His feedback of 2 might hurt him.  Interesting though on how many copies been brought out lately.  Should also be interesting if the high price can be maintained or if this surge of sellers outweighs buyers.



The Quickstart Rules probably don't add much - completists probably already have it and CZ too; others may not care so much.  More of a little bonus than adding real value that will increase ones bid.



The charity bit would probably increase my bid a few dollars.

My best guess is that the majority of 26 watchers are Acaeum members.  Collectors, speculators, and resellers who read the Acaeum make up the rest of the watchers.  Who else cares what the market is for these things?  Castle Zagyg:Upper Works doesn't mean anything to most gamers, so I don't see a random RPGer watching this item.

Nine days are left in my auction, and I imagine other copies will show up that end sooner than next Sunday night in the U.S.  For example, here's an opened copy with a BIN of $149.99 [Edit:  Sorry.  Not a BIN]:

How quickly that opened copy sells will reflect the demand for unshrunk copies.  My auction is different from other auctions, since my auction is for a srhinkwrapped copy and includes the 2007 C&C Quick Start Rules.  Does the Quick Start add $5 or $10, or does it add nothing?  Does giving to a charity affect the final price?  FWIW, 25% is going to the Christian Children's Fund.




I'm sorry - I should have thrown a :) in there.  What I was trying to say is that I imagine many of us are interested in how your auction does, because as we see more of these sell, we might learn if prices are level or trending up/down.  I certainly wish you plenty of luck!



Side note - does anyone know if the Zagyg material in those Quick Start Rules appears anywhere else?  I thought that I read it was also in one of the supplements, but now I don't recall for sure.

Mouths of Madness, the CZ adventure, does appear elsewhere -- it is not unique to the Quick Start rules.

No offense taken and certainly no need for you to apologize or explain.

I just re-read my previous post.  Ummm, I didn't intend my response to come off as strongly as it may read.  I wasn't posting with a smarmy or smart-ass tone; I was posting with a  head-scratching "hmmm . . . well . . . who would be watching the auction?" tone.

The Castle Zagyg section is entitled Castle Zagyg: The Workhouse of Yggsburgh Town.  The Quick Start says "Treated briefly in Castle Zagyg Vol. 1, Yggsburgh by Gary Gygax, this comprehensive version of the encounter area is drawn directly from the forthcoming module, Yggsburgh Town: Town Halls District from Troll Lord Games."

I was blissfully unaware that there was a universal D6 system



I think I might try and develop a D4 system.

The d6 system was one of West End Games' house systems.  Used in Ghostbusters and their version of Star Wars, for example.

That's the 1996 book, which was the first attempt to release it as a generic system and is really really bare-bones -- so much so that I'm not even certain the book is worth it from a gamer standpoint.

Curious as to how many people are watching this lot?




** expired eBay auction **




It contains a copy of Inferno and also a copy of The Trap Manual by Varanae.

The d6 system was also released in a slipcased set of books (Adventure, Fantasy, and Space) and had other supplements, including a DM screen.

Here's a link to the publishing history of the d6 system:

Those are the latter post-bankruptcy books, are they not?  I've flipped through some of them and, though they're still very bare-bones and kinda bland, they actually seem to have enough details on the different genres to be usable.
