Thank you. I'm not much into 3E.

OK, moron, when you put a line in like "My nerd days must be left behind", don't you think it's remotely possible you might alienate those interested "nerd" buyers.

There's hidden text there. I managed to read it:
"Fine, if you need a liner for your roc cage."

I recently asked the seller of a "Fine" product if his publication included the crucial separate map.

His way of dodging the question was to answer that because of the age of the publication he feared to remove it from its bag.

Brilliant move, dude.  Way to avoid a difficult question by making your product  look even worse!

This is the problem with home brew grading systems.  Fine can now be dogcrap condition, just read the description!

Everyone has their own interpretaions; however, ther is a bit of common sense involved. Its' a fine example of a piece of crap.

The funny thing is, at first glance I read the previous owner's name as "Kevin Blow".

back to the red wine...

Red wine, excellent idea. My BAC is WAY below normal.
It doesn't even rate as GOOD. It may be FAIR, probably is POOR, but FINE? Not even close.

Nice lot about to sell for too much, but that's not funny.  What's laughable is cougar's "question".  You know you're screwed when... :roll:

(Note the conspicuous lack of the word "titanium"...)

Especially the note about individuals lying about him or M-bags.

The thing is...if cougar is so worried about packs of lies being told about him, why does he buy from his victims using his seller identity?   8O

Why not make a persona or two to purchase items?  If his business practices are righteous, he should quickly accrue tons of positive feedback.  Right?   :cry:

No one could tell lies about him and he would not have to worry at all.   :wink:

I don't get it.

Because he could not brag about 5540 feedback and Dung-rated PowerLamer.

I'm still buying stuff off him I'm afraid to say. Got an adventure called "Forest of Doom" from him for gbp 2.30 last week and I have no idea what it is at all or what it's worth hehe! :)

Still he *is* cheap for UK buyers on common items if you bid a little lower to cover his higher-than-average shipping he does deliver in a reasonable time. Good for picking up 2.5 Ed stuff I need that I'm not prepared to pay good money for, likewise other things I'll only buy cheap as they're low priority like Ravenloft, Birthright and Hollow World etc. Ebay's a free market to me and I vote with my wallet :D

Thankyou very much for the info :)

I've probably payed more than it's worth but can't recall seeing one for sale in the UK so I'm happy :)

I don't know if you paid too much for the simple fact that it is one of my favorite adventures of all time. Don't know why, but every time I've played it/used it in a game it was fun, but not too long. I hope you enjoy it too!
