Holy krap! No one would really pay that, would they? I know nothing about online character peddling, but has anyone ever paid anything close to that for a similar type of auction to anyone's knowledge?




All the time. That's $1k with RNM though, so not sure what this guy's expecting. The most I've personally payed, iirc, was $1200 for an account in Ultima Online. That was for resale though, and splitting up the stuff it had on it, I think I ended up making about $1500 profit. Not really possible to make that kind of money in MMOs anymore though, the market is too saturated and sweatshop-cafes in Asia have pretty much cornered the market by virtue of sheer volume.



I've never even heard of the game that the character is from, so it seems unlikely to me that he'll have any bites (that kind of cash typically requires a pretty large selling base to support, but I certainly could be wrong). Stranger things have happened.



And is it just me, or do all the outright scammers choose Israel as their location?

Would you send $1000 to a zero rated seller in Israel? If so, I have a friend who has an ultra-rare B2 pre-pub with Gary's notes on it? He's never sold anything before on eBay and he lives in Borneo. Why not PayPal him the funds direct?


This week I've been mostly eating . . . radishes.

Imo, it's no more goofy than paying $1k+ for a book that will sit in a collection ;)

Being one who doesn't know anything about items sitting in a collection  :roll:



I think the *goofiness* goes beyond the money.  What is the point in playing a game where all the challenges have been done for you?



I personally like the challenges that go with building a character.

I think I will have to take a pass.  :wink:  Seriously, I love video games and online games are cool as sh*t, but anyone who spends $1k on an online character is a freakin idiot.

Obviously to each his own but I can guarantee in 25 years when I try to sell my $1000 book someone will be much more likely to buy it for $1000 than a character from a 25 year old online game, if even still exists.

I do not have the monetary power to go after this stash, but someone else might:



Dungeons and Dragons Epic Original Set | eBay



    Is it possible that one or two of the items in this lot might be valuable or rare?     :?

Doubt that's worth $450 (unless those miniatures are -really- valuable), but those are some nice-condition books for sure.

The Heritage Dungeon Dwellers box sets can go for $50 each so it's actually a pretty decent haul.  I wish he had broken up those minis boxes into individual lots because I still need one of them...  :(

Quick, somebody update the Acaeum Estimated Value, 'cause it just got skewed.
