But since all of us have pretty busy lives no content has been added to that in a long time. But it was a lot of fun while it lasted and everyone at Privateer Press was ace!

I'm not sure about the 'coolest' item I have but one of the items I'm very happy with is a shrinkwrapped version of the 1st print of the 1st edition of the Call of Cthulhu boxed set.


Welcome Ralph.
Love the Buccaneer Bass site. It really covered Privateer Press's Iron Kingdoms like no other site I've seen.  As well as gave me inspiration for my own site's compendium.

Thanks Shane, I'm glad you liked it. I was on the Privateer forum a while ago and it's still being referred to eventhough there's no content being added so I was really surprised by that.

I hope I'll be able to add something to this community as well :o)

I'm Jim I'm an Economist
34 years old.  Got into the hobby when I was 8 or so by a babysitter.  Didn't really get involved until I was 11 or 12 and received a bunch of books for Christmas.

Now I've never looked back for over 20 years.  I've saved a lot of stuff and enjoy looking over some of the old stuff from time to time, but I never thought about collecting.  Now I've got the money and the time to better care for the hobby that's made me smile for so long.

Just starting out as a collector and plan to make time to attend some trade shows (especially Gen Con, which I've not been to).  I'm pleased to meet other people who would stare at my series of bookshelves groaning under the weight of old paper for a different reason

Thanks for having me here on this forum.
I hope I'll get to talk more with all of you in the coming days, weeks and months (and years)

Welcome aboard Jim!
This site usually has a pretty good attendance at GC. Nice way to meet the members over a beer or eight!


And I could've bought these damn modules off the 1$ rack!!!

Welcome lokilokust!   :)  Ah time to get the feet wet again.  I like getting my feet wet too...umm...um....ugh....  :?  That didn't sound right.  Anyway, welcome.  8)

Welcome, lokilokust!

Can you see the old church tower from your house?

Welcome to both of you chaps! I popped by as a non-collector to get some info one day and stayed ever since :)

Hello Members,
My name is Gary, I'm 40, and I've been an e-publisher for 14 years--the unexpected result of making an English degree actually work.
This is the first forum site I've registered on.
As a small boy, I was fascinated with science-fiction and fantasy books like Dune, the Narnia series, and the Lord of the Rings.
A few years later in Junior High, I noticed some of my friends were disappearing into an empty classroom during the lunch hour. Curious, I followed them one day to discover them scattering "skeleton dust" in an imaginary battle using a pencil, paper, and dice; or fighting a "black dragon"--I thought dragons could only be a Smaug-like reddish gold--with a "cursed sword."
Shortly after, I too garbed my-(player character)-self in adventuring gear and joined our group, investigating the musty confines of Strahd's castle.
A few years later, responsibilities and accountabilities sadly replaced Fun--the "adventuring" being one of the casualties.
Until a frivolous eBay search two years ago.
Now, I look forward to those rocking-chair days when my friends and I are a bunch of grey-hairs too frail and crotchety to satisfy our sense of adventure by doing the "real thing." So we're on-board for a substitute: d&d, of course.
I've been focused on collecting commercial copies of FR and WG modules and boxed sets. My collection consists of a couple hundred (still missing 15 or so), including 1st, 2nd, and a little 3rd edition.

I'm grateful for the insights on collecting given by the active Acaeum members, and look forward to supporting the site as much as I can. I welcome the opportunity to get to know some of you in the years to come.
Gary (Novice Collector)

Welcome Gary, sounds like you've a sizeable collection already (in comparison to mine at least)
Hope you can waste many happy hours here and scouring for those missing items!

Dave   :)

Welcome puterdragon!  You do have a sizable collection.  You might want to avoid saying the, cough! cough!, "3E" word around here.  Them's fighting words!   :wink:  

Actually, there are probably a few folks who sneak a 3E looky now an then, but they do so only in a closet,...at midnight,...with a candle.  As you can see, these people have real issues.....just kidding....at least with the candle part.

Welcome again! :)

Hi Gary,

You certainly represent the basic Acaeum member:  40ish, been collecting a while, love of 1e.

NTRPGcon is in June and Gencon in August, I'm sure you will be making your first pilgrimage soon.

Welcome to the forums.

Martin

Welcome, puterdragon.

There are no novice collectors.  

There are only collectors who have not gone insane...yet.

The fact that you have logged on here means it is likely already too late for you.   :D

Pretty sure that's just a myth.
