Hi  Guys,



Tell me what you think of this auction I won.  I was after the Gazetteers, but also liked the ogre chief and other red modules.  I'm a D & D and AD & D collector so I really do not know what I bought.

Thanks

You got a pretty decent set of items at a decent price in my opinion. Nothing in there to tip it over the top and plenty of newer items that should rapidly appreciate in value.



Please tell us what you think of the items when they arrive!

Adam,



Thanks for the info.  I look forward to reading this stuff since I know absolutely nothing about it.

Well, I can't really speak for the vast majority of the stuff, as there's d20 stuff that even I don;t recognize in there, but I can say in detail that "Lands of Mystery" is very cool, as I wrote about three-eights of it in its original form.



It has four adventures, three of which I co-wrote.



"The Sirocco's Kiss" is a so-so adventure, with the low-level characters going up against a rakshasa and his cult. Was better in 2E than in 3E, where those ELs are all-important. I wrote the entire sourcebook section on the city, and edited the actual adventure.



"Night of the Rotlord" is about the characters wandering into a plague-infested village, and dealing with the mystery surrounding it. I edited the adventure, and wrote all the material on the diseases and disease system in the original 2E adventure (most of which made its way into the HackMaster system).



"Unguarded Hoard" is an interesting reversal about dragons and treasures. I designed the city and edited the rest.



I still have a small pile of the originals sitting around somewhere... they were "for use with your favorite fantasy role-playing system" (wink wink, nudge nudge), and published as "Kalamar Quests."



As you use Mystara, you might be interested to know that I wrote up a conversion to place "Unguarded Hoard" on Davania, in the region of the Amalur Lowlands. It's on the Vaults of Pandius here: http://pandius.com/kalamar.html



I never did get around to writing up conversions for the other ones... :(

The two merp books are resellable so long as they have their maps. I know the Gaz books have their maps (I asked seller).


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

If I remember right the Moria map is built in. I could be wrong on that. Mine is packed away in some unlabeled box. Anyone able to confirm this?



I would say you made out well. Worked out to be less than $2 an item pre shipping. I was watching that one and was trying to decide if the cost was worth it for the MERP, the DA module and the two Gaz modules as resell stuff. I wanted to look at some of the D20 stuff just to get a feel for some different publishers. In the end I remembers I never sell stuff though and have spent way too much in the last three months :lol:

Around $10 for Tharbad, $20-$30 for Moria (although one recently went for $45).

"DA4 -- The Duchy of Ten" can go for good money, sometimes.
