, and of course the printing of the M & M.

Question: Are LC1 and LC2 really that rare? I am looking to fill a few basic holes in my TSR collection and noticed I do not have these. I did a search and noticed one absolute Dorkmeister has one listed for $150. Yet, I did not wake up quite early enough this morning to bid on this:

Is that an exceptionally good price?

They aren't in the RPGA or R series of modules but they are maybe uncommon(?).  I have had 3 sets pass through my hands in various lots.  I think $21 is probably a good price but $150 is crazy.

Missed it by that much. Oh well bubble mailer, doesn't like eBay check out pencil on books. Seems a little off. Maybe it wasn't such a bad thing to miss out on.

I set my alarm and everything, but got distracted at the last second and when I remembered I had 8 seconds left, which would have been enough if it weren't for that stupid confirm big screen.

I know it's all common stuff, but gathering it all together is going to run me more than $1 an item.

Hero Quest x 3

I was going to buy it, but the seller took too long replying to my question about shipping.... :(
