My bidnips didn't even go off, I was so low.  May be time to email pied piper and request those reprints...

More likely to have them release them in PDF form.
Lots of people waiting to spend money with PPP. All those who already own but don't want to use, and all those who want to play but can't get copies. Don't think PPP are that focussed on earning money though.

Quite a few vintage figures - worth the BIN?




He's come down from $599.00 to $499.00 to $425.00.  I would predict someone will take it at $325.00.  Just my opinion.  8)

Nothing all that rare.  I've swept up bigger lots with better stuff for less than $100.  He's dreaming if he thinks anyone in their right mind would cough up $425.

I have the first (Skeleton) one also (Two copies actually) but was never able to grab a copy of Tower of Blood.
Still, I was bidding on both of them, and early on I had set my high bid at $46.64 on the Tower of Blood....
I am not surprised Tower went higher though.

Down to $399.00.  I'll say one thing, the seller is dropping the price pretty fast.  Still too high IMO. 8)

I'm another one who has 2 copies of CotSK, only one of Tower of Blood.
PPP website states that Tower of Blood is expected to have a reprint, whereas CotSK is only expected to get PDF treatment.  
Presumably they both had similar print runs, so is it just that a few people are sitting on large numbers of Tower of Blood, so there are far fewer of these about?

CotSK - 500 copies plus Runics, Author's and Comp' copies (550 or so physical prints)
ToB - 350 copies plus Runics, Author's and Comp' copies (400 or so physical prints)
If memory serves.

Agreed.

There was a more complete set of D&D minis that sold a few months(?) ago that sold for around $500.00...

There is a CotSK Runic on the ebay UK site that is up for £49.99 BIN! Seems a bit strong when the one here went for $32.  Does the 'Runic' make any difference or is the seller just trying his luck?  :?

Runic doesn't equal numbered, IIRC.  It had something to do with the level of support for the project, I believe, or the order in which you placed your pre-order.

I don't think that the one that islestrike sold was a runic copy.
There were only 26 runic copies available. The rest of the CotSK was a signed & numbered limited edition.
The runics sold for more and seemed to be a way for PPP to get some money up front to cover printing costs.

The Runic versions were the ones sold first and also part of the "Green Dragon" level donation program?  I believe a donation of $20?

I am quite certain that Runic copies of SOME of the PPP Adventures were limited to 26 copies. Those were not numbered, but lettered... A through Z...
Other limited edition prints of some PPP Adventures were numbered....
I have seen SOME Runic Adventures with Letters instead of numbers and I have some Limited Edtiion Adventures that are Numbered and signed.
I also have some other Modules from PPP that had print runs of 500, that are also unmbered but not signed.

I did not get involved in the Donation / Promotional offers they had though.
