What else sold? eBay shows no completed listings for that seller, probably because I have a UK account.


This week I've been mostly eating . . . gummy bears.

I imagine that the 3 interesting ones David was referring to are:



- The Tower of Elbrith (above, which rings some vague bells; maybe I saw this or played it way back in the day, at a con??)

- In Search of Santa's Sack @

That about right, David, or have you been tracking them for a bit longer? :D

Yep; second of the three; unless I've missed any hidden stockings/caches. ;)
Whereas Tower of Elbrith is more on a par with The Solo Dungeon. (2nd edition, that is, Mark *jk*)

All three. Or to Brette's US proxy as the case may be given the seller's stated shipping conditions.

...same date (well, not exactly, I guess, since it's not actually possible to deliver everything at once) ^^

Sent them to the USA.. My Google-Fu could only find one mention of the title

http://www.faqs.org/copyright/in-search ... y-systems/

Nothing on the game company and 1 mention of the guy..
Looks like he wrote "Better Game Mastering: Teaching Role-Playing" by Robert Harder in Different Worlds #8..

So it will be interesting to see at the end of the day..

Brette:)

*g* Was about to edit my previous post with a cut-and-paste from that link, but to add that I couldn't be bothered to recheck the precise date for the JG mod. Beaten by a couple of minutes again. ;)

congratulations Brette on that hard-to-find bag of goodies. i did not know about the santa's sack module until now. my guess is it will be a while before another one of those shows up...

Its always nice to find something new (oh.. and buy it as well).. highly annoying when someone else does and you add it to the list of stuff to get..

Its amazing to think that there is new old stuff still being turned up..

Brette:)

Just drop your wishlist into the Hobgoblin's Hat of eBay and something new is bound to pop out instead? :)
(Presuming Elbrith was also on /your/ searchlist, that is).

Actually I don't have many ebay searches.. something i should do more of..

My magazine/zine list is the next thing I want to concentrate on.. art has been taking up huge amounts of my $$ and my want list is down to a lot of hard ones.. need to track some down..

I thought you were concentrating on that already, Brette.

Lock up your Dragonlords and Trollcrushers. :lol:

Hey all, i recently won a C&C collectors boxed set for an ordinary price and... i found in each booklet 4 signatures of the authors and a small "6/300" below the signatures... this makes me think i got a copy of the "spartan print run": http://www.nobleknight.com/ProductDetai ... GenreID_E_

...is that correct? in case, is the NK price close to reality?

ciaooo

Yes, it is one of the 300 signed print run, but sadly no, the price is a fantasy. I sold a couple of these a year ago at around 30-40GBP, about twice the price of the unsigned edition. On a good day, you may be able to get US$75. I've not seen a signed copy on eBay in a while, but you may be able to close a private deal in the classifieds on Dragonsfoot or over on the TLG Forum.
