And I saw the two volume print on demand set at Gen Con this year. Not as quite as glossy pages as original ptolus, but sill VERY nice:

"The print edition of Ptolus is a two volume set. Each book is hardcover and full color. You will also receive the digital extras for download."


Edit:

And wow, this is a STEAL for $150 BIN price with FREE shipping!:

I have my eyes on that map to see if it sells. I have been considering selling mine and a few other items to further my DF fund. That map is crazy cool but we never use it. But it would be nice for a group that regularly plays in Ptolus. I haven't had the heart to let go of it yet though. The restock may tempt me however.

Re:Favorite Sourcebooks etc. 2 Years, 8 Months ago  
My favorite sourcebooks? Oh, what a list...

From the immortal Dave Hargrave, Arduin Grimoire Vol I-VIII. It's high entropy fun and evil for all ages. Examples include creatures like the Octorilla and the Vroat, and spells like Morgorn's Spell of the Red Death, which turns its victim inside out!

For running city adventures, RuneQuest Cities is the bomb. It has random encounter tables that can provide the start of entertaining adventures. In one such encounter, the players met a group of halflings looking for a lost gem. That turned into a comedic series of events that had the whole group laughing themselves blue all night long.

Green Ronin's The Black Company Campaign Setting has the coolest rules for item quality I've ever seen. I've incorporated it into my own campaign.

Central Casting - Heroes of Legend from Task Force Games, written by Paul Jaquays, is a great source for character backgrounds.

All the World's Monsters, Vol I-III has loads of cool critters (many of them from Dave Hargrave). They're old school, but could be easily updated to D&D 3.5 or Pathfinder (or D&D 4E, with a bit of work).

The Slayers Guides from Mongoose Publishing are cool. They totally reshaped my view of hobgoblins. Far from being orc knock-offs, they're now the militant mavens of the humanoid world.

The D&D 2nd edition sourcebooks were well written, particularly the Castle Guide and The Complete Book of Necromancers.

For running Legend of the Five Rings RPG, I love Everyday Life in Traditional Japan by Charles J. Dunn.

In short, gather your sourcebooks and treasure them. Mine them for gold and make from them glittering jewels of adventure.

I actually had the $150 auction copy on my 'watchlist', but thanks to Harneloot I see the BIN. Very tempting...

I also agree with Kradlo about RuneQuest Cities.
