I have no experience with "I Sold It". What's their problem? I did ask them for a list of what modules were included in this lot and they told me they couldn't provide me that information.


They are basically small stores or kiosks where you drop off your items (vacuum cleaner, old tv, clothes, D&D items) and they will auction the item off for you, taking about 50% of the profit.  My problems with them are they will not provide you with information, as you discovered, and have no knowledge of the products they are selling as a rule (they should call it "I Sold It....As Is"). But the worst thing is they won't ship to PO Boxes (they use UPS exclusively), which would normally not be a problem, but then your mailing address on your credit card must match your home address, and my bills are all sent to my PO Box (as I'm sure many others are).  So I'm unable to even bid on an I Sold It auction, even if I was so inclined...

Personally I'd say that sounds like a "design flaw": almost worth mentioning to the franchise owners on the off-chance another mega-sale does come up...

On the flip side, at least you didn't buy an actual franchise;

Poor guy.  Someone ought to put in a pity bid.  Sounds like he may do something awful to himself otherwise.  :(

I was going to go on a huge rant about D&D items not being antiques -- and then I saw the picture... this one looks like it was recovered from a dig site.  :)

Hrmm... apparently not quite as good as the 1st MM <improvstone> just won (and I thought that was an over-trimmed scan...) :P

Ok, maybe I am just being dumb here, but does anyone here know what the hell this thing is and how exactly it applies to FRPGs?  :?

I'm not sure, but it seems for it's that "other" fantasy role-playing...the kind that uses whips & chains instead of dice. ;)
