I bid $75 for the Pre-Pub - Red Skull
And not because I feel I HAVE to have it (not totally anyway) but because I wish to support Robs work.

I am in for 2 copies of the second printing as well please.

On that basis of that ^ I have a home brew module that I wrote years ago, it fits into any campaign, is 1st ed AD&D and will be a one off print if anyone wants to start bidding.

As artwork of mine had been published in Pacesetter mods before, art is in place.... ;)

You weren't in hot water with me; I just didn't have an interest in the original idea.  I'll happily order one from lulu.


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

Planning: BRP/Harn

1) offering a print run of this to people who want it at a fixed price (like you have before) - maybe change the cover (even if it is something simple as changing the color)

2) leave this one for sale as the now "controversial" cover (limited to 1 copy).

I'm not too interested in PDFs, I get them, save them on my computer then I lose where they are.  I like hardcopies so I will up the bid on the "controversial cover" to $50.


Thirded, or whatever. I would be in for a copy.

Thork, behind you 100% with whatever you decide. It's your call, anyway. No harm, no foul.

Hector.

Currently not. Perhaps if the members would post-in on this subject a concensus could be determined.

I'd be happy with a PDF for use of a module this size.

£3.03 in the UK plus shipping here. This isn't a limited amount of printing though is it?

:lol:

$80 was enough, but $100 puts you far in the lead.

Bump to $125.  I respect the way this controversy has been handled by everyone on the forum/post.  It's worth the bid to encourage such civilized discourse... and the module looks awesome too.

Wow, fellas.
I'm getting a bit nervous, right now.
The text is only 4 pages, with 8 for maps.
Very sandboxy, minimal stats. No art.
Please keep all that in mind.

What drives a one off product as this?

Is it the quality of the author who has produced decent goods before?

Or is it the unique pre-pub edition? Because we can all buy this right now for $8, which in itself is high for something with so little content, when compared to the DCCRPG Appendix N items etc.

If this were a B1 pre-pub, or something similar, I'd get it. Even Pacesetter or Burntwire Bros items don't fetch this!?

It is a response to the backlash:

"This is just a greedy cash grab!"
"No it's not, in fact, this is well worth $100 plus!"

I don't know if even I know the answer.
But, it bothers me that the whole thing, apparently, has upset some members.
So, just to let everyone know where I stand on this,
if the winner has second thoughts about such an investment, I will gladly take the next bidder in line and take anyone off the hook until the item finds a home with the person that truly wants it.

Please, don't get me wrong, I have no issue with this, on the basis that you've run it as a pre-pub. Although as a one-off, only ever to be 1 printed idea, I thought it was a cheap stunt. But that isnt the case obviously now.

I just don't understand the pricing fight and was curious what was driving those who are bidding this up over $100.

I'm not questioning your products either, they are good from those that I have purchased. It seems odd for what is (to me) effectively a small 12 page homebrew work without much detail. Just trying to get a grip on this really.
