Nope.

Author was selling these back in 2005/6 at $5 a shot. He's probably still got boxloads of them. Anyone here got one from back then? If so, can you post some internal pics? Need to fire up those grey cells. :oops:


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

Le_Rahib bought one and gave it to me after reading it... He said: "this module should have stay well forgotten..."... BTW I never lost my time in a reading...

I can make pics of the internal pages if you wish.

Still holding its value, by the looks of the winning bid amount.

It looks like we've had somewhat of an Acaeum effect pattern here with some items going higher at the beginning and then someone trying to ride the wave but the price dips:

Sold for $170.48

Sold for $192.00

Sold for $128.05



Still, that's a chunk of change for a single module.  Yeah, I realize it's rare, and I even hear it's pretty good, but it's just too expensive for me.   8)

Acaeum effect is "significant".

Notice how the price drops?  Part of the Acaeum Effect is a high price...followed by dropping prices as sellers glut the market.

I've always said I want the third or fourth copy on Ebay. Cheaper that way.

Honestly never thought my Rolaids Mods would have fetched that much, considering that they were not mint. Still, I am not complaining :)

Exactly correct. I've picked up a few bargains when this happens.

This is certainly obscure:

Don't think I've ever seen anything bound quite like it.

"Obscure" seems to be the word of the day :)  The binding definitely stands out but this one is really more common that you would probably think - especially for a 1970s RPG.  Nice to see the cards are still with it.  If you are interested be sure to check that the plastic overhead sheet is still bound in near the back.

Yeah, well, just remember that it's relative.  What's not obscure to you (or a few others) may very well still be to everyone else.   :wink:
