Still no bids on it... Coug would sell that as NM, or claim it has authentic aging...

This seller has a great sense of humor in his auction title (except that he misspelled Deities)



Dieities and Demigods-No Tentacles

It's time to be thinking about Christmas gifts.



** expired eBay auction **


All of these D&D/AD&D books are pre-owned and may have cover wear,
minor dog earring of pages & other signs of use.




Signs of use may include vomit and tape, I guess.  Take a look at Against the Giants.

I don't think including this in your auction listing helps your cause!



Help me finance my divorce and bid generously!  If you think the One Ring was bad news, I'll sell you a gold ring that will make your wife and best friend both disappear!

Poor guy.  Sounds like he didn't figure out his wife was a Port O Call for the Butcher, Baker and Candlestick maker until he discovered them that fateful and deadly nightside.  Was this listing a confession?  lol.

Someone "spost" to check their spelling before posting an auction and noting what is "pitchured"...

Seller be-charmed rewrites D&D history:



. . .  
** expired eBay auction **


The Revised Second Edition (R2E) contained significant rule changes, allowing the game to mesh with the “d20 system” widely used by other publishers in RPGs of the time.


R2E?  Who made up that abbreviation?  d20 released in the 1990s?  What universe had that sequence of events?

I'm sure it was added in as a keyword and draw for the kiddies.

This guy is actually threatening to break up this awesome lot. I am shaking in fear.

I don't know who is the bigger fool, the seller or whoever bid it up to this this amount.


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

Yeh, I always quake in fear when threatened by a seller! :lol:

You guys drive me crazy! Both times I listed this ($125.00 and $90.00) at least ten of you save it to "myebay" and make me think there is big interest, but none of you bid on them. Okay, this is my final lowering of the price on this set of all 14 games. If no one bids on them, I am going to break them up and sell each one separately for $5.00 each and five dollars shipping.

Oh, I don't know. $5.18 an item (shipping included) isn't too shabby for someone starting a collection. And it has an N4 and X13 (in shrink by the looks of it). Not worth it for resale, but a starter collection seems reasonable if in decent shape, which the box certainly does not qualify...

Ok Bill, tell me what your estimate would be if it is different than this one here:



N4 Treasure Hunt - $20

D&D Boxed Set - $10

X13 (Shrinkwrap) - $30?

The other 12 books - $36



Even if you priced the X13 at $20, that would only be $86, which is under the current bid.


RPG’s, D&D in particular has had a major influence in my life. It’s bonded me together with life long friends...it’s that bond in life not just as friends, but in our jokes, our mannerisms, and what we find funny. Invincible Overlord

So I only get page 1 if I bid on this? How do I bid on the rest of the pages or do I have to find them in a separate auction?! :lol:

Here's pg2 - doesn't seem to make sense though - maybe it's some kind of campaign crossover thing :lol:

(To be fair - I reckon 1 page of Dragonlance is about enough for anyone, but there's no accounting for taste!)


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

seller has a few hardbacks - if you BIN them all perhaps you'll get a postage discount!

Boy, I hope he ships to the US. That way, I can get nailed on the exchange rate as well! :)



And while we're on the topic of over-charging, why should you get hammered for 5 pounds additional on an Unearthed Arcana or a Fiend Folio over a Deities & Demigods or a Players Handbook? Where is the logic, my friends? :lol:
