You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

Dungeoneers Survival Guide including Dark & Hidden (seemingly in the wrapper):




** expired/removed eBay auction **




I would have gone for it but the seller wanted $105.50 for shipping to Canada.

** expired/removed eBay auction **


The Fringe Dweller returns to the shadows to survey the chaos swirling around him




Above is a post I made in the silliest auction price thread - having heard back from the seller, it would seem the price is almost justified :oops:

The following is the sellers reply to me of whats included in the auction, least of all the books from the OD&D set 8O



1.Greyhawk,
2.monsters and treasure
3.The under world & wilderness adventures


also 300+ lead figurines

(I have sent an email asking if the box is still present)

The phone numbers there for anyone who wants to deal more personally



So get the checkbook ready (I have asked for photos to authenticate the books and printings), seems i wont be in the position to buy having just purchased another house (thats 1 house Cougar :roll: ).

The sellers name is Darel and appears very genuine and admittedly new to both the computer age and Ebay.
He also has the following as part of the auction;

13 copies of The Dragon magazine 1976-1977 plus 3 white Dwarf magazines + judges guild ready ref sheets and ready cards A4 plus tsr monster manual 2 copies 1977 + 1 players hand book 1977
These are actually better reference books for D&D than Greyhawk series


So for those with a penchant for early Dragons and Judges Guild this is the time to snap up a bargain - I have asked for printing numbers and will post when I get the reply otherwise you can email Darel direct at
[url][email protected][/url], also may be worth mentioning the pitfalls of Diamond Dave :roll:  :evil: .

The Fringe Dweller slips back into the shadows awaiting the pursuing throng.

His disclaimer is hilarious!  If only it were that simple, all the criminals would be doing it.  For example:
DISCLAIMER: "By pulling me over, you agree that you are not an officer of the law, and I was not speeding."   :roll:

There is a niche of vigilante WoW players reporting these auctions to Blizzard and eBay. It's apparently against eBay rules (no more virtual auctions), and they will cancel the listing. Blizzard is said to hand out lifetime bans on any account caught selling their characters.

If your playing on a PvP (Players are always allowed to attack opposing side players) server, then that character could likely come along and tap your guy on the head causing him to instantly fall into a pile of ash on the ground. For a mere 380 bucks you could be mr. badasslavaswordsbigbluespear.

I started playing WoW a little while ago to spend more quality time with my sister. She plays nearly constantly. It's OK.
