How much is the set of little brown booklets from Emporer's Choice, like these:

AG Bundle

but the earlier print with the light brown cover that look like the originals... printed in 2002 or so.

Thanks in advance!


I draw the line at collecting... D&D Towels.

Did we need: Jade Magi Sewer Crawl

Shoulda been: ".. from Pangreenia to Floratopolis, from mystical Treeonia of spectral Forests to Schruborial dimensions."  - The Forests of Leng

I'm not sure that the value of those change much from the sets Emperor's Choice offers now.  I think many collectors still see them as "reprints" of the original Dragon Tree Press editions so do not have "collector pricing".  The Dragon Tree Press editions, now priced as collector rates here:

Dragon Tree Press: RPG Gaming Aids series

are probably a bit high compared with Ebay pricing.

Double the previous "collectors rates". :)

Might I be sticking my neck out to suggest a general uptick in Arduin prices vs. a few years back, for whatever reason? A degree of demand even...
And that despite the general lack of some of the obvious "rarer" items (first prints, signed books, etc.).

Those prices are excessive, IMHO.  There seems to be a disagreement between Dragon Tree Press and Emperor's Choice on who really owns what rights, perhaps.  I know that EmpCho is claiming a new edition, major rewrite, what have you is in the works.  I also know I ordered volume IX form them several months ago and it's still in queue.

I have the Dragon Tree IV - VIII manuals from several years back and can tell you the glue binding lasts all of about one reading.

There was definitely a clash of who had the rights but it was settled years ago.

Agree with those statements.
