[quote="afoolandhis$"]Many thanks for the updates. Here's the revised list.

Hello, since he doesn't post here any more (more's the pity that), you might want to know that when I bougth Aneoth's collection in March last year, he kept a few items that I myself examined and authenticated (sounds too official, I examined and drooled over them).  KingofPain can back me up also.  Aneoth kept a 1st print Chainmail, an orange B3 (SW); and a Woodgrain boxed set (no idea the print, unfortunately).

I am seriously considering making the 8 hour trek this year. :) I also almost feel obligated to make the trip to Lake Geneva at some point or another. It is almost like a D&D gamers obligation to go to the mecca. :wink:


bri....if i can muster the funds to go, i am going for sure. even if i cant muster the funds, i will prb find a way of going :)

keep us posted on your status with regards to that, cos if we both going, i will fly over to you and travel down. i would prb get lost and end up in mexico or something :)

there aint no way thats coming out of the bag again i can assure you.

jess was looking through my stuff last weekend. i was watching her out of the side of my eye (you know how you do when you dont trust someone) and just as she was coming to that i said "er no you dont...dont even breathe on it"

i got an indignant "sooooorrryyyyy" (as all teenagers do) and she stomped off back into the other room with the monster manual. :D

Pencil this in please.

IF you come to GenCon Indy, then come to the...

ACE: The Acaeum Collectors' Ensemble

Gather in the auction room, get a tour of the stacks (the stuff coming up to be auctioned, a Security area) with me, an up-close look at all the Rares and Ultrarares, and a meet 'n' greet with snacks & beverages provided on the house. Latex gloves will be issued for perusal of rare items. Digital non-flash photography will be permitted. Time allotted 1-2 hours. Additional access will be permitted for perverse tastes (like if you want to examine 3M or SPI games) and side issues (e.g. Judges Guild & other RPG items).

Reminder: this year we'll be auctioning off the Original pen 'n' ink Greyhawk booket illustration of Mr. Pumpkinhead Bugbear (est 2' tall).

I have R1-4, RPGA3,4, coverless Jade Hare, Strategic Review 1-7, Dragon 1-6 and 2 1st print DMG.  I also have about 7 issues of the Game World newsletter?  Does anyone else have many issues of this?

Stephen, put me down for PoVQ 4th, Dragon 1-whatever, DG 2nd, Misty Isles (should be on the list). I just sold off a set of SR.
Speaking of Misty, I'm surprised that DG and PoVQ are even listed, being Wee Warriors and all. Is it because they were mistributed by TSR?
