I've sold my spare copies of Tegel now. I've kept the best of them for my collection and have a few Gamescience versions to put up on eBay later, but Burnie's looks in great condition for one that has been out of it's shrinkwrap. I've seen these go up to $80. Rest assured I won't be bidding on it.

I still want your CSIO though, David. :D

Has anyone ever seen one of these? Own one?




I haven't, but I'd be surprised if Necromancer Games didn't reissue those maps in support of the d20 Wilderlands boxed set when it's finally out, especially if they were already scanned well....




As far as I know, this CD-rom was never published. It was planned to be published in 1999 (and announced in Pegasus and the JG web page), but I believe that they were never able to come up with a decent scan.

That would be bourne out by the crap scans you can buy ESD. The downloads for $2 are great if you're buying Citadel of Fire or Tegel Manor, but the Wilderlands maps are completely illegible.



I would have thought they'd have used the original printing templates (no hexes) rather than trying to run a tan paper printed in brown ink through a scanner.

"140" is presumably an error on their behalf when guessing(?) the number of cards they were going to produce, which they didn't bother to correct. (Or did they, later, on any later state cover cards??).


How many tac cards are there meant to be in the Dungeon Tac Cards sets? Is there a difference between first and second print?

Initial Guidelines booklet J is worth a fair bit more. It's the hard one to find.

I haven't yet got my head around why the apparent rarities are as the seem, or whether that does reflect actual rarity.

The example I gave before was "L" versus "M".
If anything, I've seen more Tegels than Modrons, but the former are vastly more expensive.
... Are the Tegels actually more common, or is it just more people are searching for and listing them because they pull in better $?
(Even comparing "red" Tegels with Modrons the numbers still favor the former, I think...).

(As to "I"; $4 EX/NM, "whilst stocks lasted"... ;))

Gone are the days of the "special offer" price, no?

Yeah, that it did. :)

And the seller has enlightened, well set out rates on international shipping compared with many/most others: don't think any of us live in Mexico, anyhow...
(I love the way they phrased that customs valuation comment!)

Agreed. Should work out well, for sets, or just to put on "hold".

What's that...? You need some help to stop the tower of JG mods from falling down on top of you?

No probs... :P

I think the price of Tegel reflects both the original take up and the quality of the product. You're right with regard to rarity. I have only seen two Modron first editions that I recal in the past nine months. But Tegel is a far better product and there are collectors who value their collections on the quality of the product rather than condition and rarity.

I got my Modron 1st with Installment M. It actually is a bit hard to find.


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.

Indeed. :)

(Ian's "two in nine months" comment tallies with my recollection, too).
