Stopped by Emerald Comics on campus today and picked up some $3 boxed sets and $2 modules. As much as I love buying new products, the bang for your buck when buying used is insane! Plunk down $22 and get four boxed sets and five modules!
Of course, I already owned the 1981 Expert books (but not the box! I had to have it!), and the Companion Rules... but what the hey, how could I pass up getting back up copies for $3?
Thanks Emerald Comics! BTW, if you live in the Eugene area Emerald Comics is on 13th in between Hilyard and Alder, it has a ton of used 1e, 2e and 3e, Gurps, Rifts, Ars Magica, Runequest, Shadowrun, and more. Other good local spots are the shop that looks like a castle in Glenwood on Franklin, about 1/2 mile from the bridge to Springfield (cheap 2e boxed sets, some 1e hardcovers) and Evolution Games on 24th and Hilyard in the little shopping complex that includes Sundance Wine Sellers and Humble Bagel (they even have some used Stormbringer material for $5 each, and I recently picked up a bunch of 1e modules there, all softcover used RPGs are $5 and hardcover are $10, so it is a little pricier than the other two).
