i think the rather high shipping put ppl off bidding.....UK shipping was quoted as £7, but i know you can ship that UK for about £4.38....johnhuck mentioned it a few days ago too.

still, a nice snap for thesheild2000 imo...

I agree about the shipping, I think that Id pass on the $30+ shipping to the US charge. :wink:

still makes me smile tho, the ignorance of some sellers, where if they lower the shipping, surely the item would sell for a fair bit more, negating the gain the shipping gives them.

still its his loss and other ppl's gains imo

Hi all, certainly don't want to start a new thread, but could someone just help me.  I've just bought a couple of items lately and wanted to know if they were complete.  If you can tell me that would be great, but is there also a link to somewhere that lists contents of products.
 1.  U1 - mine is 30 pages, looks complete, but I don't know whether pages 31,32 could be a reference sheet or something.  As it stands, the 30 page booklet looks unusual.
 2.  FR Interactive Atlas - very big box with just a CD case and CD (with inlays) and a Dragon flyer.  This looks very empty!  Is there a manual?

Don't know about the Interactive Atlas, but the U1 is incomplete. The last page (31-32) is a perforated handout. The easy way to tell is the staple location as it is invariably halfway through the booklet. Thus, if the staples are between pages 14-15, it is a 28 page booklet. Between 15-16 means it was a 30 page booklet, etc.

A ways back, I posted a spreadsheet listing some of this info. (which modules had unnumbered handouts & maps, perforated sheets, etc.)  I have actually updated it a little bit since then and I sometimes use it for my own reference. By now, however, I think I know all the modules by heart ? (almost anyway). Maybe I can get around to posting it again sometime.

FR Interactive Atlas - Contains a shrink-wrapped CD jewel case and a cheaply done manual.  No Dragon flyer in the one I've opened.  

Ditto on the U1.  Missing the last page it appears.  I could probably help you out with that.

My copy had a 32 page (cheapo) user guide in the box, even with the manual the box seems seriously oversized.

Its nice to see the forum coming alive again over the last couple of days. :)   It seems the last few months have kind have been really enthusiasm lacking. :?

Heartily agreed.  I was just thinking about this last night.  Personally, I've been a bit burned out on the hunt lately.

Irritating auction of the month:

Dungeons and Dragons Players Manual | eBay

This seller has had this uaction up like 6 times and yet he refuses to either give up or put the price at $.01 which is really what is worth. Seriously who the hell is going to buy a beat up 1983 Players Manual only for $3.00 let alone $10.00. :?   By the time it is all said and done even if someone does fianlly buy it the Ebay fees that have now accumulated will have eaten up any possible profit he/she was going to make. :roll: Anyone want to email the seller and let them know that in case they havent figured it out yet, that they are wasting both thier time and money.

Is it just me or does something just not feel right about the AD&D stuff this seller has. Not on his part but the prices seem high for stuff that is taped....

I think that there should be some sort of law restricting the use of the word "Rare" on EBay.  I just a search of the word "RARE" on all fantasy RPGS, and I actually came up with 1583 hits: :roll:

rare in Fantasy | eBay

This is out of a total of 10220 listings.  That means that 15.5% percent of all RPG lisitngs are supposedly "Rare!" :roll:

hehehe yeah i have a similar beef to that.

however, unfortunately, not everyone on ebay has the knowledge of most of the peeps here or on other forums who are really "into" D&D that much..... so they would (i guess) tend to regard something as rare, because its 20+years old. that would make sense to me, if you knew nothing about it at all (yeah ok i DONT know much but hey :D)

the only example i can think of the OTHER way, is when i had a jade hare, and i thought it was the biggest pile of shite i have ever seen! so i dumped it in with a lot of other junky stuff, and then wondered why there were 47 ppl watching it after two days! til someone kindly told me.

the rules are different then arent they :D
