I'll go along with the last two, but the others were higher than I expected.  They all look really great, though.

Possibly, assuming that it is as nice condition as it seems, how much would you want for it?  :)

It's just another character sale, really. That one is for Stormreach, the online, massively multiplayer version of D&D. It debuted sometime last year to less-than-stellar reviews and has had a hard time making much of a dent against World of Warcraft.

Here is a "massive" lot of items, but of note are a fair to good Blackmoor & Eldritch Wizardry, two (yes, count 'em 2) 8O JG-Dark Towers, an Inferno, some Boot Hill, and Traveller, plus loads of Dragon mags, modules, & rule books.

Does anyone want to fess up being Bidder 1 ?  :o

Well...the feedback score is too low for it to be cougarrindard.

I came across an auction with this in the description:

Just a couple of highlights in this auction- three books that are original 1st edition publications by Gary Gygax, the very original Dungeons and Dragons books (a mint set of three) and the Ban module "The Throne of Bloodstone" this book was pulled from publication because of the parallel's between the adventure itself and that of our own Satan and Hell.
Was there any truth to this?

No. It was not banned., and we got special permission from Satan before doing the cover art.

Kosh, we actually discussed that auction in the "Laughable Item Descriptions" thread not to long ago:

viewtopic.php?t=1274&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=1952

To note, making the auction even more laugable, the seller asked himself a question and answered it trying to follow up his completely nonsensical auction description using a shill Ebay ID.  I am assuming either he read the comments on the forum here about it while lurking or perhaps he was just getting innundated with comments about what a moron that he was because of all the BS he wrote in his auction.  

To make matters even worse, he did shill it(using the same Ebay ID he asked the question with) with a single bid and ended up winning the auction against no other bids.   It was so freaking pathetic, I didn't even bother to report it as I figured the $20 in Ebay fees were enough of a punishment and the fact that no one else bid effectively made it a victimless crime.

Now that "both" parties have left positive feeback, I am just waiting for him to relist this auction a month or two down the road with one of the IDs(preferably the original one he used to sell it) so we can laugh about it even further.
