I've seen this box more often than some of the Glorantha ones, and even they weren't going for this much. :roll:

I've seen some stupid MERP prices before but these are downright retarded:



eBay listings



I have no idea how the seller came to use these off-the-wall prices.  Court of Ardor for $203.81?  They have it priced higher than the shrinkwrapped Dol Guldur, Lake Town, and Northern Waste.



Makes no sense whatsoever.  :?

It could be that because the seller is based in Canada the prices are the result of the exchange rate (Canada Dollar vs US Dollar)...

The Canadian and American dollars are close to a 1:1 exchange rate.

Gah . . . I clicked on one of the auctions to see eBay's exchange rate, and the estimated exchange rate has the Canadian dollar coming out on top.   8O

Yep, the canucklebuck is worth just a bit more.  I posted all of my auctions in USD but are slightly less in CAD too.

Is this one of the rare 7th Sea sourcebooks, or did someone mistake it for one?

They often go for around $75 each.  Guess it's the most desirable 7th sea sourcebook.

It is usually hard to find.  It went out of print first and hard to find so prices for it went up.  I used to see auctions where this one would top $100.  The other book that could get $60+ was book 3 Montaigne which also went out of print but if you searched around at various gamestores you could still find them in stock.

Not surprising that madmaksid would pay that much money for a supplement that is in that poor of condition.  What an idiot.  :?



Course, not nearly as ridiculous as this:
