Though Maxwell does exhibit many female tendencies (tantrums), her name was different.

Actually, she ended up becoming a slut, then gained 200 pounds and turned to the Dark Side.

She used to play D&D with us when we first started. She was actually pretty good. Very smart, good at figuring things out.

You guys are not going to believe this one.



Ships ONLY to the UK!!  :? 8O  :evil:  :roll:  :(  :cry:



8O  YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 8O



Sorry I was going through all kinds of emotions when I read that notice on the listing. Read below and see the Link to better understand why....



Take a close look at some of the loose items in the red folder



"A folder full of home made adventures, maps and manuscripts"



and check out the lower right picture showing a yellowish colored item in particular!!



(loose photocopied pages in a ziplock bag)   he says.... :lol:  :lol:



Can it be the real thing?!?!  8O Is that what I think it is, or is it as stated, simply a photocopy? :?:

cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... Track=true



There are several other rare and tasty morsels as well.



Lot also includes a nice looking White Dwarf 2, a White Dwarf 6, a Coverless Jade Hare, and a Tegal Manor!! :cry:  :cry:  :cry:  :cry:  :evil:  :evil:  :evil:



This one is going to get ugly, if he decides to ship outside the UK.

That guy has 1 feedback rating ... after all the questions, I guarantee you he renegs on the auction and takes better stock of what he's got.  That PotVQ copy looks authentic to me - I mean, if you were going to just photocopy a module from your friend, why would you bother to copy it on the same color paper (for the cover at least)?  Unless, of course, this is an "inside job" by somebody who wants to generate a big paying scam.



Stealing from D&D nerds - now there's some bad karma for you, heh.

Ah... the board's spotted 'em... (surprise :roll:)



I've been emailing the seller to-and-fro and they insist they're photocopies. (A very dangerous one on the PotVQ, if so...).



Worse; because so many people have been pestering, they're thinking of stopping and splitting the auction up into smaller lots.

(One thing having questionable "reference/zero-value" material within a batch; another thing entirely if that's a whole auction...).



Anyone else in touch?

The WD#2 is a reprint, btw, <Aneoth> ;)

The guy also seems to be emphasizing that these are home-made and of no value.  Wonder what that could mean?

I just posted my shipping to the USA question to the seller and started watching this auction. Fairly interested in these, be they photocopies or not.

This is great from a spectator standpoint. This listing is changing every 10 minutes ... :)



The guy now claims he's received 28 questions in a 20-hour span (I'm guessing more than half are from Acaeum users). He's also changed his feedback from private to public.



I'll add another question: could this guy actually be selling this lot short? In other words, is some of that stuff really good and he just doesn't know it? I don't collect/chase "the rares" myself, so I'm pretty much in the dark on anything beyond T1-4 or GDQ1-7 ...

Are you getting something along the lines of

"The White Dwarf issues 2 and 6 are definately original. They are printed on glossy paper. The items listed in the home made section are all home made. They are photocopies with coloured card covers."?



I did ask them to go into further detail, but was more of the same.

(And they noted my point about #2 being a reprint. *g*).

You gonna rubber-stamp "forgery/for reference only" on the pages? ;)

Well, that's five from here, for a start... The view count was only on about 20-odds after the fifth question so it looks like everyone else has just piled in. Oh fun!



I like the "Some of them quite strange and some of them very useful" comment.



Xaxaxe wrote:I'll add another question: could this guy actually be selling this lot short? In other words, is some of that stuff really good and he just doesn't know it?


They recognise a WD #2 and a shrinkwrap G2, but it's a strange mixed bag indeed...



Well, and now they've posted "Please note that the photocopied materials are of no commercial value, and are just surplus gaming materials. I will see if I can add aditional closer photos to the auction.".

Which, at least, is better than suddenly deciding the PotVQ is genuine without any further reason, IMO!

Why the rush? Careful you don't end up with a photocopied "Jade Hare", too! :twisted:





Anyone got a clue what those stapled sheets are in the eighth picture?



Or the sheets under the photocopied "Manual of Aurania" (which looks the clearest-cut, perhaps?).

Well, now I feel a little better about it:



Q: Hello, What do you mean by photocopy stapled to form a book? Are these homemade items ones that you've photocopied from the original sources? Thank you, bombadil-tom          Answered on Mar-02-05

         A: The Tegel Manor book and the Installment I books are thin cream paper, slightly rough, and the covers are tan and orangy red thicker paper, almost card. Everyting is printed on both sides. The Dungeoneers Magazines are really thin white paper, like thick newspaper, with the same coloured paper/card covers also printed on both sides or each page. The Manual of Aurania is cream coloured thick typing paper with a yellow paper cover. Its printed on both sides of the pages. The Wizards Aid is crispy new smooth white paper with a tan card cover. Its printed both sides. The Palace of the Vampire Queen is loose sheets in a ziplock bag with a cardboard hanger at the top. There is a bright yellow paper cover with a drawing and title on it, and then about a dozen white sheets of paper behind it. These are also printed on both sides. The staples in the Dungeoneers Books and the Palace of the Vampire Queen look like they are starting to rust. The others are not so rusty. I hope this has helped.

Staples in the PotVQ?? (on the hanger? and where did a "hanger" come from... *looks at tag on front*).



Heh; well sounds like they just described two genuine copies of The Dungeoneer (albeit not valuable ones), anyhow.

Thanks for the copy response.
