I have started monitoring prices on the Wiki, but there are not many there yet. There really is quite a small volume of Harn traded on Ebay compared to some systems.

http://wiki.acaeum.com/wiki/Prices:H%C3%A2rnMaster

The Encyclopedia Harnicas still average about $10
Araka-Kalai $15
The Ivinia items maybe $10 without the box
Harnmaster module - a mint one can get $20 + , but poor quality often pass in for less than $10
Gods of Harn and Cities of Harn $10 - $20

The Kingdom modules are the most valuable and sought after
Menglana, Lythia, Rethem and Melderyn will get $20 to $40 depending on the condition.

Now having given away the value, I am actually looking for decent copies of Lythia, Rethem and Melderyn and would be interested to make an offer depending on condition and completeness (do they have the colour maps?) if you are interested!  :)

I would say that Cities of Harn is more in the $20-35 range, myself, but my tracking of Harn titles has been pretty spotty in general.

If the Encyclopedia Harnica is complete, I'm sure it could fetch pretty money (I'd surely bid on them  :P ).

Thanks very much for the info.

Will have a look at the condition, maps, etc.

I think that the Kingdom modules are all in excellent condition and unplayed, but have not really gone right the way through them all. My next job!

Thanks very much again.

Regards,
Mary

Well, if you could drop a line in the Classified section when you will put the books for sale...  :roll:

Today I had the opportunity to meet and visit with Tom Dalgliesh at his home near the British Columbia border. We talked games and gaming history for an hour or so. Very cool guy. The originator of block wargames. He is from Scotland originally.

Nice. Harn seems to still be going strong. Just about everything has been reprinted over the last year or so, and Columbia Games is still releasing new Harn material regularly.

They had a (small) booth at Gen Con last year, and will have one this year as well.  So those in Indy can stop by and visit them.
