I think there was a little mixup.  "Hard Times in Hoxley" contains a village and short adventure for the Midkemia system, not Starstone.

Doh!  Apparently I was asleep at the wheel or otherwise out of my brain or something when posting my lists.  Sorry:  yes, the SA 17 material is for Midkemia....

Ah, now it all makes sense.  :)  I like the Midkemia line, too... so it's all good.  ;)

Probably paid too much for them but how often do you see the majority of them all together?  So now I need to reorganize my list.



1. The Infernax

2. Your Paladin Has Been Stolen!! (By Druids!)

3. Dragonlord

4. Fluffy Quest

5. ???



Cant decide.  Castle Perilous?  Catapult Run?  Tombs of Valla?  Anyone want to give me a better choice to go with?  :)



By the way, anyone got a spare copy of The Plateau - Capital of Evil laying around?

Congrats on taking one off the list! :)  Strangely enough another will appear to take its place. ;)

Gee, Mrs. Cleaver ... That certainly is a lovely dress.

Don't have a spare but I would like some of the other ones you got in that lot. :)

Unfortunately, I only have The Plateau Capital of Evil and Bavenlon: Danger In The Dark Forest.

Those were the only two that interested me at the time I purchased them a while ago.  Wish I would have picked the rest up.

That's a great score at a great price.  I think there are a few more as well.

Do you /really/ think that? ;)

A good trio; steering closer to "core" non-TSR, a first print Catapult Run might be the better target rather than declaring intent on Tombs of Valla given that one's previous auction history. :)

To be truthful....no.  But if the bid had been pushed up to what I put in as my proxy....then yes....definitely.  But I honestly wasnt sure what to expect since I have seen very few of the Silverdawn adventures/supplements on Ebay.

I can't recall any recent auction prices for Tombs of Valla.  I would expect somewhere in the $200 ballpark though.  Of course I am hoping to follow in Killjoy32's footsteps by snagging one for $10 on Amazon one of these days.  :)   I have read through Catapult Run and it looks like a fun adventure so that will probably end up in the #5 spot.

I remember bidding on Frank's when he sold a bunch and the price being in the $90 range for each one - I think I lost them all to Lofenloc but then found some copies for cheap shortly after.

Tombs of Valla is probably in the $250 range.

I think that's about what they went for. They're pretty rare, especially the base game WITH the map.

What do these go for?

I think the last 3 or 4 have sold for about half that.

Nice purchase on the Silverdawn material, and a good price too considering how rarely they show up.  

Of the three new targets you listed, I've owned all three at one time or another and think Tombs of Valla is the best read.

Tales of Terror rockets into Courting Madness territory:

$305 @  
** expired eBay auction **




With More Tales of Terror hitting $202.50!:  
** expired eBay auction **




Previously, the only Pagan title I remember hitting $300+ was Courting Madness---even Stark Raving Mad and the player aid kits haven't breached $200 before to my recollection, much less the ToT books (which were usually in the $100-ish range).

Weird!



I guess that final prices for most of items were so high because of the numerous CoC collector items offered by this seller. I am pretty sur that the next one will go under $100. Few weeks ago Tales of Terror sold for less than $50. I got mine 2-3 months ago for 43$.

I am tempted to list mine at $280 BIN... Just to see.

That's about what I was ready to bid, and then these shot right on past!

I agree.  This was a pretty large collection, and well advertised on several forums.

Do you have a link for the $50 ToT?  I missed it and I want to see if I can figure out why.

Unfortunately, the listing is removed (too old). It is older than what I was thinking. The time is running too fast :/ 1 year ago:

Call of Cthulhu Tales of Terror The Unspeakable Oath (#110440744840)

I bought Eyes only vol 1 from the same US seller and got both for 54€ including shipping.
