I'm hunting high and low for a 1st edition Chill box set in VGC+ but no luck. Supposing I ever find one, does anyone know how much I should be looking to pay? Am I just desperate at Internet searching or is this a hard to find item?

I just bought one on eBay actually, and it wasn't terribly priced. It arrived today, and was complete. I paid $9.99 for the item and $12 for shipping.

I think hamilcar sold one a few months back.  I have no recollection of what it went for though... :?

Thanks guys. So it's just a question of waiting for one to come along.

If hamilcar (ebay name) had one up, he probably has another copy in the warehouse.  You could ask him to dig one out and see how much he wants for it instead of waiting.

I'm not 100% certain though.  I know he sold a bunch of Pacesetter stuff a while back, and there definitely was some Chill stuff in there.  I just can't be certain whether the core rules box set was one of them, and if so how much it went for.  I was more interested in trying (and failing) to complete my TimeMaster collection, so I didn't pay too much attention.  (Yeah, I know, it's not that great of a game. That's probably why I didn't win anything, since I wasn't willing to spend that much money on them. :P )

It can't hurt anything to ask him though.

Thanks for the info. I've dropped Hamilcar a line.

Out of curiousity: are there any system differences between the Pacesetter and Mayfair versions of the game?  I've encountered the latter (if only briefly), but I've never actually seen a physical copy of the former.

Edit: And RPG.net answers my question: "The game mechanics vary considerably between the two editions."

I never read the Mayfair version. Apparently E3, based on the original, is imminent and has been since 2004.

There are some rather important differences between the two games, one being a purely fluffy thing, in that the acronym SAVE gets a meaning alteration. Others include the introduction of a Cthulhu-like "cult" centered around this thing called Rax (as I recall) who makes all manners of "commentaries" in the Mayfair rulebook (what he is, or, who he is, however is not revealed until a later date and book.)

Also, Chill 2e seems to be more about "movie horror" than "classic horror" but it might just be the way I read it.

Original Chill had the best d10s ever made for a game. Make sure any Chill purchase you make comes with them if at all possible.

Really? What makes them "special?" The game I bought came with the set, but the one I just traded for doesn't have them... so, why the "must get them?" Are they loaded? ;)

Just that during the era of flimsy TSR dice and adequte but dull Chaosium dice, the Chill dice seemed generations ahead. They felt "high impact" before the term was coined so to speak. So I can't imagine getting the full impact of the game without the dice. Just my 2 cents. Good luck!
