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 . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

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 :(

Just found a couple cool items from my FLGS.  Never heard of either of them but for a few bucks they are neat to just read

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:

In France, the most recent stuff we can find in a local game store is from hmm after 1990  :cry:
I definitely need to live overseas...

Here in Calgary we have the fortune of having a store that has been in business since the earliest days of role playing in the early 70's.  The owner of the store bought his 1st print woody off the shelf of his own store!  He actually wrote Gary and Steve about his thoughts of the 2nd edition of Chainmail.

Heaps of older gamers hang out there, it is a virtual mecca of gaming.  When I first moved to Calgary I was spending more every month at this store than I was on my mortgage  :lol:

The owner's great to deal with, the staff is specialized, and it's the largest RPG store by sq. footage in NA.
I picked up Cloud Kingdom Games' Riddling Unicorn and Lair of the Sphynx (besides some htf TSRs) there.
<happy and grateful>

I try and support them as much as I can - I must have spent a few thousand dollars through mail order over the years and I am still finding stuff.  I've dropped a couple hundred there this year so far too.

At least, it exists ebay for poor French guys like us :(



I received a HPLovecraft Tarot this morning! Art are definitely wonderful!

And not for an insane price.

For $113 the cards better be printed on HPL's tanned hide.
