Oh the pain......... 8O





Actually, all the modules in boxes are bagged and boarded. :wink:  I was actually in the process of bagging and boarding some of my newer acquisitions last night which is what prompted me to take some pics. :)

I'm almost done packing mine away. 24 Sterilite buckets so far. I really wish I collected matchbooks.


If you hit a Rowsdower, you get to keep it.

*glumly joins the Bookshelf Collection crowd*



Heh, everything I've got fits pretty handily on one bookshelf. It's a big one at least, 5 shelves. Not that that's making me feel any better at this point  :lol:

Nice hoard, clarkie.  I especially like the football on the nightstand.   :wink:



Is that the 1st print woodie you won recently?  For some reason, I had the impression it was in much worse condition.  Looks pretty nice.

That's the good side. :)



Thanks for the pics, Brian. Good to see another more typical (i.e. non-IO) collection as well.

(Looks like you've got a Falx as a wandering monster... Kept rolling "6"s? ;)).

Thanks All. David is right though this is the good side. :) Stephen, as far as the football, PSU all the way bro. :wink: I like to wake up to it in the morning. :lol:

Not just a wandering monster there, he has friends. :wink: I could take out all my rares and group them together for one photo if you like, but I will have too wait for my newly acquired Strategic Preview to arrive. :P

Dear Invincible overlord,



Congratulations on your incredible organization!  What a collection! I cannot call myself a "collector" unless you count all the unpainted mini's... I have (1000's) to go with my 500+ painted ones...this year I am planning to take over my parents basement (I live with them and my Wife in a 4-story brownstone in midtown NYC) and make it into my first Official Gaming Room. I am in desperate need of more space not only for gaming but for creating and painting pieces for Dwarven Forge.



Your "Set up" is an inspiration to me. I especially like the fact that you have various lighting and sound effects at your finger tips...something I plan to incorporate into my new Game Room as well 8)



I also very much admired your hand drawn map of the Caverns. I am also very fond of drawing maps and yours was truly great 8O



Do you collect miniatures as well?



Bravo, once again! What an incredible work you have done, hats off!



Stefan Pokorny

CEO-Dwarven Forge.

Thank you Dathon,

I appreciate your business. :)  We plan to do a Limited Edition follow up on the Den of Evil, consisting of "Evil Extra's"  which would include furniture, altar, evil dressings so to speak...it is in the design/planning stage right now.

I myself have been busy sculpting an Underground Cavernous River system...it has been a while since I did any actual sculpting myself and I'm having fun!

If that does well, I also plan to do a Lake Set...rumors have it that deep in the darks of these caverns there have survived some of the pesky old Lizard men...

Best Regards,

Stefan.

Oh, it's not unreasonable for what you're getting. I just can't afford to get DF stuff, and books, and miniatures ;)

I walked into Borders on the weekend and saw a 3.5 Ed book (can't remember which one) with a price tag of $75  8O  



Now that is an unreasonable price :!:   In fact I bet my bottom dollar if the prices of books were like that when I started roleplaying then I never would have started.

EPT and RQ III were certainly higher than that (inflation-indexed)....



(OK, but you got a whole system/world for that price back then! :))

But as you well know wages don't increase inline with inflation.  :roll:
