For the discerning collector, any idea which of the Murder At Miskatonic's is rarer?



The normal version:

Or the misprinted cover with the extra righthand side border line:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0264696633



I picked up both locally at the same store so I'm really not sure.

The ones I saw were primarily the misprinted cover as well... neat.


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

Noble Knight is having "Part Deux" of Free RPG Day on July 8.  The terms are different this time around, so read carefully.
Free RPG Day - Part Deux!!! - 7/1/2008
Due to canceled orders and an unexpected surplus of several items we will be posting a further selection of previously sold out FREE RPG DAY items Tuesday July 8th! Supply is quite limited although we do expect to have a decent amount of the most in demand items available again for a short time! Important note: Regular customers are top priority to us here at NKG!! If you are a regular customer who had previously asked for these items and were unable to get them you should email [email protected] AS SOON AS POSSIBLE - if you place an order that we can ship one of these with we will include an item from the list below in it for you at no charge (assuming you had not already gotten them...)! The rules for FRPGD this time out are a little different from last time to prevent chaos: Any order - 1 item your choice (limited to one time only). Want more then 1 item? For every $50 spent you can include an additional item (no duplicates at any time).


So here's what was popular:
Items to be reposted include:

Columbia Games - Harn - Field of Daisies - Quickstart Rules w/Adventure
Fiery Dragon Productions - Iron Heroes - Bloodwood - Setting Guide
Exile Game Studio - Hollow Earth Expedition - Quickstart Rules w/Adventure
Goodman Games - Dungeon Crawl Classics (4th Edition) - Punjar - The Tarnished Jewel - Gazetteer
Green Ronin - A Song of Ice and Fire Roleplaying - Quickstart Rules w/Adventure
Troll Lord Games - Castles & Crusades - Dwarven Glory II - Quickstart Rules w/Adventure
Troll Lord Games - Starsiege: Event Horizon - Quick Start Rules
Wizards of the Coast - D&D 4th Edition - Treasure of Talon Pass - Module w/Mini & Tile
Margaret Weis Productions - Castlemourn - Cortex System Quickstart Rules
Paizo Publishing - Pathfinder Modules - Revenge of the Kobold King - Module


Based upon what I saw on Free RPG Day, I am not surprised to see that they have leftovers of the Heirs to Olympia, Traveller, and Hunter: The Vigil.
And these items are still available - TAKE WHATEVER YOU'D LIKE! (limit quantity to max 2 each)

Countess Games - Heirs to Olympia - Quickstart Rules w/Adventure
Flying Buffalo - Tunnels & Trolls - Quickstart Rules w/Adventure
The Cabil - Cardstock Scenery Software - Terrain on the Spot - Fold-Up Scenery
Skirmisher Publishing - Cthulhu Live (3rd Edition) - Murder at Miskatonic - Scenario
Mongoose Publishing - Traveller - Book 0 - An Introduction to Traveller - Quickstart Rules
White Wolf Publishing - Hunter: The Vigil - Quickstart Rules w/Adventure

Sorry, that just makes me happy. :)


It is interesting that Harn would be popular as I hear it is consistently loved and reviled. Maybe that's what makes it so cool? I didn't even know there was a Harn item. :( Anyone have one?


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

I grabbed the Harn item.  I think it was one of the items in which stores only received 3 copies.  It is also one of the thickest items at about 50+ pages.

I grabbed the Harn item as well.  Seemed like a no-brainer considering most everything else was 8-12 pages and black and white.  :wink:



This seller is dumping all of his Free RPG Day items into one lot.  It doesnt contain everything but about 75% of them.  He also has two other lots with the mini and dungeon tiles.



eBay listings

The value of the Talon Pass Triad is dropping lower, though it is still not worthless:



03-AUG - Talon Pass + map tile + mini sold for $20.50 + $5.50 s/h:

. . .  
** expired/removed eBay auction **




27-JUL - $33.00 + $5.00 s/h:

. . .  
** expired/removed eBay auction **




27-JUL - 6 hours earlier at $40.00 + 5.50 s/h:

. . .  
** expired/removed eBay auction **




(I may update this post with future auction results.)
