cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... egory=2545  Fellas, what's the deal with the above auction?  Anyone know about this 'rarity'?  It obviously is worth LESS than 500 to all of you since it's still there after a few days and the current high bid is 28 bucks.  Is it something special or just to the seller?  -Jon

Kobold Hall and all the other RoleAids folder modules really are extremely hard to find... this one being the hardest of the lot because of its limited number and lack of widespread distribution.  $500?  Not likely, but you can't blame a guy for trying.  :wink:   I paid around $150-$200 for a copy about six months back (non-eBay), but there just doesn't seem to be enough of a developed RoleAids market to hope for that much in an auction setting.   Go figure.  :|

Adrian is correct, Kobold Hall along with some other role aids items like Beastmaker Moutain, Blasted Lands, Valley of Trees, and Nanorien Stones are very rare and collectible.  Kobold is the rarest of the five but as you well know, non tsr and role aids are not very high on collectors lists and they have not hit the popularity that tsr has among certain collectors.

Why is KH rarer than BM?  Both were 750 copy print runs, per my info.

According to Matthias' site, KH was limited to 750 (which it states on the cover) and Blasted Lands was limited to 1000 (don't know... still need this one).  Doesn't mention numbers on any of the others.  Please share if you have additional info, Allan!  On a related note, does anyone else have a Beastmaker in a yellow folder?  I've seen a few red ones come and go but never another yellow.  Is mine a lone freak?   :cry:   Oh, wait... lone freaks are good!   :D

Remember guys are going to snipe items at the last minute. I am betting we will see Burntwire in the last few minutes trying to get this item much cheaper.

 How about orange??  I have Kobold Hall and Blasted Lands in orange folders.  I also have Beastmaker Mountain in a red folder, Nanorien Stones in a blue folder, a FEZ I in a green folder and a FEZ I in a light brown folder.  Ã
