Is Player's Secrets of Hogunmark a rare item? It is one of the few Birthright items I do not have. I was watching one intending to bid, but the price has jumped to over $30 already. Anyone know what this item is worth?

I usually think this is worth about $25.  They are somewhat rare but another will come along.  This book was released with issue #130 of Polyhedron to RPGA members.  I picked up a copy a couple months back in a lot for $15.

Here's a link to the one posted on the Tome of Treasures:

Thanks Mars,

What are your thoughts on the Boxed Set. There are some in shops that are very highly priced?

None of the boxed sets stand out as being a rare or garnering large prices like say Planescape.  Although Birthright probably does better than Al-Qadim and Dark Sun.  I haven't paid more than $25 for any of them.  When I was buying them, I remember them being really hit and miss.  Most of the modules I would probably value at around $5-$7 and Magecraft and Spellcraft around $15.

Well, I'm not Mars but I can tell you from personal experience that I almost never come across any Birthright boxed sets or sourcebooks in  the original shrinkwrap, locally, here in Edmonton.

The Cities of the Sun box I just found is the only Birthright box that I've been able to find unused. Birthright products seem to be very rare in my area.

Except for the campaign boxset and a few of the books I managed to obtain most of the birthright stuff in shrink and at little cost (ie less than retail).  Some of it from White Knight as well (edmonton).



Key with Birthright stuff (like any other) is patience.  It is not rare and most items come up frequently on ebay.

Most of my modules are in shrink and all of the thin boxed sets are in shrink.  Finding a campaign setting in shrink is probably the hardest of the lot - most people seem to open that.

Patience is the key to collecting.  I picked up a lot of the Dark Sun and some Birthright stuff from a store (about 6 years ago) that was liquidating all their D&D stuff at 65% off.  Some Planescape items are about the only setting that you will probably end up paying more than cover.

I was just looking at the free PDF Birthright module at WotC (I note that Hogunmark can be downloaded as a free PDF) and saw that you can download a game called Legacy of Kings. Was this ever released as a boxed game or was it always an electronic thing?

It was never released but I think it might have been planned to be released (would have to check the catalogs).  There were a few items such as one of the novels that you can also download.
