Hi I attended a live auction Sunday where this came up as part of a bundle.

I had no idea on it's worth so didn't bid although it looked cool.(I like Lin Carter and Conan stuff) A friend who owns a game store locally bought it so I assume it would be for sale there so I may inquire with him.

I wanted to see if anyone here knows anything on it's value. It appeared to be in great shape. Thanks for any input!

*edit I see where NK has one for $40 so I guess that gives me an idea.

Second question - this was in the same bundle on the reverse side, is this particular EPT version very valable? I am guessing it came as part of a box set and is loose but don't know

Scott---

Royal Armies, if it's complete (it includes a separate map and a reference sheet), used to run $35-75 depending on condition (prices are likely higher now).  Some more info @ Tome of Treasures :: View topic - Royal Armies of the Hyborean Age (1975)

The EPT book, per the bottom comment on the cover page, is probably a reprint from Tita's House of Games.  See Tékumel :: The World of the Petal Throne for some comparative details.

Thanks Allen, it looks more like the 1983 Gamescience reprint from what I am finding Empire of the Petal Throne | Tekumel Collecting
