Found some interesting paperbacks called Dragon Warriors that are an actual RPG.  Thought they were more like game books, but they seem to have a pretty robust system.  Wondering if they have any significant value.  I found books 1, 2, and 3 and have pictures posted here:

Any thoughts?  Thank you!

No idea on value, sorry.

But I can provide a little info.  There were six books in this series and a new version released a couple years ago:

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

Thanks for the reply and link!  I saw that info, too.  Because I was having a difficult time finding info on them, I started wondering if that correlated to their rarity.  They were published in England, and I thought that also might affect how scarce they are, at least here in the US.  Went back and tried to see if the other three books were there, too, but no luck!

Anyone else have any knowledge of them or any idea of value?

Not a lot.. the first 3 books are fairly commonish.. I think book 4 (or maybe 5?) is hard to get.. I remember that there was maybe some problem with the distributers .. Its a great set of book and I recomend picking them up..

The re-release is actually more of a real expanded rpg..

Thanks!

If anyone is interested in them, let me know.  Otherwise I may list them with some of my other items in the near future in the Classifieds section.

I would imagine they are fairly uncommon in the USA.. Usually only released in the commonweath markets, ie Australia, UK, NZ, Canada..

I really like Dragon Warriors (well, I like most British RPGs  8)  and yes, I think that books 1-3 are quite common while complete sets go for a pretty penny (I sold a complete set for around £ 50)
