I thought we had a thread for this but can't find it, so....



At the flea market at ConQuest this past weekend, I picked up a copy of Chaosium's RuneQuest 2nd edition, Avalon Hill's Kingmaker, and TSR's Empire of the Petal Throne and Legions of the Petal Throne.  



I wasn't able to attend the auction, but heard that some good deals were available....

Hi All,



Just picked up a big mainly D&D collection this weekend.

Had to pay a lot for it, but it included:



White dwarfs 1 --100 originals in binders

Dungeon 1 -- 60

Dragon -- approx 200, from 45 up, with a few earlier issues, in binders

Strategic Review 1 - 7

Imagine - full run, in binders (I didnt know they did binders for this)

Approx 100 box sets (including all the Planescape boxes)

500+ modules and books, including:

ST1,  RPGA1, 2, 3, 4,  R1, 2, 3, 4,  H1, 2, 3, 4,

T1-4, A1-4, 14 Gazetteers, Necromancers, fighting wheel,

I10, B10, Vale of the Mage, Vecna Lives, Greyhawk Ruins,

Iuz the Evil, Rary the Traitor, Deities with Cthulhu, etc.



For me, some of the "best bits" are the cheaper modules that

I don't have -- mainly 2nd Ed stuff. Plus RPGA 2 - which has eluded

me for some time :) I never bought Dungeon, so that's a bonus too.



I don't get to play with them, sorry, SORT them properly, until

the weekend tho :(



Cheers,

Malcolm

well, judging by that list, I think Malcolm should be forced to produce Karen just to make sure he didn't trade it her in for that lot!

I just got a box o' stuff from RPGA in the mail today, totally unexpected.  It had some promo stuff (a promo poster for the new d20 Dragonlance CS, some full page stand alone ads, a winter retailers catalog, etc.), a promo mini, a HUGE solid d20 with all these runes on it (with attending instruction sheet, its an artifact with random results in combat), and a published version (softcover, black and white) of the first Legacy of the Green Regent adventure, Extermination.  It TOTALLY made my week.

My most recent batch of stuff included a bunch of monochrome modules for $1-2 each (including a NM first printing of G3), a shrinkwrapped X4, and a bunch of nice reading/gaming copies of misc. other modules.



Still hunting for Treasures of the Dragon Queen though....

Stupendous lot from Australia. All 6 of the monos, a collection of the Arcanacon modules, UK Tome of Magic and Dragonlance Adventures, and a huge run of regular modules published from the Cambridge, UK division, including a complete DL series.


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.
