S4 in shrink, bought it at Gen Con 25
T1-4 in shrink
Dieties and Demigods with Cthulhu, NM condition.
H-2, H-3 and H-4 all in NM condition.

I am located just outside Toronto. Anyone in the area (or anywhere for that matter) drop me an e-mail [email protected]

Nice to meet you.  We need more Torontonians on here.  :)  If you work downtown, we can go for a pint sometime.

Hi,
 Been here a long time, just never registered or bothered to post.  This site is the greatest resource.  I know many of you from DF. I came across D&D almost 30 years ago and started with the Moldvay edition which I still have.  It was rough learning to play D&D with the swedish bikini team cause as a DM I could not bring myself to TPK.  :D  Years went by and after being unable to perfect a 15 sided dice I gave up the game for awhile.  One day while playing  yahtzee I rolled a "natural 20" with 3d6.  This of course brought me back to my original love, crayoning dice.  D&D isn't too bad either.     Lately, I have started buying some things off of e-bay (even some things I already own but do not have here)and have come across many of you the hard way (you people have cash!!).  

Please excuse the long post & silliness.
:wink:

I've been using the resources of this amazing site for so long in my goal of collecting the entire pre-3.0 D&D collection, thought it was high time I start talking to the folks who make it happen.

Well met traveler!

Hey, just joined today. I am really excited to start collecting some old D&D stuff (and by collecting I mean 'get back in my hands things I have held about a million times but threw away or lost over the course of 20+ years'). I started playing D&D back in 1983, and continued until the late 90's. I was in the Navy and we would play for hours to while away the hours at sea... I am 38 years old, currently living back home in Arkansas after an exhausting 10 year journey around the world. I am new to the collecting aspect, but am ready to delve in. :)
