Personally JG I would say yes to the boxed set City of Brass being collectible. I've seen a copy and it's very nice, as well as being criminally undersupported and spotty distribution.

It was the last Necromancer Games product released through White Wolf so that's the reason.  White Wolf got out of the Sword and Sorcery line that year.

Rather than consider it only one small part of a whole, I've been instead considering it as a completed product....a self contained 1-5th level adventure.  As written, CZ can provide many sessions of fun as is, without any further development.

no words to rob?? it is still the same castle

Sadly, I brought my stock in from the US (not thinking it would land here through the distribution channels), so my unit price ended up higher than most. I need these to become atleast uncommon and sought after to break even. But 3-5 years, I think I'm onto a winner, and I bet I'm not the only one who's bought some to stash away.

If Rob could come out with more than one level every 3-4 years, I'd give him more props. Bottle City is a nice product; but Rob cannot be counted on to ever come out with another level on any regular basis (or, ever again).  That being said, his contributions would be immeasurable towards telling the history of the Castle.

was what meant no encouragement = little to no chance of more. only because people like grodog got in touch that bottle city + others printed at all

And if you are still on the fence, here is a great deal for this box set ($29.80 plus $4.49 US shipping)




** expired eBay auction **




I've ordered two from this seller and both arrived promptly and were well packaged.  Hurry now, only 2 left at this price.



Enjoy :)


Hello Mrs. Cleaver, Theodore.

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

And 3 more in yet another auction (he had two auctions for 3 sets each), although I just bought 2 from that auction, so now both only have 1 set each. :-)

I ended up buying 3 copies - 2 from the initial smarmy post and one from a more recent auction.  3 fit into a Flat Rate Box so I figured that would be a good number.

Mars, I asked about international shipping... and haven't heard back -  I guess they're selling so fast, who's got the time  :lol:

Were you able to connect with the seller before your purchase?

I didn't get in contact before the auction.  I actually thought that someone here mentioned this seller would ship worldwide but now I think that was for FRPGames and not this seller.  This seller uses a checkout system that then gives an error for shipping to Canada because no such shipping quote is entered.  So the seller then puts one in manually.  He said he would ship them for me but that he normally doesn't do international.

Even after the auction, I was asking about buying 1 more and putting it in the same box, etc and never heard back about that either - his communication is not so good.

All,

If I can help out anyone with shipping/forwarding on this UW boxed set to Canada or overseas, please let me know.  I am only too happy to help out my Acaeum brothers and sisters.

Happy New Year!  :D
