I'm curious about some items listed in the "catalog" found at the end of All the Worlds' Monsters Volume II (2nd print, 1979). I've been looking through my stuff, cataloging it, and decided to open it up and give it a purview, to see if there would be something neat found inside... and, so, the question:

Does anyone have any of the following, know the relative rarity, value, and whether the stuff is any good? And... if you have it, would you be willing to sell or trade? ;)

Stomp!

Perilous Encounters

Balastor's Barracks

Trolls and Trollkin

Scorpion Men and Broos

Militia Men and Mercenaries


Thanks, folks.


Those who can, don't. Those who should not, do.

These ones are uncommon but not terribly rare:

Stomp!

Perilous Encounters

Balastor's Barracks

Trolls and Trollkin

Not sure about these two:

Scorpion Men and Broos

Militia Men and Mercenaries

I had my eye out for Chaosium stuff for about 6 months.  I managed to get all of those items except Perilous Encounters.  I got Stomp at fixed price for $22 and later sold it in an open auction for $16.

Militia & Mercenaries, Trolls and Trollkin, and Scorpionmen and Broos are computer generated trash. They are even typeset on a dot matrix printer.  I'm holding on to my copies, tho.

Perilous Encounters usually sells in the $20-$30 range as well.

Here's the Chaosium version:

I picked up this version from Crazy Egor last year:

Hi,

I've had these in the past:
Militia & Mercenaries, Trolls and Trollkin, Balastor's Barracks

Worth surprisingly little - I think I only had them out at £10 - 15, tho they did sell within a couple of shows.

Cheers,
Malc

I'm honestly surprised you got even that.  I think I paid far less for my copies.

(And grubbiv is right: they're crap. ;))
