I thought I would give starting this thread a shot. . . if people like it, then great!  If not, it will just "fade" away and be forgotten. . .

Anyway, I have noticed from the two "free" giveaways I have done and from listening to various threads over the years and talking with customers that there are a lot of "missing pieces" out there.  Many of you have items that are incomplete. . . .missing maps or inserts or counters or boxes or whatever.  

And, at the same time, you have several duplicates of things you don't need. . . an extra poster map (or ten!), extra booklets to boxed sets, various module covers, parts, inserts or pieces and all kinds of goodies that you don't need and don't know what to do with. . . and all those Dragon Mags that keep piling up. . . plus those really "low-grade" items that you just can't throw away. . .

So, if anyone wants to give it a try. . . post some things you need. . .this isn't like the classifieds , rather it is for those little things that aren't worthy of a full add.  Besides, you can't reply to classifieds . . . so whether you have stuff to give or stuff you want then make a quick post.  Use PM's, email or whatever to work out shipping charges  or arrange trades (3 Dragon Mags you need for three Dragon Mags I need), etc.

Or maybe this won't work. . . anyway. . . I guess we'll see. . .

For my own part, I've got lots of odds ‘n ends -- especially all these extra Dragon Mags which just seem to take up space. (Mostly between 100-160).

Hi For what it's worth I think this is a great idea.

I have been working on a website, for the UK for a couple of months, mainly to get rid of my excess, which at the moment is getting excessive!!!!!!!!! And really didn't want the hassle of EBay.

This was one of the features I was thinking of adding. Allowing people to post part box sets, small items they wanted and people to advertise what they had.

I was also considering putting a classified section for people to post, but everyone seems to want to use EBay so perhaps that was going to be a waste of my time, as they do not seem to be used.

I was even thinking of adding an auction feature, as I can get the software, and I don't like the EBay/Paypal charges (just mean!!). I wonder if that would be worth the effort?

I have a friend who owns a website hosting company so all I have to do is buy the name and hosting is free.

When I get time, probably a couple of weeks, away on business and missing out on lots I am watching on EBay, my wife will be glad of the money I will be saving!!!!!, I'll post a list of what I have.

DL dragon knight - no cover

Ravenloft 2E Masque of Red Death 1103 - full colour poster sized map of gothic earth

2E Dragon Mountain 1089 - i need 12 plastic bases (pref uncut) - set comes with 24 and i only have 12

so there ya go - heres a start.

anyone who can trade, or wants something but doesnt have what i want or whatever, just PM / E-mail me and we can take it from there, save cluttering up this cool thread!

Thanks Paul for this great thread.

I am currently looking for map 0702 from the Planes of Chaos set.

I have a duplicate of Castle Darkhold poster (1056XXX704) from the AD&D Castles boxed set. If anyone needs it, PM me.

Great idea Paul!

Any possibility that Foul can make this a sticky?

I can help with those Dragon Mountain plastic stands.

I'll have to really go through my stuff to see what I am needing... which is a lot, actually.

I have one of the two part maps for the forgotten realms second ed campaign setting. It's the one of the continent, i'd have to fish it out to find the numbers.

Other than that, I just have a lot of random duplicate books etc.

Dunno what if anything I need, I have vuage memories of Rob saying he needed some spelljammer map though, i'll have to ask him.

So I went through two of my boxes this morning and I have the following for trade. Any details on printings, etc. I will have to check tonight if anybody is interested:

- Moldvay Box (missing dice/crayon) has Gateway to Adventure, books NM, box GD with one split corner (Just happened this morning when I pulled it out of the crate!! damnit!).

- an "extra" Moldvay basic rulebook with B2 in GD condition. will trade separately.

- Expert Book and X1 (cook) in GD cond.

- Hex mapping BOOKLET - writting on one or two pages. cover GD.

- Dungeon Masters Design Kit (need to check if it's complete)

- Fiend Folio in good condition, has minor bent corners.

- Dragonlance Adventures hardcover, Good cond.

- Oriental Adventures, Fair-Good Cond.

- Role aids Elves

- Role Aids Dwarves

- Role Aids Wizards

I also have these dice... I'm trying to make a complete set or two. I prefer to keep the pale blue (on the left) over the light aqua and browns... So if you can help me make a complete set hopefully I can help you. As you can see I have no d6s or d10s... but an excess of d20s and d12s. these are from the Moldvay box:
