I wasn't aware that our royal family had belated taken up its offer and that we'd become Greeks, overnight... So long as the rest of the board don't expect us to come bearing gifts... ;)


Greetings, Richard! Know what you mean about time. :?
Well, after a few months visible around here you won't have any money, either! :)

Welcome, Richard!

Never mind Killjoy...he's still mad that court jesters were left out of the Bill of Rights.   :)

Good literary reference, Faro.

sadly tho, my friend, is thats the case here too....our country is also ran by muppets who may as well be court jesters.

when i see them in parliament in debate - its like watching kids in a schoolground....its pathetic to say the least...

ANYWAY.....too O/T so...

barbaroi - "all those foreigners who go around making bar, bar sounds rather than speaking Greek proper". That'll include Conan and most of the population of Warrington, I guess. :)


Thanks, Mark. And here was me worried the second part could've killed the thread and carried it away stone-dead, given that that was a bit of a Trojan hearse...

Good evening all. My name is Jeremy, I'm 30 and longwinded.  I've been checking the site for a number of years, but just recently caught on to the forum. I think I was one of the early-tragically late ones. I was die hard into the early TSR stuff when it seemed the hot ticket was bidding $75 on Dark Tower at  the Gen Con auction.  :lol:  My coolest collecting moment may have been when I got applause from Frank Mentzer at the auction for spending $40 on a module and confirming that even modules were, in fact collectible.  First person to guess what it was gets a prize!  I wouldn't doubt Frank remembers it, so sorry Frank, you're inelligible. :(  That was probably 1991 or so and oh how long ago that seems! My entrance to the forum is somewhat bittersweet as it coincides with the decision to liquidate much of my collection.  :cry: My second child was born in January (He's a baby Hill Giant; 17lbs at 4 mos.) The house needs some remodeling and baby needs a new pair of shoes about every 12 hours. Since I'm unwilling to sell my firstborn - some of the goods are gonna have to go. Most likely ebay, but you guys may be able to talk me out of it! Until I actually got to this point in my collecting life, I never really understood how many of these things are "one rings". :twisted:  I procrastinate to take pictures, I spend hours reading your posts and telling my wife it's "research" and so on. So anyone willing to be in a support group and help me through these trying times please step forward - but no discounts! Thanks for listening.

welcome jeremy & sojerboy!!

may your time here be long and enjoyable and mey your collections STAY in one piece :)

jeremy if you DO decide to offload your collection, a msg in the classifieds here might be a good idea before you consider elsewhere. where better than in the middle of a bunch o other collectors eh? :)

Howdy All,

Thanks to all the folks involved in creation , support and continued existence of this wonderful resource.  I've visited the Acaeum for a few years and have finally decided to start posting I'm a relative regualr on Dragonsfoot, another wonderful location...)  Although not as serious a "collector" as many here I still find great enjoyment and wisdom in the various boards and hope to be a frequent visitor/poster.

I've been gaming since the early 1980's and an addict ever since.  Now working on converting my 7 year old son to one of my favorite hobbies...he already has a spectacular collection of dice :D

Welcome Simrion,
Kudos to converting your son ! It's so fun watching my kids play and how much they love it. Watch for the post I put up ( hopefully later today ) about my youngest son and D&D that happened yesterday :)

Welcome to all of the new folks :D

Ligmancer, if you have specific Qs feel free to post them openly if you're not sure about an item's value, or to ping folks who catch your eye via email/PM:  I've never been steered wrongly by an Acaeum member's value assessments, either publically or privately.
