NB. happy to post this in the other section if this isn't the appropriate thread.


Well, if you compare the Players Handbook Paladin in Hell to the original, you will notice that the "Sutherland" has been moved to just below the right hand of the barbed devil. Since both sets of "Sutherland"s are identical it means that the word had to be literally transferred to a new location, probably by photomechanical means. Perhaps the area was lightened to increase the contrast.

We have a few pieces that are double signed in a similar manner. The artist wanted to make sure his signature will be visible in the finished product. Before they take a photo and burn a plate they just brush on a little white paint then sign over that. Hope this helps. :)

Well...I am not sure how interesting it really is, but...IT BEGINS.... :o  :(  8O  :cry:

Today I began listing my Dungeons and Dragons trove (along with some MERP books).  Please note that I am again keeping my word.  The MERP books were reduced in the starting cost as I promised (except for ones that were relisted from prior Ebay listings).  As promised, I am getting out.  

Here is the link to my Ebay Store eBay listings

Feel free to share it with anyone who might be interested.


May Eru's light shine upon you always.

I'd never heard of you until the recent debate on this forum.  But you say these prices are reduced?!? (He said, opening to start the interesting exchange between morgansurname and other forum members again  :wink: )

PLAYING DEVIL'S ADVOCATE EH...? :evil:

As stated some of the books are starting at cost.  These are some that were not relisted from a previous no sale.

Ah, yes - I remember when I used to love role-playing a Polosin. . . they are some sort of sub-class of Bard if I'm not mistaken.

I think you have to be a gnome though. . .

Yes, I believe a Polosin is a Paladin which hails from Poland.  They are quite an interesting character to play.  I think they can only have a maximum INT and WIS of 12.  They also must steal any pierogies they happen upon, which creates quite a dilemma with their religion.  :)

Is that stuff just in your ebay store or listed on ebay itself?

How much did you pay in ebay fees?
