happy moreover because i have seen the latest prices of this module and, let me say, they are far overestimating this item!

Nice win, Axel.



I noticed this phrase in the Italian description...



Copertina morbida



I think we may have discussed this before.  Isn't this some sort of cardboard?



It sounds to me like some sort of poisonous snake or Harry Potter curse:



"Copertina Morbida!" shouted Harry, and Ron's red hair exploded."  :lol:



Remind us what it means.   :?

These are crude translations and not exact.

Copertina morbida means "cover soft."

"copertina praticamente perfetta" means "cover practically perfect."

If he gets it, he got a great deal.  I say that because the Italian Post Office doesn't have the best track record with regards to the limited number of transactions I have had with it. :roll:

Other than a watered-down DG that was going to the UK, the only countries I've had issues with are Canada and Italy.

The explanation I got from our local post office with regard to problems shipping to Italy from the U.S. is that the both countries have 5-digit postal codes, which apparently confuses some postal workers in the U.S.   :D

Merlin, we haven't forgotten you. What trickery is this?

I was gonna say, CSH knows what a 11 blister is.  :? Congrats, that's a $50 blister.

hey guys!

had a fun day today mooching around Perth with Brendon. While there, we decided to take a look over at the famous store "Valhalla"

wow.

there was an incomplete older-print basic set there for $75AU and there were like not even rare novels at $60AU. most of the D&D/AD&D stuff varied from $30AU to about $60AU and this was rubbishy stuff that you can get on ebay for a fraction of that.

but upon sifting around i actually found something to purchase!!!!! HOLY COW BATMAN!!!!!!!!!

Birthright Players Secrets of Hogunmark.......for the nice price of $11.80AU.

not bad really. actually found something reasonable amongst the ridiculously price/re-shrinked stock he had.

he also keep his stock/catalog/database on a commodore amiga! which apparently still runs at 95% even after 17 years. the place was a shambles and i didnt have the heart to tell the guy that what would he do if the computer broke!

sheesh

Must be the "tall poppy" effect.   :D

Have a great trip, Al!
