Nice buy!  If in good condition, there is $250+ worth of MERP stuff there.

Don't I know it!  But apparently I am not quite as lucky as I thought.  I got an email from the seller a bit after I won the auction.  He stated that some of the maps were missing and he forgot to include it in the auction description.  :x   He said that he would have no problem voiding the auction if I didnt want them or I could go through with the transaction and he would give me a discount and some freebies.  I dont ever plan on reselling these so it isnt a big problem for me if a few of the maps are not included so I went ahead and took the offer.

A little disappointed but I still think it is a heck of a deal considering that most of these books never sell for less than $50 and two or three of them are easily $100 books on Ebay.

Now my next question:  Who here owns The Shire and Dol Guldur and wouldnt mind emailing me scans of their maps?  :)

Depends upon your situation, but I would go for the discount plus freebies.  I am happy to supply map scans, but both books are (a) packed away and (b) I don't have a scanner.  I could dig them out and scan them on a mate's scanner, but will take a week or two - so someone else here might be able to help more quickly.  Or better yet someone in the US could send you colour copies for a small price.  :wink:

My Ebay budget for next month is toast though.  8)


Yes. That is a good buy. The MERP stuff seems to be having a resurgence in price again. I saw a Dol Guldur alone go for over US$75 recently.

These came in the mail today.  There is some staining on the covers but the World of Silverdawn also came with the map so I'm pretty happy :)  That and the price was right.

I was really wary when bidding on this lot, as the Seller had won them a week earlier and decided to sell them again. It turned out he didn't like the games as they were too complicated.

I got this whole lot for AUD$110 and was shocked to find that they are all well cared for and 100% complete.  The lot had a SPI War of the Rings, an ICE Battle of the Five Armies, and some excellent Avalon Hill titles including Merchant of Venus.

I liked the way the seller highlights those great items in the second pic, I've always wanted a Simpsons Battle of the Sexes game  :twisted:

Top seller!   :wink:

Yes. It has made me rethink my whole hobby. I may ditch my RPGs and Wargames and start collecting gimmicky Simpsons games from the 1990s. :lol:

I was able to find copies of The Castle of Entropy and Charibides Hall from Hess Games today for $1 each :D  They're in excellent shape and complete, including the cardboard inserts and ziplocks!  

Hopefully I'll be able to scour some other stores while I'm in the area (San Diego) over the next few days.

Hey Stephen, thanks :D and I'm glad that I found another one, as I was under the impression that they are/were a little difficult to find. Did you receive yours yet and if so, what do you think about it? I have not had a chance to review mine yet, maybe this weekend.

In addition, did you find out more about Fortress Ellendar, as I had come across some info online stating that this module and its successor were re-printed under another title from another company.

Does anyone know anything about this?

Thanks,

I've had a look through mine, and really like it.  Nice content and "feel" to it.  I wasn't aware there was a subsequent printing.  Where did you get that information?

The adventures were also published in a hardcover book called Adventures in High Fantasy by Dillow published by Reston Publishing.  The book contains Fortress Ellendar, Moorguard, Terra Ash, and Lords of Conquest.  Reston had a couple other hardcover High Fantasy books such as a rules book too.

Here's an auction for the Rules book in hardcover:

The Adventures in High Fantasy has a similar feel to it.

The other High Fantasy hardcover book by Reston that I was thinking about is called Wizards & Warriors.  It contains two solo play adventures: In the Service of Saena Sephar (the wizard) and Murder in Irliss (the warrior).

It didn't happen online, but I picked up a 1st print (confirmed thanks to some info) of Judges' Guild's Dark Tower for $17.95 + NYS tax, or barely over $20. I also purchased The Fantasy Trip books (well, just Melee and Wizard) for a combined $60, and both still had their little boxes. I think that's some good dealing. :)

1st print Iron Wind along with 4 other Rolemaster books:

Iron Wind

Free City of Haven with BIN - okay, it might not be complete, but it sure looks close to the full amount of pages from the pic.  Plus they say it was never really used and this seller let a lot of recent items go for absurdly low BINs . . . so we will see.  :)
