Title: Airboy's RPG Stuff That He Must Sell or Give Away
Post by: airboy on February 20, 2018, 07:43:22 PM
I did a very brief look through of my game storage boxes.  I'm going to have to sell (if it is worthwhile), give away, or pay someone to convert to PDF (or buy in PDF) all of it.  Pretty much everything except for perhaps my D&D hardbacks.

In general what I have is:

a] Every Judges Guild D&D product released.  Every single one.
b] Every Issue of the Pegasus (D&D magazine from Judges Guild)
c] Some of the copies of the Dungeoneer (very early Judges Guild Magazine)
d] Almost every Call of Cthulhu thing printed through about 1996
e] A set of modules and games from Heroes
f] Boxed rule set and a number of modules from Paranoia
g] A fairly limited number of D&D modules.  I think I sold most of the D&D stuff 20 years ago for more than a $1,000 total on ebay.

Even the brief look I took made me sick.

There is some stuff that I'm going to replace.
The actual valuable stuff (say anything worht $10+) I'm going to sell.
The rest I'll look for a home.

This is unfortunately going to be a long, slow process - or a couple of days of complete sickness process.

I hate to get rid of all of this, but in its current form (allergic to me) it will all have to go.

I'm probably not going to do much of anything until May because I cannot afford to get sick during the semester.  I can get sick later.

I really, really, really hate this.

One thing I'm giving away (if I drive I'll take it to Origins) are the 12 issues of Pegasus magazine from Judges Guild

Very eclectic and some of it is outstanding.  Mostly D&D oriented but some Traveller, Runequest and other stuff.

I checked on RPG Now and I can replace all 12 issues for $15 in a pdf.  I checked the value of ebay/amazon - and it is not worth selling.

I know someone who might be interested in a few of those things. Let me get in touch with him tonight

Did you get me email earlier?

Why don't you laminate some of the single-sheet stuff? Also, if you put some of the books out in bright sun, fanned open, for a few hours you will kill off much of the mold spores.

Yes, but I cannot even look at the stuff.  I made myself sick just doing a very quick box opening and flip through.

Both my allergies and my wife's allergies are so severe that nothing works for paper deterioration except getting it out of the house.

I might be interested in the D&D modules depending on which ones they are.  I have several series where I have one or even two of three.  And I appreciate the effort it will take you to go through all this, so, I'll be here when you're ready.

I bought, downloaded, and briefly looked at the Pegasus Magazines.  They have a lot of material for:
a] original D&D - especially city based adventures.
b] Traveler
c] Morrow Project of all things.

I enjoyed Pegasus more than the Dragon magazine.

I would check these against either eBay and/or RPGgeek.com

I think Paranoia stuff is still in decent demand, and you might not get over $15 for each, but as a bundle, I think this might command $50-60 or so, and is probably worth at least taking 5-10 minutes to confirm/deny.

Note on all of these materials.

Most of these are close to mint unless I picked them up used.  I stored everything for 30+ years in heavy cardboard magazine storage boxes.  Everything has been kept in a smoke-free house.  They are not mildewed or water-damaged.

For those who do not know me, my allergies are fierce and non-acid free paper naturally deteriorates over time.  As it deteriorates I become allergic to it.  For "normal folks" the material is just old and should not trigger any allergy issues.

Brant - if you want to check this and think you can get rational money for it, I can haul it to Origins and you can sell it.  Just give me 50% of the net sales.  It is not worth it to me to list anything if I cannot get a list of $15 per item.

Brant - you might want to lock this thread to the top of the page until 2018 Origins.  For the right person, this is a gift of a lifetime.

Guys, I leave for Origins this Friday.  I'm going to the Southern Fried Game Expo then to NC to visit family and then to Columbus.

If I don't know to have it packed by Thursday, you will be out of luck unless you wish to pay postage.

You've got the list of stuff from me, but if you want to PM over a list of what's unclaimed, I'll try to get a quick Origins sale arranged with a Facebook group I'm part of and let you know what to bring.

Other than what you requested, nobody has spoken.
