ciao guy, here are some purchase i made yesterday for a bunch of euros...
since i'm not yet in touch with non-tsr stuff, i'd appreciate it if you let me have your opinion on them...
even if they'd be in mint conditions (i found them in a store), they suffered some damage (it's clear from pics)...
here are pics of cover and credit page of each of them:

I'd say if you got all three books for $10 you got a bargain. If you paid over $20, you maybe paid too much. But I don't follow EPT prices closely. Maybe Faro would be a better man to answer this question.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

well, it exactly paid 11 EUR: 3 for the deeds booklet and 4 for each of the petal throne... this means aprrox 15/16 USD which is a way in the middle of what you told me... (and it makes me happy since i never bought smtg non tsr)

btw, what does EPT mean?  :oops: (beg your prdon if the question is silly)

Empire of the Petal Throne.

I haven't seen EPT outside of eBay for many years.  Will the mere mention of it at the Acaeum spark an EPT Bubble on eBay?   :D

Last GenCon one of my staff (who should have known better) went all the way to $500 for a shrink'd EPT.

And then one of our runners dropped it and broke the shrink.  :evil:

The buyer of course was allowed to back out of the deal. The seller was rightfully enraged... iirc the auction had to buy it, for the bid price, and try to resell it as "broken shrink but never opened".

::sigh::

I just came upon a Deeds of the Ever Glorious awhile back, while I was comparing prices, I saw one that went for $40 on Ebay.  This was a few months ago IIRC....so I'd say good deal!

Wow! $40 that seems terrible high (good for the seller though).  For $26 more they could have gotten another 8 EPT books:

hold on pls, i don't get the point... what edition you're refferring to? i suppoese that 500 USD were for the first edition (and, if i understood correctly, the 1st edition was not properly a "full" RPG, but rules for miniatures wargaming, isn' it)

I think you can get a good deal buying in bulk...most sellers make some money breaking up sets like that.  Unfortunately a lot of people just pop on Ebay wanting one particular item and don't bother maybe waiting a few weeks to see if a lot pops up with that item and some others.

Armory, being a massive distributor, had no trouble getting its books into the pipeline. I don't think any of their branded products are difficult to find.

Take what you can get for it ... $5-$10 sounds about right.

hi folks! just a question on EPT: on the rear cover of this booklet

Image

there's and advertisment where it's written that next issues for this game are Sword and Glory vol.1 (tekumel source book), Sword and Glory vol.2 and Sword and Glory vol.3...

the point it that i was able to find and purchase both vol.1 and 2 but i have no clue on vol.3! i mean that i start to suppose that it has never been released! do you have any piece of info on regard?

tnx and ciao
