A local used book shop had all these modules for CAN $2.50 each. Plus, I got a 10% discount because I have a city buss pass. :wink:

A2 Secret of the Slavers Stockade
CM1 Test of the Warlords
CM2 Death's Ride
D1-2 Descent into the Depths of the Earth
N2 The Forest Oracle
S1 Tomb of Horrors
U2 Danger at Dunwater
UK4 When a Star Falls
UK7 Dark Clouds Gather

And they are all in really good condition. It was a great day! :D

Great find!  Shows that you never know what's hidden in a used book store.

Congrats!

What about the bus pass discount...  would you mind saying where-abouts?  Here in t.o. public transit seems to make the rules...  :?

Cheers,

I'm in Edmonton. The store is Wee Book Inn in the downtown core. They always give a discount to anyone with a City of Edmonton Transit bus pass or a student ID card.

The store had them for less than a day before I came in. They don't get such modules very often and they usually re-sell really fast. I'm lucky I saw them first.

There was a copy of B2 as well, but I already have a copy of that one as part of my D&D Basic Set.

At that price, if the modules were all in good condition, I would not have left any of them for the next shopper.
Even B2.

Thats a great price for them.

Good going.
At the least you can now play with your new copy and keep the other minty for your Box Set.

Nice find, especially the two UK series modules. They are both well-written and quite hard to find, at least in my experience. My personal best find was when I purchased a mint condition Deities & Demigods with  Elric/Cthulhu Mythos for a mere $7.00 in a used bookstore. I was ecstatic for a good week afterward, as I had been looking for a reasonably priced copy for several years.
