Did you mean to put this in the Laughable Item Description thread?

5 1st Ed. Books and 6 modules (5 D&D and 1 JG) for $25.00?

Granted, the modules are not in the best of shape, but that's still a reasonable price.

p.s. The title is funny though   :o

I never mentioned anything about the price being "unreasonable".  The auction still has 6+ days to go.  If it ended at the current price it would be exceptionally reasonable if for nothing else than the Tegel Manor.

The "Recent Fun Finds" thread is generally for Ebay auctions that have already ended and won by a member.  That is why I asked the question.

very nice find!  I love that coloring book:  it has fantastic art -- and a mini dungeon-crawling game in the center.


Shanghai fun & friends!

Took some time to review that DMG. I figured it was a 3rd print (which everyone seems to call a 1st). Well, this is true first print DMG. The search is finally over!!! 8O  :D

That seems to me to be a pretty obvious 1st print.  The best telling sign is to check out the location of the Wizard logo.  If its a 1st print, the Wizard logo almost completely covers the other wizard's foot.  All later prints, the Wizard logo is raised up from there. :)

On the surface this seems like a wash at best. I was simply looking for a decent copy of FR HC - yeah, I know that makes all one of me. :D



They arrived today and I flipped through them real quick. And damn it, looked liked the owner wrote their name in blue ink on the flyleaf. But wait...looks like and aweful lot of writing. Well, what do you know, it is autographed by Grubb and Greenwood 8O



Without offending any of you autograph hounds - I generally would never go out of my way to get an autographed book. And I would never ask for one. But this was a what I would a call a fun find, nevertheless.

I found an almost-complete copy of the first Forgotten Realms boxed set.  It's missing one of the two hex transparencies.

Apparently, the missing transparent hex map grew to a Kara-Tur Trail Map, complete with folder.  :)

I just got the 3 core books (MM, PHB, DMG) all Wizard logo, not sure of the printings... for a whopping $15.

I plan to give them as gifts, Unless they turn out to be earlier prints.

Seemed like a good buy to me.

Just bought a 2nd print DMG, which, I am hoping beyond all hope, it is an alpha or beta. :) If not, no big deal, since I needed it anyway... but, one can always dream to get a cheapie and have it turn into something sweet.
