Rules Cyclopedia in terrific shape. Cover probably FN+ to VF-; interior VF to VF+. Better than what I had already, which I got for 3x the price.

VERY NICE deal.

BIN was $9.99 for a item that now commonly sells for $30 +...

Same seller has a copy of Unearth Arcana BIN of $55.

Obviously that seller has no clue at all.



Congrats. 8)

They also have a Survival Guide for $25. I'm thinking they looked at Amazon pricing, and this was an error, intending it to be $99.99 or something, and I hit it before they could change the listing. Lesson to be learned, double check your pricing on BINs before hitting that 'submit' button.

I've been searching for this in SW for over three years now. I paid crazy for it, but I'm sooo happy!

If it's worth it to you, then the price isn't too high!

Congrats on finding a long-awaited piece.

ZOINKS!!!  8O  :lol:



Actually you guys in Europe get a deal on the exchange rate, right? So it's not really as high as it looks (for your benefit)?

Euro has been falling for months.  That makes it "more" expensive for them, not less.

Yes, 185 dollars means about 140 euros right now, which is a respectable amount, but still the exchange rate it is quite convenient for us. Although it has been better in the last year.

Got a tip from a postal clerk that a used book store in town had a lot of D&D stuff.  Went there - they had exactly three 3.0 ed. items, not priced to sell.  Went by the Goodwill on my way home and got a 1st ed. Ravenloft Realm of Terror for 99 cents, a Warhammer Armies Dwarfs book for 39 cents, a 2nd ed. Monstrous Compendium (in the big binder) for $1.99, and a D&D Adventure Game boxed set for $1.99.  Boxed set turned out to be missing dice, but does have a CD with a demo character generator in it.  So no great finds, but I was ridiculously pleased.

Well, you found more stuff in one trip than I have ever found combined at various garage sales, goodwill stores, etc. My luck absolutely sucks.  8O


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

I have a plan so cunning, you could put a tail on it and call it a weasel.

nice prices.
I was bidding (E-Bay) on both sets this week, but lost at the end when it went above what I wanted to pay.

Console games have "zones", right, but do PC games?

I was browsing through a gamestore and noticed some 1E and 2E modules.  Most were in good shape but overpriced.  1E and 2E hardbacks were also in good shape but similarly overpriced.  Curse my luck.

I saw a 2E DM Screen and opened it up to check the condition of the Terrible Trouble at Tragidore.  One can never have too many DM Screens.  :D

The DM Screen did not have a TTT.  It had a Dark and Hidden Ways.

That is simply terribly bad luck. :cry:
I have an extra copy of TTT that I would trade for that incorrect module you got... :)
