What about Wilderlands? That one will be hard for me to not open.  How low was the print run?  Will it have value even unshrinked ?

What about NG's Caverns of Thracia, City State of the Invincible Overlord ?


Hope to update the prices in early April, but the box set value wise is $70, CSIO $30.

The Player's Guide to the Wilderlands & The Caverns of Thracia had a print run of 2500.  City State of the Invincible Overlord & Wilderlands of High Fantasy Box Set had print runs of 2000.  All 4 are quality products, but for value its only the box set atm, and then not overly much (Only 1 this year has sold above retail.)

FWIW, I've seen NG CoTs selling for $25-40 over the past 6 months, but I haven't checked recently.

I've been after a Wilderlands boxset for a while now... seen a few BINs at $69.95, but with International shipping costs what they are, haven't yet hit the button... still hoping to find one in a forgotten corner of some local gaming shop, though no luck yet...    :?

Keep looking - you can still sometimes get lucky.  I picked up my copy from a local used bookstore (Casablanca) for $30.  Funny thing with that purchase was that they had the books out for sale for $40 with a note to say the box and maps were behind the counter.  Then after a month, the box and maps showed up separately for sale for $30.  Some employee found it behind the desk and put it out for sale - it took a bit to convince them that the two bundles belonged together.

Both are worth having because they are damned fine pieces of work, but I'm happy to settle for the PDF for my own personal use. Only time will tell how Thracia does/

Just my 2c.


How much is the retail on CSIO, $ 35 right?

A few potential 3/3.5 collectibles ended recently:



Tomb of Abysthor:


** expired eBay auction **




CSIO:


** expired eBay auction **




Rappan Athuk Reloaded:


** expired eBay auction **




The Tomb of Abysthor sold for quite a bit less than the few BIN's I have seen recently.  I am a bit surprised that the RAR didnt go for more than that though.

Is the New Caverns of Thracia worth anything?  A local store here has two for 50% off

Not really..last one sold for around $14.  Good module though, just not profitable reseller wise.

LOL. With RAR, if the seller had any brains they could probably have got double that. No reason not to hit $180-200 with a NM copy of RAR.

I agree that this should have gone for more than the end price.  But what else could the seller have done?  The listing looks fine to me.

The seller probably could have listed it with a BIN fixed price auction instead of open auction.

That said, maybe it is about time we started a list of what he board considers to be rare non-TSR. I am looking at a long overdue update to Aftergow2.com, and one of the things I think is missing there is an indication of rarity and value (auction history).

To resurrect an old favorite thread.

When do you suppose one should sell these d20 rares? And how? As an auction or a high BIN ?

I have done some research using bookfinder.com which listed a few RARs and Wilderlands boxes at 155 euro and when i click there' none available. I conclude that someone bought at that price.

Unfortunately they don't pop up on ebay all too often...

I have both RAR and Wilderlands in Mint if someone wants them. But if you're looking to sell, this is not the time. Prices are low right accross the board with very few exceptions. If you're looking to make money selling ATM, 'zines' are selling well. If you're sitting on RAR and Wilderlands, I'd sit on them for another six months to a year. You just cannot find buyers at a good price at the moment.

Ian is right.

I predict both RAR, Wilderlands, and perhaps a few items like The Witchfire Trilogy HB are going to go way, way up when the recession recedes. I'll keep ahold of these and bide my time.

I can't believe the prices for the Iron Kingdoms stuff.  Were these low print runs or just such a popular campaign product no 3.x players want to let them go?  Granted "steampunk" doesn't appeal to me but seeing some of the prices on Ebay and Amazon I'm thinking I should scarf some if I see them "on the cheap." 8O

Very good writing/art and only one printing per book.  I'd say popular in that I've seen it mentioned outside of Privateer Press forums, but then nothing like other companies.  I like the books and won't be letting them go.

There's a Witchfire hardback?
