Another great deal made today with Badmike.  If some of you people arent buying from him...well darn it you should.  :D  

I picked up:
2nd Edition Call of Cthulhu box set; couldnt afford the 1st edition.  :(
Spawn of Azathoth
Fungi from Yuggoth
Shadows of Yog-Sothoth
NM copy of Isengard and Northern Gondor to replace my copy that looks like a grizzly bear used it to wipe its butt with.

I really wasnt sure if I wanted to start collecting CoC but after reading a few sourcebooks it is just too damn cool not to.  Thanks again Mike!

About 7 years ago I sold off my Cthulhu collection. It was gorgeous, virtually a complete set, all the really weird obscure stuff and it was off the shelf mint condition.  When I think about it it hurts.  I really needed the cash at the time and I did get great money for the stuff but a collection like that would be very difficult to assemlbe nowdays.

I still think about my MINT boxsets and shake my head! :cry:  :cry:

Great catch King!

It's the same philosophy the crack dealers use....

Let them have the first few free or cheaply....then when they are hooked...raise the price dramatically...

Soon King you will be begging me for my Delta Green rares, Pagan Publishing OOP items and Games Workshop one shots....

All part of the plan, my man!!!

 Seriously, thanks guys.  I try to treat buyers like I want to be treated.  Except for DungeonDweller who got his stuff shipped late last month, sorry about that...otherwise I hope I'm doing a good job.

Gee, I just realized I could drive over and pick stuff up.  I'm in DFW too.


Regards,

Don't you live somewhere around Rockwall, Steve? Or is this someone else I'm thinking of?
  KingofPain and I have been mulling over a get-together of DFW based Acaeum members.  I'm going to check the local La Quinta to see how much their meeting room is for an afternoon, I'm about a mile away from the freeway and this would be a nice central meeting location.  We could set up a swap/sales meet there, I can lug over my boxes of goodies if anyone would be interested in buying or just digging through, whoever else is interested could bring their stuff over.   Generation X, the finest and best stocked game store in the DFW area, is just a block away, along with a Starbucks, Dennys, and of course a pool hall/sports bar/ drinking establishment. More and more of us seem to be from the area, it would be nice to have a meet.  I know Gus Landt has been to Gen X in the last month or so.  I'll post on this in its own thread so we can see if enough of us would show to be worthwhile.  Not a gencon, but could be fun.

You think we could dig up enough people to necessitate a meeting room Mike?  What about Fencert?  Doesnt he live nearby?  If I am not mistaken...Geoff (Inferno) Dale also lives in the DFW area.

I'll order a couple of bags of Frank's piecrust cookies, we'll auction off a couple of those Fiend Folio's you have lying around, order a few pizzas, and ask a few of those cute women down at the QT to dress up in chainmail and we'll have our own little get-together.  We'll call it DARPACon (Dallas Area Role-Playing Advocates) or NOTGAYCon (North Texas Gamers and Yachtsmen).  Ok, maybe that second one is out since probably none of us actually owns a yacht.  But you get the picture.... :wink:   And to celebrate Mike, you could sell your backstock at 25% off.  Then maybe I can afford that Court of Ardor.  :P

Seriously, it would be a lot of fun to get 6 or 7 people together in September/October for a day of reminiscing, gaming, eating, drinking, and yachting.   :mrgreen:
