Some issues of WD in that era - from number 20 to 50 - were downright fantastic in AD&D game terms - I remember fondly the necromancer and all the published character classes. They had extremely interesting spells and capabilities, and greatly enhanced the game providing plots when the TSR world was much behind, in the age of Go in-kill the monster-loot the treasure dungeons.

Oh yes, it's costly. But there are two boxes of miniatures inside - 40 pieces in all. That adds up weight.

Well, here is a rather optimistic opening bid: 8O



cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... 6&rd=1



Maybe he thinks the ORIGINAL artwork that he has added makes these much more valuable, even without the box or the reference sheets. :roll:

Geez, I wonder if he is going to be disapointed when his auction doesn't sell. :wink:

Optomistic or looney? Obviously never bothered to research from the experts (you all).

Sh*t, I get those to go along with the $1000.00 Deities & Demigods, and I'll be set!! :wink:



BTW, anyone know whatever happened with f*cknut anyway?

$60.00 plus shipping: 8O

cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... 7&rd=1



Not only that, but the description lists it new and in an unopened box, but the picture shows everything spread out on a counter. :?

F'nut was a guy who listed a $1,000 Deities & Demigods, then started FOTH-ing (Flying Off The Handle) at everyone who e-mailed him to tell him he was a loon — he picked up his unwanted nickname by calling everyone "a fucknut."



Needless to say, he got a fake bid, which led to great mirth for everyone. Hasn't been heard from since ...



Here's the original listing:

Thanks for the info!  Pretty funny. Can't imagine ANYONE thinking it would be worth that much, did he think it had a Wonka Golden Ticket in it or something? :roll:

WD #2 (nice copy, but not "perfect"); $137

Check out <garasharp>'s bidding history. ;)



Mentioned to the winner bid in passing, but they were happy enough to go with what turned out (surprise!) to be the final price. 8O

Ahh, there is nothing quite like paying 10 times the value of the actual items worth.  :roll:
