I have the following what can I generally expect; all in Excellent condition. I purchased long ago and never used; however I did slice them apart and put the individual pages into a three ring binder :oops: (mainly because they originally distributed the first few modules as loose leaf pages with a wiggy page numbering system designed for loos leaf binder.)  

Thanks Philip :D

40101 Curse on Hareth
40102 Plague of Terror
40130 Brotherhood of the Bolt
41001 Treasure Trove I - Cards of Power
42002 Places of Mystery II - Alluring Alcoves
42003 Places of Mystery III - Sylvan Settings

Philip---

Hmmm, I guess a lot would depend on the slicing.  Like many non-TSR items, the prices can really vary:  I'd say most of the Companions titles go for $20-60+ each, on average, but I've seen them sell for less than $10 and more than $80 too.  It really depends on the bidders, the condition (sounds like yours may not be ideal?), and such.

If Bolt is sliced up, I don't imagine it will fetch much.


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.

I missed that little titbit.  :oops:  I imagine they're better sold in a ring binder then.

I guess, depending on the buyer, you could expect anywhere from $20-$60. The two problems you run into:

1. Collectors like undamaged copies.
2. The cut copies are basically usable only as gaming copies.

I picked up a large lot of Companions stuff last year for $125 I think it was.  It included Curse of Hareth, Plague of Terror, Street of Gems, Brotherhood of the Bolt, Treasure Trove I, Fantasy Furnishings I, and Places of Mystery I to IV.
