Ahh, you were the one I was most afraid finding this auction. :wink: You always seem to find the good stuff. :wink: I had my eye on it for the whole week, but couldn't get the seller to close early. :evil: The cats already out of the bag though, because TerminalFrost posted it in interesting items just before you did. Oh well, I am rooting for Aneoth now. :D BTW, it looks like it is in pretty sweet condition, its even still in it original plastic bag. :D

It's a curse. I find all this good stuff and I have already blown all my money on low to mid range stuff. I guess I am going for quantity over quality right now. I am not sure how it slipped by me all week but then again it has been a busy week here.

Well.... best of luck my friend.... 8)
I do not snipe, so it can certainly be had from me at the last second, as many items I bid on are.... :(

But to do so, you will have to come up with a large Bag of Holding filled with copper pieces....  Luckily for you, your a big critter and so you should be able to carry that much Copper around with you.

or you could pay the tab with Platinum D20's..... :wink:

Funniest thing about this auction is the fact that when I went to bed last night, It has a high bid of $71.00. :lol: Since it was posted by Frost and Marlinth, it has gone from $425.00, now its all the way up to $820.00. 8O

No kidding!!  I was hoping to sneak this one by but clearly everyone has some sophisticated sieve techniques.  I knew it was flying under the radar when the view counter was at 200+ and there were only a couple bids.  Anyway, glad to see another previously undocumented Ghost Tower surface!   :)

Nice Win Jeff, although it went for a lot more than I thought it would. I was figuring around $800.00 or so. I was wondering if anyone knows who Gygax is?   could it be? 8O

Yep, I too thought $800 might do it too, hence by highest bid amount....
Nice win Jeff..... :D   dangit...... :cry:

Gygax is not THE Gygax. He used to post on the forum quite a while ago.   Maybe he will resurface here and share more of his insight.

Congrats on the win Jeff  :evil:   j/k

Thanks everyone, hopefully it turns out to be as minty mint as it appears!   :wink:  Having the ziploc with it is a (small) bonus as well.

I thought someone said that the ebay Gygax was actually his son or brother, but perhaps I have that confused with someone else.

Just out of curiousity, how would the Valuation board tag this one?  The final auction total was $1338 for what is obstensibly a "lot", but does anyone really think the other items in this auction (Shadis mag, Q1, B1, etc) added anything to the proceedings?  IMO it should be $1338 paid for a Ghost Tower Tournament module, forget the rest. Right?

Yes, I already brought this up to the board - there is no doubt this auction is simply for the Ghost Tower . . . and some extra "packing" paper. :)

I agree, and would round it down to $1300.  The other items do have value and I could certainly sell them for real $, but clearly 98%+ of the value is in Ghost Tower.

Calling any module "packing paper" makes me cry. ;)

... and there I was getting no sleep when I saw it only an hour after it was listed. The guy definitely didn't know about it 'cause he um'd and ah'd about my BIN of $175, 8O

There would have been a dead forum member if he'd said yes...

Sophisticated search engine of :"ghost tower of inverness"; for anyone interested I'll sell you the spelling... :roll: ..or you can PM me for a BIN  :lol:
