Someone has been hooked. I'm confused as to what is actually being sold though. It's about clear as mud. If it is for the whole lot I guess the current price isn't too aweful but definitely not a deal...

This book was literally on fire:

Looks like they took that whole fire breathing red dragon thing a little too far. 8O

Look how dumb this auction is:



Batteries not Included: DVDs & Movies | eBay



Why the hell would he just not put this in his store and let the buyer comethrough that way :idea:

Sadly, it is very "fraigle".

I am constantly stunned at how poorly people spell in their auctions. Do these idiots even proofread? I can understand a single minor mistake, but this is a frequent occurrence.

Well, he spelled "Dungeons" correctly 1 out of 3 times.  33% isn't bad . . . is it?  Especially when the price for a Fiend Folio is so reasonable.   :D  :D

Surprisingly, no.  Even if you could get a chimp to type, instead of smashing the mouse into the keyboard repeatedly, the chance of it correctly (randomly, because chimps don't know how to read/write/spell) spelling a 8-letter word would be 1 in 302231454903657293676544.  And that's a chimp, not a monkey.  



Monkeys would just rip apart the keyboard foraging for crumbs and insects.  :)  



However, oversized lemur-men with complete mastery over the forces of magic makes for a pretty cool PC race.  I really should finish that...

Or you could just use a liger. After all, they are bred for their magical skills.
