Yeah, it arrived several days ago. The items (Monster and Treasure Assortments 1 and 2) were as described in the listing (heavily worn) aside from there being an old smoke smell as well. For $1.50, though, why not?

Due to my unpleasant previous experience with this seller, I refuse to leave positive feedback. However, everything went well this time, so I've decided to leave no feedback at all rather than be childish and make comments unrelated to the current transaction. Irrespective of whether s/he has reformed or is just building up feedback in order to take advantage of buyers later, I'm staying away from now on...

Thanks for the heads up. I have set my search engines to avoid all items including "!!" as two last digits of their title. I prefer to avoid this "thing" as if it was the dreaded blackplague instead of risking to loose time and/or money with them  :roll: It is sad this kind of sellers may exist.

brenscollectables is selling Diamond Dice.  I highly doubt that they came from back-in-the-day because
  • The dice have no wear

  • The dice numbers are not crayon-ed or inked

  • Melendy Trains (Diamond Dice) still sells these in bags of 100, and the colors in this lot are identical to the colors in a Melendy Trains bag

. . .

[FYI, the man behind Melendy Trains is great seller.  He went out of its way to find some other dice for me and tumbled some of his Diamond Dice to make them into the Frosted dice advertised in the Dragon magazine.]

Do you know if there's a site that has catalogued various dice over the years? I didn't realize that some dice were so collectible (except for maybe the thread some time back that I saw on the bagged Zocchi ones)

DiceCollector.com ( DiceCollector.com - Home of the Worlds Largest Dice Collection - THE place for Dice Info & Questions ) is the best reference.  It has numerous photos.  It even has a section for figuring out who made your mystery dice.

I personally won't be bidding on anything from Rural Retreat but am curious what the value of the Arduin Trilogy box set would be with the box included?

Just in case you've neglected to do so as I had, block brenscollectables from bidding on your auctions. Presumably based on my comments here, s/he has decided to BiN one of my items and then not pay or respond to my invoice or followup message. Not a big deal, but a slight nuisance. Not sure why I didn't have the ID blocked, just overlooked it..

In case s/he really wants to buy something from you just to leave bad feedback i think you have no way to forbid her/him to do it with a new account : if s/he wants to neg all of us, it will be very simple for him/her to attain this goal.
:arrow: i had to disable bids from all US members for a while to avoid his/her bids and -FBs. Hopefully for me, i have nothing very interesting for sale for US bidders hehehe ;)

I've found enough circumstantial evidence to conclude that our new user "Unicorn" here is, in fact, another James Corvin identity.  If "she" has contacted anyone here regarding a trade or purchase, you may want to think twice.  Or three times.

I thought it strange that someone would sign their name UNI, as opposed to a real person's name...   :cry:

With such a narrow scope, he'll run out of targets soon.

Just in case:

This seller in Chilhowie, VA is just down the road from Rural Retreat, which is just down the road from Wytheville VA:

** eBay auction listing blocked.  Please enable cookies in your browser for this site and for eBay! **

Seller's new i.d. is "bonnie197911"

As with brenscollectables and mystic-fairy, the double exclamation point and the use of UPPER CASE is present in the listings.

Best,

Paul

Anyone who has had an issue with this seller, please contact me. I'm having him investigated for fraud, so any relevant info would be helpful.
