  1. There are some cool insights in that booklet to the development of OD&D and AD&D. I can't imagine paying hundreds of dollars for a copy, though!

  4. I know I've seen it for far less on eBay before. But yeah, a pdf would be most welcome.

  5. They're generally selling in the $350-$500 range the past several that have come up. A year to 18 months ago they were selling for $120-$200.

  11. I second dubeers' comment! Also, jarl, someone should make up an adventure on the scans from that ebay page. It's like some sort of DM challenge:

    "Here are two monsters and some flavor text from different modules--make it work!"

  12. Wow, $600+...someone needs to put the crackpipe DOWN. I would have balked but inderstood a hundred, maybe two. Screamed about $300. This is just raping it for all it's worth.
