[edit]Scratch that, it's true. I think I'm going to be ill... :oops:

"THIS BOOK HAS JUST BEEN RELEASED A WEEK AGO AND BOY IS IT GREAT...."
So great that the seller can't wait to get rid of their copy? :?
Publication date is given as June 30th 2005 ( Dungeon Master's Guide ) or July 6th 2005 (Amazon).

If that had been a zero-rated seller with "Quantity Available" of 5,000, I'd be a bit wary as to which lorry they'd fallen off the back of... :P


(p.s. They've also got "THIS BOOK HAS JUST BEEN RELEASED ACOUPLE WEEKS AGO" against their copy of Monster Manual III;
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 5212152720 : yet that was actually released last September! Time warp, obviously... :D).

Well, I thought the only thing missing from the description was the word "RARE!!", but I suppose if it's not being published for another 5 to 12 days, it is currently extremely rare.   :lol:   Sounds like an advance ordering system.  If anyone wants to pick up a copy of "DMG III", let me know...don't miss out on the opportunity.*

Not only in the DMG II real, it is Wizards' biggest hit in years. All indications are that it will be the biggest-selling 3.5/d20 product ever (not counting the three core rulebooks). Sales are apparently strong everywhere — for instance, it is, currently, the 119th-biggest seller in the book category at Amazon.

Here's a short article:

Just wait till 20 years from now and we all need those 100 or so 3rd edition hardbacks to complete our collections.

(After all, given a few years they might seem nostalgic and kind of interesting. Talk will be: I can't stand 6th edition! Remember 3.0/3.5 when you really had to roleplay your 1st level Fighter? Now it's just high powered laser swords, Cyber-Wizards and genetically engineered Weapon Masters. Whatever happened to realistic fantasy roleplaying!!! )

Didnt see this one posted anywhere.  If it was, oh well.  OCE + supplements.  Only 12 hours to go and currently at $77.  And you can bid against Frank Mentzer on this one too.   :)

Well, it's not a T1st.  Easy check:  If you can see the blue-robed wizard's right foot, it's not.  The wizard logo covers that foot on the T1st cover.  Beyond that, anyone's guess.  Pretty nice lot though.

This one ia already over but worth noting the disapointing result.  A real nice condition Fighting Wheel as well as some good looking hardcovers with a possible Cthulhu Deities & Demigods.:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... %3AIT&rd=1

I was tempted to to take a stab at it, but I all but maxed myself last Friday night.
