Not the most flattering of pictures.  But the only one I have on my PC at the moment.

Don't ask what I'm doing.

Hello everyone - I'm wishing to introduce myself in this forum so you can get to know something about me.
I'm a very old player: my first interest has been war and boardgames - avalon hill and SPI ones, then I've been introduced to AD&D. As a D&D player, one of the firsts in Italy, I began with the translation of the blue basic D&D box for my friends, and have been mastering ever since.
From there - it was around 1978 - my interest has revolved around RPG games, especially AD&D - and now I own a respectable amount of items. Gamer, collector, miniaturist, and also late editor of the first italian free role playing games magazine - Rune - that I published for seven numbers with a bunch of friends (and I lost a ton of money in the process  :?
More than a collector, I'm a all-around gamer, still playing 2nd edition AD&D at the ripe age of 40 with my friends - and still searching things to complete my collection.
Thanking you for this place, which helps me get updated on the market, I'm glad to know all of you, fellow gamers and collectors of the world, not wanting this little piece of dream fade away.

Ciao!

Killjoy, I think it will happen. I follow rare RPG items since some years now, and I found this site an invaluable help. So, thanks for the welcome!

Well, gaming communities seem to have "six degrees of Kevin Bacon" thing going on. :)

When you get out here, if you'd like to try to get together sometime, let me know. If schedules permit, we could meet at one of the local shops.


That'd be cool, as that Gator place you mentioned sounds good.

I need to free up some time.  What's the weather like in June?

Six degrees?

Nah - I reckon it can't be much more than 2 degrees.

Touche stedman,

It's amazing to travel 1,000 miles to a convention and bump into people from down the road in your home town. :)

Wow, I just realized that there were 38 new members to this forum just in February alone. That is a 10% increase in forum membership in just one month.  That is incredible.  Welcome all  :D  :D  :D

Yes, I'm one of those, but I had visited a number of times in Dec and Jan.

Hi, all!

I stumbled across this forum while evaluating some old games I'm looking to sell.  What a wealth of information!  I've been gaming, mostly SPI and AH games, since the early '70s, when I was in high school, and played D&D almost from the onset in '74-'75.  

I own a Second Printing woodgrain box set, a true first edition Greyhawk, Chainmail, 3rd edition, White Bear & Red Moon, Empire of the Petal Throne, and some others.  

Unfortunately, I have a daughter going to college next fall and I will have a tuition bill coming up.

Nice to have you aboard the ship, Danz. And well, I guess a lot of people will be very happy to help you part from your beloved antiques for a generous sum of money to help cover the tuition fees ...  :lol:
