Condition: Lightly used RPG box set missing the box
This box set has gone missing, but the books inside have been cared for. Books may have a crease in the spine, or dog ears, the interiors of the books will be in great shape, and all inserts/maps will be included. There may or may not be original dice in this set. Any specialized dice will be included. An excellent copy to use

Ya, its definitely a reputation thing when you only need to read part of the first line to know who it is.

I think you're being WAY too hard on these guys. I mean, I thought all of you gamer-types were good at using your imagination  :)  Why must you be so literal?!

I haven't seen one of those T&T a$$holes over here on the threads in a while.
I do think it's funny that muppets buy and then feel like they got screwed over though.
It's almost Darwinian watching them evolve into enlightened eBayers.

Kind of makes a mockery of anything they have ever said, will ever say about making things right with their stock photos etc, blah, blah, blah....

Noticed that their +FB has dipped below 99% now too. Not sure when that happened, but sure it was over 99% normally..

Maybe they're using the box for some cake that may/may not have some icing!
I needed a good laugh--thanks.
