So, if some of these came up how much would they likely go for (I don't have any, I want some).

I either have them or sold them last year. Not sure how much they would be. They are fairly rare, 1 or 2 a year.

Are these different from the reprints of Artifact and Monster cards offered by Emperors Choice?

As far as I can tell.  Emperor's Choice has republished everything Arduin that was available and some stuff that was not previously available.

Anyone notice that these reprints seem to be rather expensive?  $45 for the original three books.  $79.95 (and that's a SALE price) for all of the original grimoires, plus their new wannabe.  10.99 feach or individual grimoires IV through IX.

About the only thing I would think that keeps them in business is that 865-page monstrosity called "The World of Khaas" that they sell.

People who missed out on the original Arduin publications are buying from them.

In the next year (I presume) they are supposed to have a compilation of the four Arduin dungeons, with some bonus adventure material.  The price is supposed to be in the $35 ranges.

I would buy a World of Khass if I had a chance to get one at a reasonable price.

Contact and buy from the Dragontree Press people.  They have a deal with Emperor's Choice to continue publishing Arduin books...and they are nice people.

I bought my copies from Dragon Tree although I was also looking for the Dragon Tree editions not the EC ones.  I think they still sell both editions unless they are out of DT versions.

Since I have original printings of the first three books (the core system) I have no real need of any of the subsequent books from either company, though I would much rather deal with Dragon Tree Press than the company that (in my not so humble opinion) usurped control of Arduin from the rightful owners.

The later books are as quirky as the original trilogy.

I admit to being loyal to Dragontree as opposed to Emperor's Choice.

I am tempted to pick some of these up, but is there anyway to tell for sure whats original and whats reprinted.  I have some Arduin stuff that spans from what I can tell at least several different printings, but ius there anyway to tell the differences in printings for things like the monster & artifact cards?  :)
