I've had a 3" long under-the-bed storage bin with miscellaneous rpg stuff in it for a few years. My mom found it at a garage sale for probably $5 or $10, so she gave it to me the next time we visited. I previously sold the Traveller modules out of it, because they were in the best condition of the stuff it contained, and also because - at that point - I had very little experience with understanding the value & collectibility of older D&D stuff. At the time, web & ebay searches didn't give me much idea of the value of the rest of the stuff. So I stashed it away at home.

I recently moved it to my office at work, and I just had a chance to dig through it at lunch. I found some neat surprises:

- Nanorien Stones w/blue cover. The cover is damaged, but serviceable. The module itself is a bit worn, but likely still in collectable condition.

- The Black Tower by Midkemia Press, including the map. As usual, the map and module are worn around the edges, but also still in collectable condition.

- Tegel Manor. 4th print, quite worn, with detaching cover.

- City State of the Invincible Overlord. Not sure if this is complete. Maps appear to be present.

- Binder of Harn stuff, with Harndex and various other bits. This is going to take some research to figure out what's what.

- D&D Portfolio - Ambush Bend. Somewhat worn, somebody might like it for their collection.

- City State of the World Emperor, including maps. Not sure if everything is present, and it's somewhat worn.

- Some Judge's Guild Traveller stuff that I haven't had time to research.

- Starfleet Battles stuff.

...and a few other bits & pieces. Neat!

I know I'd be interested in some of that stuff, if just to see it.

The Harn material I may be interested in.

I'm not sure what I'm going to keep yet. I want to carefully flip through some of it to see whether I like any of them enough to start collecting their companions.

The rest will go onto ebay in a week or two.
