   Hey, maybe it's like buying a rifle....the one that actually got used in battle is more valuable than one from an armory.  Right?

    $30 is funny...probably has more to do with sentimental value than the item itself.

    I say go for it, dude!   If you must sell your trusty old sidearm, make sure it gets a true, Viking funeral!

My guess is that the seller browses these forums, and that it is a reference to this thread: ;)

It is actually the same seller. First time around it didnt sell, so they relisted it. :wink:

<edit> Oops, it is actually the same auction, just a 10 day one. :oops:

Okay, it makes you wonder where the hell people get this stuff:

Dungeon Masters Guide 1st Edition | eBay

Do people just make this kind of crap on the fly to try and make their auction more interesting or is it me? :?

Ahh, you refer, of course, to the infamous "naked DMG" a thankfully shortlived edition with some VERY dubious artwork ;)

Aww. Give the guy a break. He's selling off his life long collection and his hands are shaking. It can be really emotional parting with D&D stuff.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . radishes.

Pokemon 1st Edition Basic | eBay

I don't know anything about Dunegons and Dargons either.  :D   But it is a very clean basic set for anyone who might want one.

Ad&d Miniatures | eBay

His description says "Trust me, you wont find a sealed Chainmail".  If I am not mistaken there have been numerous SW copies up on Ebay in the last several months.  I think maybe he needs to keep his collection and get a job to pay his tuition instead.  :P
