A good indicator is the price of DCC#35 the Gazetteer. You get two small size adventures and two gazetteer books and the maps. I'm not sure how many people are using the DCC line in the Goodman game world, but the Gazetteer has jumped to over a $100 and is difficult to find.

DCC#51 is a much larger set. 4 monstermodule size adventures are included. I think DCC#51 is going to be something akin to Rapan Athak reloaded rather than the worlds largest (and worst by some accounts) Dungeon.

But at $50 it is really an excellent price.



IMO Jason is right. Quality will win out; which is why Rappan Athuk has gone up, and World's Largest Bore hasn't.  The entire DCC line has a pretty good rep and I would get these while they are still cheap.

I've just received a brand new copy of the GenCon 2006 12.5  :D.  With that safely stashed away what are the other rares from the DDC set?  Any help would be gratefully accepted.

I'm down to just needing the 3.5 but didn't have the bucks to make Bombadil a reasonable offer.

No, I actually need the #30 boxed set too.

What about Saga of the Witch Queen, the flipbook and the Rat King adventure? Soon to be sold out I am certain.

As far as sold out from Goodman games (besides what has already been mentiond) the list is:
DCC#0
DCC#1
DCC#3
DCC#16
DCC#18
DCC#20
DCC#22
DCC#31
DCC#52 (Though I have heard that some more are on their way).

DCC#52 seems to have had a low print run. It is also the last before the switch to 4e and the horrendous new cover style.

As far as DCC #52 goes, what storage bags are you using for this book?  The Ultra Pro Comic Series Magazine Size Bags that I have been using work well for the small page count modules but don't seem to do the trick for this guy.  (These poly bags are listed for magazines up to 8 3/4 x 11.)  Actually, I have quite a few of the thicker modules and booklets (100+ pages) that could use a good storage bag.  Any suggestions?

Thanks.


Hello Mrs. Cleaver, Theodore.

Gee, Mrs. Cleaver ... That certainly is a lovely dress.

The next size I had on hand was Life Magazine size, which you need to fold over to fit. But I have a bunch of old office supplies and tend to use manila envelopes. I have the old string tie ones. You have to watch out for the ones with the metal clips because they are secured to the envelope with a hooked end.

DCC#3.5 The Haunted Lighthouse - $300+
3E Printed once and with no PDF available or planned due to copyright issues (unless you know where to look)

DCC#12.5 1E The Crypt of the Heretics - $50+
Special Edition with a yellow border around the cover
1E Available in PDF form from all major outlets

DCC#17.5 War of the Witch Queen - $50+
3.5E Available in PDF form from all major outlets

DCC#20.5 The Mask of Death - $100+
3.5E Printed once and with no PDF available or planned due to copyright issues (unless you know where to look)

DCC#30 Vault of the Dragon Kings Tournament Pack - $80+
A special boxed set containing DM and Player Tournament Packs and 12 Miniatures
3.5E Available in PDF form (look for both the DCC#30 and DCC#30.5 downloads) from all major outlets

Saga of the Rat King (Gencon Edition)
Probably gonna be a big player with value rising quickly over the next 12 months. Expect it to reach $100+, but much cheaper to buy the NKG Logo version if you're not interested in investments as these will be stay cheap as chips.

All the other DCCs
Momentary anomilies in the flow of product. Aunoch/Black Pearl - Probably a slow steady rise in value, but nothing worth getting out of bed for. I would expect DCC#52 to hold it's price, maybe even gain a little value, but nothing spectacular. I'd still expect to be able to buy them a year from now at a moderate price. Same with Castle Whiterock. I'd expect to be able to pick up copies for cover price, as there should be enough demand for it to maintain it's value, but nothing in either quality or substance that would warrant a high price tag.

Do you mean cover price for DCC#51 or do you mean the $50 sale price? Remember cover price on this bad boy is $100.

I think we'll see this return to cover price in NM condition fairly quickly, so buying cheap now could be a good quick proffit if you can keep your shipping low.

I think there will be a lot of interest in Castle Zagyg if TLG get their fingers out of their respective recepticles, and Whiterock may end up playing second fiddle to what seems to be destined to be the next Rappan Atuck Reloaded (Castle Zagyg). To say CZ may be the next RAR is a little bit of a misnomer, because it was the lore of Greyhawk that built the expectation for what the megadungeon genre could be, but Rappan Athuk was the first product to truely deliver. So unfortunately CZ will has high standards to meet, but it has the source material and decades of development to deliver on it.

Castle Whiterock however tries hard but cannot hold it's own against the big boys, and I have put that down to it being a product designed purely to fit the genre with no gameplay or development experience to produce a truely rounded product. And on that basis, whilst it holds it's head above the likes of Worlds Worst Dungeon, it will not likely be covetted by those seeking the quality of dungeneering experience that EGG spent years developing.

So, yes. I expect it will hover for many years between $80 and $100 after the dust of the Great Goodman Games Giveaway has settles, but Rappan Athuk Reloaded and probably Castle Zagyg (provided we get more han one dungeon level) are destined to soar.

Indeedy, but it's a print run junky thing. I'd really be interested to watch those who must have a 1st printing battle over a Gencon #12.5 on eBay. Could be interesting.
Aside... Why'd you give up the tigers?

Mayhaps we will see a true 1st DCC#12.5 1E surface on eBay and be able to watch the furore. I could see it hitting $100+ with publicity and the right questions being asked of the seller.

Don't forget the convention only version of DCC #0...do these ever even go on sale, or are they mistaken for the "regular" #0 too often? They are at least as rare as any other convention only module.

Ah but it was seen:




** expired eBay auction **

What do people think the Bookmark of Doom is worth?  I found one in a 1st DCC#10 from Aaron.



Cheers!

I could sell a DCC#12.5 1E The Crypt of the Heretics 1st print, but I'm not certain I really want to go through Ebay to do it.
