I gave that some serious thought, but I was unsure if it would have any useful stuff.

If it's any consolation, Nostnaidag is missing it's map.

I picked Quest up a few months ago from a seller that had 3 of them $10 each (probably should have bought all 3).  If I recall correctly it is mainly a book that tries to educate the DM on storylines such as being a better DM, storytelling, and some ideas for adventures.

I would have bid more on Archaeron if the Warrior book was there too.

Nice one.  I assume you meant "Lizard logo", or we've got another #@$%$# printing to sort out.  :lol:

Yes Lizard. I was actually thinking to myself...I think I had used Wizard while I was away. Modified it to reflect the Lizard.

Today I was in the local Halfprice books where I live. Checked out the games secction while I was there and nothing new. Checked out the trade paperback book section for any Chaosium books I might not have, nothing new...Sigh... Hit the Sci-Fi / Fantasy section... And lo and behold I see sitting on the top of the shelves...

From the Ashes boxed set $14.98

City of Greyhawk boxed set $14.98

In the FtA box I find the books and map from the 83 WoG set in mint condition. By this time my hands are shaking. The FtA box is complete as well in and in mint condition.

Check the CoG box and find WGA1, Falcon's Revenge with the building punch outs still there and unpunched and mint. The box is complete and mint it even has a small catalog as did FtA.

I ended up with 4 seperate products completely mint condition for a grand total of $35.00.. Two of which Ive been looking for a long time.

Great luck there. You have to love HPB. We have three here nd I try to make it to at least one each week. It is amazing how many items I have that have their price sticker on them.

Man, this was just a token bid:

Either everyone was asleep, or didn't care, but at $11.87 shipped per dragon, I'll take it!

I have been trying to avoid miniatures at all cost. I have given in a few times recently and bought junk fairly cheaply just to get the fix. I looked at that one a few times but I was able to avoid bidding. Nice buy...congrats!

Just to share my joy with you all: last week these two modules were delivered at my house.

cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... 8788838879

cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... 8790860601

Most of you might not care a damn about them, however I'm a Forgotten Realms fanatic, and I've been searching for these in shrinkwrap for about 8 months.

With these out I'm almost done with my FR collection, I am missing only 2 rare-to-find items, and a few rather trivial ones.

By chance, has anyone got a shrinkwrapped Desert of Desolation or Under Illefarn?

We all know that WONDERFUL feeling of filling longstanding gaps in our personal obsessions. Congrats.

I've already begun collecting 1st Edition AD&D modules, D&D modules, and Ravenloft. I think my main focus will be Ravenloft. I already own most of the difficult Ravenloft items (including Requiem and Bleak House, although the latter has not be delivered to me yet), the rest will be quite easy.

grodog: that would do ok for me, seriously, however I don't think you mean to part with it.
