I recall far more copies of Wraith Overlord in the shrinkwrap than out.

This item seems to have sat on store shelves until they went under.

Which is a shame, because it's a damn fine product. Deffinately in my top 10 JG products.

I agree with this.
Wraith Overlord is a Fine product in SW or not.

Probably Better when not SWed since its easier to use for game play that way. :lol:

I like the concept of Wraith Overlord and I like the maps.

The only thing it's missing is....a wraith overlord.

Maybe it's a simile. Maybe 'overlord' is being used to describe the tome. A play on words that works with CSIO. 'Wraith Overlord' could be read as 'book of great power, of the dead', all be it a little anthropomorphic.
Still, at least if you get it SW you know you have the map. Too many copies have the map missing. That's one of the things I like about the NG 3E release; CSIO and WO in one big tome of hardcover goodness.

Perhaps Wraith Overlord refers to it being a "ghost" of the city above (CSIO), though it should have a wraith overlord to mirror the IO.

Here ya go.

The 2nd Edition box set, sans the box itself.

Starting at $19.99, BIN of $29.99

Much lower price than the ones mentioned above and (I think) the set includes all but the box itself.

Hold out for the box.  That is a $20 item, period.

Wow, I've been putting off listing a ton of Traveller stuff because I didn't think there was any money in it. Just goes to show, you never know.

Remember, price asked is not price sold for...

I'm new to looking at Traveller stuff, but I assume this lot is more like a $40 purchase.

The seller would be lucky to get that.

A bunch of adventures like this doesn't come along too often.

Yes, this is a correct statement.  Most of the Traveller adventures I see only have one price tag on them.  These are of the "three tag" variety.  :roll:

There are price labels on most of them (it will make you weep when you see how little I got them for).


I doubt anyone will ever weep or even see those prices.
The pictures are not clear enough and NO ONE is going to buy them even at his low starting price of just $16.88 per book. :lol:
