I am inclined to say that the final prices were higher than normal based on the id's of the bidders.  But for these items it is kind of hard to gauge what a "fair" price is.  I think this is only the second or third time I have ever seen any of these items on Ebay.

By the way....does anyone know if the author is the same Carl Smith that wrote N2 The Forest Oracle?

I think those prices are fair.  All Adversary games items are very rare.  

That is the only second copy of Red Book of Nal and Sword & Shield that I have ever seen - I don't have these ones but I do have a pdf of Sword & Shield.

Asphodel Inn is slightly less rare since I have had 4 or 5 pass through my hands (and have seen 1 other copy on Ebay before).  I tracked down Carl a while back and bought the remainder of his old stock.  Yes it is the same Carl Smith as N2 - he also did some Pacesetter items too.

A near complete list of Adversary Games items is up on the Tome of Treasures (missing only 1 or 2 items):

Those prices look fairly close to what I'd have been willing to pay for copies, and they'll be likely to hold their price over the coming years.
