So much for the $80 BIN on that one... ;)

I am surprised this lot went this cheap.  Granted the seller really didn't do themselves any favors in their titling, but I still figured that this would have gone higher with those What PC sheets with the Lizard Logo in there.  The thing that turned me off was the obvious water damage to the Dungeon Geos as I was worried that it migh be present in everything else as well, but I never got around to asking about it.


I'll let you know when I get it.   8)

I'm probably going to be putting up most of it back on eBay.

- Listed in the wrong place (Books\Non-Fiction)
- Seller has less than perfect feedback (95.9%).  Doesnt follow through on shipping the item.

I'm not surprised.  I am surprised the idiot is still an active member on Ebay though.

Are we even sure that is a Cthulhu Deities & Demigods? The seller doesn't list how many pages in the book anywhere, nor does he say that those Myhos are included.  This book could just as easily have been a 3rd print.

Agreed. No clue on auction itself, and it looks darker like a 3rd anyway.

I e-mailed the seller and they said 144 pages.. I was surprised they didn't include that detail in the auction after I asked for it.

I was about to snipe, but got caught up in a conversation :oops: Of course, the bidder may well have known the version too, and he still would have won it for $20 or something (which is all I would have bid).

Given the feedback of this idiot I would never have bid.  The pain of having to claim back funds far outweighs the chance of it being worth anything...

The Wham PC sheets are the side pull ones.  They have all been pulled and there is no cover.  All the sheets are there, only one has writing in light pencil.

I got tripped up on an auction for a 1st print DMG. Seller has used a stock pic of a 1st print, but it turned out to be a later print when I received. Was partly my fault for not confirming, but I was happy seller fully reimbursed me after I returned it.

Wow! Nice looking lot with some items that don't come up very often. With the PotVQ included I would have thought it would have gone for more  8O

I hoped it'd somehow escape the notice of the heavy hitters, as the seller hadn't listed PotVQ in the auction text - hence my lowball bid.  Not a snowball's chance.   :cry:

What sold for so much was Palace of the Vampire Queen.  The other items were a $20+ lot.

Well, I was bidder #1, and I know there were a few others here who noticed it.   :wink:

Oh rats, I actually saw that auction, but I didn't notice the PotVQ.  :(

Ditto - right past me too - from the Q&A looks like it was missing a page or two??
