Hello everyone.
I have some books which appear to be for the Dungeons and Dragons game that I found at a yard sale this summer. They were made by The Wee Warriors. The tiltes are Dwarven Glory and DragonLord. Does anyone know what they are worth? Both appear to be in excellent condition. I'd like to sell them if possible. Thank you.

Jeff

I'm sure you'll get lots of private offers with people looking for a bargain. You'll get the best price with good big photos on an eBay auction, well placed ads pointing to your auction, and a good old fight amongst the bidders. The market is very bouyant at the moment and some Wee Warriors items will go down a treat. I wouldn't be surprised if an excellent clean copy of Dwarven Glory (maps intact) went upwards of $500 with recent eBay behavior.

Welcome to the forums.

I'm sure you'll get plenty of PMs with offers.  Just be sure to let us know how it works out if you go with a private sale.

Hi there and welcome to the forum.  As noted above several high res pictures will certainly help your cause.

Dragonlord is insanely rare. It could easily go over a grand. I only know of 2 copies.

Heh. This almost sounds like a test.  Dwarven Glory is rare/valuable, with earlier printings being worth more than later ones.  DragonLord is so rare I've never heard of it, but I'll take DL36's word.  The best way to get a fair price is to mention the auction link here, and put them on eBay with extensive photos.

Or, open it up to private offers.  That's probably happening already, though.

Hmmm.  My first thought is to say that you should run a private auction here, but Killjoy is right - you will likely get a higher price on ebay.  



Regardless, good clear close up pictures are the most important thing to get.  People will want to know about and pen or pencil annotations, other marks, tears, creases, staple rust and whether there has been any water damage.  So you might as well address those questions up front.  Having said all that - you probably have a couple of nice offers already...  8O

So what is Dragonlords all about, Frank? Is it D&D or an independant games system?

Good advice on how to get good quality images onto your auction. You give them the picture. They keep it for 28 days and give you a link to it. You can then post that link on the auction or on a site like this and everyone can go and see.

Frank do you feel younger?

I think the private offers that are likely to be sent will probably give you a good starting point for say an EBay sale. Be wary of setting the starting bid too high though. As has been mentioned, the more good photos and descriptions of any 'faults' will save you time later in replying to queries. Sounds like these two are going to be fun  :lol:

Maybe we should wait on all those private offers until we get some pictures first.

Hey Bergstrom,

How about a follow-up?   :D

Or have they been sold already?

According to the entry in Wikipedia:

Dragonlord (1978) - A one-on-one boardgame where players are dragonlords - warriors who fight each other while mounted on dragonback. Has 2 1/2 D artwork by Morno and uses squares instead of hexes for movement. Dragonlord is reviewed in The Dragon #17.

Is anybody else besides myself even remotely disturbed by what our new friends second post on the forum here was.  :?
