Ya, that was ungreased rape. Kobold is the rarest of the folders.

Actually, Kobold Hal is reputedly far rarer than Kobold Hall, so it's worse than you had imagined.

Not to rub it in, but you know what Darwin said...

By the way, which number was it?


Let mirth prevail!

It was #268.  Let's face I am not going to say I don't think I didn't get a good deal, I did get a good deal, but were not talking about a $1,000 item here.  The folder is actually pretty rough and its also got a fairly large blue ink stamp on the title page.  It's probably also worth noting that I had nothing to do with the price that was set, I just saw it and snagged it.  I suspect the price was set based on the yellow foldered Beastmaker Mountain that tdewey was selling around the same time that only went in the $70 range, but I could be mistaken on that. I am sure he can either confirm or deny it.   

Honestly, If I would would dump it back onto Ebay right now, I'd expect to get somewhere around $150 to $200 for it, which again makes it a good deal, but nothing earth shattering.  I have both seen and gotten better deals on many other items.  :)

well i have to say good one to BC on this. any seller who doesnt research things first, well, its hardly the buyers fault?

BC did nothing wrong. in fact, if he hadnt pillaged the BIN, i would have :)

tough luck to the seller really. lesson to be learnt?

Just face it... if you put up a BIN, bclarkie will get it. Therefore, never list anything as a BIN. Ever.


Those who can, don't. Those who should not, do.

Lol, believe me, I was not trying to put any blame on bclarkie. I think he is a very nice person at least from the email conversations I have had with him. My comment was more just of an "man you are an idiot comment pointed solely in my own direction". If anyone or especially if you bclarkie read my post as a slam against you I apologize because that was not my intention at all. I was fairly new to the listing process and the only research I did on the item was watching one other auction for a Role Aids folderr module. I saw it sell for about $60 and priced by BIN right above that. Again, if you took my post as anything against you it was not that at all. Sorry :(

I was going through some old Mayfair catalogs and thought I would point out that Fez, Beastmaker Mountain and Nanorian Stones were still for sale in the 1983 catalog.  In 1984 is states that they were sold out.  They have a picture showing the 5 folders and what looks to be the Kobold Hall and Blasted Lands but they aren't listed so they were probably already sold out.

Questio. I was looking through my small Mayfair / Role Aids collection and just wondering. Are there any sites that give a full product and printing list? Or does this thread contain about as much info as I'll find anywhere. When I collect lines of items, I like to make out a list of all products and printings and then cross them off as I acquire them.

Thanks for that! The coverage seems exhaustive. Egad, I've used that site many times but never noticed the Role Aids link. I think I need my eyes checked!

...and IIRC at the mayfair it is possible to order several of the products listed over there (or this was possible in 2007 at least!)...

From what I can see, the five foldered tourney dungeons; Fez I, Nanorien Stones, Beastmaker Mountain, Blasted Lands, and Kobold Hall, are the rarities. Fez I appears to be the most common. Nanorien Stones crops up quite often, and Beastmaker Mountain, Blasted Lands and Kobold Hall are pretty rare. Beastmaker Mountain is also great to play, and the good news is they are all still fairley cheap for rarities (you should still be able to pick up a decent Blasted Lands or Kobold Hall for under $150).

Of the rest of the saddle stitched and perfect bound Role Aids products, Wang T'sen (or whatever the hell it's called), seems a little less common than the rest, and The Keep is a fairly interesting module to play, but none are particularily rare. Most sell for below $5 a pop.
