Thanks guys (Daves)!!

It does sound tempting to keep it and get back into D&D... but I already have a lot of other hobbies that take up so much of my time and money. I'd rather sell this stuff to people who can really use it.

Hi, My name is George St. Louis and although I've been playing AD&D since I was eight (my Mom and her hippie friends taught me how to play!) I've only really been seriously collecting for about a year or so. Planescape and 1st edition products are the things that I'm really keen on, and it's great to join a forum of like-minded people-even if I now realize my collection is small potatoes! 8O


If you believe that ADVANCED DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS is a game worth playing, you will certainly find it doubly so if you play well.

There are no small collections, George.  There are only collections on the verge of going out of control.  

Joining up here was your first step into a wider world of wider bookshelves.

I'm Cameron DuBeers and I live in Austin TX.  I'm over 50 years old, and I've been rebuilding my long lost (through time and many moves) OD&D boxed set collection.  

Status of collection: complete.  Now I'm working on gaining the booklets or games I never owned:  Chainmail, Warriors of Mars, Swords & Spells, EPT.

Welcome Cameron, congrats on getting your OD&D set back together.

Hope you enjoy starting a collection which you never thought you needed...  :lol:

Welcome to the Acaeum everyone.

And yes, we would like to see all of you at the NTRPG Convention next June.
For those who dont know what we are talking about, here is a link to the Web Site.

http://www.ntrpgcon.com/

You can see the fun we had this year at the first ever North Texas PRG convention.
Many games were played by the attendees, and most were DMed by some of the biggest names in the RPG world.
The games can be viewed (in part) in video and there are plenty of still pictures to view as well.

ntrpgcon.com/index.php?option=com_expos ... ;Itemid=60

There is also a forum along with lots of other interesting things.
Signed, John... unoffically perhaps the biggest fan of NTPRGCON... :lol:

Been lurking for maybe 2 years, finally decided to register and post.  In a recent move, I 're-found' all my RPG stuff and did both a purge and re-fresh.  Sold off some of that oddball stuff that you pick up (Car Wars and Cyberpunk spring to mind), and even some stuff I 'liked' more theoretically than actual - some ICE MERP items that I never got into.

Got into D&D around age 10ish - still remember tasting pools in B1, and that damn illusion wall in Lizard King.  Still collecting old 1E stuff - first printings, fill-ins, etc, and started picking up some 4E (WOTC, Goodman primarily), even though it only vaguely resembles D&D at this point (or maybe we were all gritier and covered with dirt and gore back in the day).

Have a fair sized Vampire collection, and Deadlands (which original Pinnacle goes for fairly steep money though it's new, for some of the rarer stuff - the 'Back East' items, for example).  Started picking up some of the newer WW VTR line; might have the best production quality I've ever seen.  May also try and complete my early Paranoia items, which played for crap but is still pretty damn funny to read.

So hey!

Added: I like the thought of 'key collector piece', so: I've got the H Bloodstone series dating back to when I was a kid, and somewhere I picked up the GDQ supermodule & the A-series Slavers super even though I had the originals.  And I have the complete DL since it was one of my fav novels as a kid, I had to read the books.  But favorite, ever, totally dork style D&D collectable?  not even an actual module!  I've got the Gygax 'Gord' saga, from the greyhawk novels through the Thrazidun series where he got paid for how many times he could use 'chiarascuro'.  Super nerd style!
