i've got 3 S1-4's - got carried away wanting one and ended up with three :D



S3 is one of my fave mods....i just think the idea is great, but in S1-4, it just doesnt "feel right" - thats the best way i can explain it.



mind you, talking of super-mods, T1-4 AND A1-4, i find them all more cumbersome than the originals.



DM'ing them, i feel, puts more pressure on you cos there just seems to be more to take in when you look at a thicker book. kinda an "all in the mind" thing i guess.



i have at least one of all of them, and still much prefer the seperated modules.



Al



ps. hi bruce by the way :D


Are we nearly there yet?

Yeah until you put it in the snot stew your wife spilled on the counter.

And don't forget to read the fine print, wherein the buyer gets the privilege of getting shafted for PayPal's seller fees. Actually, it's "pay pall" according to this genius.



This guy, to quote our UK friends, is a total muppet.

Another thing that is really odd:

SORRY I CAN'T SHIP TO CANADA!!!




But he ships otherwise worldwide  :?  I wonder does he have a drug conviction(Bob Probert) ?  Or doesn't he realize the South Park movie was a fictional cartoon(maybe he is a big Baldwin fan)  :wink:

Well, it's official: it really is a small world. How else can you explain logging onto a D&D collecting site and finding a reference to one of the NHL's all-time goofiest characters? We love you, Probie!

For non-NHL fans (and, yes, I realize that's most everyone), Bob Probert would be, roughly speaking, a 12th-level half-orc barbarian with an 18/99 strength, a 7 intellligence, and matching +5 Fists of Destruction.



We now return to actual D&D collecting ... apologies to everyone south of the Mason-Dixon Line, all our UK friends, and ... uh, everyone else. :oops:

Clarkie, I should have worded that better. You were still on the topic ... I'm the one posting pictures of NHL goons. And now I'm off-topic about being off-topic. :)

Canadian mail is a nightmare. They rip open everything coming in, and they damage just about everything they touch.

Hey deimos, just because you guys drink a ton of beer and say "eh" a lot does not make you chaotic evil (kind of like a bunch of dwarves if you ask me)  :P .  Maybe with the hockey season being cancelled, I would say you all are probably "neutral with evil tendancies"  :twisted:  right now, but as soon as the lockout ends I give you guys at worst a Lawful Neutral  :wink:

Shit...IMO ALL people in entertainment are WAY overpaid...look at Jackson (er...from LOTR fame...not from kiddie porn fame).  He is suing NewLine for more cash!!!  



Of course, I also believe that the owners/management are making WAY WAY WAY too much cash...then again, if the upper class and the free market are removed..we are left with communism/socialism...


May Eru's light shine upon you always.

You guys are not going to believe this one.



Ships ONLY to the UK!! :? 8O :evil: :roll: :( :cry:



Sorry was going through all kinds of emotions when I read that notice on the listings. Read below to see why....



Take a close look at some of the loose items in the red folder



"A folder full of home made adventures, maps and manuscripts"



and check out the lower right picture showing a yellowish colored item in particular!!



(loose photocopied pages in a ziplock bag)  he says.... :lol: :lol:



cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... Track=true



There are several other rare and tasty morsels as well.



Lot also includes a nice looking White Dwarf 2, a White Dwarf 6, a Coverless Jade Hare, and a Tegel Manor!! :cry: :cry: :cry: :cry: :evil: :evil: :evil:


"Guys, I am starting to think Tegel Manor might be haunted..."

which appears several times in the listing.
