Nice job on the Dungeon! And you can never have enough dice - even if you never use them  8O


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

Indeed.  Those are nice dice at twice the price.

They had 3 sets available, so I grabbed two... one to use and one to keep. ;)

Some might consider the price pretty high but it works out great for my personal collection.

I was watching that one myself, but missed it. Had to leave for a few hours, so put in bids on a GDG&H and Swords & Spells offered by bclarkie an hour before those ended. Not expecting to win, I hoped to come back in time for this one. When I finally came back, it was well past all three auctions. Extremely surprised to find I won the GDG&H offered by bclarkie.



That completes my search for all the OD&D books, though I could use a better copy of S&S.

Yeah, I was very surprised to see that I got it for that price.  I am most pleased.

Not a "find", strictly speaking, but still fun.



A dear friend of mine came over yesterday with some stuff she wants me to sell for her on ebay.  As a token of her appreciation for the help, she handed me a paper bag full of her old OD&D rule books and early printing supplements, plus her old low-impact dice (i.e., nearly spherical d20).  Apparently, she used to play weekly back in the early 70s.  I knew nothing about this, but my wife had apparently told her I was really into D&D collecting, which led to the "Oh, I think I still have some of my old books" remark, and so on.



Very sweet of her!

Please forgive me gentlefolk for bursting through the door of the chapel during service, but a vein of gold was found while picking away at the tunnels below hill eBay.



I have sought this vein for near five years and my labors have been for naught--until today.



A year ago, I thought I was nearing the source of the motherload, but the granite was too deep and the cost too high.



In time determination does pay.

Thank you.

In the early eighties, during the last recession, I managed to get a job washing dishes. As a Freshmen in High School I felt fortunate, but even working four days a week, those minimum wage dollars barely covered the cost of my car loan (a Datsun B-210), car insurance, and gas.

At that time, I looked at the ad from D. B. Enterprises for the Dragonbone, but it was an expenditure that was beyond what my disposable income provided.

Even today, I will pay hell from my wife--there are two little ones now to consider--but damn, I am glad to have taken the plunge.
