(However, if you cross my palm with dollars...?).

Interesting how "ethics" are to be found everywhere these days! :)

Hmmm. I think I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. I asked him a question:

"Lemme see if I get this straight: I can win the auction for $5, pay $4.05 shipping ($18.80 overnight) for you to E-MAIL me a file. So $9.05 for you to play my game for me?"

Overly harsh? Or underly? I was going to ask what he charged to actually come and sit in for my gaming sessions, although it would be very hard for him, considering I use custom rules that make it pretty much impossible to powergame.

You can't be harsh enough.

Dungeon Masters Guide | eBay

Looks like this guy is trying this again. This has to be the 4th or 5th time over the last 9 months for this same exact auction now. Each time the starting price and the BIN are exactly the same. I wonder when thisseller is finally going to figure out that this book is NOT worth what he is asking for it. :roll:

If he wasn't trying to scalp on shipping he would probably have a sale.

Item page now states: "The seller ended this listing early because the item is no longer available for sale."

BTW, love the Q&A at the bottom — the first one is from me; the second from DL39. Classic.

Must be worth a little bit, at least. David, didn't you sell yours for a NM 1st print brownie? That would mean it's worth at least 2.5K or so.

Got this today...he might have mentioned the water damage even though it was slight......true to his name and never again will I send them money.

Someone had mentioned that it looked like water damage after I bought it. I had thought it might have been plastic and the effect that occurs with scanning sometimes. It was slight water damage.

The picture pretty much clarifies water damage. Nothing else leaves waves like that.

Well, I think this also proves David's theory on the R1-4(smelling of heavy smoke) which also happens to be listed in F-VF condition by him.  I guess the message to be told, if it hasn't been told enough already, but avoid him at all costs. Not only does he have misplaced arrogance about his own *knowledge & skills*, but his also clearly not an honest person.  Seems to me the only thing that he is honest about is what his eBay user ID is.

Now the question is, who wants to bet that he now decides to make another *appearance* here again after reading these posts, trying to defend his business practices and his appraising skills. :roll:  His defense will be that it is not actually water damaged, but rather humidity challenged. :roll:

"I have done the calculation on how much all of this is worth in retail and its way over the 1.500 US dollars."

:lol:  :lol:  :lol:

Wait...that's a decimal point, not a comma.  $1.50 sounds about right.

Sorry to hear that confirmation, but predictable from the auction :(

Don't think I said they were certain to smell of heavy smoke, but the Polys from the same original seller were certainly smokey... and almost the same price as their Dragon 1-300 (= $300), too. :?
