Well, those two have gone for ~£70 each several times, as well. ;)
150 copies was not exactly a large print run.

Thanks, Brette. Good to hear that's still sounding positive, even if in a holding position for a long time.

No news for the longer term, though? (Well, aside from a mass collation if possible as was hinted on the fora IIRC).

Wow, I have something strat doesn't have.  8O


Mine is already filed behind some things I don't feel like moving, so I'll go by ToT's notation of 1994:  http://tomeoftreasures.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=2171

That is strange.  I had another extra set of these pass through my hands last year.  I'll keep my eye out for a Raflan.  It seems a bit less common than Casalana.  I really like both of these - started reading one and ended up reading through them both.  There's lots of info in there.

Purchase price was £5.06 on 5/12/06 if that's the same one I think it is. :)

Seller's market, eh?



(Casalana was £5.66).

I have had 3 sets and each have cost less than £15 each.  These generally go unnoticed in auctions and sell cheap - undervalued in my opinion.

I've picked up a few items lately too:

Didn't realize that the Larry Leeds Combat Matrix came with an info sheet (but happy to have it too).

I have to do some research into Runequest too - to figure out what exactly I picked up.

Nice find there of the Combat Matrix. Mine didn't have the info sheet, so I'll need to make a mental note to amend the listing on Afterglow2. Haven't seen one of those in a few years now.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . The white ones with the little red flecks in them.

Didn't have the info sheet as well. Is it possible to get a closer pic/scan to see what it is written? :)

Great find on Advanced Phantasm adventures. I have never seen one before. The same for Bloodchant... I am looking for Bloodbath for a while, without success. Do you have a copy? A picture would be nice!

Too bad that your RQ Reston book is missing the dust jacket :(

Nice!
After your read, if you want to sell the TCT books, I would be interested :D

Heroes is more similar to tabletop game than to real RPG though. Is the map included with your copy? It seems that a lot of copies are missing the map...

The Heroes does have its map, great John Blanche cover as well :)

Not really for sale though, it will be lost (both figuratively and physically no doubt  :) ) in my collection for the next millenium.

I keep asking to help come and sort out their overstock storage but so far they won't let me in ;)  Nice pickups!

I actually found these mixed in with some old Wargame Magazines.  Must have been in the store for 20+ years misplaced in the wrong section.  Staff did not even know how to ring in the sale the stuff was so old :lol:
