My stuff is mostly stored, but it is complete documented via excel. I still make duplicate purchases... 8O  

It would help is they were in bookcases. At least I could see them.


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

Proudly displayed on shelves I constructed in our basement

see 404 Not Found, although the collection has expanded somewhat since this was taken.

Its 42 linear feet of shelving.

Impressive, for the link you need to remove or seperate the "," from the end as I did in the quote above for it to work.

The software tries to guess URLs automatically.  Sometimes, you need to put
Code:
[url] [/url]
around them if they have punctuation nearby.  :wink:

Hey, what about the "filled shelves".

Are all those boxes full of D&D stuff?

One second, getting pictures of filled shelves.

Yes the boxes were full of rpg items.

Had to get rid of that ugly light also.

Nice, Mike.

Is that a complete run of box sets (woodys & whiteys)?  Very cool.

I also like the bookends; are they maces?  My weapon of choice.

Thanks!

I still need a 2nd print woody.

Yes the bookends are maces, and a set of unicorn heads. I actually won the mace ones off ebay.

Just moved house and my Lounge is full! My partner is very tolerant luckily...

Back on topic tho the best thing I find to do with my collection is use it. I read the items frequently (well the non-shrink stuff at any rate!) and I push my PCs from setting to setting to give them a flavour of each. Of course this means I have a practical reason to read the background stuff which I enjoy almost as much as playing them.

That's a very impressive collection!  The shelving is quite nice also.  

What's the box on the 2nd shelf from the bottom with the Elmore art from the Metzer basic set?

That's the kinda shelving I want!  Wouldn't mind filling it like that either :)  At the very least, the next place I move to has to have more wallspace for shelving units.  As it is now, I feel like I live and sleep in a library :)

Here is my clutter problem - I'm out of space stacking things higher and its starting to pile up in front.

The good stuff is hiding behind the doors on the bottom left and the palm tree is an illusion to make it seem warming here in Canada :)

I believe that is a TSR licensed puzzle.

Nice picts, Mike. Must feel great to get it all up. Do you feel like the collection has more room to grow now?

Thanks for all the comments  :D . I am glad to finally be able to display the collection.

Exactly right. It is a 551 piece puzzle licensed by TSR.

I have plans to remove the store bought bookshelf and replace it with one matching the smaller one. My want list is down to about 85 - 90 items now. Mostly different printings. I think this room will hold everything for a while, but you never know. I am always looking  :) .

Thats how mine was in the old place.

btw. You have some serious orb activity going on in one of those pictures. You might have to call in Ghost Hunters if you are also experiencing other odd occurances.  :wink:
