Anyone heard of a book called Role-Playing Mastery by Gary Gygax? It's not really a piece of Gaming material, but talks about how to be a good RPer. I have a copy in good condtion, autographed, and was curious if anyone has a general Idea at it's worth/

They tend to sell for $5-15, but the autograph will carry the item higher.  :)

snap.
17 copies at present (= almost "Common" on my usual rarity scale), but none of those is signed.
(the book is paperback and relatively new (1987), so not quite as high a premium as a  contemporary sig on a "classic" item, I'd think).

Still a "nice to have" :)

Ah well.  Amazon is showing 24 used and new from $1.75 to $32.65 (psssh!), so it looks like it's devalued since I sold one - 3 years or so.  But a cool book!

Definitely. I'm really interested in selling it, but I like to know what things I have are worth.

Has anyone read it? I tried to, but I find it difficult. I thought the 1E DM Guide was much easier to read.

It's pretty dense, and probably takes the subject matter a little more seriously than it should. It's mostly just a fun book to have.

I liked both of EGG's general RP books, and IIRC both also contain some early GH tidbits....
