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.

Yes, welcome, Pipswich.  The normal friendly greeters appear to be asleep.  :)

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.

Great story, Pip, and welcome!  FYI, there's a 1st print woodie for sale over at rpgmarketplace.com.  It's been floating there like a bloated carcass for a year or so, only slightly picked over by the gulls and nibbler-fish, the blood trail having long ago washed out.  Sail on out and sink your harpoon into it before the tax returns start rolling in!

Howdy, Y'all!

I'm John and I'm a gamer!  :wink:

I've been posting on this site for some time, but never introduced myself.

Started playing D&D in 1979 with the Holmes Basic Set and moved over to the AD&D rules shortly after. Played for a few years and then went into the service (U.S. Navy). Took a long hiatus because I couldn't find a decent group to play with in the service and college took up a lot of my time (I was a non-traditional student and grades were most important at that time). I played off & on for a few years, mid-90's, and took another major hiatus (marriage & family). Then in 2003, a guy named Gary Gygax invited me over to try a newer game he was working on - Lejendary Adventures. Who was I to say "no"? So, I was a part of his Thursday Night gaming crew for six years and had the pleasure of playtesting his Hall of Many Panes. I strongly suggest you play the adventure with LA rules only, it just doesn't work any other way - at least from what I've seen and heard. He was also nice enough to run us through the first three levels of Castle Greyhawk and one sub-level before his health issues developed.

With Gary's passing, I've been idle from gaming. But, it sounds like we're getting the group back together and trying to get Jim Ward to stop over when he can, should be fun.

Also, as you can see, I've been helping Jim Holloway with his website and selling a few of his old pieces of artwork from the TSR days! If you have any questions on the availability of any of the artwork, I'm the guy you need to query.

Thanks to all involved for putting up an awesome website. It's helped me track down some items that needed replacing after I had misplaced things over the years.

Hello everyone!

My name is Brian and I've been playing D&D in various versions since Feb of '79. I was a junior in H.S. and a friend called me up and invited me over to check out a new game he bought. It was the Holmes set and I was hooked (First character: Cleric - Mulgar the Merciful).   I've collected off and on throughout the years, buying and selling. My current obsession is Greyhawk and acquiring all the modules, sets, etc.  

Hadn't played for about the past 10 years due to work and kids, but my oldest is 12 and I've been collecting a complete set of 1st Ed. hardbacks to present to him on his birthday this year (he may get them before that, but don't tell my wife!).  He has been begging me to play so we have delved into the pre-painted minis and made up our own rules and now is little brother (9) is interested too! Ahh, the joys of geekdom!

Anyway, the Acaeum is a wonderful resource and I use it all the time.  I will ask stupid questions so be prepared!

Welcome to the monkey house, Brian!  :D

John, it is awesome to hear your official introduction... you make me terribly jealous of your experiences.  ;)

Hi everyone! A long time lurker, I've finally managed to stumbled across from Dragonsfoot and sign my self up.

My name is Jesse and I've been playing D&D/RPGs for around 20 years. I haven't played over-the-table for quite a while, but I've been fairly active online. Among other things I helped Richard Tongue produce OD&DITIES for a while (as well as play in his old online Classic D&D Pelinore campaign) and until recently I ran an online 2E campaign, which I sadly had to end due to conflicting 'real life' commitments. Um, I'm 33. My Mentzer Basic Set is the scanned copy of the Australian Edition here at The Acaeum. The main focus of my collecting is the 'core' items from each version of D&D, as well as numerous other titles and RPGs that have caught my interest over the years. My most recent acquisitions were the 5th printing of the OD&D "white box" set and 2E sourcebook Taladas: The Minotaurs. I like beer. Um, I think I'm running out of things to say now...  :wink:

Hi all,

My name is Tom, and I've only recently stumbled onto the repository of gaming knowledge also known as the Acaeum.

I'm 42, and I've been a gamer most of my life. My brother introduced me to chess, Panzer Leader, Star Fleet Battles, and eventually D&D. I was fortunate enough to be included in D&D sessions with my brother's friends, who are still my oldest and best friends, as well as my D&D cronies - we've been gaming on and off for almost 30 years.

I spent almost 20 years in the console/PC gaming field, which was pretty fun to say the least. I reached my professional geek zenith in 2000, when I was hired by WoTC. I worked with wonderful people like Jason Carl, James Wyatt, Sean K Reynolds, and Rich Baker. That gig only lasted a little over a year - curse you, Hasbro!

Collecting-wise, I'm mainly a minis guy. I still have most of my original books, modules, etc. along with a few random treasures like a near-mint first edition copy of ICE's The Iron Wind, and a mostly colored-in copy of The Official AD&D Coloring Album. My brother and I did the coloring, and since his passing a few years back, it's now a small reminder of time well spent gaming together.

I hope to pass along the joys of gaming to my three children. I think we're off to a good start!
