The juxtaposition of names is a strange coincidence with Rose Estes, author of the "Mika" Greyhawk Adventures novels... :wink:

Attain Them. Do you Ever See the Woman/Man you of Your Dreams Walk Right Past you and Wish that They were Your Love? Do you Know Someone who is with Someone that Does Not Deserve Them, But you Know you could Treat them So Much Better? Lost a Love that You Were Meant to Be With? Stop the Burning of Your Heart. End the Pain and Acquire what is Your Right to Have.

I acquired this spell in my recent Trip to Ireland. The Celts used it to Invoke the Spirits under extreme circumstances. I have experimented with this spell and have made an electronic copy of it for those who the happiness I received. I discounted it as much as possible. I paid a pretty penny for the original.

What I want to know is, why does he only have three spells for sale?  :?

   If you can send the spell by email, why can't you send a million or so?   :lol:

   And if he has a spell to capture the woman of his dreams, why not pick out an incredibly beautiful and rich woman, who has so much money that he'll never have to sell anything on Ebay again, ever?    8O

    In fact, if he can find a spell to get love then why can't he find a spell to get money?   :roll:

    A friend of mine once said:

  "No matter what you believe you can always pay someone to tell you that you're right."
 
  Now I say:

  "No matter how stupid you are you can always sell stupid to someone even more stupid than you."

    Or:

   "No matter how stupid you are you can always find something to buy that will prove you're even more stupid."

    I know an old lady who still isn't sure what the definition of "is" is.

Whenever I see things like that I have to think of the "King of the Hill" episode where Bobby joins the coven or warlocks in Witches of East Arlen. How Bobby in the end realizes if this witchcraft is so powerful why are these guys all dorks (paraphrase).

An alleged 1st printing DMG (even quoting from and linking to Acaeum) but with a photo that clearly shows (on the title page) that it is NOT a 1st printing.

Can the what appears to be '3rd printing January 1979' be explained..The first does not state a printing.
Is this two books being represented, or is this a 3rd Gamma with the cover replaced.
