Thanks for the warm welcome Hermit-much appreciated!  I look forward to introducing my girls to the hobby if they happen to be so inclined in a couple of years :)

Hey everybody! I started collecting OOP D&D/AD&D modules and resource books about a year ago. The last time I played D&D was in 1991, well except for an extremely boring PBeM game. My collection is coming along slowly, but have decided recently to spend more time and money making it bigger. I use the same user name on ebay, and have maybe purchased from some of you, or asked shipping questions. I look forward to our future dealings.

Since I've posted elsewhere without an intro, I'll post an intro. I have a little collection that I've recently started expanding. Mainly stuff I remember from when I used to game as a teen (a long time ago in the late 70's and early 80's).

A shout out to any Winter Warriors out there. Those were good times at FLB. :)

Hmm slightly arse about face post as I have already posted in another couple of threads a little while ago  :?  I played D&D as a 10-14 yr old and 20 yrs later I started to feel nostalgic, a fairly typical story no doubt :). Not a serious collector in any way but still looking for a couple of bits in the classifieds. Seems like a pleasant and interesting forum this . :)

No worries, Alpha ... I still haven't introduced myself to these clowns. It's right there on my to-do list: "post on that 'introduce yourself' thread." I guess it just never happened ...

We'll it only took all of one post for us all to figure out you were a jack-ass anyway. :twisted:  So who the heck needed any more of an intro than that?  :P  :lol:  :wink:

Okay, that does it! Prepare to never win another copy of White Plume Mountain ever again.

On second thought, I am calling Draco and seeing if I can borrow a stack of B2s to barter with.  :wink:

Hum.. you do that, and I'll credit you as providing the first 4th edition Judges Guild product image on my site, and a favorable review about how you have seen the errors of your ways and just love WotC for making 4th edition :)

Hello all,

I've been lurking here on and off for about a year, and finally decided it was time to register. Just to give you a little background about myself, I started playing AD&D around 1980 and stuck to 1st edition through circa 1995 when I packed away the books and mods for about a decade. Recently I unearthed them, and have been thumbing through them out of nostalgia, and purchased a few replacements for the more ragged items at my FLGS and elsewhere. Never done eBay, which from I've read here seems to be the most cost-effective way of acquiring vintage AD&D stuff. I'm definitely "small time" in that my entire collection consists of about 50 items (not including Dragon magazines), and almost all of these are what you'd consider "commons", except for a 1st printing of Deities & Demigods and a couple of other odds and ends. My main goal is to eventually own NM (shrinkwrapped if possible) copies of my favorite modules from back in the day, so I can feel free to play the heck out of the ones I already have if and when I can find a group.

Welcome Go-Captain Suzdal!  Glad to hear you've finally decided to take the plunge.  

By the way, you picked a heck of a week to start looking for stuff on eBay.  There's a strike going on this week, but there's a lot of auctions to consider.

As you peruse these auctions, make sure you take advantage of our collective losses and pains and familiarize yourself with which sellers to avoid.  The really bad sellers are not too numerous, but there are enough that most searches will turn up one or two.

Again, welcome!

Welcome. :-)

eBay is not the only place to find older D&D items.

There are other web stores such as Noble Knight Games that carry many ODD and 1st edition items.

The advantage of eBay is that if you wait long enough, you may be able to find the item you are searching for at a decent price.

If you have a "want list" post it in the classified section of this forum and some of the sellers may be able to help you out.

Thanks guys for the warm welcome, good to be here.

I've done a few searches on eBay just to see what's out there, but haven't decided whether I want to go through the hassle of opening a PayPal account and all that jazz. I have purchased from a couple of online stores (Amazon.com, TrollandToad.com, don't think Noble Knight was one of them, but not sure). I've been generally pleased with what I've found and the deals I've gotten, but it does seem like some of the web stores (esp. T&T) are a bit pricey compared to eBay. Maybe I'll post a want list here at some point.

Thanks again,

Suzdal

Welcome Suzdal

There are plenty of online stores that sell the older rpgs, but finding deals usually is a scavenger hunt.  For finding shrink wrapped stuff though Ebay is probably the best option.

Here's the link to the chat Al is referring to: Chat Room

Hi, all.  :)  I am extra excited to find this place.  I haven't really kept up on things in AGES, so I only own 1E stuff and a few 2E items.  My 1E collection is almost complete, actually.  I have a few more items to get to have pretty much everything.  :)  hehe  I am a bit of a completist.  I kinda regret not getting certain items when they were released.  lol  At the time, I would pass things up if they didn't interest me enough.  Oh well.

Anyway, enough rambling from me.  Hello to you all.  :)
