Nice haul, davidc.

On a trip to a backwater town in BC, where I was visiting my Dad, I thought I'd check out a couple of game stores and I picked up a copy of Drow of the Underdark for 3.5. It's htf back home, and I definitely wasn't expecting to get it on a whim, and at 3/4 cover price (after some talking) as well.
No plans to move there though--my Dad and I couldn't cohabit the same place. <smile>
But there's lots of room for more gaming tables up here when the influx starts.

One step closer to completing my Metamorphosis Alpha-related collection:




** expired eBay auction **




Now if I could just find WD 1 in comparable shape at the same price :).

Could not hit the BIN fast enough on this:




** expired eBay auction **




I believe I have just 5 copies and the supplement to go before completing the collection.

As it has now safely arrived in Australia (extremely well packed I must say), I will confess I was the winner of this item:




** expired eBay auction **




It has been on my Most Wanted list since I started collecting roughly 10 years ago and it is the first one I have ever seen.



I noticed five people including myself attempted to snipe with bids well over $100 in the last 30 seconds and I know some must have been fellow members. Sorry guys and gals, I just couldn't let this one get away!!!!

Nice pickup!  I would have been in on the bidding as well if I was around and saw the auction.  Its definitely a nonTSR gem.

Wonderfull win. I was one of these bidders. I didn't think that so many guys would bid. I should have bid higher :(

I am really envious. The first copy I saw.



I asked the seller when he listed it, and he said that his father in law was a friend of Dillow and played with him back in the 70's. This copy was given to his father in law directly by Dillow. A piece of history!

the only one i had ever seen before this one is the one i own, and i doubt  mine is in as good shape (have to check later), nor is it signed by Dillow. Very cool, congratulations!

Ever since I saw the Witchfire Trilogy adventures I've been interested in the Iron Kingdoms books. I recently won a copy of the trilogy but it never arrived, this auction not only had the hardcover trilogy but all the core rulebooks in one go for a hell of a good price.

Do you remember where you grabbed your copy?

Yep, it was on Ebay.  Although it is probably more 4-5 years ago now.  I picked up a number of other nonTSR items from the seller at the time and didn't really know what the High Fantasy one even really was.  I believe the seller was "barents1234" on Ebay.

If it was barents1234, all his stuff sold in 2006 I just looked to his FB and we were severalAcaeum members to buy from him.
But I didn't remember this book at all  :(

So... it means that the next copy will pop up in 4-5 years  :?

Whatever makes you think that, Jeremy? Nicely taken. ;)



Did you already have the combat screen (signed or otherwise)?

Ca'n't recall seeing too many of those, either.

I can vaguely recall pushing up the price of your auction to around $66 and being the second highest bidder.  I probably have the auction saved around here somewhere too.

Yes. I have a NM one I picked up from a retailer in Canada a number of years ago (not signed). I don't remember the details, just that it wasn't on ebay and I found a shop with one through google searching. I contacted the shop and I believe it was the only one they had. It still had the 25 PC sheets. I put a short description of it on the wiki.

Interesting to see that some character sheets are included. The only copy I had seen was the one that TFM won.
And the recent one on ebay does not include them.

So, who won the Screen? David?
