Lots of $100 BIN for Hoth but in open auction they generally sell in the $50-$60 range.

Still a great lot!  The Star Wars Saga books are good money too.  Probably for about $800-$900 at a quick glance.

Wow, those were good prices, considering that they retail for more than that and they are a limited print run.

Peter K. was given several complimentary copies. I would guess were among those given to him. Crap, I never even saw these auctions.

edit: Ok, I hit the link. I probably never would have found them... 8O

So there I was in the local game & comic store, picking up some bags & looking over the 3E selection on the second-hand shelf, when I spy the old box of Dragon mags in the corner.

(which for me, is the equivalent of, say, this old guy comes up to your table in the tavern... or maybe, you come across the wreckage of a caravan with footsteps leading off into the woods...)

... the store owner kindly says, they're yours!  Some dude left them on my doorstep a year ago (lol!), you're the first person to look at them since.

Nothing terribly exciting, like last time, some old Dragons, Dungeons, Polys, but there was a Best of White Dwarf Scenerios, which I'd never connected with despite completing a run of WD to 85 or so.  A triple-F:  Fun Find for Free :)


I draw the line at collecting... D&D Towels.

umnnn... none of either booklet was ever numbered, at least not when sold at the Convention; Maybe Peter numbered his comp copies....
I also know that Neither booklet had exactly a 100 print run either....
The exact printing data for the NTPRGCon Digest Reprint of The Dwarven Glory : 55 copies - 1st print:  45 copies - 2nd print.
Misty Iles was also limited to just under 100 copies due to a printing company error.

Even so, both of those BINs should easily qualify as grand theft limited edition booklet at those prices.

AHA!
That explains it...
The title of the two listings
Wee Warriors Misty Isle Texas convention reprint signed by original author

Wee Warriors Dwarven Glory Texas convention reprint signed by original author

were misleading for me with no pictures and ZERO description, other than saying to look at the pictures which are not there.

Any ideas about these two? I like to buy almost any dungeon crawl to read and see how the adventure is put together. The artwork seems good. Don't know how hard to find these really rare.  Is the price reasonable?

Hey Peter, welcome to the Acaeum!  Those appear to be pull-out mods from fairly common Dragon Mags, probably could buy the whole issue for under $5.

Yes, from issues 57 (Wandering Trees) and 61 (Midas Orb) respectively.  These were from the IDDC contest where submitted modules, some of excellent content, were printed in various dragon magazines. When they are removed they are often sold separately, but as TD said, better just to buy the Dragon mags themselves with the adventures inside.

Took me rather too long to pick this one up, not exactly helped by postage rates...
And as overambitious as it sounds: a socio-economic-political roleplaying worldgame. In a can. In 1969.

Roles are not fixed over time: players may attempt to progress their character up or down the social scale into a new role depending on their game strategy or personal goals, but each role must played broad-brush according to the character books provided. More-or-less open-ended interaction above-and-beyond the (borderline unplayable?) game framework appears to be encouraged.
Whereas the game itself is not open-ended, there's not necessarily any one "winner" in that the whole world can easily(?) be dragged down into flames and chaos so that no-one can "win". Rather too realistic, perhaps? One blogger's comparison with Kingdom was rather astute, IMO. :)

The canvas map is kinda gorgeous, too... (White box for scale).
