I called the store Aneoth. TM reg. applied for on monster manual, no printing designation on first page of players handbook, 144 page deities & demigods. I am assuming some big collector in Oregon is selling out judging from what that store has been selling of late. You already surpassed my high bid.

Thanks very much for the info.  :)

I figured as much on the MM and the DMG looks to be an early issue as well. I was hoping the DDG book had the right number of pages (Hence my first question to them, which was accompained by others). The players handdook was basically a hopeful item on my part. I am looking for a an early Print in NM or better condition, that one looks very nice, so I took a chance.

So, since you were actually able to speak with, what is your thinking on the lack of usefull replies to E-Mails?

BTW. I noticed that you have been getting some VERY nice buys on Core Rules books lately, especially on older MM's and PHB's. I am a little curious to know how many of them were First Prints?

Nice finds all...and some truly excellent prices too...

One.

The lady I spoke to was very nice. She was just an employee at their store. It must just be part of their corporate procedure to have a form reply to all e-mails.

Congrats on the First Print! Nice...
I am a bit jealous.... :wink:

All in All I think Form Replies SUCK!! :x  

Here is the standard "Corporate Policy" E-Mail that I was sent yesterday. Below is the THIRD such E-Mail that I have received thus far from these guys, after repeated inquiries about their various listings currently on E-Bay. And this is after writing o the Secondary E-Mail address they suggest TWICE in the "Corporate Policy" E-Mail immediately after the FIRST such response.

If I do win any of their listings, then I truly hope that they DELIVER their items in a more friendly way than their E-Bay On-Line customer service suggests.

BTW: How did you get their phone number? I did not see it in any of the E-Mails from them nor have I seen one in any of their listings and as far as I can tell they do not have an E-Bay Store front either.  :?

Will you send it to me, by PM or E-Mail at [email protected]? I asked for a phone number to call them in one of my responses and I've had no reply as yet, other than additional letters such as the one below, which are about as helpful as an angry wife.... and not nearly as entertaining...

Thanks, Aneoth

Thank you for your inquiry to iSold It.

At times, we receive so many that it is difficult to respond to each
person as quickly as we would like.
To assist in answering your question quickly, we have prepared a list
of Frequently Asked Questions.

If, after following the suggestions listed below you still need help,
send an email to [email protected]. When available, please
include an ISI number, eBay number, and the Title of the Item in your
message.  

Thank you for your interest in iSold It!

*******************************************
iSold It Frequently Asked Questions

--- THE AUCTION ---

What is NR?
NR means "No Reserve", meaning there is no hidden starting bid for the
auction.

Do you have a Buy It Now or end auctions early?
No, we do not end auctions early or offer a Buy It Now option. All of
our auctions go for the full duration.

What will my shipping and handling costs be?
To find shipping and handling costs for your item, scroll down on the
auction page, until you see a yellow shipping calculator button. Select
your service (US Postal Service Priority Mail or UPS Ground), type in
your zip code, and you will see your shipping and handling charge. If
the calculator is down, try again after a few minutes.

Can you ship outside of the United States?
We do not ship internationally at this time.

Do you take Money Orders or checks?
No, we do not. We can only accept PayPal and Credit Cards (MasterCard,
Visa and Discover) and Debit Cards with the Visa or MasterCard logo.

Can you send me additional photos of the item?
Unfortunately, due to the high volume of items we receive each day we
cannot take additional photos of specific items.

What does "Powered on but not tested" mean?
This means that we have plugged in and turned on the item to see if it
started up.

What does "Sold As Is" mean?
Since we cannot fully test every function of an item, some items are
Sold As Is. These items cannot be returned.

--- CHECK OUT ---

I received an e-mail but I cannot check out. What can I do?
If the link in your e-mail is not letting you check out properly, you
can visit the auction page, scroll down and click on the yellow Andale
Checkout button. This will guide you through the rest of the process.

I purchased multiple items, can you combine my shipping?
No, currently our system does not support combined shipping.

I have not received an invoice for the item.
After each of our auctions close, we automatically send an email to the
winning bidder. At times, spam guards may prevent that email from
reaching you. If you have not received an invoice email, you can simply go
to the auction page and scroll down and click on the yellow Andale
Checkout button and you will be able to proceed from there.

Thanks again for your interest in an auction from iSold It.

If, after following the suggestions listed above you still need help,
send an email to [email protected]. When available, please
include an ISI number, eBay number, and the Title of the Item in your
message.

What is the large fold out map from? Is that part of B1 or G1? I don't recall seeing it before.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

Not for a listing with about a third of it being Dragon Lance.... never did get into it...
The only Non-DL item in that listing that I might be interested in I already have 6 copies of, two of them SW, so nope...

Nice picture though.  :roll:  Shows lots of clarity and detail doesn't it? 8O

YOU complain? I was landed a shipping bill of $ 130  8O  8O  8O  being told to choose between USPS Parcel Post or UPS Ground (still more expensive and with a high risk of customs fees...). Argh! If the package is not here very fast, I'll claim my money from PayPal very quickly.

And that's after you pointed out it's against eBay rules to overcharge on shipping?
(That's 2 * 25 kilo M-Bags by surface mail plus a $30 handling charge, I think).

Do "books" not count as zero-rated with regards import/customs duty into Italy?

There is a big difference between around the world and a 2 hour drive to this sellers doorstep! He even charges a $5 handling fee for local pick-ups!
I wonder if he charges that for people who come in off the street?
