Yes, my 1st MM softcover is beat up. I figured a taped spine is better than shredded one.

The Basic Book, I have a "2nd" but because of the weak evidence for which is a 1st, I'm not to hot to bid up one.


Futures bright,

Paul

Advanced D&D Players Handbook | eBay

Seller writes:

"All you really need to play Advanced Dungeons and Dragons is this book and the Dungeon Masters Guide (see my other items) plus a few dice, a pencil and paper."

Think he forgot to mention the tube of KY they will need for the reaming the buyer just took.... 8O


The buyer spread the KY himself 8O   This book should never have gone for that, the seller is just laughing right now.

***Non-D&D Warning***

This is just hilarious.  Not only the price, but the auctioning of a Vampire the Masquerade book as though it is some rare Hemingway tome or something.  Plus the fellow is calling it a first edition when it is the revised or 3rd edition game rules anyhow.

Do we get the kitty if we hit the $60 BIN and pay via PayPal?

Sure...the price is ridiculous...but it's that so often overused (( RARE )) that is what really gets me. However...Seller has provided a SUBMIT BEST OFFER, so I'm sure your comments are welcome!  :twisted:  :wink:

What the heck?
$300?! They need more than a mesmerising kitty to shift that lot. :roll:

It only gets worse after the ULTRA RARE start... (well, at least they don't hate selling to Canadians unlike the previous seller :lol:)

I am tempted to offer $1. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

The worst part is that my offer would be closer to the actual value of the items than the $300.00 BIN. :P

Good question.  I'd like to know what a "plkeanty of modules" is?  Is that like a murder of crows?

It was the first one I've seen in two years of actively looking for one so I set a very high conditional bid... I was actually relieved it only went for $49, and was expecting it to break $100 potentially.  I only have a couple RP blister packs left for a complete set of the AD&D line except for the Wyrms packs which seem a bit puny for dragon minis and hence I have less interest in them.  The big dragon RP box sets are much better.   :D

That is the first time I've seen that particular mini on the auction block also, so that wasn't a totally insane price. The high bidder is a major player in the 11 series arena and also a member I believe. Congrats!!  :wink:

I was really after the Amethyst and Emerald wyrms but as fate goes I was outbid... BLACKMOOR!!  :evil:  :evil:  :wink:  :lol:
