I would have thought everyone in the world had a copy of X1 by now - I love the adventure but its surely not worth more than a $1 :lol:


You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

The local RPG shops want $30-40 for these.  (They're collecting dust.)

There are two things I am pointing at.

First...9.50 for X1 (2nd or later printing). Way high.

Second, Up until about a year ago, X2 always went for $10 plus and usually in the mid to upper teens. These have taken a major drop.

Just thought it was funny to see and X1 go for more than a X2. It is a far better module than Frenchy, but crap...


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

   Actually, it looks like he might get his price.  Also, he does have a Best Offer button...which is probably what he is really fishing for.  I would not be surprised to find an Acaeum member buying him out.



   Nothing there is particularly rare, but the total cost of collecting these things separately might get into this range when shipping is factored in.  If you were looking to rebuild the collection you foolishly sold back in college, this guy might be someone to contact.

Well, if someone here buys the lot, I'd be interested in purchasing the M&T Assortment Set 1, if it's a first print.  Hard to tell from the pic, though.

He is about $400 high. Now if you were to buy all that stuff (minus the mags) separate and pay shipping for each the price is not as bad, but still too damn high.


I am looking at it from a collectors standpoint. A reseller would have knock around $600 off to make it worth his time.


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

Yeah, not counting the miniatures that is more than $10 per item, including a Dragon and a couple of catalogs.
