I still don't have one - is it interesting ?


Of course it's interesting---it's a Pagan CoC book :D  Actually, I found GD to be one of Pagan's best books:  they were at their height, and Tynes was still manning the ship (not that Scott, Dennis, et al, don't do a good job; Tynes and Barber and Reynolds were the heart of Pagan for me).

Demonlord from Dwarfstar Games/Heritage USA:

Seller says that the box is beat up but honestly it doesnt look all that bad to me.  Pretty hard to find game and I would be bidding on it myself if I thought I could afford it right now.  :cry:

Yeah, that's not too bad for the notorious Dwarfstar line ... worst boxes ev-ar. That one appears to be in one piece, at least, which isn't always the case.

Also, this seller has been mentioned a few times now over the past couple of days, and for good reason ... be sure to hit "view seller's other items" if you're in a buying mood. He's got lots of interesting stuff heading out the door in the next couple of days.

Oh I had definitely done that already.  All the other pertinent stuff had already been posted, otherwise I probably would have mentioned it.  :D

Interesting, indeed. If only I had not just spent too much on other things... maybe I'll get paid soon.

Oh, what you guys find interesting cracks me up sometimes. Guess we have a different idea of what "interesting" is. :)

You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

It was losing a bid for that last summer which got me into collecting RQ. Now I have everything published before the boxed sets.

Ooooh.  It has the dust-jacket.

Most of the ones I've seen lately have been missing that.

Yet another 1st ed. RQ book. Has the sale of the first ever copy started a flood? I was content with a NM 2nd ed. bought from bclarkie, but maybe I'll actually end up owning one of these as well. Gotta love those 70s sepia tones.

Here is another one in the US:

Are the 4 CDM sets particularly valuable? Or quite common?

I think I would say that the CDM sets are uncommon to rare.  By no means are they always up but a number do show up every year.  CDM 2 is probably the rarest and I would classify it as rare.

As I think I've said a number of times, these boxed set were also later made into the Doomstones books for Warhammer.  They are also very nice nonTSR items - good ideas, good adventures, etc.

As far as pricing goes, I would say CDM 5 is most valuable then CDM 2.  The other 3 go for less.  They often go unnoticed so their price can be cheap.

For anyone interested in the story of how the CDM series later became published by Games Workshop for Warhammer and what the changes were, here is an article from Warpstone:
