Nope. Identical, right down to the over-tight shrinkwrap that causes the lid to bow in the way.

As i said in the other thread, if you find a Ravenloft Tarokka deck  by Sword & Sorcery / White Wolf in your FLGS pick it up.  It's worth quite a lot now.

Awesome writing/art/storyline

OOP and not going to be reprinted.  Though many want them to, they are more focused on the miniature Warmachine/Hordes line of products.

The whole RPG line is freaking gold if you can find it cheap.

So, if I can ask:  Hold on to the IK collection, or sell into the 'market'?

Well I'm holding onto mine, but not for profit, because I love the setting.
It maybe right to sell now if your intention is to make a profit, since 3.5 is doing pretty well and that helps.  Down the road who knows.  But the chatter on their forums is still for some looking to get the books.

Hmm... re-reading my post, the tone is a little off... Apologies if it came out a bit mercenary-istic  :oops:

It's just that I haven't played the setting, and probably won't because of opportunity rather than desire,  so perhaps it's a good time to get the books into hands of those who'd better appreciate them.

Thanks for the feedback, Shane   :D

There was an early TLG release called Calal's Grave. Anyone know if this is worth picking up, or what the quality of the writings is like? There appears to be no PDF.

The title of this thread is mercenary-istic ;)

And yes, if you're not going to be playing the game and have no interest in the books collection-wise, then it's best to sell them to someone who will appreciate them.

Galal's Grave done by Fiend Games, though published by Troll Lord Games.
This is from 2000, so production quality, etc not great.  Adventure not that aspiring enough for me to remember, though I think I read this back then and not since.

Sorry, got cut off.

I for one have no problem with the title or the insinuation...

In fact, I rather enjoy plundering...

3.5 Core Rulebooks are dropping in price on Amazon.  The change has happened so quickly that New-Condition books are cheaper than used books.  eBay prices are slightly higher than Amazon prices.

New-Condition books on Amazon:
  • PHB < $28 + shipping
  • DMG < $21 + shipping
  • Monster Manual < $19 + shipping

Naturally, I just stocked up on used Monster Manuals.   :x

If you buy more, you could corner the market and demand whatever price you wanted!
