More like "Good Lord, what happened to it?"  Honestly, I've run over D&D books with my car and they didn't look that bad.

Since when do barnyard animal noises become keywords for selling on ebay?

Hold on, I really don't want an answer to that, never mind....

This is laughable on many levels, but what got me was the term "hardcore gamer"...

Here is a great grouping of Dungeons and Dragons sets

Nothing wrong with the items, but precisely the wrong marketing spin...

I'm assuming that the seller is either ignorant or is trying to capitalize on the B3 of the same colour...even the mono S2s were orange.

[edit]
Wait, there's more...this one's a beauty too.  Unless you want, you know, details or something.

It is not the item itself, or the description that seems somewhat rediculous to me. Look at the shipping costs. The shipping cost is not simply an error in one spot. The cost is shown in the listing TWICE....


http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 29205&rd=1

Shipping costs:  8O  8O US $585.00 8O  8O  -  Standard Flat Rate Shipping Service (within United States).

Lincoln Nebraska is not that far from Texas!!! I could buy a 2-way plane ticket, fly to Linclon, and rent a limo to go by his house and pick it up in person for less... :roll:  :roll:

I believe that this is the lesser known "neutron star" version of the Priest's Player Pack, and weighs approximately 3700 metric tons.  The shipping cost is actually quite reasonable.  :lol:
