Before the realisation...

After the realisation...

The second valuation is the appropriate one. This is one of the holy grails of RPG collecting. It was a weird D&D adventure published for the 1986 Stoke-on-Trent National Garden Festival by TSR's UK division. The map is based on the Festival site and surrounding car parks believe it or not. Like the revised description says, only about 600 were printed, and most weren't sold. They tried to sell the remained at the Games Day convention, but the majority were pulped. There are plenty of rarer RPG items, but because this was published by TSR themselves, with a regular module code (ST1 - for Stoke-on-Trent), it's a must-have for any D&D completist. And there are plenty of those.

One day, I'd like to have one in the Shop, but £3,250 is too high. (£25 wouldn't have been though. Oh well...)

I had the 1981 D&D Basic Set and Expert Set, and the 1st ed AD&D books (though not the ORIGINAL Deities & Demigods with Cthulhu in it) as well as quite a few of the dungeon modules. Unfortunately though, they were all well-used and not worth anything when I decided I finally wasn't going to use them anymore.

We had a woman in one of the villages here who came to us and offered us to buy their heirloom icon (a large and beautiful one) which was in their family forever for 150 euros. Her son was sick and she also could not work because she had to look after him and they were in debt. We know the owner of one of the main galleries in London specialising in icons, including Russian icons and we consulted the guy. He was stunned and told us that he was prepared to purchase it for 8,5K GBP, which would be over 10K euro.

We found a way to help them and send the guy for rehabilitation to Romania (he is doing great) and have them keep their heirloom icon too. The woman was stunned to learn that her icon costs more than twice of what her house does. Stories like this made our stay here so interesting and exciting.
