Its a bit odd how several regular posters stopped posting right around Gencon.  Most of the one's I'm thinking of are still around, they're just not posting.

Could it be that they've been scared off by the title you receive for having too many posts?

well they won that one easily enough.

lets hope the 2nd test is a little more of a proper match. would be a shame to see it be too one-sided.

thats what i enjoyed about the last ashes, because it was so close....every game could have gone either way.

ah well.

few good things to come out of the game for england, but generally, total shambles.

Actually it could still have been washed away as the forecast for Brisbane was for showers.

I really hate the fact that it finished on Monday - had to work, where'as my wife was home for all 5 days and got to watch nearly all of it (when the kids let her that is :wink: )

I definitely prefer it when it's close (especially if we win) :lol:

I managed to get tickets for the game when it's on in Perth in a few weeks so look for me, I'll be the one waving   8)

PurpleDragon has resurfaced over on the Planescape Subweb. He's making a grand entrance too. He's planing on puting his copy of the legendary PS Sketchbook on eBay!


This week I've been mostly eating . . . chicken and wild rice soup.

Ya, I didn't mean to nor want to disappear. Unfortunately, life likes to throw the occasional curveball. About a year and a half ago I jumped back on here with the intention of keeping in contact, but then life threw a slider...may have been a fork ball...but definitly not a split-finger pitch. Where was I...

I have been pursuing a masters degree in history with the intention of teaching high school history. We also moved, just within the city, but you all know how any move can muck up a situation. Needless to say, I was moving the boxes of D&D stuff and was thinking "You know, you really do not have the chance to enjoy this stuff that much anymore and it seems a shame when someone else might. So why not keep a few of your nostalgic items (like some of the early first edition modules and one set of rulebooks) and just sell the rest. So several months later and the occasional reminder from my most loving wife, I decided to start posting some items. I figured I would start with a bit of a bang with the Misty Isles and then go from there. I also figured the sketchbook mention would be bring a little jolt.*

*Once again, I am still a bit more than timid about it...but I think posting it with a $500 reserve may be the best way to go. I mean seriously, just how much is something like that worth?** There have been what...3 sales of it on Ebay in about 5 years, and all with low-ball BINs. Go figure.

**and I am not trying to push up the price with that statement, just sincerely curious

Oh, and don't worry about Cougarrinard getting involved in any of my auctions. I have had him on block for years.

Has anyone noticed the absence of Killjoy?

He visted yesterday (12/24) but he has not posted since December 8th.

Why?  Is there some new and hideous title he might earn if he crosses the next post limit?

LOL…

I'm still alive… I was just poking around and noticed this thread. My interest in "collecting" hasn't waned, its just simmering on the backburner for awhile. To tell you the truth I picked up quite a few goodies at last summers GenCon; including the DMG manuscript, prototype dice for the original Basic Box Set (colors never before seen), and original art form RPGA1  by Darlene… Oh, and I almost forgot original art for the first Grayhawk supplement. --- Mr. Pumpkin-head…  :lol:

The two bargains of the trip were a True-First Grayhawk Supplement for $18 and Jeff Easley sold me the original sketch for the 3rd edition PHB cover for a song… What a guy if you get a chance to chat with him.

Anyway, I'm still lurking, and I'm in the process of shuffling around through our collection deciding important gaps to fill.

See you cats around, and I anything I'll be working the Dwarven Forge booth again this summer. And I am looking forward to an "official" Acaeum gathering if someone puts it together. A few of us had an impromptu lunch and chat last year that was a blast.

Mike  :D

Wow! Any chance of you posting a pic of the dice and the Greyhawk art?

I couldn't locate the dice, but I'll find them soon. We're in the process of reorganizing things after some reconstruction.

Here's the Grayhawk Art. It's the original Bugbear art with that beautiful "pumpkin-head".  :lol:

Image

This is the Darlene art that was used in RPGA 1

Image

This is the sketch Jeff Easley basically gave me that was the inspiration for the 3rd Edition PHB. (Dodges… old dice, 2nd plus printings of the 1st edition PHB, and lightest Acaeum member)  :lol:

Image

This is the coversheet of the 1st Edition DMG manuscript that was sent to the printers.

I'm currently going through the manuscript and comparing it to the actual book. So far other then grammar edits it's almost word for word. Photo's and notes to follow.
