Non-cynical guess: Those two newbies are just excited and getting wrapped up in a bidding war.

Cynical guess: One of them is a shill.

OTOH, there are 20 items in that lot. That puts it at $15 per item (for now, anyway), which is not the silliest thing I've seen even today.

As always, those who believe "prices are rising" will use this as supporting evidence of that assertion.



OTOH, I will cling to the belief that some people are inherently stupid.  :P

That looks like a pretty good condition early Greyhawk folio.

(By the way...does anyone else here prefer to spell it grEy a opposed to grAy?)

I have used both, but I think I now just use grEy (though in dealing with Greyhawk, I've never actually spelled it with the 'A')

I think it's the Black & Decker vibrator that comes with it they're bidding on.

I actually went back to see if there was a vibrator in the picture..... :oops:



I would like to see the stuff in the green portfolio just to see if there was anything interesting they wrote up..

It is always fun to see someone else's homebrew stuff. I have a failry large stash of stuff garnered from various purchases over the last year or so. I used to just throw it all out. But I am gonna auction it off with my next ebay dump (next couple weeks or so).

Of course, I am not gonna drop $400 to see what this dude has... 8O

I actually just checked carefully to make sure that wasn't mine (which went missing circa 1983). But it's not ... I never drew pictures like that, and I certainly tried to make sure my dungeon layouts didn't look like a vulva.

The thing is, Xaxaxe, no one at my game table had that much anatomical knowledge back in the day.  I could have named my dungeon, "Queen Labia's Tube of the Fallopians" and they wouldn't have snickered.  :lol:

Honestly, the green Trapper got my heart-rate going. The one I lost had all my characters, a bunch of NPCs, some dungeon notes, etc.

I mean, logically, I know it's long gone ... it wouldn't have survived being lost for 23 years. Emotionally, I would love to find it somewhere.
