That's just nuts. That's almost an R series module you know? That's a normal priced white box set. :)

Very hard to find with both the large color map and the counters unpunched.  I've always thought this one undervalued.

I wish mine had gone for half that much, but I just had a copy of the counters and the map was split.  Still, I was pleased with the final price.



I agree with Mike that the module is undervalued.  It is a great adventure, has interesting plot twists, good pictures, good accessories, cool maps, everything you want in a solid module. :)


Truth is worth finding and life is too short to work for money.

Oh, and it has handouts (often missing) and a inner sleeve.  Probably one of the most difficult D&D items to find complete.

OK: Although I must admit to also being surprised by that sale price, I must agree with Mike:
B-10 complete and in Near Mint condition is not an easy find at all and I agree that it is a well-written module. Better than most of those that are valued higher.

An R-Series module (even in bad condition) will likely get $125 or better, and if in excellent or better condition would likely go for twice that price (Or higher). I have not recently seen any White Box Sets that are not crushed into pulverized condition going for $125 or less either.

I'm not complaining. My bin was actually $95. Prices across the board are going up...especially if the item is in collector grade shape.

And I know this may pain some of you, but I picked it up in a small lot of modules off ebay just about a month ago for about $21. I haven't had a find like that in a long time.


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

The guy in Australia who was selling the Larami TSR wallets over the last couple of years is down to his last one.



Quick hit the $350 BIN before someone ruins it and makes a bid!

I had thought that the last one before this was the last one... maybe he advertised it "almost the last one" last time.. I can't remember...

Not a long time ago on ebay.fr...

It is a very very high price for this stuff. One of the last I saw was bought by le_rahib for around 60€ and he paid very very more than current price for this item, but he really wanted it and it was a mint copy too. Degassy seems to be like him :)

Mine was not shrinkwrapped.
But anyway, I can not imagine how high was the maximum bid on these boxes.

My French is a bit rough, but did you just ask him to dress up like Warduke and beat you with his little plastic sword?
