Yes I filled some gaps.  In fact, the only duplicate item I already had was a True 1st DMG and the Vault of the Drow module.  Everything else is new to my collection.



I just started a new job.  So my collecting bug has been reenergized with new money, if you know what I mean.

Congrats on you win.  But one question, what is the map that is laying in front of the PHB & DMG?  I've never seen it before.

To be honest with you.  I too, have never seen that map.  Look forward to actually getting the lot to check it out.

Sorry dont get too excited. It is something out of Dragon Magazine from Tom Wham:

Tom Wham Search for the Emperor's Treasure

Geez, Sorry. Wouldnt you rather find out now, than wait even longer letting the excitement build up only to receive it and be like, "Oh its only a Dragon Magazine insert :( ". :)

BTW, did you get the box I sent over yet??

I'd be too worried I might open it years from now and find a stack of papers all saying "HAHA" on them.

Alright, if the winner is a member here, PLEASE let me know if this is an Aussie print.  I've been trying to figure it out all week, and missed my chance to place a late bid.

Looks like it is just a bad photo or really really faded S1 to me.

Are you sure it isn't a bad colour photocopy? This does not look too good to me, plus something about the seller's replies are a bit off...don't ask me why, my spidey sense is tingling....

Yeah, there's something strange about it.  It looks more like a color copy/scan than a bad photo, but you never know.

At first, I was really confused looking at due to the odd looking cover and the fact that at least at this point there were no known colored Aussie print modules. Now that I look at it further I am almost positive that is a color photocopy of the at least the cover. look at the white mark on the bottom right hand corner of the cover. Also if you look at the bottom of it, the cover is considerably shorter than the interior booklet, which could occur due the cover being of a earlier printing, but that in conjunction with the white smudge has be convinced that some just spent $20.00 on a S1 with at least a photcopied cover. :oops:

Yes, I agree.  However, if it's a color photcopy, why didn't the shades of blue and red come through, that's what's nagging me...

From the Auction:
Q: Hello, Are there marks or writing inside this copy, including on the cover or on the maps? Thanks.
A: NO THE COPY IS MINT

Mint?  8O

I believe MINT refers to the flavor of the toothpaste that's smeared across the bottom of the cover.  :lol:

$40 for copies of the FR Interactive Atlas. He's still got some left, but no manual/box.

*Edit* Ok, got an email from him, which was a bit odd:
"I see you purchased 2 copies. I just want to make sure that you are aware that you won't be able resell these technically. Do you understand what I am saying?

Thanks, Dave"

*Edit2* Took out the link. I heard from another person via email that the guy gave weird answers. That makes 3 including Clarkie's, so bleh. Reported him to eBay.
