About 30 years ago, I was introduced to pen and paper RPGs and like many, I started with an older version of D&D.  At the time this was AD&D with a healthy does of classic D&D (the BECMI sets).  We also didn't use any miniatu...

So, if GenCon is less than a month... I guess that means my wedding is coming up even sooner.  Five days sooner to be exact.  Yes... things continue to be busy and while I tried to keep up with 'Under Siege', my back has been...

Good evening folks... sometimes you just have to throw things at a wall to see if it sticks or not. My typical bundles tend to be connected in some matter be it as part of a series or at least thematic. But not tonight!

This bundle is all over the place and the only connection these books have with each other is that these are all rulebooks for different games.

What I have here, in no particular order is:

Serentity RPG
Supers! Revised Edition
Fading Suns 2nd Ed
Ars Magica 3rd Ed
The World of Synnibarr
Abyss
Space 1899
X-Plorers!

Please note that Space 1899 had detachable pages in the page of the book (it is the original hardcover book by GDW) and are no longer there. I have replaced them with laser printed copies. These pages were reference tables were meant to be detached for convenience. I wasn't the original owner but couldn't pass it up when I originally came across the book in a few years back.

This ships from Canada BUT shipping is INCLUDED to the rest of Canada and the continental United States. It will ship with tracking and the contents will be insured. In this rare instance, I will not ship international given the size and weight of the package.

I'm asking for $85 USD for this diverse bundle.

That said, it is possible that some people may ask about one or two of the books. I am willing to break up the bundle but, since this ships from Canada, you are looking at easily $20 in just shipping for an average sized book. Sadly, there is nothing resembling media mail I can offer. So, if you do the math, this larger bundle is really a good value.

Good morning folks! It's a lazy Sunday morning here in Montreal and I have another item for your consideration. From Brave Halfling Publishing, makers of the sought after and OOP Swords & Wizardry White Box Set, is something with more of a Sci-Fi flavor. The X-Plorers limited boxed set. It is first printing and numbered (121 of 200) and could be yours!

This ships from Canada BUT shipping is INCLUDED to the rest of Canada and the continental United States. It will ship with tracking and the contents will be insured. Anyone who is international will need to contact me for a shipping quote.

I'm selling this for for $50 USD (Paypal Only)

Hello faithful readers!  Sorry if there has been absolutely nothing to read here since the end of April! As some of you recall, I'm getting married and that is less than two months away.  May has been a busy month as planning...

And now... another bundle. While AD&D was my first FRPG, my second was far different and holds some fond memories and not just because I read the books. I am happy to present to you a Middle Earth Role-Playing (aka MERP) bundle!

Note that I will NOT break up the bundle.

The titles in no particular order are:

Middle Earth Roleplaying Rulebook (1st edition)
Adventure & Campaign Guidebook to Middle Earth (map included)
Lords of Middle Earth Vol.1
Lords of Middle Earth Vol.2
Treasures of Middle Earth

While all books are used, the rulebook is in great shape. It is worth noting that the spine is split on LoME Vol.1.

These ship from Canada BUT shipping is INCLUDED to the rest of Canada and the continental United States. It will ship with tracking and the contents will be insured. Anyone who is international will need to contact me for a shipping quote.

I'm selling this for for $60 USD (Paypal Only)

I'm with with you buddy. I've sold most everything moving across the country twice. I built up a pretty good sized collection and then sold most all of it again recently. Now I've decide I'm a gamer, not a collector. With a few exceptions I only own what I'm running.

One more lot for the night... I enjoy playing many different RPG systems but my first like many others was classic D&D and AD&D. Today, my go-to FRPG game is Castles & Crusades which is a game that gives you that rules-light and gaming vibe of the earlier editions but has some of the more modern refinements made popular with the d20 (3.x) system. The lot I present to you consists of four items... all created by Troll Lord Games, the publishers of C&C. In no particular order, they are:

The Castles & Crusades 'Flip Book'
The Umbrage Sage Boxed Set
Fields of Battle Boxed Set
Amazing Adventures

A few notes about the books. The Flipbook is both the C&C Player's Handbook and Monsters & Treasure book in one convenient perfect bound volume. The Umbrage Sage boxed set contains a collected volume of the first five modules in a series of adventures for C&C. Fields of Battle is a miniatures / battlesystem-type boxed set accessory. None of the cutouts have been cutout. Both boxes have minor issues with them but the contents are in mint condition. The issues consist of 'bubbling' of the printing on the boxes itself (some sort of manufacturing issue) and the inside/bottom portion of the Umbrage boxed set has split corners on one side (these are the state I received them in). Lastly, there is Amazing Adventures -- this is a different game but one that is completely compatible with the C&C material... except that it is pulp genre.

These ship from Canada BUT shipping is INCLUDED to the rest of Canada and the continental United States. It will ship with tracking and the contents will be insured. Anyone who is international will need to contact me for a shipping quote.

New weekend, another bundle -- my gaming shelf cleaning continues!

Decipher is known for the various licenses it has acquired in order to put out a variety of games... board, collectible card, and RPGs. They've done such things that involved major licenses such as the Star Wars, Star Trek, and Lord of the Rings franchises. What I am offering today is a set of books from the Lord of the Rings RPG. These are:

The Lord of the Rings RPG Core Book
The Fellowship of the Rings Sourcebook
The Two Towers Sourcebook

Sadly, there was never a Return of the Kind Sourcebook as the company began to run into some difficulties but the game and the CODA system that powers it was a solid and well-thought-of system in its own right. All three books are in great shape and in all hardcover. That said, forgive the poor picture. I took it earlier this morning and lighting wasn't the best if you need other pics, be sure to let me know.

Now that said, I will not break up this bundle.

This ships from Canada BUT shipping is INCLUDED to the rest of Canada and the continental United States. It will ship with tracking and the contents will be insured. Anyone who is international will need to contact me for a shipping quote.

How about of post-WW3 mayhem but re-imagined? Costly to produce, and with a costly sticker price the opinions on Studio 93's Twilight 2013 was split but it was a new edition to a game that won so many fans back in the day when the Cold War was still ongoing. History was rewritten in this new edition and the studio behind it ceased to exist. PDFs are still available but sometimes, you just rather have a printed book. So here one is available for anyone interested.
