This bundle has been sold by Noble Knight Games for a long time.  They have a ton of these.  The price you paid is pretty much consistent with what they have been going for +/- $20.  Not sure if you were aware but the "City of Brass" is only a promotion flyer.

Yes, I was aware. Did the other bundles they sold have the City of Brass flyer?

Yup I thought about bidding on that one but the actual currency exchange rate from Swiss Franc to Euro is the killer   :x

I saw these, read the description, and said well $70 probably means $35 each. So why not try a snipe of $100 bucks. What the hay right. No one noticed or maybe they aren't worth a thing? Anyone know about these?


I'd be happy to answer any questions you have about these, invincible.  Noble Knight has a fair amount of the old CU stock, so they're not super-rare.  

The Acaeum research about the City of Brass:

Page Not Found


Rob published a version of CoB in 2003 with Kenzer & Co. for their Hackmaster game, but they got someone else to finish his ms. while he was offline for 6+ month on disability from a multiple-fractures broken leg :-/  I have Rob's original ms., and it's substantially different from the version that Kenzer published :-/

If you're a fan of RJK's work, feel free to drop by his messageboards at http://pub175.ezboard.com/bpiedpiperpublishing and say hi---he's online daily, and is quite friendly =)

edit:  At GenCon, Crazy Egor was selling printed copies of the freebie City of Brass for about $5 each IIRC---they were printed straight from the Acaeum version, with the usual header/footers/etc. >-/  When I pointed this out to Rob, he went over and gave them an earful, and they pulled the copies.

I have never collected Dragons, but I have been waiting to get a good start.  I think this lot qualifies. At 50 cents an issue, I am feeling pretty good so far.


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

I'd buy that for a dollar!

Not a bad deal at all considering how crazy OCE's have been recently!

draco.

Normally I do bid on White box sets. In fact, at the time that one was going I was bidding on about four others....


Nice nab there.  :) The Supplements alone are going to get a higher price than you paid for the lot if sold separately.

Thanks Frank.  The first 2nd printing I've seen in 25 years.

OK, it's a bit rough.  But still a bargain.

I decided to take a shot at this lot of games. Well, they arrived...

...and I think I got a pretty good damn deal. Nearly everybox has extras, including other rpgs...DragonQuest, Car Wars, a nice copy of Swords & Spells, extra modules and the like. The Traveller stuff has loads of extras.

All the games are in great condition. The boxes show some wear, but the contents to each is nearly mint and unpunched. It was like opening Christmas presents :D


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