hey mark

i didnt think you were "rude". i think it could have been worded a lil more advantageously, but that aside, looks like your value was pretty much spot on there. well done for that. its not much of a consolation really, but still nice to know when youre on the mark. once he pays fees on that lot, hes gonna pretty much be left with that anyway.

Are you criticizing the spelling?

Colin is a version of Collin.  I believe that Colin Powell spells his name that way.

I just checked...yes, he does.

I once knew a fellow named Kawlin.  (He was chinese, however, so he may have been going for a phonetic spelling of the name.)

I don't get it. Let me go listen to k-fed's music and drop my IQ 20 or so points and I'm sure it will make sense.

didnt know where else to post this, so thought i would just put it here.

each day, ebay sends me a search for "rare" items. each and every feckin day, right at the top of the listings are always:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... :B:SS:UK:1

and

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll? ... :B:SS:UK:1

well as they are homemade items and by the pure volume the guy has listed, i dont think they are even common. they are too common to be common!!

i am gonna send him a msg just for the hell of it:

question to seller:

"hey there. just wondered about this item and a few others you have listed. you quote it as rare, yet i have prb seen a new one of these every few days listed by you on my ebay searches. so is it that rare? just wondering like. Regards...Kj"

lets see what amusing reply i get...

Well...rare as opposed to Keep on the Borderlands.

   I like this guy.  He has about eight hours on his CAD or other mapping program invested and he's trying to make a buck.

   Anyone who cannot draw a few shapes on graph paper, or think of incredibly clever names like "Temple of Blood" might actually pay the money.  

   I hope he rakes it in.   :)

If he'd just not post so damn many I'd be fine with it, but yeah it is sort of just one of those things you have to deal with on Ebay.

well give the guy his due - quick reply:

Hi,

 Yes, Rare is a subjective term. My items are rare in that I am
the only person selling them, and that they have been produced
in limited quantities, and that there really is nothing else out there
like them. (No Map Sets of Similiar Quality, No Tome of 1000
"Unique"items, No DM Kit.)

 Less than 500 of each map set has been produced. Less than
200 DM kits. Less then 3000 Tomes. Most items produced by other
publishers are produced and released in quantities of 10's of thousuands,
and are available in book stores or various online shops.
The stuff I sell is not. When I stop selling these SSD items, you
will probably never see them again. I should state that the Tome I sell,
is out of print, and will never be reprinted. (Yes I have a bunch,
but when then gone, there gone.)  Its important to state items as
rare, because people might pass up something they may never
be able to get again. The rare of statement just clues "one time" ebayers
to look closer. Sorry for any confusion. I hope this clears things up.

Best Regards,
Jon Volden

Fair reply .... although having a look at the product I find the qrtwork to be sort of bland.

Wow - it must be good though - look at this from the auction description -

"Lots of challenges, a great set of maps!
Useful for novice & expert DM/GM's alike!
- The Grand Dungeon Lord, DM Guild


What a great title - kinda like the masons of roleplaying :lol:


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