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)

Actually, DWP printed up T-shirts to support the Valus product for GenCon 2004, and I'm sure Tadashi has some left (it has some gorgeous mapwork on the back of the shirt, with DWP on the front IIRC).  

Anyway, I pinged Tadashi and he's definitely around and still in business and is working on .pdfs and reprints of DWP materials (DW, TG, CT, etc.).  So, if you don't hear back from him after an initial order, re-ping him, and feel free to name drop me since he said "I will be sure to send a response if they include a line that says "Allan Grohe sent me."  :lol:

well I've ust been reading through this thread (finally) and I'm intrigued and liking the sound of Thieves Guild stuff.

Is it readily available normally on ebay or here for sale? Without splashing out a load of cash for starters, I'm interested in having a look at this to see if I should start picking these up...

Any advice on a starter flavour piece please?  :)

Cheers
Dave

Actuallly, tadashi at diffworlds.com did just get back to me and I placed a small order. Some of the items are still available there, but unfortunately the core sets (1st ed looseleaf and 2nd ed box) are not available any more. You can get them on ebay of course, but the prices are creeping up.

As a starter I would pick one of the remaining TG Adventure Booklets.
Whichever one seems the most interesting to you since each one offers something very different than any of the others.

Several of them are priced to move at $5.95 (BRAND NEW from the developer) plus shipping.
That aint much at all for what you get.
Some are more expensive from $6.50 to $7.95, but they too (IMO) are cheap at that price.

And you can find copies on E-Bay, but they seem to be (very often) priced higher than from the original source.

The Box Set will run higher than when first available as many folks want copies and they dont seem to come up often enough to satisfy the market.

Warning: Once you join the guild you can never go back. 8)

My personal favorite is Thieves Guild #3, The Duke's Grand Ball.

Worth it for Secrets alone.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . gummy bears.

New from Tadashi would be $34, so that's the benchmark, I guess.
