I would say around $200.  Latest one on Ebay went for $191.

It went that high cause the auction included the mega map for the city:

A copy of the 32"x48" vinyl map for same. The box is completely unopened.

Lately, on ebay, getting $175 has been tough.
3 months ago I saw someone post a BIN with a Excellent copy with the extra items and the CD for $170.  It ended 3 weeks in a row with no takers.

There are two on ebay now @ $175 and $170 as the end range, with little interest yet for that pricing.  Granted they have not ended.

Trades/sales on the forums have centered around $150, with few bites.

The Vinyl map appears to be a lot harder to get than the book.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . minestrone soup.

I hadn't looked for a while, but I thought they were going for around £120 a few months back?



But this unopened one is way over that.

What people ask for and what they sell for and usually 2 very different things.

Very True!


So somewhere around $125 - $150 would be reasonable these days...

I have known this guy for years, he has a shop about 1 hour north on the highway from my house in Calgary.  I have bought literally 100's of items from him over the last 8 - 10 years, he has a relatively low turnover rate of inventory and had many many out of print RPG's and miniatures (keyword "had" :))



Anyway I have been encouraging him to get on Ebay and selling his stock there and he resisted for very long, it probably cost him 10's of thousands of dollars not to be on Ebay.  When I first discovered his shop he still had Magic Beta packs for sale 8O



Good to see him online and distributing his stuff to the world  :)

I bought a complete set (opened) about 4 months ago at about $165.
I sent it back though as the seller is an asshat.
e-Bay ended up refunding me as the seller would not do so.

Sorry, but why are you talking of the 1st edition?
...are there other editions than the 1st?!?

I think there is a print on demand version available.


Areas of interest/knowledge: Harn, WFRP, Ars Magica, anything BRP based such as CoC, Runequest, Pendragon and all their related games

Correct, in two softcover volumes.  I think it was announced around GenCon this year?

The new KS is re-publishing for different editions and adding some pages of new content. At the size of the book it is something I think would retain close to its original price.
