Haven is also a Thieves Guild product and structured for that system. But it is generic enough for AD&D. I do not have those mods so I can't answer.


Well, I appreciate what you could answer!

What the heck - maybe I'll just order everything from Tadashi and see what I think.  The prices aren't bad at all.

Yes the modules are generic enough to easily convert.

I always enjoyed the TG adventures, Keridav and Cealdo!

I was president of Phoenix Games. The rights to "The Lost Abbey of Calthonwey" have reverted to the author, Robert N. Charette. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_N._Charrette unfortunately I do not have an address for him. FYI, Bob also did the artwork for the cover.

So I took the plunge and ordered a stack of items from Tadashi.  These are pretty interesting!

Of course, he's sold of the 2E Thieves' Guild box set.  What can I expect to pay for that when I find one?

I have a question about Haven: Secrets of the Labyrinth.

I just picked up this item quite cheaply in Australia and I can't for the life of me figure out if it has all the maps or not. The 20 pieces I have do not seem to match the vol. II in the map front. Is anyone able to confirm, which pieces it should have? Thanks.

You should have maps V, VI, VII, XII, XVII, XXII, XXIII, XXVIII, XXIX, XXXIIa, Ib (the last two are half size on one sheet).

This does match the picture in the front - sorry  :(

My information comes from a new copy recently purchased from Tadashi (see above a couple posts).

Thanks. Actually mine has ALL of the ones you listed, plus the following, which are all in 3-hole-punch format:

XVI, IV, VIII, X, XI, XV. XIX, XX, XXI

It also has a half sheet only: XIA

At first I assumed I was missing half a sheet as 'Heroic Worlds' states 20pp cardstock sheets - but I guess that means 10 2-sided cardstock sheets.

It seems I have extras then - are they from the first Haven set (which I don't have)?

Yes, they are from the first set.  You're missing Ia (a half sheet) but have all the rest.

Note that I'm using the second version (the box set).  I don't know if the original loose leaf version was slightly different.

Is this worth bidding on?



What should actually come with the box set? Does this set have items missing? This is a late question. Auciton ends in two hours.

Its probably worth a bid.  The box set should have books: Thieves' Guild, Basic Character Creation, Bandit Scenario and Highwaymen Advenutures, Maps for scenario adventures, charcter sheets, catalog, 20% off card.  So it looks complete except for maybe the catalog and card.  The other Thieves Guild 2, 5, 8 are extras.

Provided shipping is reasonable, I think that's a good deal.  If you figure $20 for the 3 Thieve's Guild modules and $21 for the boxed set.

Yes. Indeed. I won the auction. Shipping is always a bummer but comes with the hobby when you live down under!!!

Sorry to edge you out, have been hunting one of those for a while.

Yep, and he was not the only one here bidding on that lot.

But after winning the SAs I had to stop well short of what I was planning on bidding.

Congrats though; that was a nice lot of TG items there.

BTW Was there not FOUR TG books in the lot?
TG 1, 2, 5, and 8?

OH! Never mind.
Guess the First one is part of the Box Set right?

Mention of the Thieves Guild 2nd Edition Boxed Set on the Acaeum has been known to bump up the price on Ebay by about triple.

I sought this holy grail for some time...always expecting to get the #3 copy on Ebay at the lowest quality grade.

Then, with a flier bid of (like) $10-$20 I get shrinkwrapped copies of both the 2nd Edition Box and the boxed version of Haven.

At the time I was narked because the shrinkwrap kept me from examining the contents.... :x

Given that you got other Thieves Guild publications in the box, I think you did OK.

I think we got tired of bumping up the price on these to stop you from getting one ;)
