that sellers low feedback would make me nervous if i won it - serious bidders should inquire if the indivdual is willing to use ebay escrow! I ha ve used it before its a good service but it would cost about a $100 US to use.

The phrase "trade bait" just popped into my head. I did a search and found this post by faro regarding the two Tamos:

Yeah, I thought I recalled something like that.  I wonder if it paid off?

Sure did, pizza sauce, beer, vomit, the usual.  Which is why I'll have to sell the Kinkos copy rather than the original when the time comes around.

I'm not a condition prude, but why-oh-why wouldn't you play with the copy instead of the original?  Are you going for the "well-loved" look?  :lol:

(I'd still give ya fifty bucks if the vomit isn't caked on too thick, if you're thinking of selling it...  :lol: )

Seen any higher res photos?  


I mailed the seller about additional photos.  Received the following this morning.  Must take a long time to charge camera batteries.

Many thanks for your enquiry.
Will do as soon as my camera battery has re charged!
Kind regards,
Julie

That is exactly what I got too - sent yesterday at 10pm.  Assuming that they work for a living, I wouldn't expect to get any pics until tonight - although if it takes longer I would start to worry...

Actually, I am bidder #4, but if it's going over $1,200 I will not be bidding again. (reverts to dreaming about finding one in a second hand store or getting one in an RPG lot for $1.00)

What is the hook and plot of Tomoachan?  

It's set in Greyhawk, and the original sells for big bucks, but otherwise I don't know anything about it.  

Since it's so highly regarded, I was wondering if somebody could give me a rundown of what the adventure is like.

Thanks,
Keith

Once completed, it looks like the Wikipedia dungeon module project will be a pretty good source for my previous question on Tomoachan.

If you haven't seen it, the link is
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Du ... ns_modules

Of course, you never quite know what you get with Wikipedia, but it's a fun place to visit.

I'd be hesitant to do anything with D&D stuff on Wiki.  It has a well earned reputation of being run by a bunch of 3E fan boys, so any info that you are going to get is very likely to be heavily slanted to how its "Not 3E".  :roll:   We had a brief discussion about it over on DF if anyone cares to look:

Thanks for the tip.  I always take Wiki with a grain of salt ... if not a shot of tequila.

Thanks,
Keith

I clicked on the Wiki link.  It seems pretty straightforward.

I agree.  Grain of salt necessary.  The 3E fanboys will beat the hell out of it every day, forcing you to continually change it back, ad nauseum.  One of the main reasons I've decided never to involve myself in anything Wiki related....

Someone should rent some space on the Acaeum server and start a D&D wiki. 8)

Such an effort would really help those of us who have gaps in our knowledge of vintage D&D material.
