Isn't Domaine the same the game as Lowenherz by Rio Grande Games but with a nicer board (I forget)?

Since I just dug it out, here was the Role Aids sale:

All gone now though - that really was a steal of a deal.

I must have gotten these right at the end about a year ago... I wonder if they have any singles left? Somebody should find out.

Blasted Land # 299 of 1000:  Not in Shrink.  Orange Cover.  Complete  $3
Kobold Hall #429 of 750:  Not in Shrink.  Orange Cover.  Complete $3
Fez I: Green Folder, Still in Shrink. $6
Nanorien Stories:  Light Blue Cover, Still in Shrink.  $4
Beastmaker Mountains:  Yellow Cover.  Not in Shrink $4.

Sounds like I got a deal for $20 for all 5.  I was familiar with the Role Aids softcover books, but never saw the folder ones.   They seemed too good to pass up (I figured the Origins module was rare).

By the way, the Sales sheet with BL has reddish ink, fwiw.

What was DALLCON?  

Hope to play them all.

Tim;

Dallcon was  a convention in the 80s in Dallas....but darned if I remember it.  I want to say it was the same year Origins was in DFW (1984?)

BTW Tim, that was a helluva buy!

Yes
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domaine

However, I misspoke - Dominion
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominion_(game)
is the game I was thinking of.  Domaine, I've never played.

I still recommend Pompeii, though

I called them the other day and they said all of their role aids stuff was gone.

Might want to go reread that thread.  Nanorien Stones is in my top 5.  :P

LOL.  I got distracted by looking at Dawnworld again and must have skipped over your second list.

I don't have Nanorien.  What do you like about it?  I have a Fez and Beastmaker and think they are pretty average all around.

What's not to like about it?  Pretty sky blue folder, nice artwork, crisp white pages.  Oh, you mean the actual adventure?  :wink:   It's been a couple of years since I read it....I would have to go back over it again to give you any details.  And I dont always equate my appreciation of an adventure to its actual playability or plot.  If that was the case, Palace of the Vampire Queen would be at the bottom of any list for me.

I don't consider them to be particularly rare, any of them.


Why not?  Does anyone remember the numbers printed of each(besides Kobold Hall and Blasted Land obviously)?  Seems to me that these things dont come up very often, especially in decent condition.  Most of them have torn folders or are missing them completely.  And rarely do they have their inserts.

Did I say that?  Maybe not but I very well could have.  The main reason that I haven't picked up most of these is that I don't feel the urgency when the auctions show up.

In comparison with other small press items, the Mayfair tournaments border between uncommon and rare.  Anyone have any doubts that more copies will show up on Ebay? Within the next year or so?  Their price doesn't reflect rarity so much as it reflects supply/demand.  They have a much larger following than most small press items.

No.  You didnt.  "." (Ian?) did.
