Hello Everyone...
Grimtale here, otherwise known as Mark.  I hail from Mocksville NC and am 40 years old.  Started playing D&D in the late 70's and played up until about 1994 when my children came along.
I've been out of it many years but have a few big boxes full of very old stuff stashed up in the attic.  A woodgrain set is the prize of my collection it appears.

Ooooo!  Ahhhhh!  Welcome! 8)

Now all you have to do is invest about $50.00 is archival quality storage supplies! Bags, boxes, backing boards, etc....:?

Hi, just thought a post a quick note of introduction, since I responded to something in another thread. I've been playing AD&D since 1980, but stopped purchasing new product circa 1983, though I continued to buy and read The Dragon for a couple years beyond that (never subscribed, though). I have a small collection of early AD&D things in nice shape as well as a duplicate set of "beater" copies, but nothing especially rare, as well as 1st printings of Boot Hill, Metamorphosis Alpha, and some miscellaneous other junk. Currently I'm looking to pick up certain miniatures and some non-TSR odds and ends from BITD.

Hi there :)

Well ...I was born in 1969, July. I discovered D&D basic at the age of 9 when my uncle started as Dungeon Master. At the age of 12 i put all of my D&D stuff into many packages under my bed and started to sail races with my father. At the age of 17 a friend of mine who knew i was playing caught me in his house for playing and ... i took the "D&D/AD&D" virus again :)
In 1989 i started mastering 2nd Edition (as many as 17 players at the same time when i was used to :) then ... looked back under my bed and tried to catch every D&D/AD&D item i can buy but as my Computer scientist studies began, i had no more money to choose which ones to buy.
By now, as i have a very good job (and in pocket full of money because i won once "some money" to the French Lottery :)), i started again to track items i really want, as i am a collector.
Last summer for my birthday, my ex girlfriend Natalie (thanks to her !) bought a Silver Anniversary box and offered it to me !
I think i would have to change my current eBay ID to this one : "lurker_above", just because when i REALLY want a category 3 or upper module, i ALWAYS bid a clearly not reasonable amount on it   to be sure to win (killjoy32 clearly remembered an indescent bid from me on a RoleAids "Nanorien Stones" : caught just 3 seconds prior to end of auction :))
Unfortunately, the ones i'm currently searching (R-series, ST1, Basic woodgrain white box, ...) are up on eBay.com ONLY for continental / US customers  :(
If someone has a category 4 or 5 item to sell and would be pleased enough to tell me about it and to ship it to France (clearly not with M-BAG/I.S.A.L. lol) i would be very pleased TO BID VERY HIGH on it/them.
Or if someone is pleased enough to lend a bedroom and a web access anywhere in the US for ~1 week i will to very pleased to come again in the US).

I'm currently having 400+ D&D/AD&D items (~250 bought in the last 12 months)
I think that's all ... for more information about what i have found, take a look at my recently bought items on eBay (ID is the same ;) : currently expanding my own collection as fast as the Universe is growing ! lol

BTW : Natalie, a few other friends and i, have founded a french association (currently 93 active members) to preserve ourselves (french customers) from the bad habits of "FatPrincessCougie" : we used to help french newbie eBay customers against him if they have problems dealing with him, not preventing them to buy (it would be auction interference), but sending them advice in case they have problems about "so-called" VGC (maybe "lost during shipment") items. All of these from a "0" rated eBay account, just to avoid banishment ;)

Great deals near killjoy32 (great seller !), but wondering if i will or not buy items in his non-eBay shop (because i'm really happy to lurk for items from the dark, like a lurker above). I think ~240 customers hate me for these ...

So, i'm really sorry for them but ... it was like a game and ...... i won 99.99% of the time.

Kind regards to all of you,
Olivier
(with "lurking Natalie" on nearest house lol :)

I think, this time, it's REALLY all :)
Bye !

Welcome Olivier, from the other posts today, it certainly looks as though you and your friends have created quite some group against Cougie..

It would be great fun to see him crash and burn through 'lost' items and neg FB...

Anyway, welcome and have fun on the boards.

To derail the thread a little - Guydrin_Avalon has had issues in the past with me (which I mentioned here at the time).

What you have to say about Cougarrinard has merit, but pales into insignificance to your behavior toward me - Unless anyone else has absolute proof that DM Dave has told anyone to 'Fuck their Mum' - which Olivier, is something you were happy to do to me (at some length I might add).

If you like I'll be happy to post the ebay messages for all to see.


You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

Hi,

all stories have 2 sides.

Gyg had to be warned by a Moderator on another message board about his behaviour towards my wife.

I've had trouble with him myself, and I would personally never purchase anything from him.

I don't go on about it however (and won't).

Cheers,
Malc


I have a plan so cunning, you could put a tail on it and call it a weasel.

i remembered you, "got your games".

Please accept my apologies but -FB was left by Nat, not me 'cause i was on holidays at that time.

And if you had sent me a request to change -FB to +FB, i would have been very pleased to do it : i've done this yesterday to eBay member "kctoast" concerning a "ruined during shipment item" with no news from the seller for 15 days after the auction ; i didn't know he was on holidays and he sent me a message 10 days before back to his home as Nat did the same with my eBay account.

Just ask to kctoast (Krishan) and he will tell you what i did yesterday : reversing feedback, from - to +.

And ... for Nat's own defense, do not forget your item was announced as VGC (like the Cougster, so I, I am not off topic ! ;)) but was just between "FR" and "GD".

Gyg,

Again, apologies for Nat's written words from my eBay account : it often happened when she was angry about me :(

And to be clear enough with you : as you banished me from your items, i asked another friend of mine to bid upon one more for me with his account. And i can proove it : if i was the really bad customer you pretend, i would have asked him to neg you ...

Again, apologies for -FB left from my account by Natalie.  

But i wonder if you are good enough to be a member of the Valuation Board if you continue to do such mistakes : pretend to sell a VGC item and in fact we to receive ONLY GDC item.

Again, i consider i'm not off topic (sorry for you).

Maybe you think you would sink me with this but you have been trapped to your own game : A VALUATION BOARD MEMBER HAS TO TAKE GREAT CARE TO DESCRIBE HIS ITEMS AS THEY TRULLY ARE, and surely NOT to do as COUGIE : OVERESTIMATE THEM.

1 point each: GAME OVER !

Guydrin_Avalon

I'll assume you don't want me to post the full contents of our communications then?

Lawrenson

Of course there are 2 sides to every story - here's a link to the forum where I was warned by  a moderator on another message board.
http://www.ukroleplayers.com/forum/view ... 07&p=53101

I'd ask the same question, that I asked Guydrin_Avalon - just let me know if you want me to release the full contents of our communication

gyg - this thread is not the place to air your problems.

Olivier, unless you can substantiate your comments, you may wish to reconsider your questioning of gygs role on the VB so boldly.

Personally I have bought many items from gyg, both privately and via ebay and have never been disappointed with the quality of the item description or the service.

edit - As an aside, I have also purchased without issue from lawrenson. Both, I hold in high regard as members of this site and would not wish to become embroiled in anything between you.

Whatever i write, if you want, you can do it, so do as you want.

As i already told you, it was Natalie's written words, not mine.
I understand you're upset, but as i'm responsible to the fact Nat knows my eBay password, i'm not guilty for words written by her : she is ONLY my ex-girlfriend, and clearly not another part of my body and/or mind.

If you want her phone number and/or her email address, just tell me.

I will not take every moments i come here to apologize for words written from my eBay or Paypal account, or maybe email address (same password everywhere !) without my consent !

As i said before, i was shocked by her written words too :(
I'm in the habit to contact a seller when a problem arise : ask Alan (killjoy32) and Matt (shagymatt36) about what i've done upon received ITEMS WHO WERE NOT AS DESCRIBED ! Matt refund me ; Concerning Alan, i just warned him i'm a little disappointed (but for his own defense he was in a hurry to go to Mongolia to his race so he uploaded items quickly "just for me" so i didn't neg him for the little DL5 mistake he made). Hope this is clear enough : before bidding, i read all terms, and if i had been at home, this kind of problem will have not arrived, because i had done AS PER YOUR TERMS : contacted you !

I understand your point of view but you have to know this : she left me because i said her to take her packages and to leave. Just because it was a hassle to discover -FBs left by her from my eBay account to other eBay customers WITHOUT MY CONSENT (as you can see,i begin to use "cougie's words", as i begin to be VERY DISAPPOINTED BY YOU, and really think to act as him if you don't stop very quickly).

"Thanks" to stab me again for this : you surely were upset, but i live all days at less than 100 feet from a woman i'm still loving with but was unable to restrain concerning her bad habits.  

I understand you were negged and so that you were very disappointed because of it TOO, but think about this :

* as i remember, when coming back home, Nat said me something like that : "if i had sent him a message, i would have been told to send the item back to him, with shipment cost for me : he had to assume his mistake ! not me"

* i don't really know what happened thereafter, AND THIS IS NOT MY PROBLEM - whatever you will post here, what was written was written - and i'm sorry by the way she answered concerning your family, but your reaction here is like a child : you were pissed off by her, so now you claim for revenge !

Please don't be stupid and stop this by now because i would never accept to be judged guilty for words written by my EX-girlfriend. Do you understand clearly this ?

I accept the fact i've done only one mistake : to tell Nat my eBay / Paypal / email password.

But you, please, next time, as a  respectable member of the Valuation Board (or i hope so you are ...), please try to describe items you sell MORE accurately. Please, accept the fact you've made a mistake concerning this item, and that you have to share responsibility for -FB  left by NAT from my eBay account TO YOU. As Cougie wrote : "anything else is a waste of time, FOR ME !" (beware, because i'm starting to become another Devil-Cougie ...)

I hope you will understand and respect my point of view : if you claim for revenge, i can add you in my list of members allowed to bid upon my items : bid on one of them, won it, ask for total including shipment cost (no packing, no handling), pay it, then i will be very pleased to send it to you - not as "signed for" then when it arrives leave me a -FB too : i will have to look a it for a full year, as i did concerning -FBs left by Cougie.
Please accept to do this, but please stop to hassle me for words I never wrote, ok ? I'm too sad about Nat & I, so please LET ME OUT OF YOUR STRUGGLE WITH NATALIE OR YOU WILL REGRET IT DEEPLY !

>>>
Last week, i warned bclarkie and killjoy32 about a french seller who translated M3 and CM3 modules into french, who buy U.S. CM3 & M3 modules, to resell them in France with his translated modules : CM3 and M3 selling prices haven risen 3 to 6 times beyond normal selling price because of this, so i decided to restrain his activities : i bought every M3 & CM3 on auction in our planet to stop him, even trying to buy one translated M3 from him to send pics to you all, Valuation board members, but i got no answers from bclarkie ... so i really consider i loose my time with you all, "so-called valuation board members" : so i consider you loose your time with me, and you would better try to stop this guy too.

Or you will have another true problem, as i can do as Cougie did : buy every item i want prices to explode : i have more funds than Cougie to do this. I hope you want to avoid such a mistake from you, just because it seems you are a responsible and reasonable customer, and i really hope the Valuation Board don't want to have one of his members contributed to the creation of a second Abomination on Earth : another Cougie ... but a cougie with ~90 littleprincessfreya customers/accounts able to bid with and/or for him.

If you upset me too much, i will have to claim for revenge too, asking to ~90 french eBay IDs to buy something from you (i'm able to pay their won items) and then ask each of them to leave a -FB to you : i don't want it, but if you continue to harass me as you currently do, you have to know it would be the best way for you to loose your powerseller status VERY QUICKLY ! Hope this is clear enough for you to stop it INSTANTLY.
I'm sure other members of the Valuation Board will understand the fact i can do more to stop you.

Yesterday, i came here with peaceful intents, but as many sellers who have bad habits have learned it with me, if i'm upset by someone he will regret it very quickly : the last one is this french M3/CM3 translator who earned a -FB FROM ME because he didn't send me what i paid for : he made a refund, so he was told to eBay as a "non-selling seller" and warned by them : funny, but he didn't sell other items, as if his eBay account was suspended :)
As many among you know about it, i can be very reasonable - as i have told in previous messages - but when i'm like Gary Oldman in the "5th element" movie, i can become very VERY V-E-R-Y DISAPPOINTED (clearly not able to write something like Nat did with my account) : if you try to rememorate me again what she wrote (i only want to forget it because it is the reason why we no more live together!), i swear i will come to UK, i swear i will catch you, and i swear i will use your head as a ram to open a way through the front door of Cougie's pitiful small cottage, and i swear i with throw you to his head, until you or him no more moves ! lol

It would be a very funny epitaph on your tomb : "R.I.P. - K.I.A. to stop the Cougster !"

Consider all of these as a free peaceful warning, a proof of open hand to you (i'm not an AD&D 1st edition monk, so no risk for you to take physical damages :)

As B4 : do as you want, but you were warned about what may happen to your eBay account for such a foolish act from you ... :'(


Really hope communication will ever exist on the future, so we can find a way to sort it and to live in peace.

Cheers,
Olivier

p.s. : now it's time for you to bid on one among my pitiful items : your allowance had been set to do as you want :)
p.p.s. : if i can do something to appease you, even telling Nat to discuss with you a little to appease you, just tell me ! And ... please erase my eBay ID from your forbidden list, as i'm currently interested in some of your stuff and prefer to avoid to tell one among my 90 friends to bid upon it ... for me :) as Virginie did on May/June (she lives in Quetigny / zipcode "21800", and i was here to tell her what kind of feedback to leave to you : a + FB (many buyers act as me, but i assume the facts i've done on eBay : telling other to bid for me ; i have asked an eBay Counselor if i can do like this and he just answered : "sorry i don't listen words coming out of your mouth on the phone : please try again ! lol. Hope it is clear enough : not seen, not caught !"
p.p.p.s. : i have chosen a new password : that's all i can do. And what about you ?
