Totally agree, but I wouldn't be looking to pay more that $6-8 in the US on account of the current seller sitting on three whole boxes of dead stock he can't shift. Wait and you'll get one cheap.

The international shipping kills the deal in the UK unless you're willing to buy multiple copies and spread the cost. That's how I got my copies and I think I have a few left for those in the UK looking to buy.

Same seller as spock mentioned above:




** expired eBay auction **




When was the last time anyone saw a RPG type Intellivision game?

Much less the Dungeons and Dragons cartridge in the original box and looking complete with instruction booklet and even the small instruction card?



Starting price of just $10. :)

On a different note.

A trusted seller (Member here) has some NICE items listed as well.

Including a couple of Mint condition Signed Robert Kuntz Modules (Pied Piper Publishing) with 5 days and change left.



And no, he is not paying me any advertising fees, just thought the items deserved more attention than they are getting. :lol:



Tower of Blood


** expired eBay auction **




Cairn of the Skeleton King


** expired eBay auction **




C9 Tomb of the Blind God by Goodman Games (Dungeon Crawl Classic Module)

With the Green Erol Otus artwork over (Signed by Otus no less)


** expired eBay auction **




Same seller has a bunch of low cost Judges Guild items up as well.

Actually, these are pretty easy to find.  Ten bucks is about the normal price on these, even with the box and overlays.  The sequel, Treasure of Tarmin is also about the same price.  I believe that later on Mattel changed the title on the box/cartridge for the first game to read AD&D: Cloudy Mountain in order to make it easier to distinguish between the second game.  Pretty sure it is harder to find.



I have an extra if you want one.

I knew you would know more. 8)
And thanks for the offer, but I do not collect those items.
Have a tuff enough time obtaining the few sorts of things I collect now. :wink:
And I do not want to start a new collecting bug for myself as I have more than enough bugs already.

That one seems to show up a little more often (still not common) than the other Dimension Six adventures.  Not sure why.

The Dim 6 modules used to be ten a penny, cropping up every few months on eBay. So were the Midkemia and Dragon Tree Press items. Then about 18 months ago they became really uncommon, even with the likes of NKG. A lot of the non-TSR stuff has become scarse. I presume it is because there are more collectors in the market, and more traditional TSR collectors have diversified on the back of discussion and the expanding knowledge base on the boards. I remember Starstone cropping up three or four times a year, and now Starstone and Seren Ironhand are real rarities.

I havent seen a copy of Starstone on Ebay in I dont know how long.  While it and Seren Ironhand are two of my favorite non-TSR modules, I dont own any of the Dimension Six books.  Are they any good?

I think there were two Starstones and one Seren last year.

They are pretty good, although Furioso is really hard going if you're the DM. Way too much info and background reading before you play the game. Big investment time.
There is a very good line of adventures in almost the same format coming out of France from a company called Le Dernier Cercle. The mapwork and adventures are very high quality, but the language barrier prevents most people even looking at these. Nowadays with cheap scanners and online translaters, you can convert text to English very quickly and efficiently. Again, these are very uncommon, cropping up only a few times a year (some I've never seen on eBay).

That's right.
Curiously, I hear there may be republications in the future.

I wouldn't know about Furioso.  I won a Furioso for relatively cheap...excellent condition a few months ago.  Now I'm afraid to open it.

The other Dimension Six stuff I have is decidedly OD&D-ish.

Does that make sense?

Yep; makes sense here. :)

Don't be. Seriously. :D

It might require consideration if thinking about breaking the spine of a $50 book and using that in one-off game, making pencil annotations, etc., but if purely reading for interest/inspiration/enjoyment/research/etc. one method is just to cradle it in a DM's screen or large format cheap kid's book - and I used to get anything overly rare sent in those by default as they're pretty much indestructible - with a comic book bag underneath: no spine creases, bends, or thumbmarks and shouldn't break the spine on pretty much any book with very few exceptions (e.g. 3rd print woodgrain if not being careful). If paranoid about fingersmudges, say, or for lengthier reading/note transcription, it's easy enough to tape paper or clear strips to the outside cover and wrap those around to help hold the book open: better to use a large, cheap hardback in that case, for obvious reasons.
e.g.

Apols. if all that kinda goes without saying, but hey... ;)

Furioso is a very common publication to find in NM condition, because no-one ever read or played it. I must have half a dozen of them, and practically every copy I've ever seen on eBay in in EX or NM condition, and neither have any effect on price. Seriously, it's a $20-30 module regardless of whether you read it or not. It's not going to go up in value any time in the forseeable future. Low demand, mediocre quality, stacks of them on the market in NM condition.

:lol:

Had to evict the Rahasia that's normally stabled there nowadays (along with R1 #1)

Added a couple of dollars for the sender to purchase, plus an extra pound or so in shipping costs but had no trouble surviving the box being mauled somewhat in transit.

Agreed.  Mine is nearly flawless as well, and it wasn't a big purchase.  Given the paper covers, these should be more beat up on average... so their never having been used is a good guess too.
