Hi all,
If you have been trying to PM us and haven't received a reply it may be because our inbox keeps filling up. Please try emailing us directly at [email protected]

BTW:Even if you aren't interested in these items please pass the word around to fellow collectors on other sites about this opportunity to get some nice stuff. We will try to throw in some 'Bonus ' items with the shipments(30th Ann. Pins, Eberon CD's, miniatures, etc).

Thanks :)

Yes , the AC4 is the only pre-pub manuscript(unless you count the Tom Wham Snit's Revenge stuff). As far as the tourneys, we do have someone interested in them so feel free to make an offer. We know the Frank Mentzer RPGA tourneys are worth a fortune but these may not fetch as much. The cool thing is a few of the copies are playtest versions that were computer printouts instead of the regular copies. Not many of these were made(only 10 or so copies of each).

We updated the list again and added ART and Foreign D&D.

Please get us your offers ASAP because others are waiting to see if they are getting the tems they made offers on.

Tonight we will try to add the non-TSR items.

Thanks for being patient,

We just added more art from these artists: Erol Otus, Willingham, and Dave Trampier.

Add us to your favorite seller list because we will be listing for a looooooooong time. A few more items will be disappearing from the list within a hour or so. Get those offers in so you don't miss out. :)

Hi there burntwire,
I have just purchased a copy of First Quest Music Album double LP
which I see you have for sale. Unfortunately mine came with the inner sleeve with the map printed on it missing. I was wondering if there was ANY chance that you could scan or copy the front and back so I can print off my own version? I know copyright is infringed but I DO have the original cover, LPs and the other insert sleeve so maybe it's not so bad :?
If you consent please let me know on this forum and the best way of you contacting me. Bit of a newbie to forums I'm afraid!
Kind Regards from the UK
Driller

I thought the economy hit the Burntwire Brothers at first, then I saw the posting date, too.

Oh yeah - now I see it. I thought that JohnHuck ahd come out of the woodwork to post again, guess I should pay a bit more attention.

(BTW Driller - where did you find the album, just out of interest?)


You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.
