Can't get this link to work. Is it to the listing or just the picture?

If you are having trouble with links, just copy the auction number from the link and paste it into ebay.

misterspock already posted the description:

Attention ACAEUM users: PLEASE READ THE AUCTION DESCRIPTION CAREFULLY. I am not at my computer 24/7. Please don't bid on the item, and come back an hour later and change your mind. Or decide not to pay, because some "expert" on the ACAEUM told you differently. I don't mean to sound harsh, but I have only had problems dealing with Dungeons and Dragons ACAEUM users. They buy an item, and then they roll a couple of 10 sided dice and decide if they still want it. Thankfully this is the last Dungeons and Dragons item left to sell.

I'd be interested to find out if the lot wasn't just a big pile of crap.

I bought something from this seller recently, and I had no problems.  However, I am an equal-opportunity mocker.



Never have I seen a Dragon magazine described in such a way:

Somewhere around here, I have a Dragon with the title 'r' cut out, a B1(?) and A2 with the brand name cut out of the booklet, a MM with the red dragon interior pic cut out, and something else I can't think of at the moment.

May be more popular than at first thought.

I'm thinking someone's putting together a ransom note.

Sounds like a plot from one of those supernatural detective stories.

Imagine what kind of object/thing/person would be ransomed with a note based on pictures and words from D&D publications.
