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!


very nice frank....nice mini-haul with others to follow :D

Talislanta you say??  If you get any, care to share the wealth Deadlord?? ;)


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

*checks back through my eBay watch list*

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:

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?

Oh, wait, wait ... I didn't see that we were referencing an auction mentioned above. I get it now — the wizard's name is Fez. Gotcha.

(definite no-no, though, on the PayPal credit card policy, which the seller spells out not once, but twice.)

Something a little interesting.  This lot has the "FREE" Fast-Play Game booklet which is somewhat hard to find.  Plus some other decent stuff . . . and I was the only one to bid!

Got a very pleasing lot over the weekend from a chap who answered a want ad saying that he had a few bits and pieces and would I be interested.

£150 got me 6 boxes of stuff - 100+ Dragons mags & 180 seperate AD&D items most of which are in immaculate condition. A couple of highlights for my collection (FR) were Menzoberanzxan and code of the Harpers, but the stuff to sell include the Planescape box set and Planes of Chaos, complete guide to Necromancers, H2 & H4 (alas no H1) , another 10 or 12 box sets, most of the FR series, Tales of the outer planes, a couple of Greyhawk mods, 3 or 4 of the later DL adventure packs with uncut counters etc etc.

This nice chap even delivered them to my door on Sunday morning - the joy on my wifes face when she came downstairs to find a 6' high stack of boxes on the kitchen floor!! (I hope this s*** isn't hanging around for long)!!

I worked out that the bits that I put in my own collection would have probably coat me about £125 and it still leaves me 160 bits to sell.

A good day - the only response I normally get from ads is AD&D trivia games ('its never been used' - 'no cos its crap') and space marines from 15 year olds that have discovered girls - just goes to show it pays to persevere.

Hoody frickin' hoo

Ok, I don't get too many fun finds but here is something I opened this morning: I bought four german Companion mods plus Der Insel der Schrecken (X1) for $20 off ebay. I can't speak German but I liked the price, so I figured they would be good novelty reader copies, whatever (yes I know I just said I couldn't read German, well done...I see we have both attended the school for the gifted...) ANYWAY- after waiting about 4 weeks longer than expected due to some kind of German Mail man strike I get the mail this morning and I unwrap a crappy cheapo envelope to see all four in perfect condition....shrinkwrapped!

I am happy. My find was fun.


Bree-Yark!
