A must for strategy & role playing game fans, whether you play science fiction, fantasy or war games! Wonderful fun for family and friends! This is a great item for the game fan in your life, or something completely new to share with family and friends, instead of the same old Monopoly by Milton Bradley, Clue by Parker Brothers, or Scrabble game, where the same person wins every time! Don't let this wonderful item slip away!

A Little History: Originally based in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin the company known as TSR (Tactical Studies Rules) started out with humble beginnings in 1973, before becoming the entertainment legend we know today. A few previous works, such as Chainmail (more of a miniatures based system), generated creative sparks amongst authors Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson. Those sparks soon flared into the creation of that little woodgrain box set Dungeons & Dragons and it's three digest sized books Men & Magic, Monsters & Treasures, and the Underworld & Wilderness Adventures, that will now forever hold a cherished place in the world of fantasy role playing. The Advanced Dungeons and Dragons universe consists of near endless worlds to explore including Greyhawk, Planescape, Birthright, Dark Sun, SpellJammer, Al-Qadim, Ravenloft, The Forgotten Realms, and Dragonlance. TSR has produced board Games (The Battle of Five Armies based on J.R.R. Tolkiens Lord of the Rings Prequel the Hobbit, Dungeon, The Awful Green Things from Outer Space, Divine Right), computer games, role-playing games from the basic set to the 1st Edition, 2nd Edition, 3rd Edition, and currently 3.5 (The Players Handbook, From the Ashes, Deities and Demigods w/ Cthulhu & Melnibone mythos, Boot Hill, Hellbound the Blood War, Metamorphosis Alpha, Gamma World, RPGA modules RPGA1 Rahasia, R4 Doc's Island, Queen of the Spiders…the list is near endless), fantastic detailed lead and plastic miniatures including the Rare Imperial Dragon which was also the cover for Dragon Magazine #1, and The Great Red Dragon, a continuing series of novels by the best writers of fantasy, comic books, a cartoon/anime series, it's own toy line by LJN, truly amazing art by some of the finest artists including Larry Elmore, Keith Parkinson, Jeff Easley, Brom, Erol Otis, Todd Lockwood, and Tony DiTerlizzi, not to mention it's own addicts support group the Role Playing Gamers Association, and the largest game convention in North America Gen Con! Even after being purchased by Wizards of the Coast (the publishers of Magic the Gathering), the Dungeons and Dragons world continues to grow!

Wow. I can't believe he left off "Warriors of Mars". (Maybe its in there and I missed it. I got kinda bored reading after awhile.)

Too funny. I'd love to see the expression on his face if he remembers your name.  Just don't leave feedback too early.  Oh hell, why not, kick his ass back to zero  :twisted:

I will definitely keep everyone updated on this one. I just wonder if he has the testicular fortitude to even send me an invoice. :roll: 8O :twisted:

Most definitely.  See Below for the earlier post I left:

Needless to say I paid by paypal and paypal did a charge back, but I only got $63.00 of my $88.00 back. The worst part of it is that I inadvertantly left a positive feedback for him in error. :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:
Now this MF'er is "selling" the same stuff again, of course after he changed his EBay ID and set up a new Paypal account under a different email address. I informed Ebay, but I wonder if they will do anything to get the rest of my money back. Just though I would put out an FYI in case anyone was planning on bidding on this auction. I am half tempted to even email cougar. 8O

If you look at the seller's ID, you will see that the seller just changed their eBay name, and eBay has their previous ID listed as the previous seller. The DH didn't even have the good sence to scrap his account and start a new one.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . minestrone soup.

Hey, I try,  but this one was all John's idea. I just acted on his excellent suggestion. :D  Needless to say, still no invoice yet. :roll:  :twisted:

Thanks. You'll probably end up getting negged. But I'm sure it will be worth it.

Have you sent details of both auctions to eBay and PayPal?

Yes on both counts. I emailed Ebay yesterday about 6 hours before the auction ended and got a form response initially about 4 hours later. As far as getting negged, I knew that was going to be a probable outcome, but it is definitely a outcome that I am willing to live with. If my feedback score was 100%, I may have decided against it, but that 100% was gone long ago, due in full to a not so intelligent seller who negged me on a transaction that I had already paid for immediately and had received the item in the mail.:evil: So with that, I decided to take my fate into my own hands. :wink:

Well, here is an update. This dumb ass, just emailed me an invoice toiday. 8O Here it is along with my response. :twisted:
Ummm well Chad, I don't know. The last time I paid $15.00 for shipping for this same auction with the same items this past January, they never showed up. Funny thing is as I recall you stole my money back then, and I was only able to recover $63.00 of the $88.00 that I paid that time. So I don't know, what do you think I should do.

Yeah, the only thing worse than a thief, is a really dumb thief. :roll: And don't ask where he got the UK form, considering the EBay invoice clearly states Pittsburgh, Pa. USA. :? He is supposedly from Chicago, maybe Draco can make a pick up delivery for me. :twisted:  :twisted:  :twisted:
