why has it got the european format?!? wasn't it a tournament module? ...i've always though that the tournament was an US tournament...

ST1 was a UK item (i think?) was designed specifically and was crap anyway hence why it is super-rare nowadays :D

its funny that tho isnt it - super fab item = very common

crap item = very rare

:D

This goes to my much-repeated question about Ebay pricing:  Why?

Why do some sellers list prices that are far out of proportion to the obvious market value of an item.

BUT...this question just got answered over on another thread when that piccolo.gatto guy paid one billion dollars for a $20 module.

I guess that's why I'm not making money on Ebay.

Now that I am done bitching about not being in the right place at the time, here was one circumstance where I was:


** expired eBay auction **


Set is very nice.  :)  

Anyone interested in either of my other 4th print set?  <Seriously>

Very nice one, indeed.  Way to go Brian!  What are those extra little sheets behind the ref sheets in the main pic?

Just two resellers looking to make a profit were in on this one . . .  All five BECMI plus World of Greyhawk and Battlesystem for only $43.66 plus $13.50 shipping!

cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem& ... 0013292178

I liked the look of this one so much I placed an early bid to keep others from "asking" to BIN . . . and then set my snipe.  :D

Close, Al.  I believe it is the fairy logo ST1 you're thinking of.

Haha..Wouldn't that be cool, though?

Did you know that if you plastic-wrap 4 OCE's and glue them to your boots, you can walk on water?

Works even better with Browns, tho.

Well, that's only for the truly endowed... you fill the white (or brown) with water and freeze it before bagging it and gluing it to your boots. Done right, they can make good substitute ice-skis, even.

If you fill the boxes with extra D&D rules sets or Guidon booklets, that helps by providing more weight.

For substitute snowshoes, tho, it's much better to stick with the tried-and-true Tamo/Inverness setup. They're larger, the old paper holds its shape better when frozen, and the original bags provide a good seal. The difference in colors also keeps you from confusing right and left.

Darn, I need another woodgrain. :(
(Was that in total or per foot, Frank?)

AOK on the Tamos, however. :)
