Isn't funny how fast they want you out of the hospital after the baby is born. "here you go, have a nice day. Now get the he'll out of here."


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

Oh I am definitely getting what sleep I can, when I can.  Just getting to enjoy the new experiences day to day is amazing. :D

I have plenty of books to read her :wink:  Mommy can read all of the 'childrens' books to her :)

Lookie what I found at the bottom.



LINKY



Well-used as stated. Edges worn of most color and some fraying at the corners; page edges browned from use; some occasional small stains and pencil marks; a couple of events where something was spilled then quickly cleaned up (mostly affected one edge); name in pen on the endpage. Good point is no pictures were colored in. All told, probably GD+ to VG-.



But I now have 1st prints of all 3 core books. Me a happy camper from that perspective. :D



And no, the D&DG is not infested by tentacles.

Nothing super-rare, but I've been having some luck with kijiji lately... found a wizard Holmes with SW Geomorphs & B3 tucked inside :)

Image

From another seller, a nice lot with complete Gaz's and A1-4:

Image

Pretty much done with FR, but needed the Horde & Kara-tur box sets:

Image

All local pickups - just glad to be able to find a way to keep collecting while our national postal carrier is striking!


I draw the line at collecting... D&D Towels.

Did we need: Jade Magi Sewer Crawl

Shoulda been: ".. from Pangreenia to Floratopolis, from mystical Treeonia of spectral Forests to Schruborial dimensions."  - The Forests of Leng

here is a description i found for one of the adventures... it looks like there were more than just these 4... but the fact they were in shrink wrap... sealed the deal for me (pun intended)

Advanced Dungeons and Dragons
1 on 1
Challenge of Druid's Grove
A one on one Adventure for two high level magic users
There are two books:  One of you becomes Ar-Kane, a great wizard.  The other is his rival, Renwood, a powerful Druid.  The two of you have been sent by your elders to try and gain the wonders, the wealth, and the magical objects that lie hidden in the deadly Lath's Grove.
You enter the terrifying wood without a map to guide you, knowing that evil creatures are waiting to stop you at every turn.  As you select your magical spell from your spellbook, you hope you have chosen wisely, for you know your enemies will be powerful.  (Your opponent takes the part of all monsters and enemies you fight, just as you take the part of any enemies he faces!)  An easy, diceless combat system simulates battle.
It is an exciting game of adventure and magic as you and your rival race to be the first to win through to the center of the Grove.  Everything you need to play is provided:  two books, magic spells, Combat Table, Character sheets.  No dice required.  All you provide is on friend and two pencils.
Play anytime!  Anywhere!  Play many times!  The game is always different!

If you are interested in some others in shrink for $25 each I would sell my copies.

I don't often get to visit used game/book stores, and even when I do, the result is usually pretty mediocre. So I was very pleased with my recent visits to some distant used book & old game stores. I got all this for a bit over $100:

Those are two different/separate copies of Fez I; both are in shrink, but the shrink on the second copy is pretty badly torn and there's a crease across the module. A number of other items are also in shrink of various conditions, including Catapult Run.

Admittedly, some of these items are pretty mundane/common, but they all fit my various idiosyncratic collecting parameters. Revised Heroes Unlimited is particularly cool IMO because of the 1987 Jeff Dee superhero artwork; the art itself isn't particularly spectacular (I prefer Jeff's earlier work), but it's an uncommon example of Jeff Dee superhero art that has nothing to do with V&V and Living Legends.

I never fully appreciated the cover art on the Gamelords modules until I saw them in person. They're pretty cool!

Indeed, very nice pick up.

The 1st éd. of Superhero 44 is pretty HTF. I remember only one for sale on ebay these last 5 years; but it was staple bound. Does the spiralbound look legit?

Congrads. That's the first time I've seen Catapult Run in shrinkwrap. I maybe wouldn't be opening that one up unless you suspect it may be a shop shrink. Between that and Fez, you've got $100 worth.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . minestrone soup.

I don't recall seeing Superhero 44 with staples.  I have seen about 4 of the coil bound ones - they are legit.
