That is a really weird desperate way to market yourself for your next music gig...
Unless of course someone wants to hire this duo to perform at the next NTRPG or Gen Con  :lol:

You're right. I feel embarrassed now.  :oops: Their music is very tender. Great stuff for background music during Pon Farr :D

This is not a shot at the seller (he obviously isn't aware), just the person going around asking the wrong questions...

Last time I sold a copy of this book I got this question a lot so let me just say that YES, this IS the version of the Monster Manual that has listings for both "Demon" and "Devil"!

I think the Blood Bowl reference was added later, looking at the sellers comments.  8)

I like how something can be 'Near Mint' and discoloured...  :roll:



Perhaps they are an ex-Troll & Toad employee!  :lol:

A few weeks ago, this seller had another monochrome AD&D module described as near mint but it was evident on the picture that the condition was very good to fine, not near mint. Seller answered to a question explaining that there was in fact some discoloration and other flaws....

Perhaps this seller's descriptions are standard, he has many SW items, some of them seem in great condition. It's the same seller that has an orange B3.

At least he posts a picture of the actual item he is selling, instead of a "stock" picture.

I would stay far away from this seller, lots of mega high prices, lots of shrink, lots of damage beneath the shrink.

$22.00 to ship?



I would have filed a complaint had I noticed this earlier. A priority mail box is only around $11.50 with delivery confirmation, give or take?

It's a 3rd print, not a 1st print. This guy needs some help...





Edited 05.26.10 - He DID change his title to reflect his. So maybe he's not that bad of a guy after all...

Look who the seller is. I somehow doubt he knows the diff between a 1st and 3rd. Probably thinks all monochromes are 1st prints and the G1-2-3 combo is 2nd.

Or $70 uninsured international rate.

(I sent an Inverness and Rahasia in separate, insured heavy-duty boxes to the other side of the world for about $10 less than that... :))
