30 September 2012
By now it's been over 5 years since I've last played Dungeons & Dragons as pen-n-paper RPG. I do really miss to play this great game, but I doubt I'll ever be able to play it again. Not only do I not know enough players of the old 2nd edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons system here in Alkmaar, but also my state of mind just makes it impossible to concentrate and thus play any game with more than 3 people around me (or for longer than 1 hour as well).
Then what to do with over 5 meters of RPG books that I have here on the shelves? I could sell them, but what to ask for them, and should I sell them all at once or separately? The estimate worth for a collector was over €2500 about 10 years ago, and now I have no clue what it's worth.
Then there are also the more uncommon (even rare) RPG systems that I have here. The Alternity RPG system (also from TSR) is one I really love, but it's so rare that in The Netherlands there are probably only a handful of players who even know it (which is probably because of me). Of this system I have all there is available, except for one GamesCon give away, which I still would like to get my hand on.
Other highlights in my collection are some pretty rare AD&D items. I have the Forgotten Realms Tara Tur boxed set in EX/NM condition, the whole Spelljammer setting in EX/NM/M (some even still in shrink!), and the Planescape Planes of Conflict boxed set (of which there were only made 250 ever afaik) in NM condition.
I think I should start by making an inventory of all RPG books I have and it's condition, before I even start to wonder about the value of those books. Then check on the price of the objects and see how to sell them. Perhaps I'd drop a full list on the Dutch Marktplaats site and see who wants what. Of course, I'll drop a list here as well. I can imagine that some of my readers might be interested in certain books...
