Not to be a grammar wise guy or anything, but in the image for the proposed cover sheet should it not read as "...Part 2 of a series begun in 1993 ..."?

Cheers!

Having the auction finish at the end of the "printing phase" sounds too wishy-washy.  No one knows what that time is exactly.  Just set a date 7 days from the first bid you received.  Make the finish time something like 3:00pm EDT so people in Europe are still awake if they want to get a last dig in.

Cheers!


Okay, reasonable point. How about then,

AUCTION FOR D4 ORIGINAL WILL END SEPT.18 12N EDT

Good, great! now we only have to wait the end of the auction of the original item and to receive our numbered and signed copy!

...now, what's next Thork? You've pulled out a G-series, a D-series... now i'd say it's necessary a Q-series module!
:D

I am currently writing the D5: Khasa Ruhne City of the Forgotten Dwarves which, I think, will make a wonderful (pdf/POD)conclusion to the G4/D4.

I think this was a suggestion earlier/elsewhere, just wondering, any thought to considering a partnership with a publisher to help out...?

(I'd support that, probably many others on the forums would too)

In any case, please keep up the good work!

:)


I draw the line at collecting... D&D Towels.

Did we need: Jade Magi Sewer Crawl

Shoulda been: ".. from Pangreenia to Floratopolis, from mystical Treeonia of spectral Forests to Schruborial dimensions."  - The Forests of Leng

Just received communication from Bill Webb regarding the G4-9 series. So, I will let you know how that develops as it goes along.
As to the "old" 90's stuff; too small a market I would think. Maybe I'm wrong.

Assuming the ole 90's stuff includes the Evil PC ideas for modules you had.
On a personal level and as the Grandkids' DM I would dissagree with that.
Folks get tired of playing goody twoshoe PCs all the time.
Including 7 year olds... through 15 year olds.
They have all asked me (on seperate occasions) to let them play the bad guys for once.

I also (occasionally) want to go about doing the WRONG things with PCs too.
On that note, I have DMed scenarios wherein the PCs did bad things, thinking they were right.
One time they did what the client hired them to do.
The job was to wipe out a village of so-called bad humanoids (goblins).
No problem, Goblins are a menace that needs to be exterminated anyway right?
Turns out the guy who hired them was the Evil one and the Goblins were a splinter group that were actually good.
The Grandkids realised the mistake too late, they said WHO woulda thunk a village of Goblins were not bad guys?
It took them a long time to get those PCs back on the good side of the gods in that group of adventures.
That scenario helped them to start the process of thinking for themselves more than simply following instructions from someone they just met and got money from.

Perhaps my family just has a truly evil mean streak in us. :oops:
But I suspect we are not alone in wanting to at least get a feel for the other side of fantasy.
And it has been done before on a large scale before (sort of).

UPDATE CONCERNING THE D5

I think its done!
I will be finishing up the printing and shipping of the D4 ASAP, but just thought you all might want to hear the good news!

Now, here's the dilemma.
Earlier I said that the D4 auction winner would also get all my old notes regarding the D5. Since I do not have a printed original for the D5(since I just wrote it), do you all want that announcement to stand? Or would you rather have an open bid for the D5 notes, so anyone that purchases the D5 can have a chance to have those, too?

Let me know what you think.

Also, I am very nervous about the expectation level of the D5 and could use an opinion. Would you all be opposed to me sending a pdf to someone whose opinion I trust, to get some feed back?

I wouldn't change the conditions of the original's auction for any reason.

No problem. If you trust this person, you would trust him/her to do the right thing.  :wink: [/quote]

Agree with Chucho68.

IMO to vere away from your bid/auction items as announced at the beginning would basically make the auction no longer valid and all bids should be then voided.
If that is what you wish to do, then I think you should say so now before any more bids are placed.

I would not mind one bit for another person to look over your work.
I think it is a very good idea actually.

I am not altering the terms of the auction. Who ever wins the original D4 will also get the D5 notes I made back in 1994-5.

I agree with y'all on this one.
