I've been playing since 1981 (notice how I cannily fail to reveal how old I am). D&D, AD&D, RQ, WFRPS - if it's a fantasy RPG I've played it and it occupies an unhealthy amount of shelf space. I've recently decided to sell off almost all my collection. I'm keeping a few items and looking to buy some old stuff, but the rest is going.

You can never have too much of something you didn't need in the first place.

Recently I had a setback in my collection...my mono G series, all in NM condition, walked away from my desk at work.   :x  that'l learn me.

Looks like I got my Mono G's back, and then some!  I'm going to keep all the Mono's, plus Gamma World and RG and sell the rest.

Hello all, I have been playing D&D on and off since the early 80's.  I most recently really got involved with a 3.5 campaign about a year ago.  That sparked my interest in taking a look for the old stuff I used to have when I was a kid.  I just recently discovered this web site and since have probably visited it over 100 times, lol.  It is a great tool when browsing ebay.  Anyways, I'm glad to have found a community with the same interests as me and I'll see you all on the boards.

I thought that it was decided that we didn't like new people!

(J/K - welcome to the forums - but remember Q1 is crap and all JG stuff was printed on toilet paper :D  :D  :D )

Hi all, i have been frequenting this site for years and thought its about time i joined.I must say its an informative, fun, humourous and witty place to be.I always have a good laugh reading the forums here.
Anyway a little about myself, i am Irish, living in London UK and have been playing D&D PNP and computer games since i was about 15.So basically i have been playing over 25 years now.I was never really a collector until about two years ago when all my original D&D items got
slung out from my folks home in Ireland (i will not go into it again,see my
other post under shady dealers).So there i was minus all my original D&D
stuff that i initially bought to play with not to collect.So i have spent the
past two years building my collection back up.I now have about 150 seperate D&D mods,rules and magazines again.Nothing really expensive
(Sealed Silver Anniversary Boxed set?).Second edition original D&D boxed set?Basically a good copy of most early OD&D items and First edition items.I now play D&D in Neverwinter Nights computer games
Some of the original PNP conversions of old D&D mods are really good.
Im a 3D modeller so i also have a custom content team called the CCP
who models original creatures from the original First edition Monster Manuals and Fiend Folio for the Neverwinter Nights game.
Anything in my book that makes NWN more like the original PNP experience is OKAY by me.

Neverwinter Connections is a good site.I generally play one of the custom
mods online with a few other team members.

Do you build mods yourself or just play?

I do a little of both, I ran a server for almost 2 years.  Currently I am on the mod team on a Serious RP server working on some small projects for them ( if I ever get enough time that is)

Yeah! NWN is definately more than just a computer game.For a lot of us it
is also a hobby like D&D.

Just wanted to say hello.  Kinda stumbled across this site by accident, and was glad that I did.  I am one of those older gamers (I'm 43) that started playing Dungeons & Dragons back in 1977-78.  Was president of my High School (Oscar A. Carlson High, Gibraltar, Michigan) game club in 1980-81 (first year that the school allowed it and was pictured in the yearbook).

I spent a majority of my game time as the Dungeon Master for the various groups I played with.  I ran a number of different campaigns for the groups...mostly using my own material.  I did however use the campaign material published by Judges Guild for a number of years (mainly because it was unknown to most players and offered a good deal of supportive material).  I look forward to future work in that forum, as I do still have that material.  I even have my signed Christmas cards from the Judges Guild staff during those early years.

My days as a D&D gamer kinda feel to the wayside by the mid 1990's as group members aged and found other interests.  I now find myself playing MMORPGs such as Anarchy Online.

I must admit, after finding this site it prompted me to start digging out my old game materials...if only to remind myself of those good old days  :roll:

Anyways...look forward to some conversation with those of you who still remember those early days.
