I have a bunch of birthright stuff I need to get rid of.  I dont want to throw it out if it has any kind of value.



So do people collect birthright?  Or is it only good for the junk pile?  



Its kind of a shame actually I never got around to reading the stuff though it looks interesting.



Thanks.

the actual box set, if complete, can sometimes coup a fair sum, but most of the accessories, barring 1 or 2 rarer pieces, generally fetch next to nothing and they are seen there and abouts quite often. coug normally has loads listed all the time and tend to go for a few bucks each, IF they sell.

ps. perhaps if you listed what you have, others here may be able to assist more accurately? :)

Thanks Killjoy.  I will dig them up and list them here.



So there are people who collect this stuff like us Planescape crazies?  If its of value to a collector I would try and sell them to get some money for them but also to help someone who is collecting get what they need.

You have the top three items for Birthright listed right at the top.  Campaign boxset, navel rules and magecraft are all worth listing on Ebay, the rest of the stuff will get you only minimal bids (IE $1-5 apiece)


Games can get you through times of no money but money can not get you through times of no games!!

Thanks for the feedback.  What about Priestcraft?  Couldnt find that on EBAY either.



Care to give me a ballpark figure for the box sets? 10$ a piece? $20? More? Less?

Magecraft and Priestcraft can go for maybe $10 each. Campaign setting, Naval Battle Rules and Havens of the Great Bay can go for a little more. The rest for next to nothing (< $5 each).



That's just my 2 cents, of course.

Heh, I didnt even look at the shipping. :oops: That must be a misprint though, I could almost fly down there and retrieve them face to face for that much. 8O

I am terrible at calculating shipping.  I always get burned on it.  For example the last 8 items I sold shipping cost me almost double what I paid :/  But I never ask for more money nor do I charge for handling fees.



According to auspost.com something that size and weight will cost about 70.50 AUD to ship to the USA.  Thats about 52 USD.  But the last time I used that shipping calculator it was out by about 10$ USD.  So I added a margin.



You can chop 10$ off for Economy Airmail and cut it in half for sea-mail.  As I say in the description I dont mind using whatever people prefer.  Its double for postal courier service.



Willing to ship for cost if someone here buys them.  Or if someone has a suggestion on how to get a more accurate shipping cost short of lugging it down to the PO and asking them.  I will gladly re-edit it.  Not looking to rip anyone off but I'd prefer not to screw myself over either ...



I also charge the correct shipping fee for someone in Australia as the margin for error is much larger (for example no price difference between a parcel that weighs 250g upto 20kg I believe).

I revised the shipping cost.  I put the caveat in that I would weigh the item at the PO before invoicing and listed the ballpark figures for the USA.



That should be more equitable for everyone.
