I mean I don't want to be too critical, but for $1800.00....................




Slow on the draw here......no, I don't have a copy yet.  The thought of keeping a mint/new one from Michicon where I attended as a lad had me temporarily struck with a hypnosis spell...

I can imagine the delight of DMs. "You've just opened the door to the only toilet in G3. Everyone needs to make a system shock roll." :lol:

    One can get too logical.  Every now and then my players come across a huge pile of poo.....it all has to pile up somewhere, doesn't it?



   But, I have learned to limit the poo piles...because my players will burn too much of our gaming session time meticulously searching those piles (and getting mad if they cannot find anything except corn).



   I just want a module that can fall from space and land in my game world.  I don't want to have to find ways to explain two new kingdoms, a new religion, a whole new social scene and a sect of female paladin kick-boxers who secretly rule all of society from behind the throne.  (Or, the monks of Greyhawk's Scarlet Brotherhood, who plot in secret in their hidden kingdom that is located exactly in the center of the world's major waterways and is almost impossible to miss without running right into it.)   :evil:

And, on the topic of Greyhawk....



   Those of you who own a copy of the two-part color map....



   Try placing an 81/2 x 11 sheet of paper over the center of the map, with the city of Greyhawk right in the middle.



   In that area of terrain you will find a major city, river, major lake, mountains, desert, demi-human kingdoms, swamp, enchanted forest, ocean, hills (with burial mounds), the Wild Coast and a humanoid kingdom (Pomarj) complete with the legendary prison of a Lovecraftian god (Tharziduin).



    All of this is in miniature size compared to the same types of terrain on the rest of the map.  (Find another area of the map of the same size which has all possible terrain features....)



   It seems clear that Gary Gygax first drew his World of Greyhawk campaign on a standard size piece of hex paper.  Then, he added areas to the borders and vastly expanded his world either as the game expanded or specifically for publication.



   But I digress...where were we....ah...I am off to Ebay!      :wink:

Broke the winner's run of ~230 sales in a row since their last purchase, too... Heh, heh.





Third makes a change for you, Stephen?

Thanks...it was a pleasant surprise.  I was actually on a powerboat in the middle of nowhere when my auctions ended...nearly fell out when I checked my email!  

(A bit disappointed that nobody bid on the DMG, though!)

Ah, that's right, they have been cracking down hard on meth lately. Well that bites, I imagine prices will go down now.
