First, does this book exist? I've only recently come to hear of it, but, I've also never really looked, so before I do, I would like to make sure it, in fact, is a producible object.

Second: is it difficult to find?

Third: worth much? Just looking to see what I should reasonably expect to pay if I do locate one.

1) Yes. (I own a copy.)

As a side note, there are 3 Primal Order sourcebooks: Knights: Strategies in Motion, Pawns: The Opening Move, and Chessboards: Planes of Possibilities.

2) Yes.  All the Primal Order stuff save the core book can be difficult to find.

3) I can't say for certain, since it doesn't seem to come up that often, but I'd say not particularly.  $10-$20 depending on condition seems to be about what I've seen it go for.

I'd say most TPO books usually sell in the $15-35-ish range.  Some slip by on the cheap, but not too many.

Ah.  So they may go a bit higher than I've paid in the past.  Fair enough.

I'll admit it: I'm cheap. ;)

Ah, thanks. Now I know there are even a few more Primal Order books.

There are rumors of a Bishops book that was never published, and a few others out there, too.  For more info, see viewtopic.php?t=674

Thanks for the link, Allan.  Confirmation that I wasn't crazy because I recall seeing a TPO core book with a different cover. :D

Unfortunately, it also means confirmation that there is one more book for me to track down. :(
