Center_Stage wrote in The Non-TSR Recent Fun Finds thread:While not necessarily hard to find, I picked up a shrinkwrapped Wilderlands of High Fantasy (Necromancer Games) and a hardbound City State of the Invincible Overlord (Necromancer) at a local game store auction a week or two ago for only $21. It was listed as a "d20" lot.

I never thought I'd find one of them for that price, let alone both....!


I'd say that was about a $150 savings, though I haven't priced these in quite awhile.

Probably a better savings than that. I sold a d20 Wilderlands for $220 and a d20 CSIO for $65 in the last month or so. (Though Joe Goodman has been liquidating several of his personal copies of d20 Wilderlands lately, which is probably eroding the price on that in the short term.)

Edit: But wow, I just looked at completed auctions, and a bunch went fairly cheap right after I sold mine.

Iron Maiden HeroClix. Have always hated their music, but Eddie's a different story (one of the first major album-cover icons of githyanki heritage, I understand).

I finally found a copy of Bifrost Vol IV, for a decent price :)

While browsing a gaming store that I have never been too before, I found a copy of Circvs Maximvs.  I had a copy years ago, along with Gladiator, but got rid of them at some point.  I re-acquired Gladiator awhile back and was pleased to find Circvs Maximvs today for only around $15.  Box only has some scuffing and general shelf wear but is not torn, dished or crushed.  Contents appear to be all there and in nice shape.

$15 for a complete box set of Circus Maximus is a big bargain.
Nicely done.

Thanks!

Now to maybe take the game for spin a few times to learn how to play.  Then perhaps next June, I'd feel comfortable entering the races at NTRPG Con.

Hell, I did not know how to play and entered the races in 2011 and 2012 and had a blast.  The whole game is set up on the premise of screw your neighbor.  Everyone knows how to play that.

Nice find.

How true!  :D   I was at the Con in 2012 but didn't get to attend this year.  Hoping to attend next year!

Not quite.  I'm out in Colorado.  I'm originally from Massachusetts and grew up there.  Left when I was a Junior in HS.  I have tons of family there still and a sister that lives in Stafford, CT but I haven't lived up there for a long time.

Well, maybe see you in Texas in 2014 then.  This NTX thing seems to be getting popular.  ;-)

I can't imagine a Con being more fun than the North Texas Con.  2012 was a blast.  Can't wait for next year!

I was planning for the 2013 trip down, but my son's school had to go and schedule his graduation right in the middle of it.  ;-)

I actually bought something from T&T!

8O

I know!


I kept seeing listings for the game Agone on ebay, and the cover art looked incredibly appealing.  They I saw that T&T had complete sets of the game for, uh, kinda cheap:

Agone 5 Book RPG Lot (Agone) Multisim Publishing - Agone RPG - RPGs by Game - D&D and RPGs

You can also get the five items individually for a total of $0.06 more, but without the "varying conditions" grade notation (instead all listed as near mint).  I went that route and they did indeed all arrive near mint.  Shipping was more than the books, but I was still in for only about $10 total.  I think I've enjoyed the art enough to be happy with the purchase.  Now I'll have to look and see if the game is actually good and/or there is useful material to mine.


Areas of interest/knowledge: Harn, Pendragon, WFRP, Ars Magica, anything BRP based, CoC, Runequest

Planning: BRP/Harn

Actually, Agone is one of the best French RPG. Even, one of the best RPG ever designed. Wonderfull art, wonderfull text, wonderfull setting.
