I can find a few listings for this book (ISBN 1588469417) on www.abebooks.com. What I can't find are any copies that are signed by George R. R. Martin. Any ideas on value if I were to try and sell it?

Thanx!

There were 2500 of these made and sold for the initial release and all should be signed and numbered.
Value should still be $100.

Does 2500 make them instant collector's items...or does the signature add anything.

I handled one in Barnes and Noble the other day, thinking, "Dude, you guys are three years late and $25 too expensive."

All 2500 of them were signed? None of the listings I've found indicate that. Hmmm.

Was that the deluxe version or the standard...the standard is $50 I think.

There's a DELUXE version?

This thing is priced to sell only as a novelty, to rabid fans of the series, as it is.  I figure its main value might be as a coffee table book and conversation piece.   8O

Is there a D20 book for Robert Jordan's Wheel of Time series?

I can see the introduction"

"OK...there are three things to remember in this campaign setting:  First, the world is square.  Second, nothing makes much sense.  Third, no one acts logically.  If the DM can remember these three nuances, there is no reason why your campaign cannot stretch into endless episodes where nothing happens except whining."   :lol:

Wheel of Time came out shortly after the D20 started.  As far as I know they only had one hardcover campaign setting book and the Prophecies of the Dragon adventure book.  Any reason why more stuff didn't come out?

With about 10,000 pages of novels, you would think they could develop something.

but if you take out all the boring parts where sod-all happens that doesnt make you sleep withing 15 seconds of reading a page, youre left with about 25 pages..... hardly worth developing anything imo.

Don't know why not, but yeah initially the print run was to be 1000 (with 500 signed), but they increased the print run to 2500 to meet the demand (and yes they sold that many)..I assume they had them all signed, I've neard no news otherwise. The deluxe version has both Tri-Stat rules and d20 rules, plus in spine book marks, and silver edged paper. (It was only this edition that was signed)

Wheel of Time: those 2 supplements were good books from WoTC, at least for setting info (though it has now been soem years since I last read anything from Jordan.)

The seem to sell well some of the time on eBay. The ones I watched always semmed to go for more than the ones I missed. I ended up getting one at HPB...it was $24.98 but I had a 40% off coupon good for one item....

I actually got a first printing of the Game of Thrones novel in hardcover for $6.98...I have seen that sell for a pretty penny as well.
