That is high, but it is also unpunched (for the tiles). Maybe the figured are still on sprues, too. A pretty difficult box set to find, one I shamelessly still need myself.

At that price, I will shamelessly never get a copy.

That is nuts. A few months back I picked up a Talisman set and three of the expansion sets for about $100. I played it with the kids, but did not enjoy it. It is like playing D&D in a straightjacket with a partial lobotomy.

So when did these become so rare ? Or at least expensive.

The swordsman book has always been rare and expensive.  That's probably a bit high for the book now but I have seen then sell for $150 in the past.  $100 might be a more reasonable price now.

There are a few rare 7th Sea books that use to be great sellers - Pirate Nations when it became out of print would hit $100, Montaigne would get up to $75-$80, etc.

Thanks for the info Mark. Pirate Nations took me a while to find indeed.

I have the older stuff almost complete except for the Freiburg boxed set and the Erebus Cross part 2. The swashbuckling adventures books I didn't follow anymore but they are quite easy to find.

When Troll and Toad price items on Ebay, they are always expensive.  :lol:

The ONE copy I have had the past five years sold for $100, plus the buyer traded me a bunch of other 7th sea stuff (I had lowered my price because of that).  I've never seen these go cheap.

Anyone know if 7th Sea miniatures are worth anything?  I can't find any completed auctions.

I hope he didn't take it too personally.  I don't mean any harm but sometimes just go off.

I've been on edge the last couple of days.  I just bought the RPG contents of a game store and was needed to be on edge to negotiate properly :)  Hence the 7th Sea question.  In total there's probably about 2000 books and 2 big boxes of minis, etc etc.  I'm now the not so proud owner of a stack of White Wolf books that stands over 6 feet tall.

Mars, although I've never met you I have bought some wonderful things from you.  I do know you are a detriment to my bank account and you're really great to deal with!  No worries Willmark likes to argue so...

I am heading to the UK at the end of the summer.  Could probably manage to bring 20Kg along.
