Much, much worse than the kitty.  The kitty is just a lamer with delusions of grandeur.  jonb/ETC is just a thief.  In fact, there is a whole thread related to him on this forum.

Seems the kitty has smartened up a bit.  Check the bid history on that auction.

see cougars other items for sale at the moment as well - some stretch the D&D category to its limits (Fred Flintstone alarm clock 8O )

Are you (collectively) talking about jonb7839 ?  If so, I've had very positive emails back and forth with him---he seems like a good dealer.  If he's a thief, I'm definitely interested in hearing more details, before I place any bids!

refer to the return of the eastern treasure chest thread - it's the commonly held belief that jonb7839 is the current incarnation of this scumbag. If things run to form he will build up +ve feedback and then start robbing people left, right & centre.

Gro, you are playing with fire if you bid on his stuff. Be careful.

Yeah, and maybe someone should send Hugh G. Rection a warning, too.  Seems like he's bidding on a lot of jonbGHCI's stuff.  Oh, sorry, I meant jonb7839's stuff.  Don't know how I could have made that slip.

He's just way beyond hinky. First he denies any connection with ETC/GE when his standard listings are exactly the same down form and language to the exact same descriptions and way of representing his products (i.e. referring to EVERYTHING as rare, , lots of caps, etc).  He seems to be selling a lot of stuff Game Emporium purchased right before they disappeared. Then when confronted, most suspiciously comes forth with a very lame story that his "brother" died and left two storage sheds full of gaming stuff that he knew "nothing" about, he just wanted to sell the stuff and get rid of it.  Yet he shows an uncanny ability to pick out the MOST valuable items and list them with surprisingly accurate descriptions, as well as begin bidding on other D&D items from other sellers (when his avowed intention was to only sell the items he came into possession of).  Now, for someone finding themselves in possession of such a largesse they have to dispose of, it seems rather odd they would ADD to it by purchasing more, especially since they supposedly don't know anything about D&D stuff!
 But based on my rational I posted a few weeks ago, if you dont' mind trying to beat a thief and liar at his own game, his pattern seems to be building up postiive feedback and then ripping off his customers a few months down the road.  That being said, anyone buying from him should be ok for the first few months...with percentages of getting your items going down slightly each month afterwards.  Warning signs will be excuses from Jon dealing with either illness in the family or with him, school taking up too much time, computer virus messing up his files, or a totally new line of bull.  
    The moral here is "Buyer Beware", and if you bought from ETC/GE before and got ripped off, bidding on items from Jon brings the familiar phrase "Dog going back to his vomit" to my mind.

No kidding.  And here I thought we were being all hush hush. ;)
Maybe we'll have to worm this into the valuations after all...but I don't see how.

I wonder if the winner actually even thought it'd get close to that mark?

I wonder at the evaluation - how could you split that to include the prices in the Acaeum price list?

1/3 per book and that's all?

I know, and here I was teetering back and forth wondering if I should place one final bid. 8O  I wonder what Stephen(aka bombadil-tom/afoolandhis$) is going to say when he gets home tonight. :?

Can't really do that.  The MM is essentially a write-off; the PHB while nice is not the main feature here.  It'd be too difficult to figure out how much of the final auction price was the DMG, though...but I guess it gives everyone an idea what to bid next time ;)

That's one way to get the prices spiral out of control, I s'pose.

Was expecting the final to be around $125-150, though; certainly not quite so high. (And that was allowing a lot more for the PHB than the valuation list).

So, whilst that was going on, no-one wanted the SW'd G1 I mentioned, then?

ARGHHHH!!!  Must...have...pretty...books...MUST...have...them...  :twisted:

Oh well, on the other hand things are looking VERY good over here in Happy Valley, clarkie, very good indeed.   :wink:   Saw LOTS of 4 WR sets today, and the deep ball is definitely there this year.  Oh yeah.   :D

A Mark Poole Dragon magazine interior art piece:

A tad pricey for interior art, though... does anyone know which issue it is from?
