I know, I know.  I was thinking blasphemy when I first read it as well.  But when I first started collecting, I was all about Greyhawk.  Nothing else interested me at all.  It took me some time but there are some really great Known World modules and supplements.  Heck, I just wish that TSR had gone into greater depth with Greyhawk like they did with Mystara.  I also dig Forgotten Realms and Planescape.  And while I have a few Dark Sun items and the Birthright box set, I wont touch Spelljammer with the business end of a tol-kendar.  :D

Or is white back in fashion? ;)



*could do a nice wall collage of 1st print supps., too, whilst I've still got spares*




well you could split the room into sections which would nicely correlate into the relevant prints :D



but then in the back garden, we could have "guido's gypsy wagon"



and then there is "stormbers auction hall", ready made with stage etc for all them rare auctions....pictures around the wall of all the ppl who have sold thru his auctions



then there is the Eastern treasure chest room.....which is empty bar for the thick layer of dust on the floor....



and the maxwell room, which is basically the toilet



then there is the creep room, where you pay admission and then ask for a refund cos the room wasnt what you thought

Hi, I'm Scott, long time reader, first time poster.



Check this one out:

eBay



Even though it's a 25th anniv. edition, for $.99, I'd have bid. Until I took a look at the shipping. An $8 handling fee?!?!? How do they handle it? Cryogenically? And that's on top of the shipping. Shipping to me was $11.85! Is a bike messenger bringing it? That's almost $19 shipping! No wonder no one's bid.

Actually I think the $11.85 is inclusive. $3.85 for the postage and $8.00 extortion. Not sure but I think that is what it is as you can add your mugging charge to be added to the postage charge. Make it a little better....sort of like only having a root canal on one tooth instead of two.

Poker and D&D, kind of an odd combination.

I guess it goes along with your rather odd posts. I get the feeling all is not as it should be...........

In the process of checking somethings out tonight, I came upon this handy little website that helps weed out an EBay users Neutral/Negative feedbacks. The site is listed here:



Toolhaus.org





All that you need to do is to type in the user Id in question and it filters out all the positives and just leaves the negs and/or neutrals. Useful little tool there. :)

That site is too cool.  I just checked my neg given and received, look like I gave out 15 negs and only received 3 in reply, that is a good average. :lol:
