Post by Princess Strega »

Part 1 / Part 2

Squee! I have the original, but I'd gladly buy it again and will at some point.

Nice to see this out.

$75 each for two volumes is pretty pricy. I see that DriveThru/RPG Now seem to be near to the limits of where they can afford to go with PoD on this book. I wonder if the second hand market is cheaper than the PoD market.

Yeah, it does err on the side of expensive. However, this option is much cheaper than trying to get the one megaboook which often goes for $200+ on nobleknight.com in excellent+ condition.

The one downside to PoD (if there is a downside to the format) is that they don't overproduce, so they don't end up dumping a number of books at cut price to clear the warehouse.

Still, I might pick up a second-hand copy in good condition. :twisted:

The 2 part pod option is no longer available for purchase.

The complete book is now PoD for $150 + s/h.
