Hmm, I'm not sure why it is not replacing the item number with a ebay preview.

This was at one time probably posted in the Ridiculous Auction thread as for many moths this was listed for way more than what it should have been. However recently I noticed the price dropped (still too high in my opinion, nor do I even need what is being sold) but the new description is simply hilarious. Nothing like be cursed into buying something!

Let's try that. Hilarious. Greyhawk Ruins, in the SW, isn't worth $250, let alone chewed up lol. And that box set didn't even come with dice, so, he's just crazy on like 7 fronts. Guys like him do our hobby proud!!  PDT_Armataz_01_02

Wow, I didn't think that eBay would allow the use of such colorful language.

I'm sure it won't be up for long - a few too many f-bombs.

WOW, that's funny.  I think it was meant to say "got a little shelf wear" instead of "a little shit shelf wine".

In other words, great condition! (if you ignore the missing covers)

I think the "Posted with eBay Mobile" tag at the end explains it all.

Wow, now that I have stopped laughing, if I sell a house with three walls and no roof would that qualify as a "decent shape" fixer-upper?  I mean no disrespect, but as I look at my well loved Kool-Aid stained books with pencil marks, etc. from over 20 years of gaming, those books at least have covers.  I wish this person well in his/her sales, but... snigger... sorry can't stop laughing.

"MINT"

(... well, except for those pesky holes ... )

Maybe "mint" is referring to the flavor rather than the condition.

More of a groaner than laughable...

States a 'first print', which usually means the seller thinks all DMGs with the efreet are 1st print, and the Easley cover to be the second.

Unless one takes the time to glance at the title sheet, where it clearly states 'revised edition', which would indicate at least one prior printing.

Read the book, people!  :wink:

Isn´t this still a copyright infringement, even if the books are 30+ years old? I´ve recently seen color copies of D&D3 for sale as well.

Looking at the pictures it seems that at least some of the material in them is photocopied, making its sale a big no-no. But at least they're "in good condition and complete".  :P
