Two things.

Paizo is currently (28/05/2011) selling a lot of old games at the MSRP from the nineties. This includes a lot of Ravenloft stuff and some Judges guild odds and ends.

I thought you might like to know.

I am hoping to trade my remaining 3.5 materials and Dungeon magazines for D&D minis. I posted on Paizo.com to this effect, but it is not really where people go to trade things. I know that this site is more geared to classic TSR collectables, but at least it is a trade site.

I posted the details of the trade I propose here:

rpgmarket.webs.com/apps/forums/topics/s ... ?page=last

I will cross post it somewhere here.


I have a trade at:

A site that desperately needs members.

Welcome Taliesin Lucifer Hoyle!  Yeah, these kinds of posts really only belong in the Classifieds Section.   Also, you aren't going to find generous enthusiasm for 3.5 or D&D minis on this site.  If I might be so bold, you'll find more interest on other sites like dragonsfoot.net and others.  8)

ENWorld would probably be the best spot.

DF's really (or at least supposed to be) TSR-era.

Thank you for setting me straight. I will post on enworld, and I will even brave the WotC forums to post there. I did not know that enworld allowed trading.

Welcome, Matthias.  

The Adepticon page was quite impressive.  Sounds like a pretty cool miniatures convention.  I was impressed by the video coverage and what was obviously a large number of gamers on hand.

The Gorgon Studios page is interesting.  How do the scale of these ancients miniatures compare to standard Dungeons and Dragons and/or Warhammer miniatures?

Thanks.

Yeah, AdeptiCon is a beast of an event right now. We get about 1500+ playing all sorts of miniature games, although our main focus is on GW, Battlefront and Privateer Press stuff. I am perhaps the only pro-RPG voice in the group!

All the Gorgon ranges are 28mm, so they would work just fine with standard 1" battlemats and all that. Most Warhammer stuff is actually more like 32mm, so our stuff might look a little small next to it. We are slowly working on building up some ideas for a Mythical/Fantasy line. We have a few already done (under Mythic World and Convention Models).

Hey, don't knock Florida!  The beaches in the panhandle more than make up for the ummm.... laid-back lifestyle of the natives.  Of which I am one.  A native, not a beach.  Well, not most of the time, anyway.

Welcome.

Good morning! Hehe I'm sure parts of Florida are wonderful. I can't help but be bias because I'm not here willingly and I miss Texas so much my dreams never fail to transport me back, every single night. Gainesville is Los Angels compared to where I'm living (Live Oak). Lake City has tattoo shops at least and you can purchase liquor.
 Moving on, I'm still getting my bearings here in this forum. Not sure what to post where. I'v got two Atari 2600s and many games if anyone is interested. Star Wars action figs from 70s and 80s too.
 Stay groovy

Hi all, I just wanted to check in and say hi. I was a decent part-time gamer back in the early days of D&D and still love the creativity and depth of the artwork. My main reason for joining is that I will be breaking up a great collection for a fallen family member (rip cousin bob) and I would rather the members here get first dibs. I'm hoping that you nice folks appreciate this collection as much as my cousin did. I'll be updating my signature as I discover new items.

Message to Mods: If I've broken any rules with the nature of this post, please ban me immediately. I don't want to make any waves.


Dispersing a deep collection of Dungeon and of Dragon magazines. I have Dungeon 1 thru 65 and Dragon 42, 46, 47, 49, and 51 thru 194 so far. More to follow. PM me with the holes in your collection and I'll see what I can do. Thank you.

Welcome Civilian. Your post is fine. If you want to get an idea of the worth of individual items try posting in the Collecting Appraisal Forum. When it comes time to actually inviting offers on specific items we have a Classifieds forum as well.

Welcome Civilian!

This is indeed the best place to get appraisals and advice.  It sounds like you are interested in a two step process, appraisal and then selling.  Well, there is a section in these forums to list appraisals and another classified section for selling, so going to the correct section will help you get what you want better.  

And if I might be so bold, when it comes to appraisal, nothing helps us help you better than pictures.  We want to know not only what the items are, but what condition they are in, inside and out.  Rusty staples, mold, mildew, smoke, highlighting and much more all change any appraisal significantly.

Again, welcome!   :)

The nail-your-head-to-the-floor committee will visit you tonight as you sleep.  :)

General quick-n-dirty suggestions:
  • Check the different "Indexes" pages off the main Acaeum page (The Acaeum) for descriptions and historical prices of TSR items.
  • Check the TSR Archive (TSR Archive) for product information sans historical prices.
  • Search completed eBay auctions for recent eBay prices.
  • Read the different Acaeum forum threads for whatever interests you.  Several threads exist with selling advice.
Post in the Classifieds section if and when you begin selling your items.  Classifieds is a no-reply section; you won't get follow-up posts, but you will receive Private Messages if you have anything good.  Resist lowball offers to take them from your hands.  :)

That's just my two-cents' worth.

All input is greatly appreciated. I'm through another bin and am finding some great stuff. I'll most likely start a Classifieds post over the weekend and will get some pics together. Most of the mags are in decent condition but I know that "sweet" doesn't necessarily mean Mint.

Take care and thanks again.
