And how about that damn Permanent Character Recored book. That thing is always well-used.


I have 2 of those unused, they show up in multiples from time to time really cheap usually.

That's the way with things like character sheets.  They're either unused and in great shape, or used and nearly destroyed.  We really shouldn't have valuations for the middle grades.  :lol:

Yep, they have had a few of those packs up.  Still a great snag.  Wonder how many they have?  Had never seen or heard of it until recently.  It would be nice to know how many different anniversary packs were produced.

What an unusual day.
I went to pick up some paints for my minis, and I figured I'd get them at this miniature wargaming store that happened to be right across from the craft store where I had to pick up my wife's mug, and also right near the Post Office...... blah blah blah. Under one of the huge scenery tables, the owner had stuffed 5 big cardboard boxes of used D&D stuff. I got:

ToEE WITH THE MAP!
Planescape Campaign Boxed set
Planes of Law set
Planes of Chaos set
Red Circle (T&T)
The Shire MERP
Birthright Havens of the Great Bay

Unfortunately they were a bit expensive, $3 each for the books and $5 each per boxed set.
$29 almost broke me. He still has a boatload of Runequest, Talislanta, Top Secret and Palladium stuff. Not to mention AD&D hardcovers at $3 each. I'm off to hit the bank!

There are no bad editions of D&D, just Boring Players and Unimaginative DMs.

*checks back through my eBay watch list*
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8769536241

Hmm... ;)

Oh great, but just noticed I failed to place a snipe (as well as a bid) on the other two parts of the JG Shield that I need. Just closed at $17:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8769947759

Might've been cheaper to have bought that other auction in the UK they were "accidentally" split into, a couple of months back... :?

Not a hugely spectacular buy, but fills a gap with a very nice condition copy. And for $0.99 who's complaining?

Nothing spectacular but this filled in the one hole ( to my knowledge ) I had on the folder/convention copies of Role Aids:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8764500776

I was surprised I never got a copy of this, I have multiples of most of the folders but this one always eluded me for some reason. O

Also got these in:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 8767647354

Again nothing spectacular but I just love getting a big lot of someone's used dice. especially the Gamescience ones....have always had an affinity for them....but not as bad as the one for Fiend Folios :)

I think that Fez I is a really good find. I sorta have a thing for dice, too. And custom bags to hold them...

The old Fez crew still runs tournaments at GenCon, and when we get old Roleaids Fez submitted we always let them know. The bidding goes nicely...

Congratulations on winning the 1st print woody, David!

Somehow, I just knew I was going to lose that one to you.  Ah, well...

Isn't Fez one of the gang on That 70s Show?
