What I've found if you're interested in the hard copies...

in the US:
CompleatStrategist has Yggsburgh, Dark Chateau, Storehouse and East Mark
you can search in a couple ways...

http://www.thecompleatstrategist.com/in ... on=GOFETCH


http://www.thecompleatstrategist.com/in ... on=GOFETCH

(btw, they even still have the City of Brass boxset.)

If you're willing to do an international purchase, this place called Leisure Games in the UK still has Storehouse District for sale (the rest are out of stock but still in their list). Maybe Mbassoc, Ashmire, Faro or Lawrenson have dealt with this company before?

This place in Austria has East Mark, Storehouse

I think the only physical product I'm missing is the Brown cover version of Dark Chateau now.  Not sure if I'm feeling completist enough to worry about that one though.

Thanks for the links Mr. Spock,  I was surprised by the price on East Mark.  I was going to kick myself for picking one up on ebay (which should be arriving soon) until I saw the shipping cost  :lol:

I have East Mark on eBay for £12.99, I think.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

Yeppers.

BUT, at the top of the site on EVERY page there is a little symbol of the USA and states FREE SHIPPING in the contenintal USA.

So, I read the blurb that leads to the explanation that is linked through that symbol...

Our approach to giving you a great deal is simple: Free shipping for all orders over $25.00 by UPS Ground, and 10% off to anyone who wants to become a member for the price of only $10.00.


So (From the Complete Strategist) you get FREE shipping if your order is over $25 inside the continental USA... using UPS Ground delivery (IE. 1-2 weeks delivery).

I would have saved $27.75 on shipping with an order of just 3 items.
Free Town and 2 copies of Dark Chateau...

At first the free shipping would not work, so I called the 1-800 number and talked with them on the phone.
While talking with them I went through it once again and BINGO it worked...

However I then asked the fellow to clarify that they actually have those items in stock...
THEY HAVE NO Castle Zagyg stuff whatsoever.
NADA NONE!
And they have not had any Castle Zagyg stuff for many months..

Still, I knew it was too good to be true, a copy of Dark Chateau (the Grey version) for just over $11?!
I was told that the Web DUDE who SHOULD be updating the web sites shopping lists lives out of state and they cannot get a hold of him to update the site...
RIGHT....A.H.s...  :roll:

I will never get that hour of wasted time back again... :evil:
Not to mention the cost of that phone call.

:D  I always make the assumption that sites do not have any CZ stuff, because most online retailers do not update their webpages or have any means of knowing whether they have stock or not. Accoring to their site you could have bought tens of thousands.

The only company online that I have ever come across that actually has the stock it claims to have is Noble Knight Games. The rest are just fishing for hits in search engines.

I was going to say that I doubt these places really have anything except for maybe fanen (they seem to keep their catalog up to date online).

I tried buying some CZ stuff from Leisure Games early last year and after checking out, paying etc, a week or 2 later they email me to say none of it is available anymore and they can't get it in so are going to refund.  In the meantime, the Canadian dollar got a bit stronger so I ended up losing a few cents in the money conversion refund.

The Compleat Strategist also seems to list a few books that were never published: Canting Crew Revisited (never heard of this one).

yes, I saw that also.
Wondered if perhaps I had missed something... somewhere along the line.

Anybody have a copy of the East Corner (PDF only) that they are willing to part with? It's the only one I don't have. Not being a big PDF guy, I missed the boat when Troll Lord had it for sale and the rug got pulled from under them. I'm guessing most of your stories are much the same. :?

Oh man, that sucks! What kind of business is that where so many items in their list are not even in stock?!? And I was just reading that T&T thread, too... :(

I wonder if that Swords and Sorcery City of Brass set is not in stock as well?

City of Brass - Noble Knight Games has it cropping up regularly are pretty good prices. Between NKG and eBay it shouldn't be too difficult to chase down unless you want it immediately. The price on that remains stagnent, at or below RRP, just like Castle Whiterock.

Compleat Strategist is mostly a real world store(s), not an online seller.  That may explain some of the problem.

If anyone is looking for the non-boxed set CZ items (districts and such), let me know; there may be a couple left on local stores' shelves.

Yep I am in the market for sure.
CZ: The Free Town of Yggsburgh: Town Halls
.... and some others.
Mostly those others being the PDF items.

Too true.  I did the online Zagyg-dance with them a few months ago.

However, I did purchase a CZ:UW from them a year ago with no problems.

I had no problem with them when I bought the items a while back.  It seemed like an automated process.
