I think we've been looking at the same items - I asked him about combined shipping on both of those and he put it on the Q&A section :P

Nice pickup on the Naked Doom last night....I didn't want to go above 15 for it :twisted:


Yep, I had some trouble getting him to combine the shipping into the invoice. He at first wanted me to pay $2.25 over what it would have cost to send each item seperately. We got it sorted out though.

I have been sort of looking mostly for T&T and JG items of late.
Most of the time I loose auctions, but for some things (Especially stuff that is not minty) it seems the big guys are either not interested, or perhaps they already have half a dozen minty copies of it.

The Naked Doom Solo was a decent buy at $15.50 I think.
As many of the early T&T Items are it is OOP and tuff to find.

Plus I had placed some bids on the T&T Buffalo Castle Solo earlier this month (The one that sold for $231.50..   8O   ..) and it was likely a first print.
So getting the one in this listing for free was real nice.
Its a fourth print, but still....... at zero cost......

From another seller, I recently was able to get three other middle/early issue T&T Solo's at about $3.11 (Average) each and a SW set of Character Sheets too. They are probably later prints of those Solo's. (Still have'nt gotten them)

I also snagged a copy of the Death Trap Equalizer (Fourth Print) for $15.50 a few days ago and right now there is a first print that is at $119 plus.....  :(  :evil: and still going.   :roll:

Perhaps some day I will try harder for first prints but for now any print run will do it.

Well, golly. If the little ol' serleran had known....

I just traded away a lot of T&T stuff I had no use for, including 2 copies of each of the first 6 Solos (not 1st prints, of course - I'm not always an idiot.) Oh well. I'd have been much happier doing so with an Acaeum member.


Anyway, to stay on track and on topic ---

I found, almost literally, an almost near mint (it had a very light ding on the upper spine and right corner) Rules Cyclopedia. The person who had it did not know what it was, thinking it was for 3.5 D&D and asked if I wanted it - I said "sure, if you don't." Now, I don't have to find another one.


Those who can, don't. Those who should not, do.

Lovely book - how much are they running to these days?


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

You're all corrupting me:   bad, evil people.;)



I was supposed to selling, not buying.  I haven't seen one in a long time, but I did pick this up, and I think the price is good, please tell me if I'm off the mark.

So...

I was showing a friend the pictures of ExTSR's game stash...which are posted over on another thread...when my wife calls from Value Village thrift store.

She says, "There are some hardbacks here...one of them is called De-i-ties and Dem-i-gods?

"How many pages?" I ask.

"Hmmm....129."

"Dang!"

"Wait," she says, "Here's another one...hmmm...looking at the last page....144."

"Whoohoo!"

"Wait," she says, "We got modules and magazines here.  Is Dungeon good?"

   There was just enough time for me to drive over there and snap up modules and magazines at 49 cents each as well as 1st Edition hardbacks at $2.99.  (I took the good ones...leaving the ones too far gone for the next scavenger.)

   I got some Dungeon magazines modules, hardbacks...all.  :twisted:

   And my wife is hot too!  8O  (Not sure if I mentioned that earlier.)

Dang. Nice.

I think my wife is hot, but she hasn't found me any role playing book bargains yet! I'll have to get her on to it!
