I've been a collector and an archivest and indexer, but I'm a scavenger at heart. Something like the character James Garner played in the movie 'The Great Escape' but with toys and games, collectables and antiques, instead of escape tools. Thinking about it, maybe I have been scrounging escape tools...

I've had a strange amount of luck in my finds, treasure hunting though the type of treasure keeps changing as the times change.

I haven't visted the Acaeum since it first went up. Think I sold a Daystar West module to someone who set the place up. I'm glad to have rediscovered the site and this forum.

Glad to be here
Jason


I thought I recognized the name.  I swear I have seen it referenced somewhere on this site...but cant remember where exactly.  Oh well...welcome (back) to the forums Jason.

Jason was one of the original sellers of RPG stuff on the internet way back in the day (early to mid 90s), along with myself, Dragonstrove, Titan games (the original incarnation with Quincey Kozoil), Sages guild, and a couple others.  Back when the aol forums, then the Usenet rpgmarketplace, were the mediums of trade before Ebay. A stand up guy.  Also is "connected" in the gaming community, I think he has some very informative Greyhawk indexes that have been published by the RPGA or in Dragon Magazine, I forget which.  A nostalgic welcome!

Better keep an eye on them Texans.  Every now and then they seem to get a case of the crazies.  Must be the oversized belt buckles and the 10 gallon hats.  Or maybe it is just the heat.

Welcome,

I'm new here myself but glad to see another long time gamer start posting.

My first taste of RPGs came from an Avalon Hill game called outdoor survival, but when I came across that first D&D boxed set I was hooked for good.

Well, I've been lurking for pretty much forever, so I suppose I should at least post in the Intro thread.

Howdy, another Texan.  :D

Greetings all!

 I've been playing games (mostly D&D and War Games) since 1981, about 11 years old.  I've had collections come and go but at the moment I have what I consider a large collection.  Once again, I'm considering a sell off.  I've always enjoyed live auctions so perhaps Gencon 2008...

 What I would like most is to find a good group of people to play the games I love.  Namely AD&D 1E and 2E, The Morrow Project, Call of Cthulhu, Chill 1E, Booth Hill 1E, MERP, and Cyberpunk.

 If you're in Central Florida and want to game, send me a message!  I live about 20 minutes North of the Treasure Coast.
