Very good, indeed.

VG the condition or "very good, I found this awesome module!"? Yeah, not sure that is VG. Maybe, maybe not, can't tell in the picture that well. And is it notched (for the bundled release of back stock in the mid- to late-80s) just above the yellow banner?

Are 1ed modules in that condition really going for $20 a pop? Got a complete set of the 1ed modules pre-re-styling (a la Ravenloft and the like) in both the solid colors and the pastels.

Well I'd imagine it is marked up a bit just for Gencon.

I loved the art work for the adventure. Ironically, years later, I dug deep into a high level character's past to dig up the memory of a certain useful scroll and figure out how to get more.

Honestly, as long as the book doesn't look like crap, my opinion about the condition rating of a book is very honey badgerish. I wanted it because I don' have access to the one in the TSR library I used as a reference for The Scarlet Brotherhood...

Liberty's Edge

LOL, honey badgerish.


wow $ 20.00 ???? lol


You should see my copy. Mint condition. Bought it when it was new and was very careful.


Fun adventure. Been a long time since I played it. Scarlet Brotherhood is also a great supplement.

Now you're making me want to dig out my copy of The Scarlet Brotherhood. Now, which box of gaming memorabilia did it put it in? Hmmm. . .


It's variable. I saw Palace of the Silver Princess (Green) in near mint condition selling for $75 at a hobby shop. I picked up the same module at a garage sale in almost the same condition for 75 cents.

Ooooh, TSR Library....


In HS circa 1983 my 10th lvl monk bit the dust in the grand finale of this awesome module. I have been working on a PFRPG conversion of this for several months, but work keeps distracting me.

Where would something like this be set in Golarion? The Sodden Lands?

Yup - prices vary a lot. I haven't tried garage sales, but I've seen good things going in the flea markets at local conventions for $3 or so. There are also occasional eBay auctions selling a big box of assorted gaming stuff reasonably cheaply. But if you're after a particular module, you can end up paying more. I got a copy of "Egg of the Phoenix" for $30 (I hadn't replaced the copy I gave to one of my players when we finished the module), and that was at the low end of the price range I found.

As for setting TSR stuff in Golarion - apart from the Al Qadim stuff, which look as though it would be easy enough to graft onto Legacy of Fire, Sodden Lands or the River Kingdoms can be good choices for many of the old settings. And some modules can probably be slotted in just about anywhere not too close to a major settlement (such as, say, Castle Greyhawk ...)

Ooooh, I'm jealous. I didn't start playing till '89. I missed out on some of the classics. And while I do own a few such classics (and a lot of stuff from '89 onward) the best I could hope for is maaaybee convincing my group to let me GM a few of them. My days as a player are long behind me. I'm not from a big part of Canada so our gaming pool (and the gamers that I'd be willing to trust) is fairly small. Somebody's gotta GM and for the last 15 years that's been me.

But man, do I long for the days as a player marching through dark tunnels with trepidation. I played through some good ones but never any from that earliest era. Oh, to be that young again.

Most of my modules are well-used. The same goes for most of the early rulebooks, too - my 1E PH/MM/DMG definitely show their age, and the 2E ones are pretty worn too. The only exception is my very first set of rulebooks (a 1976 three-volume boxed set, plus supplements), because I bought those on a trip to the states, and I didn't manage to find a gaming group until I moved to the USA myself a few years later (by which time AD&D had come along).
