I agree that it is just about the best hard back ever; with it you could easily never have to buy another rule book. As it happens I've had three and sold them on - typical of me though, now I want one I can't pick one up for the right money (Oddly - all 3 of those I had were charity shop finds and I've never paid more than £3)

I cannot believe that Coug's went for over 3 times as much - can anyone shed some light?

A new guy - feedback (4) - who presumably had to have that one right now.  :lol:   I was a bit like that at the start.  Or in fact still am  :cry:

You have at least one of the bidders with a zero feedback bidding on multiple auctions from the same person.



Looks like the possibility of a very strange shill in progress (not sure about those Paris Hilton pants) :-)

Has anyone seen this guys ebay store in Australia. The prices are so high it is offensive. For example he has a RuneQuest Trollpak for $200. This usually sells for $10-15. Since he listed all this stuff in July he has made three sales.

I was going to post that this week but you beat me to it.  Three sales since July and I believe not one of them was for RPGS?  Even if he sells something at inflated prices I don't think he's going to makeup his ebay fees at this rate...

Am I missing something here?...




** expired eBay auction **




Especially given this auction ending 1 day later...




** expired eBay auction **




By this logic, this 2nd auction should settle at around $1000

Well it is for a case (i.e. 12) of them so I am figuring that would proabably be about right. :?
