Right on from my perspective.  The $1999 BIN 2nd print looks fab, but missing ref. sheets??  The one I picked up had them included, so curious on that point.

At least its white.  Moreso than most of the "white boxes" I normally see on Ebay.  :scratch:

Good timing...

One of those adventures is "Witchstone", from Polyhedron 21.

Nov 1984.  Witchstone AD&D adventure; Why Gargoyles Don't Have Wings, But Should!; Take Command of a Titan; Five New NPCs; Module
Building from A to Z


A few pages back I posted a link to an auction for a GM copy of a "Witchstone" tournament from Gen Con South in 1983. At the time, I didn't realize it was also a published adventure.

zhowar wrote:"DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS 1983 GENCON WITCHSTONE RPGA MODULE"
Up for auction is a GM copy of Witchstone, which is an RPGA module run at Gencon South in 1983. The first paragraph of the introduction reads:

"This is the RPGA module for GENCON SOUTH 1983.  The module is divided into three sections: The Journey to the Hills of the Giants, The Hill Witch and a special section for the DM which includes PC stats, THACO sheets, and monster sheets with the amount of damage each monster can take."

Also included in the auction is Gencon XIII program booklet from 1980.



** expired eBay auction **




Grodog, is this new information for your tournament page? I see you have some Gen Con South listings but not this one.



I can't make out the author's name on Witchstone. Can some with Polyhedron 21 look it up?

I contacted the Seller on this one and can confirm it is actuallya 4th print. Given the three hole punch, it is not worth much.

Well. Let' see. I will put in another bid at the end. However, according to our JG subweb. We have 4th print fair condition valued at US$5 or $6.50 Australian. You both clearly think it is worth more than that? It may be just that I have a seething dislike of three-hole punched items!!!

Librarians destroy old books, by wrapping them in plastic, stamping them and gluing in bits of paper. Roleplayers destroy great old items by punching holes through them!

1)  The Acaeum JG subweb price is obviously not accurate in this case.  Not accurate even by 200%....maybe 400 to 500%.  1000%?  2000%?  Hell, that price quote of $5 is nuts and I can only assume that it doesn't mean what it appears to mean.  I have no idea why it says $5 for an item that should routinely be expected to sell for $30 to $50 or more.

2)  I love to purchase former library copies...I like the special covers on the paperbacks and the repaired binding on the hardbacks that makes them totally useful.  Hell, if I had had access to librarian craftsmanship back in the day, I might have had all my D&D books re-bound by them.  Librarian binding would have saved many lives in the 80's...tragically lost to exploding copies of Oriental Adventures...possibly the most poorly bound game book ever made by someone besides Games Workshop.  Just think of how many Second Edition AD&D books might have lived had they had expert binding help!

    My copy of Heroic Worlds is a former library copy...purchased just for that reason.

Well, you've convinced me to bid on it again. Obviously I should have hit the BIN when it was $12.

But down here in Australia we are roleplaybibliophilatelically-challenged. Tiny market, few items. Although I am involved in monitoring JG prices, I have little concept as to what they are worth. Also having got a Mint Installment W and some of the early newspaper journals for a few bucks over here a couple of years ago, I am finding myself surprised at the growing interest in JG as a collectible. I suspect the sub-web here is contributing. It used to be so hard to figure out what bits and pieces one had with JG

I'll raise the low price of that Dark Tower with the Board!!! :)

if i lived in the same country as the $12 BIN, i would have snapped it for that. as its hard enough to get hold of. if you havent got a copy of dark tower, its good enough until you get a better copy or are happy enough with that one. a much better condition one, you are going to be swamped with peeps bidding against you anyways and don't forget, you are getting an additional item too, which is also worth a few $ too.

Have you looked at the price for this on the site? The $5 quote was for the low end of the 4th print spectrum..you'll see the NM values to be much higher then that.

The Valuation Board has only had about 3 months to collect data, so yes in the beginning somethings maybe off, but time will slowly correct the oddities.

Don't take offense, Shane...

Actually, no I haven't looked at it.  

That's what I meant when I said that the value quoted could not possibly mean what it appears to mean.  

There is no way the JG valuation board could have been so wrong...so it stands to reason that there is a deeper meaning to the $5 quoted price.

I have a 1980 basic [blue book] D&D box with chits. Looks like this one, but not folded, the text is is all on one side, & there is no mailaway offer. However despite now being the same size as the OD&D version in the auction picture, it looks like maybe something was scissored off by the former owner. The back of the box illustrates two blocks of chits, not just one, so perhaps the mailaway offer was on another folded half. I'd like to hear more from anyone who knows about the chits. My OCE, bought new, had none.
