Thanks. Maybe I'll hold off then. Is the special hard to find, or does it crop up quite often? I'd be tempted to list the sticker on it's own, but if the TG market is unstable, maybe not. It's a shame. I think the TG stuff is quite good, quality wise.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

would say very good + breath of fresh air personally
selling sticker by itself would remove completists item but unlikely to pay >$10-15 for. is a good draw if bundled

I agree.  "Prince of Thieves" surfaces every 4-8 months or so, usually in clumps of 2-3 within a few weeks, and is gone again for awhile.  They were usually selling in the $30-ish range, sometimes more.

I just came across an unused zip-locked copy of Thieves' Guild V For $5. I had a coupla questions.

The Zip-lock is in decent shape but is still worn and "frosty" from years of shelf-wear. It is also pretty loose and doing little to keep the item protected. the contents however are unused and look to be dead mint. I would like to put the mint condition binder-book into a nice snug acid-free mylar sleeve and then put that into the zip-lock bag. Will this lower the value of the item, or is it inadvisable in any way? Especially if I plan to sell it at Mint/New.

Also, I see Badmike is selling one for $24 on the Bay... is this a good BIN price? Noble Knight has one listed as new for $10.

Not sure what to do...

Cheers,
David

I don't think number V is a very difficult one to get.  Diff Worlds has number V for sale at $6.50 although it is the booklet rather than the binder version.  I would probably value it around $10.  As long as you are keeping the ziplock bag, I don't think you are going to devalue it.

My price is probably way too high.  I need to re-evaluate that one.  Thieves Guild items, while very cool, aren't really that hard to find it turns out.

I notice TG items fluctuate wildly, particularly the original TG loose leaf.

Hello,

I scanned through this topic and didn't see the answer, so apologies in advance if I missed it elsewhere...

I picked up a binder with what appear to be TG 1, 3, 4, and 5 all compiled together...   :roll:

Do we know which page numbers go with which product?  

(I'd love to be able to figure out how complete they are... and maybe even un-compile   :D  

Thanks in advance,
david

I've packed mine away and not sure if I'll have time till the weekend to try and find out where all this stuff is.
I am curious though what kind of binder it came in, and if there is a sticker on the front.

Oh no, not a Gamelords or other game-specific binder   :oops:  - just a regular no-name 3-ring loose-leaf style binder... it kept the pages nice, but it's just  I'm not sure where each supplement starts and ends, or even if they're complete...  Thanks!

I sold my complete set about 10 years ago on ebay in a fit of stupidity. I had the first printing which I bought at Michicon or Wintercon back in the day...

I need to get that stuff back...damn it...


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

I can probably take a look for you.  Although I don't believe that the pages for each pack are sequential.

Is it red? does it have "Quill Corporation 14V14." on the pocket?

Now I feel bad... no, it's just a Mead three-ring job that's you'd pick up at the local office-world... not game-related.  Sorry   :(

I found what appears to be an index page... must belong to # 5, because it shows the chapters # - page # for the start of sections from TG1-TG5... so I'll be making piles tonight and sorting through it... though there aren't end page numbers, probably a careful read will tell me if I'm complete.

Thanks for the replies, Gentlemen -  please don't go to any trouble - I'll look more closely & post again if I get confused   :D

You may have some pages with stickers on them, which is what they provided in #4 to make everything conformed when putting in a binder, so not sure if the #5 index page conforms to the new page numbering or the old.  I'm going to try and look soon to see if I can find my stuff.
