Don't know if I've ever had someone throw stuff in after the fact, but I have had extra things not listed or tucked inside box sets.  That is always fun to find, even if it is a character sheet or something.

Hey Guys, I dropped by a used bookstore in downtown calgary today and picked up a few really nice items the best one was a 2nd print Players handbook near mint (still cracks when it opens) for $15.00.  Aslo got a bunch of modules (1st ed) Warhammer Roleplay hardbacks, warhammer 40k 1ed etc all for about $4.00 per book. :D

I love it when you fall into treasures like this :)

Since there have been no entries on this thread for some time...




** expired/removed eBay auction **




No big steal, but it was Fun!



By the way, shipped via media mail ($2 cost) in an envelope! $7.50 sure goes a long way.... :evil:


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

Nice find!



That Seller has a few other interesting items. Can't decide whether to bid on the Judges Guild lots or the:



Watermelon Nesting Decorations!  :)

Hi,

I found 5 issues of the RPGA European News in the top room last night.

No idea where they came from, but they were with a Silver Anniversary catalogue, so I've probably had them for a while.  :D

Cheers,
Malc

Who cares about the JG stuff and the decorations when the seller is also offering Star Trek wardrobe designer notes and patterns!

Now I just gotta decide if I am going to wear that spiffy white admiral's uniform from the first movie or the kick-ass red one from the second movie at Gen Con.  Hey Mike, if you want I will make you one too.  Or are you one of those dorks who would rather wear one of the Next Generation jumpsuits?

A special thanks to  spades1013 for helping me out with this treasure.  He tells me he has a few more rares hanging around.

Thanks James :)

Aww shucks, 'twerent nuthin'.  I'm just glad it made it safe and sound.  I would have crapped out my heart if something had happened to it in transit (insurance notwithstanding).

hey guys

well today (it arrived), i managed to get my hands on a Warriors of Mars....

and i feel somewhat embarrassed actually, to say that i got it for $16.44 plus shipping  :oops:  :oops:  :oops:  :oops:  :oops:

to say i am happy with the purchase, kinda goes off the scale really. its at a friends house, who tells me the condition is pretty good, but will give me a run down asap.

for that price though, i would be happy with it falling to pieces.

well thats my one good deal for the year, so i can now go back to constantly losing auctions!

Congrats, Blackie! Which is your favorite out of the three? Fazzle will always be mine.
Speaking of which, I think there was confusion a little while back about what three modules I had called the Holy Trinity. It was C1/2 and Fazzle, those being tourney mods AND American-made. Not that ST1 sucks or anything.......... I realize Tsojconth was left out, but Holy Quadrinity didn't sound right, and Tsoj has consistently been less sought-after than the Trinity mods for some reason.

Looks nice, Jeff.  How much did Spades have to pay the guy down at Kinko's?
