Took your time to take Deadlords advise (see page 1 of this thread!)


You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

Pretty awesome stuff!

Frank was the clever TSR employee who collected
and kept his stuff! And he also has that little extra
no other D&D collector has! A forklift truck. :lol:

impressive what ive seen in this tread alone.  wow some of you guys are insane.  

not much in mine, though not sure i'd call it a collection, just odds and ends from the great ole days, but sentementally worth a lot to me, if you get my drift.

BS on the reading thing, instead of that boring life plan, perhaps you could spend the next 30 years entertaining us poor folks by flying all over the world in your charter jet and DMing us in adventures.  :)
You could buy a home near each area where the most Acaeum members live and stay there for a few weeks, then fly off to the next area for a few weeks, then on to the next, etc..... 8)

My Excel file tells me there are just over 1400 items in my collection...counting magazines of various types.

So, when you say that 742 items is 55.3% of what you would like to have..........don't count on that.

I have just about that number and I still...must...collect...more.  8O

Not counting magazines ... maybe 200 items. Probably closer to 170 or something like that, but I don't do the spreadsheet thing. Magazines would bring that total way up, but the same could be said for many of the responders here, who probably don't even count them.

At least half of my items are sentimental, too, and would make no impact on the hard-core collector. But they are precious to me.

I've got maybe 50 or 60 items that would cause a reaction if I eBay-ed them. Not a lot for this place ...  :)

I have very few really rare items.  What I have is a nice collection of future collectibles...of the future.  :?

Some of my items would go for $50 or so on Ebay.  A few would be in the $100 range.

Did any of you watch the recent Dr. Who episode called, Silence in the Library?

A library spanning an entire planet.  I wondered where one would find the RPG section.  8O
