He forgot to note that one purpose of the module is for the PCs to locate the legendary Rabbit Ears +3. He also neglected to say that the quest is doomed to failure because the Slave Lords got cable a couple years back. :lol:

This is laughable only in the sense that it made me laugh.  I'm almost tempted to bid.

You have to read this one.  I especially like that it includes a protective slip-cover to prevent damage!

Its a good thing they put the plastic slip cover on, I would hate to see the condition otherwise.

You've got it backwards.  The protective cover isn't to protect what's inside from what's outside.   8O   :lol:

Ok, on their own, these aren't all that funny.  But together, it looks like a case of the blind leading (and having his auction description stolen by) the blind.  :lol:

Ok, it turns out this one is just an auction for some painted miniatures, but the title made me grin.  2nd level fighter/cleric with a 16 DEX, anyone?

Looks like someone was trying to play D&D and grill at the same time.  8O   Either that or someone's toddler needs a beating.

Apparently they are merchants as well as lycanthropes.

Heh shouldn't it be $39 anyway?  I thought the DMG was $15, IIRC. ;)

thx, Jeff! :lol:

Would hate to think what "moderate" or "serious" (*shudders*) color loss might look like... 8O

(Another one for the catch-all VG grading, then? ;))

Jesus, what an idiot. Does he think anyone cares that his brother's friend's girlfriend's sister's boyfriend is a caffeine abusing workaholic? Just put the freaking specs down, man! No one cares about your life!

That and the fact that I am really not sure what one thing has to do with another:

Moronic Seller wrote:what makes this one so RARE? Simple, my collection of figures come from a smoke free home and were going to be my sons college fund


I fail to see the rationale behind it is super rare because they come from a smoke free home with the intention of being his kids college fund. :? I guess if I bought it then, being that I dont have kids yet, that automatically disqualifies it from being super rare then and therefore devalues it immediately. Seems like a good selling point. What a moron. :roll:
If I wanted to buy something that was going to devalue as soon as I owned it, I would go out and buy myself a new car. :wink:

3.0 Players Handbook signed by Gygax and Arnenson. Now how freakin ironic is that. :twisted:   What next a Woodrain box set signed by Loraine McWilliams? 8O
