I was at the LGS today and chanced upon a copy of the Barsaive boxed set for Earthdawn 2nd edition. I snapped it up because it was only five bucks. This thing is in excellent condition: the cards are unpunched and it even comes with the mail order slips from days of yore.
I also picked up a copy of CJ Carella's Armageddon RPG, also five bucks and in absolutely pristine condition. I very much doubt that I'll ever run it, but I enjoy Carella's work a great deal... and copies of this start at fifty bucks on Schmamazon, so I guess if I really dislike it I can sell it and actually make a few bucks.
