Right that, dork is the correct word (reminiscent of Dork Tower). You obviously have never seen a HackMaster manual.  :D

I guess I will always be a demi-geek.  I will never reach uber-nerd status.  :wink:

After you reach demi-geek, you have to seek out and challenge an uber-nerd. If you can defeat him in single combat, he falls to demi-geek level and you rise to take his place. You must then fend off challengers.

Winning bidder is from the U.S.; Cougie was runner-up. Or I could be missing something — is "airdave" a Cougar alias or something?

I didn't check who won the auction guys.  However, we all know coug's track record with international shipments via m-bag.

Funny, I just noticed this today myself.  Completely ridiculous.  

Apparently, there is a whole category of "mystery auctions" - all run with the same principle.

Didn't Peter Griffon fall for this one? He should have taken the boat!

I've seen a couple of D&D-related auctions like that over the years, but I've never seen one end happily; this guy is just begging to no longer have a 100-percent feedback ratio.

People trying to get rid of their junk should just walk out to the trash can, not clutter up eBay ...  :roll:  :roll:  :roll:

Even if this guy knows absolutely nothing about the items he's selling, I wonder where the heck he read "Forgotten Realms" in this lot.

( Not that I would ever condone the use of such a vile creation such as decaf :) )

Interesting miniatures with this basic set:

"This is a played with set but I believe it is complete except for the 1 small soldier"

Perhaps good for a little "Sturmgeshultz and Sorcery"...

Anyone need a set of dices?   :D

(I think that is the plural plural of die. Ya know, 1 die, a set of dice, a ton of dices)

Well, one could conceivably imagine some sort of crazy dice variants -- for example, shaped like polyhedrons instead of the standard cube.  If these variants actually existed, refering to all the multiple types of dice as "dices" could be considered correct.  :wink:

For example:
person --> people --> peoples
*die --> dice --> dices
*mouse --> mice --> mices
