funny how you dont even look at things properly when you get hold of them sometimes isnt it?



two fun little things really:



i got Forgotten Realms Bloodstone Lands off coug for a few quid..... nice thing was it was signed by RA Salvatore!



and some time back i got a sorcerer's apprentice magazine - cant remember who i got it off - and a load of the articles in the magazine are actually signed by the writers themselves!



both pretty cool purchases imo and will slot very nicely into my own collection!

Spy that H1 poking out from the pile?  Sadly, no cover included (does it have a map on the inside, as with most modules?  Anyone who can send me a scan?), and I haven't inventoried ALL the flippin' counters yet, and some of the cutout buildings aren't there, but I'm pleased nonetheless.

No maps - comes with the Roster Book and the Adventure Book (both clearly marked with Bloodstone Pass on the cover page).

Yup, got the Roster Book and the Adventure Book.  Along with a pile of indiscriminately mixed counters and cutouts for both H1 and the Battlesystem Set itself-- that'll be fun to sort out!  :roll:



So I assume the cover serves no function (other than marketing) then?

Nope, it was just a crappy blue box.

(more than just that... but, regardless, everything else is a freebie given the fine looking (albeit punched) AH Titan, alone).

Was it even well known? I think it was listed in video games. I only found it because I spend most of my search time "piggybacking" on the hard work and early bids of others . . . :D

Ah, I don't use that auction searching software; just throw in a few keyword searches occasionally.

<creep1962> does make for a good watchlist, though; almost on a par with Deimos and Grodog.

Sorry guys, the Fun Find Locator Service (a.k.a. my bidding history) has been performing below average this week.  I'll try to tweak it a bit.   :lol:

My bidding history's not much use at the moment, since I haven't been offline a lot (no access after work hours at present), and don't have the spare $$$ since we bought the house.  



I spent time this weekend working up pics for my sale, though, got about half-way done.  Will start into the non-TSR and earlier OD&D stuff this week :D

Wizard of War: Games | eBay



I can guarentee that you would not have gotten that at that price if I didnt have to have to go out of town on an emergency this weekend. :wink:

Not specifically, but I figured it would be one of those nice to have things. :)
