Recently obtained the adventure books posted below as part of a lot in an E-Bay listing.
They were published by Board Enterprises, Elmhurst Il. - John G. Josten (Writer/Designer)
Have not read them yet and had never seen them before and wandered if they hold any value.
Two are dated 1993, the other two have no dates (Death Traps and Rhum)

As I recall, they don't hold any particular value ($10-20 a piece if you're lucky), and don't make for good reading either, but they are a real slog to try to collect the set, so if you happen to find two collectors trying to compete for the same one, you may get lucky. Reading quality, they're down there with the stuff that came out of Wilmark Dynasty, only they don't command nearly as much. Probably best to either keep them in your collection, or sell them as a set.

As always, just my 2c. I'm sure one of our more profligate non-TSR collectors will be able to provide more up-to-date info. :D

Thanks for the images, btw. Archived just in case I ever get around to updating afterglow2.com.

Aside - If these came from the job lot on eBay recently, I always found that particular edition of The Compleat Alchemist (bottom centre) particularly hard to come by. That job lot was a bargain.


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

Actually, not rare, not sought after. Hard to get more than $5-10 for any module.
The sole "rare" item from Legend Quest is the binder which includes several modules. Modules in the binder present some very slight differences but nothing interesting. The binder will go in the $75-100 range if you find someone who is looking for. Otherwise, not sure it would go for more than $40-50.

Here is the binder:

There are a couple noticeably different printings with address changes and slightly different cover art.  In general they don't resell well but they are not the worst small press RPG I have read.

I might still need a binder version if anyone is selling.

Pics corrected.

Did you notice changes in cover art? I don't remember this, only change in adress and some details like this.

So, I need to check that to find which printings I am missing :)
