Just noticed our newest member is Highermobility - presumably the winner of this (
** expired eBay auction **
). A good buy, and it's nice to see new names around the big items.

Introduce yourself soon my friend

Yet another newbie makes his way to Acaeum.

Great resource here. Found out about it from Dragonsfoot, wherin I also reside.

Not a collector per se, but I'm looking to replace worn out copies of stuff I had BITD, and get a few things I wanted, but never had the money nor opportunity.

Also newbie to EBay (same name). Didn't want to do it, but had to at some point I suppose. Got sniped in the last couple of seconds on my first target. There's a nice welcome for ya. [/i]

I guess I'm beginning to rely too heavily on Foul's acronym cursor-over-to-reveal thingy.  Apparently BITD is not in his list.  What is it?  And welcome Mr. Toad.  You're in for a wild ride here.

Heh. My primary residence is over on Dragonsfoot. I'm getting used to wild rides. Still working on going the full 8 seconds.

This will be as difficult to accomplish as getting a full collection, methinks.

"Nice site you've got here… Mind if I look around?"

To echo some other "newbie's"; I thought we were all dead and it was a 3.5v type (now 4.0 I hear) of world now…Imagine my pleasant surprise to see pages upon pages of alternately funny (sometimes unintended) and infuriating "sagas' of collecting, buying, and selling. This is my first post of any type, pretty much anyplace, ever. I've "lurked" here for about a month or so, not one for lurking I thought introductions were in order.

My 1st exposure to D&D was some time ago, Christmas of 75" to be exact, received the 1st of the box sets (not wood grain but you can't win ‘em all). The hardbacks, monos', and Dragon magazines soon followed as they came out. Sadly I was 8 in 75" and none too good at taking care of my things (I'm assuming that being the fate of many of those items…LOL). But like game refereeing & playing as I matured so did "taking better care of my stuff".

In regards to collecting AD&D materials I'm more of a minimalist, primarily interested in things that helped my refereeing or inspirations for adventures. By 85" I'd pretty much stopped buying mods altogether (I made my own). Mainly I collect vintage sword & sorcery, golden age sci-fi, and horror. Arkham House hardbacks, Weird Tales, REHUPA & Amra issues, esoteric materials such as chapbooks and private press by Necronimicon, Shroud and de la Ree being good examples…

As I'm new to posting, I'd appreciate it if I post in the wrong place being directed to the right one, I'm pretty quick on the "uptake" so shouldn't be too bad. Thanks in advance for a great site and your patience with a novice. :wink:

collectively (no pun intended) we'd probably be able to make a dent in the national debt with all those goodies we got as kids had we not used 'em as pizza plates, coasters...well you name it!

Those are some nice books!!  Quality choice of collecting...  and ones too that can get quite expensive if you are looking at the early ones.  

Welcome!

From another relative newbie, welcome, Pipswich, to the Acaeum and to the curse of D&D collecting!  :)  Good luck finding that 1st print woodgrain . . . .

I do seem to recall someone posted not long ago having just gotten a pinball machine.  The Burntwire Brothers, I think.

Hello to all,

I have known of this site, and have visited it quite frequently in the past months, so I figured what the hell, and signed up :)

My name is Jorge, born in Cuba, but living in Miami, FL for a long time. I am 35 and remember playing my first DnD game at the ripe ol age of 9 in 1982, ahhh the memories in the Caves of Chaos...

I have been collecting on and off for about 5 years...I have about 200 pieces or so..to be quite honest, I dont have alot of the rare stuff...but recently been more and more interested in expanding my collection.

This is a great site, with alot of great information, thanks for those that take the time to maintain the site, as well as how friendly the community is here to help each other out.

Welcome to all the recent newbies.  Your collections will grow; its a side effect of this website.  Another side effect is the longing to experience Gencon in Indy.  Many of us meet up at Gencon every year and have a fantastic time.  We even have an annual dinner to start Gencon off with a blast.  I hope that you will be able to join us in the near future.
