But he didn't because he knew someone else was going to be buying a bunch for people on here :wink:

That is true I knew Shane was buying a load for the forum regulars so I did abstain from buying a huge amount. I did buy a few extras (2 for me and 2 for friends back here) and I just traded one to an Acaeum member 5 minutes ago.

BTW, one of the War of the Witch Queen 17.5 just went for a nice amount on Ebay:




** expired eBay auction **




I wonder if this one is one of the rarest, because I only found out about it through perusing their site one day, ordered a few, then the nexttime I looked it's gone.  Didn't seem like they advertised it very much....I'm pretty sure I resold a couple of copies for $15-$20 at that time!!!! :x

So there has to be a lesson here.  

This one remained unsold at $9.99

but was then relisted at a starting price

of $5.99 and is now climbing upwards...

I would pay about $25 for one...but I think they are worth at least $50, and the sky is the limit on future worth ($100 by next year?).  Nice investment item if you are thinking about it....

No kidding...the one Ian purchased from me for $50 turned out to be quite the bargain. I have another up now, as before curious to see what will happen, but instead of $50 it's listed at $145 I believe...interesting to see if anyone bites at it, a week ago I would have thought $100 outrageous...

Looks like 2nd print 1E conversion of DCC12.5 is available as a download...

http://www.rpgnow.com/product_info.php?products_id=20655&

I wonder how that will affect the market value?
I'll be puting a copy on eBay shortly, but no rush 'cos no=one buys anything over the next week or so, and our postal service is lousy until the start of January.


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

There is a 25% discount for Goodman products on RPGNow.  The discount lasts until Dec. 31.   FYI

Goodman Games downloads on RPGNow are some of the best PDFs I've seen. They are produced directly from the original DTP program, and are not scanned. They are also supplied at present with no inbuilt security (DRM) and complete with optical character recognition enabled.

I, for one, prefer that the back page is at the back of the PDF. I don't mind moving the maps on the inner leaf of the back page to the front, but I like to keep the colour back cover at the back. With no security on these PDFs I can move pages around, export the maps as bitmaps for manipulation, joining, resizing and printing, and I can copy and paste text, clipart and players handouts.

I've got to congradulate Goodman Games for not disabling the usefullness of the PDF format, and trusting their buyers not to redistribute the PDFs. After all there isn't even a watermark burnt into it. I for one will continue to buy my DCC collection in PDF format.

Thanks for the info Ian...knowing this, I think I will also purchase some Goodman Games pdfs that I was thinking about converting to 2nd edition, since they are easier to work with that way.

I know it is unlikely for many reasons...but a pdf file included with each paper and ink publication would save lots of wear on my collectibles.

Was there a reason this stayed so low?
