The price drop may have something to do with the re-release of Titan at Origins 2009 (or was it re-released last year...)


Oh, I'm absolutely positive it does.

One bummer side effect of the new Titan coming out, is that Valley Games asked AH General (ahgeneral.org) to quit selling their Titan CD.  Of course, I found this out after I picked up my AH Titan, and went looking for the CD, which has scans of the articles from the old  General magazine, pertaining to Titan.

Well, thanks to Mars, I was able to get a few neat things, like Road Rebels and the Spellbooks of Aldernon. Have bought a few things on eBay recently, too, but they've not arrived... and I'm not saying what I bought. ;) Quit tracking me.

Yes, with a hand-drawn "TM" next to the Titan logo on the side of the box, too---50% chance by Dave! :D

I definitely think that's part of it, and I wasn't aware that the AH Titan CD got pulled either, which is a bummer.

I just purchased two mint copies of Rappan Athuk III for a total of £ 14. There's no shipping cost because a relative can pick them up for me.  :D

The annoying thing is that they were removed from shrink so that their pictures could be taken for ebay.  :evil:

***********

I've also just purchased 4 new copies of the Iron Kingdoms Character Guide, free of postage, for 4p short of £ 80.

Sweet!

Of course, it means I've only lasted two months in buying stuff (for myself)....  :x

Well I hope you can turn around and make a profit on the Iron Kingdom books, I say that because they have released PDFs of the IK books within the past month or two.  So not sure how that'll effect the value of them.

I didn't know about the PDF, but I did sell another mint copy of the Character Guide in September for £ 50 (+ P&P)... so I'm hoping for four repeats! :-) We'll see, though!

Nice collection of Necromancer Games products, especially the top right one of the very top and bottom pictures  :wink:
There are some I don't see as mentioned as well as the Tome of Horrors books, but did want to mention they have 3 new ones that are PDF only right now (with POD to come when DriveThru gets it going).
The Eamonvale Incursion, Demonheart, Slumbering Tsar all 3.5

I didn't put two & two together til just now... nice work Shane :)  I've always loved NG's look and feel, and the writing and production are top-notch, in my eyes.  I'm glad to know you were a part of that!

Yes, I had set them aside, and missed including them in the photo :?

Forgot about them... somehow they never made it onto 'the list'... the hunt continues: just like a shark, a collection must keep moving forward or it dies, right  :wink:

it was my last one to finish the set.. Yahoo!.. I think I was the second bidder when he actualy bought it (the bit were he says he doesn't want to say what he paid for it;).. I bid silly money on it and lost.. it did origionally come with 3 issues of Hogwash if I recall... Just picked up issue 2 in a UK one the day before.. so the next ones should be cheap;).. It will make up for over paying on the Wyrms Footnots from T&T to finish off my set of those..

Brette:)

It's not terribly rare, but I've been looking for one of these at a decent price for a while:  
** expired eBay auction **


Just glad it didn't go for $40+ like the past couple have.  :)

Brette:)

Most of T&T's Wyrms Footnotes prices were actually slightly below the marketplace and the market reduced accordingly.

Yeah, they paid through the nose on the original Warpstone purchase: should've been relisted on the "extras" ages ago, too, according to their own post on the board and bad timing for them that they were just a few days late after delaying that action.
A large fraction of their original purchase price was for the copies of Hogwash, though, rather than those just being "extras". (Define "cheap"? ;))
