Picked up a 10th Anniversary Collector's Set last week.  :-)



Mint condition.

Even had the 2 MSolo pens and the Dice crayon.

A little bit of shelfwear on the Basics rules where it rubbed against the case is the only negative.

Spawn of Sable, Pages of Doom, Light Fantastic, Hand of Justice, Farewell to the Flesh, Deepening Shadows, Legacy of Venom, Beast Within, Heart's Final Beat, Mission Brief, and Smoke and Mirrors; all Adventurer's Guild modules, and from DmDave, Mike Kuo, and Matrix Games.  I only need about 20 more and about 5 instruction books and I'll have a complete set.



Also snagged a ton of stuff today at a local hobby store of mine...  somebody is apparently buying up ALL of the guy's RPG stuff, but stupidly didn't place a hold on what is there now, so the owner slashed prices to 50% off.  Meaning I got a bunch of new 3rd edition hardbacks for only about $10-15 each, and even a few 2nd edition modules, shrinkwrapped, for about $2-5 each.  Shame 99% of what the guy has left now is White Wolf, weird random games, and beat up Shadowrun books.  Also a shame I just paid a ton of bills, and my bank account can't stand me dropping a few hundred to get just about every Vampire and Mage book out there (been meaning to start collecting them, but since the price of White Wolf stuff dropped through the floor, I've been thinking of buying somebody's collection and saving myself a bundle/headache).

OK, I know this is totally uncouth, but enquiring minds want to know.



Burnt, how much did you spend at the GenCon auctions?

About $1,600. I also bought alot of other items that I did not list(modules in shrink, a crap load of TSR miniatures still in cases, polyhedrons, etc, etc). Alot of great deals, every item that I bought went for less than the Acaeum prices(usually far less). :)

Dammit, why can't they bring GenCon to Washington DC or New York, someplace I could actually drive to without killing myself...   all the more reason I need to try to go next year.

Hey Burntwire, can you throw some scans of those tournement mods up?  I've been interested in finding some of those for years, but have had no luck (aside for the AG mods of course).

Just recieved a 1st print Hexagonal Mapping Booklet, never used for $2. The Acaeum has a pic of the 2nd so do I need to send a scan of the 1st?

Apologies, I know this is some serious thread necromancy, but I found it pretty cool what people were going after and getting way back when.  At the time, eBay didn't obscure bidder names so you knew who you were going against.  The old GenCon pickups are amazing.

Anyways, just a trip down memory lane and prices to die for...
