I would probably say Bunnies & Burrows is a $50-$60, Madame G $20-$25, Places of Mystery IV $25, Quest of Great Jewels $40, Runic Cairn of Skeleton King has sold for around $100-$125, runic Tower of Blood in the same range?

A bit tough to say how the PPP items would do now though.

Alan, here's what I would say:

Bunnies & burrows - FGU 1976, light blue cover

Depends on the printing, but I would say assuming condition is okay at least $75.

Madame Guillotine - FGU 1976

From what I have seen, $5-$10 tops

The Armies of Tekumel Volume 1: Tsolyanu - 1978

Likely around $25 or so

Barsoomian Battle Manual - heritage models inc 1978

At least $40, and I have seen them go in the $60 to $70 range before.

The Companions: places of mystery IV: High Road - 1984

Depends on if Lance has this or not.  :P  Seriously, probably $25 to $30.

Quest of the Great Jewels (think i got this off DL at some point) - 1983
No clue, never even heard of it before.


Tower of Blood - runic copy V - PPP

Likely in the $100-$125 range

Cairn of the Skeleton King - runic copy K - PPP

Same as the Tower of Blood.

I think there are 2 prints, one with a product code and one without.  Can also tell by the logo on the cover.  If it just says "Fantasy Games Unlimited" it is earlier than the one with their logo as well.

1st ed: 1976, 76 pages, cardstock reference card, "half-size paper"

2nd ed: 1982, 36 pages, Jeff Dee cover, standard paper / book paper

The font and layout change is quite dramatic, obviously.

I'm pretty confident that's a 1st edition.
