Well, we've seen people selling prints of the RPGNow PDFs on eBay before. Maybe this is a set? I asked for some photos, but I bet he won't e-mail me any. Good lick if any of you guys are going to bid. Use a credit card. Don't even think about going to PayPal first, 'cos they won't do a thing for you in this instance. It'll be fun to watch.


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

I nearly hit the BIN without even looking at it :oops: (for $0.01, you can hardly go wrong...)




Yeah, I saw that too. :( I feel bad and want to help, but then part of me is scared that it may be a scam. It is sad that there are so many scammers out there that it ruins it for those really needing the help. If I was 100% sure that it wasn't a scam, I would probably mail them my 3 3rd edition hardcover core rule books for free, but since I am not sure, I dont know what to do. :?




I wrote to the seller, she may post here trying to score the 3.0/3.5 books that were stolen.  She seems legit.

I'm out of this one, but it is VERY rare. I have never seen one before, and I don't know anyone who has one. And it's a Wee Warriors item! Woohoo!!

As far as the R auction, the seller is way too shady going by what you guys have said so far. He knows all the minutae of the printings, page counts, etc. but puts a $20 reserve? Bullshit. Too shifty.

I'd love to get my hands on these, and would even run up the credit card for this lot, but I'm not going anywhere near it on that photo -- which looks to be a cut/paste job. Maybe I'm just paranoid, but buyer beware. Hopefully I'm wrong.




well funnily enough, i have just been discussing this auction with my biz mate and he took one look at it and thought it looked "fishy".



for a start off, he has a low FB rating and 2. its not often you come across someone who actually has all eight items, and 3. there definately seems something odd about that shrinking, but i cannot put my finger on it.



i lobbed in a bid before i had a little time to check it out more, but now i am a little dubious about it, so think i will leave it alone. it looks too good to be true tbh.

Well forget that AH who is probably selling fakes, here are some defitiely legit ones:



eBay listings



These should be fun to watch. :)



Dammit these people are killing me. I wonder what empowered guy is going to in an attempt to get these ones. 8O If he spent $192 on a shrinked Q1, what the hell do think he is going to do with these ones $500 each? 1000 each? :roll:

If Geo had put them all together, I'd have bet on his auction getting a damned sight more than the fishy one, even without R4.

Well maybe I should do this for a living or something.  Look who is now on the scene. :roll:

Bbarsh has some cool stuff listed with Buy-It-Nows, I think some of this will probably move quickly.

Empoweredguy must have gone to C.R.A.P.S.  The Creep1962 Retarded Appraisal Practitioners School.  :D



This is some of the nuttiest shit I have ever seen.  Makes me glad I picked up all my common items years ago.  Course it makes it that much harder to pick up the really rare stuff now.  :?

Larger mixed bag lot in somewhat rough shape. A "well used" GDQ is included in the mix as well as an I3-5....

What's with the colored-in Chainmail in that pic, anyway?  Orange copies (1st Ed., 2nd Ed., 3rd Ed. 1st Print) of Chainmail don't have spiral bindings like that...  :roll:

Noticed that as well.  Hide that binding under another book and someone might trip over themselves trying to buy it.  He needs to learn how to use his camera.  :D   And I have said it before, his item descriptions are just plain crap.  :P
