Did you happen to get the dice that came with Bones of Power? From what I can remember, there is supposed to be 2 differently colored d6s but I would have to dig my copy out of storage to be sure. If they are supposed to be there, I'm not 100% sure what they are used for though.

No, they only had the books. Old, old stock just laying in a corner. For a couple of bucks, I said "what the hey..."

Stopped at a baseball card store near my house and found these in the 25¢ pile:

Now, if only I could find the rest!  :D

The First comic Elric titles aren't too hard to find, Hector---you should be able to get them in trade pb or in their original separate issues without too much difficulty.  I often find that Mile High Comics is a good source for cheap, not-too-rare comics:  Mile High Comics - Your New And Collectible Comic Book Store  (I've bought from them via eBay and their web store for years, and never been disappointed).

also give this one a try  Comic Books: Buy, Sell, Trade, Consign, Collect | mycomicshop.com

they are very reasonable on those 80s Indy comics, usually a $1 to $2. done lots of business with him through the site and his ebay store. he also runs auctions every month through his store

mile high is excellent as well, started buying from them in 78 when I was just a wee lad starting off with my uncles hand me down collection. started mowing yards in the summer and raking leaves fall winter just to fund my obsession with comics. lol

Wizards of the Coast has an office in Belgium of all places. They're not really doing D&D anymore these days, just Magic. But I got in touch with a former employee from back in the day when they were still doing D&D. And he happened to be cleaning out his garage.

Unfortunately a gamestore owner had been at his place last week and had picked up 5 boxes full of RPG goodies. Too bad really, but I picked up what was left. With some luck, he might put me in contact with some of his former colleagues.

I can send you my address if you need a place to store them.   :D

I did note that you had a couple of the silver anniversary banners.  Any chance you would part with one?   :P

that was a great haul, good for you!

if you did want to get rid of a banner, I would think the good guys at NTRPG Con would probably love one to display at the con, along with all of their other TSR posters....

Ok, this may make some people here cringe, but it was a fun find for me.

I was going through some of my old boxes and ran across my original play set.  I purchased this set a little after the original blue box came out.  The box has seen better days.  :D  :(  :oops:

Dragon Power D&D embroidery door knob pillow by Greenfield Needlewomen (TSR subsidiary). This is the only one of these I've ever seen.

Thanks! I forget to use search here sometimes. :)

I paid just a touch more than that old listing but it's such a niche item I'm happy with it.  :D

I still don't have that one, so congrats!  It's been elusive for me thus far.  I have to admit, I'm not overly aggressive when searching for it though...
