I missed that one, but after I found out that the Kuroth's quest on the cover really had nothing to do with Kuroth's Quill, my passion for the title waned considerably.

Nice lot! Individually, those items could go for more than that.

I am pretty sure these were not sold in shrink (maybe someone in the UK can verify).  I remember this seller had a bunch of other items "in shrink" that were not released this way.

Hopefully it was done at some store rather than the seller doing it to hide the inside is full of highlighting, etc.

It sure looks sweet!! sharp corners, not a hint of spine wear.  Looks brand new!  I may have to open it up if it is not original

Jeff, wait, don't take the shrink off! these definitely, 100% chance came out in the shrink upon initial release. i was managing a game store/distributor at that time and i got mine straight from the source in the shrink. where, somewhat sadly, it remains to this day....go ahead and buy another one Jeff it does look cool....

Actually, it is hard to get one in such a condition. Most of times corners are well worn.

For a copy in that condition, it's fine.  Almost all of them are beat, and thus sell for less.  The spines are notoriously fragile.

That is the 3ed Edition HC, right?
I traded mine for a Talislanta 4th ed HC.
Spine was in great shape.

What do the Stormbringer 2nd & 1st ed books go for, these days?

Well, that's certainly true.  

I imagine that most of these hardbacks did not outlast their first year of use...if anyone ever played a full year of Stormbringer.   :scratch:

They were printed in that era when glossy covers and explodo-spines were the norm.  Just being in a book bag would tear those books apart.

Actually, a number of the supplements are floating about  for quite reasonable prices...including some that are still for sale on the Chaosium site for cheap.

IIRC Octogon of Chaos is the "rarest".
