I would really have liked to have pushed that price up. If anyone sees original product (especially typewritted stuff) on eBay, PM me.


hey ian, that was my stuff chummer. BTB won a lot of stuff for me and i didnt want that cos it would have cost too much to have it sent over, so he sold it for me.

didnt even give a moments thought that you might want it - sorry.... but wasnt you getting married or something about that time?

Sorry about that Ian.  In fact, I pretty much figured you would win it - I posted it on the Classifieds here.  I assumed you would have seen it .  . . bad timing if you were on vacation/gettting married at the time.  

:(

We also have a copy of this adventure. We bought it from the daughter of the author. I think we may even have another adventure written by him.

I'd bid on it, but I don't do the "handling" thing.

Hmmm did I miss something with this one:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... %3AIT&rd=1

I didnt even bother to throw in a token bid becuase I figured that it would have been a waste of time.  Was there something about this auction that I missed that caused it to go for only $10.00? :?

Oh, I see, I didnt realize that there was more than one printing(makes sense though. :P ). I just saw FITS and I thought $$$. :oops:

Was outbid at-or-(slightly?) above that level within the past few months. Must admit that current one does look kinda fresh.

So either seeing two recently was a fluke or it is not the end of the world as it were. I want to play it so I am happy with a punched copy. I would have hesitated to play it if I had won so I am ok.

Thanks for the link. :)  One thing about that this board though, why pay $10.00 for something when you can get almost the exact same item in an earlier print for 20 times as much :P

I trust it's not that bad, Marlith!

Dun know 'bout rarity sometimes when it's not possible to keep tabs on everything passing through.
Many rares have appeared in clumps of two, three or more at once; Tsoj, 4th(-) OD&D, T1st Greyhawk, etc.

I get the impression that owners of early Chaosium material are less likely- on average- to let it go to eBay. Just a feeling, that...

Likewise ;)
There are quite a few people looking for a copy, but it's possibly not the easiest item to spot in eBay for those of us who just do casual searches.

Heh; just spotted one of our new members on the <boardgamegeek> review thread; User Review | Elric | BoardGameGeek
(The original review in WD rated it higher).

   Anyone deep enough into gaming to purchase Chaosium is still deep into gaming.  I suspect that at least 10% of all the people who ever purchased an Elric of Melnibone publication way back when are members of the Acaeum right now.

I have that one, Marlith. Boguth it a long time ago. I don't recall seeing it before or since.
