Mars wrote in Manual of Aurania - contents:This is one of those small press products that is pretty good old school bang for your buck - mainly because there are lots of copies available.


Which would make a great list:
Manual of Aurania, or so I hear. Prices, current sellers?
JG City State booklet I, plus much of JG (Although if you've found The Acaeum, you've probably figured this out already.)
the Holmes box
AD&D rub-on transfers
1981 TSR catalog
1980 Dragon calendar

Any more?

It's okay as far as old school home brew self published stuff goes, and I suppose we can assume the 'second edition' may at least have been play tested a lilies more (although I've never read the first printing so I don't know). At $15 it's a fairly priced curio, and good for the collector of non-TSR D&D to get his fix on a budget.

I've always thought that the common Judges Guild products give muck more depth of reading and greater play material for your money. The Judges Guild Journals and Pegasus magazines are dirt cheap and the eBay resellers and our very own Badmike has usually got a stack of them he can't give away, but they really are worth reading and collecting if you want good value old school D&D.

On the more pricier side of things, the list is almost endless.

One fewer copy left now, thanks...

How do you guys know how many they have left of any specific item?

If you try to add to your cart a quantity that exceeds their stock it will tell you "There is only a quantity of X unit(s) on hand".

If I buy one, there is one fewer left. Unless of course there are infinite copies of an old printing at NKG, which is a mathematical possibility I hadn't considered. I believe I now understand your train of logic when it comes to politics...
