Hi.



I dumped a low bid on one of Noble Knights regular Maze of Zayene 4 Module sets.  I don't know a lot about these but they did seem interesting.  I have got a second chance offer for $20.00



Can anyone who has these please tell me if they are interesting/worth snaffling?  Thanks.  :D

$20 sounds like a good price.  NobleKnight was regularly selling them for $40-$50 a year ago.  But maybe they'll be $10 in another year.



Interesting read for less than $4 per item.

Here in Mass that really may not be as absurd as it seems. Last year when doing our taxes our accountant realized I ran the Cub Scout pack here in Lakeville. He told me to figure out every penny I spent, mile I traveled, etc. as it could be written off %100.....(considering it's a full time job, not just the "1-2 hours a week" they told me, it's nice).

Well......there are electives that requirements include game playing :)

"Really Mr. Auditor, I know 4K seems like alot for one game but to allow for the proper experience in playing the game they had to start out with an original 1st print woodgrain box set" 8O

Hmmm (thinks), if you set it up as a charity (is that 501(c)3 or somesuch in the US) you could possibly get full tax relief...

Hey, I won that auction! I didn't expect to - I thought *my* bid was lowball! Noble's offering the whole set for $100 on their site, or $20 each.

If I'd done a little more research before I bid, I probably could've saved a few bucks. Today I found an old post on the Acaeum where someone else got a $27 Second Chance offer for one of these sets.

However, I'm not complaining, $37 (including shipping) for 5 modules by Rob Kuntz is not a bad price. Consider how much his unpublished notes went for...

I think you are right. He may sell these for ever but I doubt that they will go much lower.

As an off-topic comment - i have been watching a film on TV tonight called '30 days' which I hadn't seen before.  It's a documentary about a couple trying to live off minimum wage for a month.  And it does make me think about what I spend on this stuff!

Thats a show by the Super Size Me director/star - there is like 6 shows or so, though only that one is with him and his wife for the full hour. The other shows only have him on sparingly talking about stuff.

Just to throw in my 2 coppers, I have been looking for a 2nd set of these myself(so I can actually open them up and read them  :oops: ), and if I had an opportunity to get them for $20.00 I 'd definitely jump on them.

Cheers!

I did it this afternoon.  I have never bought from Noble before but he is pretty swift and polite.  So far.  :)

The four Zayene modules by Rob Kuntz are quite good; the first two were originally run as tourneys, at least at East Con in NJ c. 1985 or so. The modules are ex-Greyhawk material, and they're all quite good.

If you're interested in d20 versions of the modules, Necromancer Games published the first three, and we published Eight Kings (see .sig).

He is the 2nd guy I ever bought from on Ebay back in early 1998!  He has a very good reputation indeed!

Just bid on one of Aarons auctions. He always offers 2nd chances to the runner up.  Thats how I got both my sets.
