I just spotted this.  Is it really rare or interesting?

It's another generic fantasy RPG from back in the day.  It's relatively rare and has not been considered very desirable in the past but who knows these days...

People bidding $139 for a game that other people did not even read.

Are we really to the point where rarity is the only factor in desireability?

I mean...some things are rare for a reason...because they sucked to begin with.  

Anyone want to try to bid my copy of Ironhoof Highlands away from me?

Wow, that's amazing.  
There are two versions, a softcover and a box set that includes a few miniatures.  I have the boxed version, and this auction was for the softcover, which perhaps is rarer?
I think I bought my box set in the shrinkwrap for about $8 ten years ago.

Yeah I bought mine in shrink for I think $20 and that was 4-5 years ago.

Mr. Shipley was a Good Guy and didn't post an alert about This One, since I was bidding.



Didn't help, tho; it skyrocketed again. Ah well...

Hm; $139, $128... gotta keep an eye out for one that's sneaking by cheap. ;>

It seems to be a hot item right now.  I deluded myself into thinking I had a shot at it as well :)  Malfrick raised the amount his was willing to spend on it significantly from the last one.

8O  8O  8O  8O  8O  and HOLY S*** :!:
I'm glad I got my boxset for cheap back in the day (think I may have to read it now)
Also I don't understand the gold shiny sticker in the corner, my book has it too but I dare say I'm not going to try and see what is under it now.

I was wondering about the sticker too.  The last two copies on Ebay had it as well.  From the image on Ian's website (that doesn't look like it has a sticker) it doesn't look like there is anything under it.

My original thoughts were that the sticker coverred the price disk printed on the original book. I know the book from the boxed set looks identical to the original edition of the book but has a sticker over the price disk, so I was thinking they were both boxed set books missing their boxed sets.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

No, but I swear I saw one on Ebay not to long ago that didn't sell.  Not sure if its been posted again.

I'm looking for a second edition of this one too - very hard to find.  Someone snagged the one Noble Knight had a few months ago before I could :(

I see Tim is on there as having one - he probably won't want to sell his copy.  Not sure about the other guy.
