This just in the weekly update from NobleKnight games:

In case your wondering where a lot of this good stuff is coming from, we purchased the personal collection of Quincey Koziol, who had a rather amazing collection of RPG's and RPG magazines from the mid 70's until about 1999 or so.


For those who don't know, Quincey was one of the Big Five or whatever you want to call them that were some of the first RPG sellers on the internet way back when....he was the original owner of Titan Games and sold the present owners almost all of his stock in the mid 90's.  Anyway, Quincey was quite a collector as well as dealer, you might take a look at the stuf NobleKnight puts on their website this week, I haven't checked it yet but there might be some interesting tidbits available.....

That is pretty big — thanks for the heads-up, Mike.

Aaron has really built quite the empire over at NobleKnight. I wonder if treating his customers like they are important and not having an ankle-grabbing shipping policy* has anything to do with it?

+++++

* I've received shipping refunds from NobleKnight at least three times. Now consider Titan Games. Discuss.

Same..
He's been great buying and selling to, never any problems, always helpful (just note that he uses stock photos for some stuff so if you are looking for a certain printing you really should ask)

I'll echo the other comments here to say Aaron is great.  I remember when he first started out with an AOL page and then went to a store website, I really wondered how he would compete with Quincey's Titan Games, Mike's Dragon's Trove and Brett's Sages Guild... well time has marched on and Titan changed hands, the Sages Guild closed, and Dragon's Trove became a games distributor with the focus shifting from vintage games.  Aaron did a great job filling that niche to become the premier place to look for gaming material.  

That said, I'm sad to see Quincey leave the hobby entirely.

I echo the sentiments about Aaron.  Ok, his prices for TSR materials are more than a mite high, but some of his other stuff is fantastically priced.  I got burned on the stock photo issue once, but he handled it about as reasonably well as one could hope.  His shipping prices are fair and he packs well.  His communication is beyond excellent.

Last night I picked something up from him that was maybe a couple bucks more than I should have spent, but I was willing to do so based on my past dealings with him.  

Some of the other more notorious sellers should take note, and learn to make more money from repeat customers.

I am agree too, I bought only one time from him but I received the games perfectly packed and in fantastic condition. A great seller.

I buy regularly from him. Everything packed great and shipped fast. I was inadvertantly shipped something once I hadnt ordered and when I contacted him he took care of it real quick and gave me a discount on the item I was supposed to get.

I've been buying regularily from Aaron for a long while. I've never had reason to complain. His service and his product is excellent in my experience.

Incidently, there is a Starstone on his site at $75. May be worth a look.

I have nothing but good things to say about NobleKnight games.  Always pleasant to deal with and they stand behind the things they sell.

They are good, I used him quite a bit in the early days, maybe a little pricey now.

I find them to be cheaper than eBay in most cases. But then I'm buying the non-TSR stuff and Aaron seems to misjudge his prices on the items I like to pick up. I imagine he's quite on the ball for the regular stuff.

I found out why there's a spate of double posts appearing on the forum. Does anyone else get these white PHP Errors then they press the 'Post' button to post a reply?

testing ...

Hey, I think it worked! That's the first interaction I've been able to have with the site all day — there's some strange stuff going on. Could someone let Foul know? I would, but it's taken me more than 15 minutes just to get this posted.

Here's something I've seen about 10 times in the past 10 minutes:

"phpBB : Critical Error

Could not perform Database operation

DEBUG MODE

SQL Error : 1054 Unknown column 'ct_searchtime' in 'field list'

UPDATE phpbb_users SET ct_searchtime = 1149884336 WHERE user_id = 363

Line : 88
File : search.php"

Yeah. That error message comes up, and I automatically press 'back' and try to post again. And double posts are created 'cos even though it displays an error screen the posts are getting through.

I've also had to re-log in twice today. Must be a glitch in the matrix.

I emailed him several hours ago about the posting problem when it happened to me the first time.

I have an edit/delete feature....is that it?

Clicking on that icon allows me to edit for content...but not to delete the post.
