I think I will have to fly out to Perth and raid your shelves.  So do you have more stuff stored in the cabinets underneath?

:lol:

Got the alarm system installed the day after the collection went in  :twisted:

Under the cabinets have the Dragon & Dungeon mags, (A)D&D comics, and Polys.

Under the window (behind the desk) are 6 filing drawers with modules and other items I couldn't fit on the shelves.

My biggest fear isn't the items being stolen as I don't believe anyone outside the D&D collecting community would consider any of the items valueable.

My fears are:

1. fire
2. the dog (I have watched him pull all the tissues from a kleenex box and tear them to shreds one at a time) he is banned from certain areas of the house.
3. my better half tossing some items in her effort to do a spring clean (she has been warned)

Fire or flooding are my greatest fears....in Texas there are a lot of tornadoes, I could see one coming through here, and not doing much damage except for to open a hole in a wall or the roof...and let in water.  Honestly I think I'd rather just have the entire house vaporized by a meteor than to go through the pain and anguish of having to pull each waterlogged item out of the boxes one by one and toss them in the trash...

The Arcanum (1st print?) by Bard Games.  I used to have one but it was swiped by someone years ago.  I have a second print now.  The main difference is instead of a silver pentagram, it's red.  Not sure about rarity though.

Found a link a link for it:

Heh, I have only seen 2 over the last year or so.  Don't get me wrong I am not trying to claim that they are super rare or anything, I just wasn't aware that they were common. :?

Yes, it is not common, of course, but not really "rare". If you want one you will get it for a good price quickly, as I did.



As for example, actually

http://cgi.ebay.com/Arcanum-by-Sechi-Ta ... dZViewItem



I saw it many times. Not everyday of course ;)

I used to have 2 sets of R modules, but I sold my second set to someone here privately. :wink:

Oh, when I said I only saw 2 of them, I was refering to first editons, not the second edition.  I have seen lots of second edition ones up for sale. :)

Strangely the 2nd edition is more common than 1st but go for more. I bought my 1st pr. for only $0.99 one month or 2 ago. But I saw the 1st ed. at least once a month for sale.

I will post the link in non-TSR interesting items when I see them. I never did it before since I thought noone was interested in them.

Your display of the "stuff" is quite nice.  Puts my 13 brown boxes to shame.  Congrats on that.  Really nice.

Hey; I do have a couple more... (erm, what sort of brown boxes were we talking about again?)

*nods in agreement* re. Brendon. That's a helluva lot more than just one SW'd oB3.
Excellent job on the "study" and a superb, quality collection - good luck with the spaces you appear to have left (Inverness?).

Was that before the mainsite was updated; now appearing to indicate that R2 is (possibly?) rarer than ST1? :o
(I'm sticking to my guesses and the previously quoted figures for now; sorry, Frank. :))

Don't know of any apart from those guys here. One of my friends was a rabid Cthulu collector, but he's really cooled over the last few years.

Maybe us guys can arrange to get together at the Con next year?

Be a short-ish trip for you eh Brette?


Sure, I was thinking of going anyway, and it gives me plenty of time to plan;) Always good to put faces to names.....

Did he collect any CoC con modules at all?

I have to agree, most people would steal a jar of pennys over any of our stuff;)

David, are you refering to the blue covered R2 or the R2 Pre-pub being more rare than ST1? I have never had any pre-pubs, just the 2 sets of covered R modules.

Yeppers; the blue 'uns.

"with approximately 250 to 500 of each actually being sold (with R2 Investigation of Hydell being the worst seller)".
8O

No way were only 250 copies of R2 sold given relative rarity vs. ST1 (and it's pretty sure IMO that more than the stated max. of 200 of those were flogged off, given sales at the events plus remainders that were purchased later).

02c only, of course. :)

:lol:  I'll have to start getting serious about these soon, I'm down to only a few items left that I would like just finishing off a couple of lines but getting one item here and there is starting to add up in postage costs alone... I think I'm going to try and do some more off ebay sales and trades now (Just have to sort out the stuff I have to trade...)
