I've noticed a few things recently added at NK that I have found/sold and was wondering if it was anyone here who has been trading in/selling some of the rare nonTSR items?

NK has listed a few items that I am interested in but the prices are pretty high.  Just curious if it is someone here liquidating their collection.  Chances are, I would pay more for the item than you would get in trade or by selling them to NK.

For example, I'm sure this one passed through my hands:

Wow! Thanks to you I got a copy of this for a lot less than what NK wants. 8O

I, too, got mine from Mars at a substantial discount to NK.

Thanks Mars (keep it coming)

Most likely, I initially sold the copy that has ended up at NK and I didn't really have too many of then so I was just wondering who sold/traded their copy to NK.

And as a guess, NK probably didn't give them what they paid for the book initially either.  I would have bought the book back from what I sold it for too.

Pas moi. Never been tempted to deal with the store, other than a rare purchase for something not found anywhere else, like a very few Ka Ge Magazines.

Funny, my gut instinct was that that was being sold on behalf of someone for a straight 30% commision (like tha Daystar West stuff). Kynan mayhaps?

I think NK only does commission for items that are on the more expensive end such as Wee Warriors $300+, etc and I don't think these items are Kynan's.

So how many did you have?
And have you thought anymore about sourcing more Worldshaker?

I'll second that, with a pretty firm conviction.  :wink:

I ended up getting a few more copies in a second batch from the author so in total I ended up with about 10 copies.  One person never claimed their copy so I have 1 left.

I still have 1 Worldshaker Creature Collection book left too.

And very soon I will have some copies of Spells for Aldernon and the sequel book More Spells for Aldernon (they are at an Acaeum waypoint).

I didn't know you collected (rare) SLA Industries fanzines, Stephen. (Looks darned strange to see those alongside the early Underworld Oracles, too, with virtually nothing else in between.

@Mark: I don't keep tabs on Aaron's stock that well; what else is "new" aside from Nimolee? Can't recall if the Fantasy Unlimited stock originally from yourself was there before, in addition to others such as the Rider Fantasy items which weren't?

Like yourself, hard pressed to see that many "bargains" around just now in NKG stock - $50 for that 1st UK T&T ain't horribly bad if genuinely that good condition and $75 for the 2nd Catapult Run would've been pretty reasonable last year. Not $195 for Wilmark's Roomscapes, though ;) , but that was in stock previously, no?

In two minds to see some of those such as the Nimolee sitting in stock. Better to be read/used/whatever but is almost as likely that would end up sitting on a shelf if purchased and whilst it's in stock with a non-trivial description it is flag-waving for non-TSR, after a fashion.

The NM Fantasy Unlimited without the staple rust are new.  I traded one set with staple rust in this summer along with a few other items such as these:

I hope someone finds the ones on my webpage first though.  It seems like I still have 1 copy left of a lot of things.

I picked up a copy of World of Esaene a little bit back for $65 - I've been wanting a copy for a while.  There are some others that tempt me like:

http://www.nobleknight.com/ProductDetai ... GenreID_E_

but $95 is about double what I want to pay.

I got a copy of Nimolee from Mars too, but I keep it to me :)

Prices seem to be very high actually on NKG. I bought not so long ago several "rare" non-TSR from him (like EsperAgents) for less than $30 each.

At a quick look through the NK catalog, I think these might be newer as well:

I know a cheaper place to find Thrax if anyone still needs one.
