Changed it, evidently, since it looks okay now.

Not a thing fuzzy's rule :D , the Hot Rodders have the pair of six siders, gamers should have fuzzy 20's. And on the rearview of what I consider the ultimate in gamer transportation the Pacer or Gremlin you'd be totally styling.

On a side note; if MTV wanted to pimp-my-ride, I'd give them an old 70's Chevy-custom-van, tell them to turn it into a mobile game room with enough room for six "players", a swiveling captain's chair for the DM, and of course those fuzzy 20's would adorn the rearview.

It would be a nice showpiece at cons.  :lol:

Described as: "Module is Near Mint."

Should be described as: "Module isn't anywhere Near Mint."

I think most of us know that isn't Satan, (it's an efreet), but an early Dragon and one of the "Best of Dragon" magazine did have stats for Satan himself.  And he's ridiculously powerful, at least by 1st Ed. standards.  If someone has the CD-ROM handy, search for an article titled "The Politics of Hell" and tell me the which one...

I haven't got the CD to hand.  But I'd put money on it being #28 as I remember it being in the same copy as "Awful Green Things From Outer Space".

Email to the seller:

I looked at your opening bid on this item.  You can't be serious, can you?

Fucknut, huh? Uh ... good one.

Well, he just got in under the wire, but this fool came from behind to win the 2004 Moron of the Year Award. Let's see ... zero feedback, ridiculous expectations, hyper-sensitive, and foul-mouthed ... yep, that's what I'm looking for in a seller.  :?

Whoa, Whitey looks pretty battered now. I wonder if he makes it into the new year? Go Whitey, go!

WOW!! Can you give me a link to one of his listings??  :wink: I am in serious need of some really tacky abuse, before the new year comes up......

Harami posted it a few messages above this one.
The funny thing is, I merely asked him if it was a typo, and I told him I had seen it posted on the forum.

Wow.  That response was just a wee bit overreacting, dont'cha think?  :)  

Seriously though, I've been looking for a bargain basement price on one of these for a while (I'm cheap, but eventually I'll get one for $5.  It's all about being vigilant and patient.)  The median seems to be about $26.  NM could go for $40 to 50, maybe a little higher with Xmas newbies, etc.  

$1000 is absolutely ridiculous.  Especially since a large number of "1st printings" turn out to be 2nds or even 3rds.  :roll:
