Going back to the AEG brochures, are these worth their money then?

Interestingly, I have sold probably 30 or 40 of these things and never read even one of them.  I've flipped through them and they look alright.  Apparently some people are interested in them, as mine always catch some attention, but they never sell for much.  I'm guessing the deal offered is fair, but isn't a steal.  If you've never seen 'em, they might be worth a look.  Frankly, I found many of the one page dungeons (that you can download for free) worthwhile, if you are looking for one shot/night adventures.   8)


Truth is worth finding and life is too short to work for money.

thanks, I was half tempted on those books/brochures, but as you say, those one page dungeons are actually really good too so may stick with them  :)


EDIT - and sold within 20 minutes of me showing them on here!  :lol:   I'll definitely stick with the one pagers now then...

Found the free pdf, so having a look through that first, thanks again

These mini-modules might well be future rares....probably two to four of them more rare than the others.

I think they are generally sold at fair prices on Ebay.

DCC #35 Gazetteer of the Known Realm.


** expired eBay auction **


Don't know if this is a good price or not, but it seems to be in greater demand that the other boxed sets, and is probably far more useful if you use that campaign setting.

If it had still been shrinkwrapped the price would have been great.  As it is already opened I'd say the price is a bit on the high side.  However, it is tax return time so I'm sure someone will pick it up for the $100.

So this item is one that requires shrink to maintain it's value? Curious. I realise there is mention of damaged/scuffed corners, but being reletively new and also out of print, I would have expected the shrinkwrap to have had a negligable influence on price. Much like Rappan Athuk Reloaded or Wilderlands of High Fantasy hold their values despite missing the shrinkwraps.

I agree.
Around Christmas, I bought an nm copy of DCC#35 for $56 + $15 s&h + $8 for an nm Saga o/t Dragon Cult totalling $79 approx from the same seller, which I consider to be a fair buy. There was no shrink on either boxed set. I guess for me it's a collector's gut check on a product shift in GG's history (which I think will increase in value).

I've purchased a no-shrink nm copy of DCC#35 for less than cover with the same line of reasoning--no regrets.

I paid nearly $92 for a Minty shrink wrapped copy of DCC 35.
Also was able to get one for $46.... a few months later though it was slightly dinged.

World's Largest Dungeon from AEG



$49.99 with free shipping.  You could do a lot worse than this offer.



I understand that there are some groups who have gamed through significant portions of this mega dungeon.



It is an interesting read.  The authors get a fairly good theme going.  It is certainly a chunk of gaming history.

D1 Tomb of Abysthor for $31.00 total (including $3.50 shipping).  This is a fairly good offer if you have not tracked one down yet.

Gary Gygax's Hall of Many Panes boxed set.



The seller has knocked the price down to $14.99 including shipping.



This set is a bundle of really interesting/wierd/useful/strange/fun ideas by the Dungeon Master himself.



Yes, it is designed for Lejendary Adventures, but it can be plugged in to any system if you have half a brain.



The seller has eight of these on hand (as I type).  If you are a Gygax loyalist, or if you collect with an eye for future value, snapping up a brand new copy at this price sounds would probably be a good move.



(One caveat...I have not searched around for a better deal.  That should take you only a second before you hit the Buy-It-Now button.)

OK, this seller pissed me off a bit because his listing link took me to his store rather than to the item I clicked on.



But, this is the Mongoose hardback, The Drow War 3:  The Darkest Hour, for $8.66 plus $4 shipping.

I've never seen this module before.  Anyone know about it?



The shipping is a bit high.
