True story, but obviously he was way off...  a Fazzlewood... as if  :roll:

Seriously, a very public and sincere thank-you to Deimos who's suggested to this newbie more than a couple game stores to check out - Thanks!

I suspect yes. :)

You couldn't have come close to buying those magazines individually for anything like what you paid.



Yeah.  You done good.  8O

If I hadn't had to give a final today I'd have been bidding on that lot.

Very nice Chris!  I was watching that one, but decided not to bid, having completed my early TDs  a few months ago via Doug's sale on rpgmarketplace :D

Whew!  I hope I didn't cut out any other Acaeum folks.  Much of the bidding was by newbies.

I was in there too, but could not bid what it was worth anyway, so I quit early on.

Had I known about that lot I doubt you would have won it at that price.  Nice win.

Great book, and not a bad price (Fwiw, mine is in FAR worse condition!!) - congrats


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

Mine's in far worse condition as well.  (Though it's about what was expected for the price I paid.)

Another minor find.



http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... K:MEWNX:IT



The PHB is definately a 3rd print. The cover is solid with normal shelf wear. Remains of a price sticker, a slightly faded spine, and the fact the book was used as a writing blotter are the main detractors. Inside, the pages are very clean, with only a couple of minor stains and 'oops' marks, plus the owner's name in small red ink on the inside cover.



The surprise turned out to be the MM. It's a 4th print with red flyleaves. The inside is barely marred at all. The cover has a slightly faded spine, residue from a price sticker, and some 'indenting' like it had been stuck between rough surfaces and drawn out. None of the 'indenting' removed the cover material, though. Otherwise, it's very solid, with only a slight fraying of corners from shelf wear.



The rest are pretty plain items, but mostly in quite good shape overall. The owner did not make it a habit to write in his books... at least not on purpose. Still nice for $6 an item (inc. shipping).

Check the vampire entry for the errata, and the prices in the last-page catalog, please :D  See viewtopic.php?t=3266

Run your hand over the cover of that Player's Handbook.  It looks like one of the higher quality printings with the tougher, more elastic material over the cardboard.  Can you feel a light texture to the cover?

The vampire does lose 1/3rd of its hit points every round. Most items do not have prices, except for The Dragon, and on the back Star Probe and Star Empires do as well, but that's it. I'll add this info to the other thread.
