You have to wonder why the seller chose to photograph these books with a backdrop of Christmas wrapping paper though...?




maybe he will personally wrap them in it for you as a special gift :D

White box #4,255 for the year 2006. I believe they self-replicate every 2 months.

I had tried to figure that one out myself. It lists AD&D in the Trademark remarks at the bottom and it appears to have 1981 as a date from what my poor eyes could make out. I need one of those gizmos from CSI or the like that can enhance photos so I cna read that kind of stuff

Now that it is closed I will voice my opinion. I did not want to mention this in the open forum in case I am wrong and too much money was spent. It seems to mention all the books (upto and including the Fiend Folio) on the portion that is visible. I am thinking it could be the second printing of "Your Personal Invitation to Adventure". It has 1981 as the TM date though but that might be accurate for the second printing which included the FF.

I don't see a trademark date in the photo and can't make out the copyright date; I can only see its 198(something).  With that being said it does match my copy of "Your Personal Invitation to Adventure" (which includes FF and has a copyright date of 1980).

I could be wrong. I was just going on what could be seen and with the descrition of the books on what appears to be a folded pamphlet of only a couple of pages it sort of seemed to fit the bill. Maybe we cna get a final answer from who ever bought it.

I love the title of this one, The Great Bugbear Hunt!



Apparently, bugbears are the last minority group to hire a lawyer.   8O



Imagine the callous disregard for bugbear sensitivities!  And I thought those days were behind us!   :wink:

Actual campaign event in Lake Geneva. The party was out on horses, found some critter tracks, stopped and went into caves to find treasure -- and didn't leave guards. (?) Passing bugbears looted some of the horses before the mounts ran away, and among the items taken was the lead mage's spell book. SO a fast and desperate chase ensued, and everything clicked; I was making up stuff on the fly and the players were having a blast. It deserved to be immortalized, so I wrote it up. :)
