Post Cosmos Builder & Nation Builder
Rhuvein had good luck here in his quest for a copy of Cosmos Builder and I need to complete my collection in the series. As many of you know, my life went to s**t after I returned from my ConQuest 2006. The tragic death of my ex in December of 2007 put me way behind and I still haven't dug all the way out of that.

In any event, I'd like to find a decent copy of each of these. I ordered them way back when, but the order got botched, the master died, there was bitterness played out in the Trolls' yard and I never got the books.

Btw, I have a few C&C items for sale on www.dragonsfoot.org, so stop by if you're interested. I do have a few items I might be willing to trade for these two tomes.

Great jumpin' Jehosaphat! Wanderin' around ebay and Nation Builder really commands a premium! Probably not gonna be able to swing that for awhile unless someone is offloading their collection cheap!

Question: What's the difference?

Gary Gygax's Nation Builder hardcover supplement (grey color)
http://cgi.ebay.com/Gary-Gygaxs-Nation- ... 3efe0fb2ff

and

Gary Gygax's Nation Builder by Gary Gygax, Michael Varhola (blue color

Sounds like you need the Grey cover then! Its like the old AD&D 1st ed books. Mint Cond. DMG with the Demon cover goes for much more than the Robed DM cover in the same cond. but they are practically identical on the inside.

Just grabbed it! Have to wait for my PayPal funds to kick in, but it's a lock. Cosmos Builder is next (well, after my Greyhawk boxed set).

Glad you did . . . I saw it still available and was tempted, but I left it alone thinking you might buy it!

Enjoy!

Thanks. The Glossography got up to $30! I was sorely tempted, but passed. Next time.

Hi everyone!

I have a question. I believe to have the complete collection of Gygaxian books, but in some places over the internet one "Essential Places" book pops up that I don't own, which strangely is listed as vol. VII (where Cosmos Builder is vol. VII), and can't be nowhere found to be purchased; no trace in ebay, taht is. So, was it ever published?

Thanks for the help, pals.
