ciao guy, i'd like to ask you your opinion on several items i found in a store:

"Harnplayer guide" (ed.chaosium)
---
this one came with other booklets, i believe there're somehow accessories to the guide


"The scent of the beast" and advenutre module by J.Tweet for Talisanta (1992 wizards of the coast)

"Talisanta cyclopedia Vol.5" (1989 wizards of the coast)

"Troll gods" boxed set for Runequest (1988 Avalon Hill)

"Space master" boxed set (ICE #9000)

tnx a lot in advance!

Talislanta stuff usually only sells for around $2-3 . . . if that.  Maybe a little more if you are willing to let it sit in a store for a few months.

Trolls Gods (and most Avalon Hill Runequest box sets) are around $10-20.

I wouldn't let a complete Spacemaster sell for less than $15, though I would probably ask for around $25 for a decent set.  That's mainly because you don't see them on ebay too often and a buyer will invariably come along.  However, if you are patient, you can easily find one for less.

It is off the posters original topic but related indirectly. Does anyone know a good site for Shadowrun rarities and material information. Thanks in advance for any information.

Rarities no, but this site I believe lists everything put out for Sahdowrun
http://www.pen-paper.net/rpgdb.php?op=s ... elineid=91

Its a good setting, though been a while since I've played.

Also there is this on Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Shadowrun_books

Best I could find:

Its possible because the guy who runs vallhalla games is a douche bag.

That particular eBay store has been the topic of discussion in recent weeks.

Hi Axel,

The Harn series is still being published by Columbia Games.

Their third edition HarnPlayer is listed on their website for $29.99. So the version that you are showing has probably appreciated beyond that price (no guarantees though  :-)

http://www.columbiagames.com/cgi-bin/qu ... ct_id=4011

The Harn discussion forums might have some information if you take the time to go through them.

Good luck!

ciao guys! i'm back again with a couple of item that you'd well know!

1) i spotted ad "T&T adventure pack" by flying buffalo... i could only read the contents form a small table of contents since it was still SW! the only remarkable thing i saw was the sticker <<orcs aren't so bad with ketchup>> (or smtg similar!)...

2) what about current value of rolemaster 2nd edition books (such as companion I, II, ...)?

3) i bounght a runequest boxed set 3rd edition, obviously still sealed! ...there are also available several expansions: sets 2, 3 (char sheets), 4, 5, 9 (troll gods, as already said) and 10... is there any one particular that i'd buy?

tnx everybody and ciaooo

Any but the boxed character sheets are worth some nice $$

I have been collecting Shadowrun since its inception.  I am not clear on rarity but I do follow the auctions quite often and the books that usually go for more than most are:

1. The Universal Brotherhood
2. California Free State
3. Bug City
4. Dunkelzahn's Secrets
5. Renraku Arcology: Shutdown

Most of the adventures go for around $5.  A few of the deluxe adventures like Harlequin and Harlequin's Back will go for $10 - $20 most times.  The box sets (Denver:City of Shadows and DMZ) will usually go for about $20.

I have seen Universal Brotherhood go for up to $40 and California Free State has to be one of the hardest ones to find.  I have been looking for one for a few months and it has only shown up once or twice.
