Somewhere between "less common" and "very rare", I'd guess.
Perhaps not quite as rare as the (still unlisted) 3rd+ PHB.

fairly rare i would say....... common being you see it all the time, uncommon, you might see it occasionally, fairly rare, maybe a half dozen times a year? rare, very seldom - maybe 2-3 times a year, very rare - about once a year, unique...well almost never.

hows that sound? :)

*rechecks condition notes*

Personally I'd say that was fine, even allowing for shipping.

If those mods were on the main listing ( Page Not Found ), the price would probably be somewhat higher by now; if not by as much as the GW Character Sheets which have increased almost ten-fold since their inclusion in the "Misc." section.

Agreed!  They need their own "rarity" ratings, as well...

I agree as well.  In fact, they are have just begun to be tracked for Valuations.  (as well as some other rare UK items).   Maybe sometime next year there will be some more accurate prices for them.  It's up to Foul, of course, if he wants them on the main listing or under Foreign Editions.

I was staring at this last night, but didn't see anything particularly alluring.  What did I miss?

One shot adventure released by a company called Delf in 1982, only about 12 pages but this one is shrinkwrapped so I can't tell for sure.  Advertises another adventure coming soon but never happened (obtained info from Afterglows).  I think the guy has another copy, I could probably get it for someone if they want it.

I'm the guy who wrote the Afterglow blurb.  I had two, and sold the other one on frp.marketplace back in the day.... can't remember for how much but not that high.  My copy is still shrinked so I can't relate much more about it.  The other advertised item on the module was never released according to someone who contacted the original author back in the late 90's.  It's a pretty tough item to come by but who knows how much it would go for these days on eBay....

Back during the late spring early summer I remember following one up on ebay. I stopped bidding at about $15 and I'm pretty sure it didn't top $30 n' change. It wasn't in shrink of course.

Yeah. They go for about $30 and crop up maybe once or twice a year.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

Heh, heh. I actually sat on that for a good 5 or 10 minutes deciding whether or not I wanted the hassle of buying, breaking it up and selling it again.  I did finally decide what the hell and went for it. :)   Now I just have to hope that it doesn't end up as a sellers nemesis, "A Garbage Lot" :evil:  I figure either way I should be able to at least make my money back even if it is. :)

I have Lair of the Medusa (16-page book with inside of front cover having a map, and inside back cover being a continuation of text for the module). Not sure how much I won it for but it was some time ago.
