Thanks Shane.

*sigh*. I wish that lot had its mailers, too. You did spot the "Originally published in..." wording, there?
Good, so that date tallies (pretty much) with when they originally released the subscription "L"s; and that can be similarly asserted back to "J" as I was doing, before.

> Now Boot Lists to #30, to #37, Treasure Vault to #160, No Product list. So I am wondering how to call these variants, and well wondering just when the 2nd print booklet L came into being.

New reverse on cover sheet only?
Tegel Manor Playing Aid is fine, although "3rd release" rather than "3rd printing", perhaps?
(Not worth listing the cover sheet as a separate item, too? ;)).

Good question on the orange Tegel...

> I do now believe the evidence is out to say that the thin font titled/single sided Character Codex is the 1st print, the thick font 2nd, and the thick font double sided 3rd.

> Another interesting bit..the Thunderhold maps (yeah both Judge and Players) have the Hammermill Bond watermark - my other copies of these maps so far do not, so am wondering if anyone has the watermark also on their Thunderhold maps?

Yes.
That would be "first state", presumably, given no indication of prior printing and the date (~Sep/Oct 76) they originally started using that supplier's paper?

=
Please give me a shout when you've finished filtering-through the previous input (or possibly when that yet-another CSIO #12 arrives ;)), since I'd like to go back through what we've all discussed thus far (implications on dating for #1, #4, etc.).

CSIO arrived along with true 1st print CSWE - so now 4 'printings/variants' (not as 'water damaged' as I suspected so happy and came in original opened shrinkwrap)
May not get to any updating of the site, but who knows.

CSWE's cover sheet has Treasure Vault up to #170, and appears just from glance Guidebook is different.

CSIO has the subscription card and mailing card (so I think they appeared with only this playing aid). Thunderhold maps have the Hammermill Bond watermark along with players map (so I am curious if the non-watermarked Thunderholds go with the Thunderhold Installment :?: )

Other then that, Disscussion is open David and those who also have these early products..lets try and hammer this out at the 'early JG items discussion' thread.

Hey the other is all yours (watch out for you know who though :wink: )..I have my players map (and both cards too which was a good surprise) so am done buying CSIO.
Glad the shipment arrived safely

Side Note: In my cleaning I'm coming across extra stuff I think I'll sell (so may just try my hand at this so called Ebay selling thing)..be a while until I get a list sorted with condition/printings/etc though.

Thanks.
Still awaiting those other updates/catch-up, Shane. A few posts of that either haven't filtered through, yet, or else waiting for the nod (e.g. on #30).

Bonus points if you can spot my previous comments re. #4 from before and add those in to that item's chronology without my re-posting those.
(Of course, everyone else will be missing confirmation of the key observation since you emailed that to me, rather than posted it here ;))

No.

And no, again, afaik.

I'll just point above to the previous posts. Best not to repeat myself too often. I do not have any installment runs with a #12 (and you keep outbidding me on those :P).
Therefore that mailing card presumably came with "K" as I originally suggested ("L" at an outside possibility, if just "surplus stock").
And per the top of the page, watermarked and original installment.

Yeah, need to keep all that "open", though. It's somewhat of a jigsaw puzzle, isn't it?
All good fun... :D

OK, after reading a lot of the excellent posts here and checking out the JG subweb in greater detail, I finally won my first JG auction.  I probably paid a bit too much for it but after looking at the amazing detail put into it, I think it is definitely worth it.

Now if I can just pick up the rest of the City State items to go along with it I will be in good shape.  :D

    Contratulations...and that is not too much for Wraith Overlord.  As I recall, I saw your bid and decided not to snipe a fellow Acaeum member.

Hey man...if you really want something...all's fair.  I would have rather been outbid by an Acaeum member than some asshat with zero feedback that doesnt know what the item is worth.  :twisted:

This isn't too bad, right?  I've heard some discussion that $40+ is average and the last one went for $80.00.

Hey, is there is supplement that deals with the lower circles of Hell as well?  I've always been a big fan of the Divine Comedy.

First very nice win..and second the other circles are being written by Geoffry O. Dale. I believe he has a lot of it done, though I think still needs to find a publisher.

Now, yes... :?

$25-30 was "average" towards the end of last year (e.g. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8737733742 ), which is why Al still had his shop copies priced at $40 for F/VF.
Recent prices have been, erm, silly... $83; http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8398820229

$40-50 on resale would be fair to expect, I think, even though some of the bulk JG prices have been very low recently and the market's kinda thin.

The main reason for the end price was of course that it was in the wrong category.
You missed the "steal", though, from the same seller; http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 6618893583
(Seller was being a pain re. shipping even though I know someone who lives in the same town, otherwise they'd've had another $20 or so in their hands :))

Never materialised :(

Years ago our DM created one using the text as a guide - pretty scary (and perfect for high level characters) and with plenty of diabolical scheming.  Is the JG Inferno any good? Remember...

Hmm, that's just my own JG ignorance then.  I saw his auctions right off the bat and that one as well  (I was even waiting to potentially combine shipping on some D&D stuff that I didn't win).  I just didn't realize it had value . . . erm, what is the value here?

"Value" or "worth"? :)

Either way, Brian's $6 is somewhat less than $112 Shane paid for a SW'd copy; http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8750427992 .
Note, however, the underbidder on that sale was also the same person who paid $83 for the Inferno (i.e. OTT two-way bidding war between people who ain't waiting for a "decent price").

The "Character Codex" is uncommon enough, though; possibly, in this case, because it ain't exactly "interesting"!

$25 would've been a good "buy" price and since <lofenloc> is presumably still looking for a copy, dropping one in front of him at $50-60 BIN might've done the trick.

oh yes.  :)
I'd be curious to know how close the JG Inferno is to the setting in the Divine Comedy - is it just loosely based, or is it really close?

If no one else chimes in on this red bus, I'll post in a few weeks once I get it and have a chance to read it.
