I really wanted to place a bid on those sheets for the sake of humor.  :D   After all, I have a 2 + year old daughter who sleeps in a twin bed . . . but I simply didn't like the Jasmine and Rajah sheets . . . especially not for @ $14 once shipping is factored in.  Bratz are out of the question . . .

See if you can find me some Winnie the Pooh sheet sets . . . or maybe something with Tinkerbell.

I'd be willing to shell out a couple of more bucks if the seller had them listed in Roleplaying Games.  8)

Notice also that this guy's name is Titan, but it isn't Titan-Games.  It is Titan-Comics, out of Texas.

I think he really thinks it's a first print.

I think that guy has come up here in the past and IIRC KingofPain indicated that he was also a jack-ass. Must be something in the name. :?

It was either King or BadMike — maybe both — but that's how I remember it, too. Jackass alert! Shields up!

It makes me wonder . . . are they just so afraid of the world "Evil" that they can't bring themselves to actually say or write it?  

. . . Or, are they so in love with Evil that they feel it transcends it's normal definition and is actually a form of "Energy".  Perhaps, in their little cult, they worship this Energy?






. . .  Or, are they just stupid?

:D

Jeez...really gotta drink my coffee before reading posts.  Coulda swore someone called me a jackass.  Had to rub my eyes for a minute there.  :D

Yeah, Titan Comics is a seller to stay away from.  Rip-off artists of the first degree....and stupid to boot apparently.  :P

Maybe they are superstitious like hotel owners that don't have a 13th floor, a room 666, or let Jack Nicholson stay in their hotel.  :wink:

My question:

bclarkie wrote:Dear Seller, I am interested in this item potentially, but I have a question.  You have the title of this module as being listed as the "Temple of Elemental Energy", but the front cover of the book seems to indicate a different title.  Is this book really titled as the "Temple of Elemental Energy" or is it some thing else? Thanks for your time.


Lets see if I get a response and if so, what it is. :)

Okay, I just got a response to my question and it appears the seller just was not paying close enough attention.  They adjusted the auction titles.  Looks like nothing supersticious or weird going on. :)

Uh huh . . .  :?   They'll be praying to their gods of Elemental Energy tonight Clarkie . .  you shouldn't have meddled . . .

If you don't have access to Protection from Energy 10' radius, I suggest you try not to fall asleep tonight.  :twisted:

He's based in Dallas....he mostly deals in comics....his knowledge of rpgs or games is virtually nil.  Take that into account.

What's the point of including an incredibly tiny photo?

The seller says that the books belong to her son.  Apparently, she photographed them through his bedroom door keyhole!
