I perhaps became duped as to the value of these items. I only acquired an interest this year perhaps 3 or 4 months ago. During that time I could not find a set on Ebay. The shop items on Ebay for Thieves Guild have pretty high prices. The only one I was aware of was this:



http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/ ... 840&sr=8-4



I know Amazon is usually ridiculous, but given the paucity of items coming up, I thought any set coming up was likely to go for $50 +



I must learn the art of patience in my collecting!

I think $20-$40 is a reasonable price for these sets and maybe $50-$60 for one still in shrink.  They were on the cheaper side of these prices for a long time then interest grew while it was promoted here - partially due to Mark looking for a copy.

The Haven boxed set is fairly easy to find for $20 new - i.e. diffworlds still has these in shrink for $20.

Those guys on Amazon and their goofy prices!

Still...in among the dross there are occasional steals on Amazon, particularly in music.

I think of Thieves Guild as the best of the non-TSR materials from the early era, with the proviso that Judges Guild printed too broad a body of work to think of as only one series of modules.

Tadashi's company www.diffworlds.com where you can still buy most of the Gamelords items for relatively good prices too.

It arrived today and is complete. It has the catalog, discount card and Gamelords order form. It even has the original store receipt showing it was originally bought at 'The Game Chest' in Tuscon, Arizona by Todd Greer.

Oh. and as extras, it had Thieves' Guild 2,5 and 8

Which versions of 2 and 5?  Booklet or three-hole punched?

They were the second print booklets. Perfect condition except for price stickers. Don't think I can remove them.

Do the catalogs, cards, etc match those up on the Tome or are they different?

Is this site still active? I was unaware of it so sent a purchase enquiry after you posted that tidbit here, but have not received a reply.

Tadashi has been slow to reply in the past.

The one time I tried to purchase something there...a couple years ago...I got a reply from Tadashi approximately two months later.

I know that he does make sales because members have bought things recently.

Ask Grodog to contact Tadashi and get him going on your purchase request.   :D

I think Grodog should charge a handling or "convenience" fee for that :)

I ordered 3 Different World magazines in January so the site was still taking orders a few months ago.  Must have been a down time because I received a reply same day.

I purchased a big lot of Thieves Guild and Haven in May or so.  For some reason, I recall responses from Tadashi were ending up in my junk mail - maybe that's happening to you to.

I once had an order from Chaosium go lost for two months....because I ordered from their website.

I finally started sending emails directly to their orders guy and he was able to dredge up my PayPal payment in their records...almost like an arcaeological dig.  They sent me a couple free T-shirts to apologize.

Not that Tadashi has Different Worlds T-shirts lying about.  8)
