They are BW copies of the 2nd edition Complete Adventurer.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . gummy bears.

I know that copies have no collector value, but I like them nonetheless.

I thought it was funny how the seller listed them as "reprints."

I bid figuring that at least one was genuine and the others were worth a shot.

Someone definitely spent some effort making those copies.

I rebound an Unearthed Arcana that way and I've been using it for years.  Works great, but was quite a bit of work.

Does anyone know what the going rate for Necromican or Beauty and the Beasts is?  I know they get up there but I don't remember seeing an auction finish.  I only remember a couple ebay auctions ending early because of a private offers.


Presuming they don't get bumped for resale, reckon on ~$50 for the Necromican and $100+ for Booty.


Those would be fair prices. I've seen people pay $50 more in each case though.

Doesn't look like a bad price. I have seen them go for more. I am pretty sure you will be pleased with your purchase when you get a chance to read it.

Nice win, dbartman:  Starstone rocks, it's one of the best adventures published.

Made my day.

Amazing price on the pit fiend.  Probably because the seller didn't put "Ral Partha" or even "miniature" in the title.

That is a great find for the price.
Was the other a 2nd print, or the recovering of this print?
